    Holy CRAP!!! Gonna need a few stitches!
    Dad taught me to watch the eyes for blinking. No blinks, prolly dead. And then toss a stone or a stick at 'em. Shoot them again if they flinch.

    Here's a doe I took last year in Iowa.with my 450 Bushmaster. Factory Hornady loads. I've cooked up some 200 grain Barnes loads that I've clocked at 2600 FPS I'm excited to try this year.

    I got in my stand this morning and had visitors. The fence is at the top of the hill, cow pasture is about 100 yards thru the woods behind me. Been hunting here 10 years and never had the cows come this far into the woods, they have came a little into the woods and then went back to the field. Today about 8-9 of them IMG_0620.jpg surrounded me, one was scratching its head and neck on my ladder stand and it shook the heck out of me stand and all, i just laughed.

    Merry Christmas!!
    I got up and decided to go get in the stand, it was already day light but thought of starting later and hunting later. You know, gotta mix it up.
    Saw 8 does, haven't been seeing that many, no bucks. I decided to take a doe. Dressed 80lbs

    Is it just me or does that doe look like a goat from this angle? Happy New Year Phil!

    50 yards from my blind December 20th 430pm broad daylight during the last week of muzzle loading season. Never seen this deer or had it on camera before. Biggest deer my Dad has ever seen in his 54 years of hunting our property. Of course I was getting ready for work that evening instead of hunting. Couldnt sleep for a few days after I saw the pics.

    Bravo, lads- glad you got the kitty before kitty got you.

    :thumbup

    EDIT: in looking at the pic again, is that one dog humping the other one?

    I think they are hooked together with a two dog coupler.

    I have been told and have overheard many successful lion hunters say it is very good - the newest white meat!
    Very similar in taste and consistency with pork...field care is always key in wild game. Win win between predator management success and fine dining - bon appetit!

    I've heard many people prepare it like a pulled pork. Steven Rinella has commented on how you couldn't tell the difference....
