A buddy shot up my decoy pretty bad on opening day. I fired an Instagram shot over his bow...
He responded via text...
Five months later I finally got around to it. His wife is going to hang it in his garage...
20lbs. and 47steps away
Here are a few from cross the country, I'm mostly a whitetail hunter but I'll hunt anything!
Called a Jake in for my Grandson, the next day i called a long beard in for myself. We got another long beard the next weekend but didn't get a good pic.
640 am 22#
Got my turkey license again this year. No idea why. They run laps around my house when I'm doing stuff in the yard. The second I grab my Model 10 (yes, its about 100+ years old) they're gone.
Another successful draw!
Congrats on your draws.
What state is that?
The shoulders and hams you can. I've had the backstrap out of them. Cut into cutlets, battered and fried. Same with bobcat. It's excellent.
Gun nuts might appreciate this one. My last mule deer in MT. And probably my smallest but I had to get tagged out during this weekend due to time constraints and I desperately wanted to shoot one with my original Krag-Jorgensen. I loaded the Nosler 220gr. Round noses that are designed to open at .300 Blackout speeds to about 1,800fps.
I found him bedded from about 300yds but wasn't 100% comfortable at that distance. I low crawled to 180yds and I knew I could connect at that distance 10 times out of 10. Let him have the first one and it sounded like two brisket slapping together. He stood up and turned the opposite direction all in one motion so I gave him another one into the opposite shoulder. He didn't move after that. Those Noslers worked perfectly.
Finished out the hunt getting my buddy tagged also.
Fell into some small game as well.
Not a bad day at all.
I do hunt deer but they are not my prefered choice for hunting, i think years as a culler in NZ in the 70s killing and Hooking them up to choppers dulled my love for the sport, and during all those years the one thing i missed was the Geese back home. Many who go down three have reported missing the geese back home here.
So here are a decent trio of sikka from over here, and a few c fox and Water fowling pics i only hunt shorelines and i pass shoot mostly geese and duck and i never get tired of it.
I had a little luck on Mother's Day night.....kind of a present to myself. I have a small piece of land that a friend owns and allows me to hunt. it's 25 mins from my door...but he won't allow me to have a feeder for pigs. We have a population, but they're small and do not seem to sleep on Rob's property. So I have taken to digging a deep hole, filling it with corn then covering with rocks and branches. I refill it once a week if I can. After 2 months of doing it....it paid off. Here is the #212 result.
Someone had stolen our game cart so I hauled him out with a hand truck....only took 2 hours.
I shot him in the head, but was able to save a little cheek meat.
Oh happy cooler....
We do not get any big predators over here in the uk, but Love to hunt me a wolf and if i lived over there i think i would live for coyote hunting and probabyly do as much as i could with a shotgun just for the sake of it. Any wolf or Coyote Hunting pics? I love watching the Skinny O’Neil "supressed" videos on youtube you People are so lucky having Bigger predators to hunt i still like fox shooting in the off season here though gives me a flavour of what the bigger Predators would be like.
I have not lived in wolf country but have called some coyote and other smallish predators.
I think my son was about 15 here. Cold, cold morning. -30ish. I had him positioned to my right and all I could see were dogs milling about around the 500yd mark. I hear BANG! BANG! and watch three dogs (they're referred to as dogs in some locales) sprint away. I'm as mad a as a father can get and yell off to my right "Great shooting! How about letting them come to the call next time?"
He replies: "I got a dead dog 50 fuckin' yards in front of me!!!"
I never saw that dog approach due to terrain. I forgave the language.... Grin.
Another one he got a couple years prior.
He hit it too far back with the first shot (didn't bark it to a stop) but was able to finish it out with his second.
Sometimes they hold and won't commit. I think I called in seven here.
500yds through a Leupold 6X42 for scale.
One got brave. Big mistake.
The kids here that hunt coyotes hardly ever get a shot under 300 yds. The ones at my school seem to prefer 300WM over all other calibers, too.
@Deflave Sr. where are you? I can’t imagine having wide open prairies if you’re in South Fla.
