Life on the edge of the swamp. The only deer I've seen so far was a yearling button nub. I think he still had milk on his lips, so I let him go by.
I took my grandson out for the youth only hunt a few weeks ago. 2 deer came in about the same size, i thought they were does. Oh well, i would have let him taken this one anyway. It's only his second deer and he was pumped. He is already getting meals out of the deer.
Nice shot, young man. Congrats!!
Make sure they are dead, before you try to gut them. That's really bad, not the first time a deer has returned from the dead. Had an elk do that once when I was about 16 yrs old. I got out of the way as he ran off. Piled up about 100yrds away. The elk on my wall is there because he surprised me. Circled around behind me while the cows had my attention. I put 4 rounds in him as he came at me. the last one was between the ears. He stopped close enough to touch him with the barrel. Almost gave me a heart attack at a young age. When my brother got there, he said he thought I was about to pass out. I have a painting called "In too Close" that my hunting buddies got for me after that. Hope that head wound heals up fast.
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
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.
Those are the best tasting.
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!
She does look funny. Happy new year!!
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.
From last month north of Denver in the foothills
There are a lot of these this size along the front range
Holy Crap!!! Incredible!
Bravo, lads- glad you got the kitty before kitty got you.
EDIT: in looking at the pic again, is that one dog humping the other one?
We're going to need a bigger nope.
Wow that's a big kitty. How much does one like that weigh?
Do people eat cougar or just hunt them for fun?
