    Pheasants in ND this weekend.

    This dog climbs 14ers for exercise. 3 days of going hard and she insisted on riding in the cab. :lol3

    Got out last weekend and gave the old Ithaca a little exercise. Made stew over wild rice with these tasty little guys. Great action!

    This is NOT my wolf. It was trapped by a bud of a hunting bud in Adams County WI
    It was a 70# male

    This is the first year here in Wisconsin we have a wolf hunting/trapping season

    And I will go against the grain of this thread and show a deer I hope to get
    This was taken by a trailcam Oct 3rd on some property I own and hunt on

    I jumped him on a dirt bike last Sunday so he is still breathing
    but his neck is twice the size it was when the was taken
    he was tending a hot doe-it is full ass rut here in So Wis

    Went blackpowder for the first time this year, had to sit out the last few season (I went scouting, but couldn't fire the 7mm because of the shoulder replacements) and lucked out (as in got caught with my shorts down, I didn't expect to actually draw :lol3 and had to hurry up and get a muzzleloader so this was a real treat!). I usually get cow tags, this has only been the second bull I've taken, so doubly exciting! Season was early and short, September 8-16th, it was hot hot hot and the until I hunt in is mostly elk wintering grounds, but I know it very well and even with far less animals than usual, I was into them every day which was a blast. Mid week I finally got my opportunity, it wasn't "Sherman Tank" the massive bull I'd tracked opening day, but this young 5x5 looked mighty fine, I'd already blown one chance with him the day before. this time everything was just perfect-he started out about 120 yards out, I got a little closer and was patient and ended up with a solid lung shot at about 80 yards. He just looked up at the sound of the shot, took a few steps, started to nibble grass again, then dropped like a rock. Never realized he'd been hit. Best, most tender elk I've ever had, even the tip and arm steaks are like filets, absolutely fantastic. Probably due to a combination of factors, a young bull (about a 3 year old), early in the season and before the rut got going (the cows weren't even talking yet), very good in feed (about 300 pounds of processes, de-boned meat), no stress/adrenaline and an excellent processor-they did a great job.
    I really like the early season and hunting with open sights is a blast :thumb

    And the pups are loving the treats, nothing goes to waste! :rofl

    Nice one, Nat! Congrats on being able to shoot again!

    I turned in my elk tag this year since my hunting partner was 7 months pregnant... and I'll never be able to haul my own elk out unless there's a good bit of snow. I still have my either-sex Plains whitetail tag coming up in December, though. Should be a hoot.

    Thanks Mike, I was pretty stoked to say the least :nod
    I've really come to enjoy hunting by myself and I'm really grateful to have access to & through private land that affords me to do so and neighbors eager to pack the elk out for me on their horses if I get something down. But this bull was nice enough to make it easy for me that morning :clap after I'd tracked him through hell and high water the previous days, it's almost as if he back-tracked me and just about wandered into camp, so all I had to do was drag him down a hill a ways and I was able to get to him from there through a pasture. Easiest ever, didn't have to quarter him at all :nod
    I didn't draw a deer this year, the right shoulder is bad enough as it is, no need to push my luck and I suck shooting left with a long gun, far to risky.

    Didn't realize you were preggers-congrats to you and Kate :D and good luck with your Whitetail! :deal

    first day of modern firearms deer season opened this morning. :clap

    Toad and I went out this morning and the only thing i saw was this "calf killer" he was just coming out of a field that had cattle in it.

    went out this evening and jumped a nice buck, i tryed to out flank it and sat down to wait it out, but in about 10 minuts i heard the neighbor's gun go off, so at least i know they got a nice buck.

    Beautiful buck. Congrats!

    And this is really weird but you're the spitting image of my hunting buddy Bob. It's uncanny.

    Be careful not to feed the pups uncooked organs.

    Hey Natalie!!!!

    Great to see you around!!!

    Nice one with the smoke pole!!!

    I"ve been playing with iron sights lately too. It's become way too easy to blast a doe with 12x duplex. the iron sights are fun.

    I'm headed back to Venice to blast some more ducks tonight, I'll post pics later!!

    Got this one yesterday afternoon in the woods that are behind my house.
    Decent 6PT for around here, took him with a black powder rifle at about 12 ft down and 10 feet out from my stand.
