Thanks, Jon.

I used to daydream about elk when I was a kid hunting whitetails in PA. Moved out here a few years ago, and had to give it a try. I got skunked the first two years, then was at right place at the right time last fall. All of that long-range practice with the .300 WSM; then only needed a 55-yard shot for this guy. But I'm not complaining. He's tasty! :D

April 28, 2006, 08:38 PM
yeah, rlong, I envy you too. Nice bull - I dream of elk hunting as well. May be able to swing an archery hunt this fall.

9-point Michigan Whitetail

I took this buck before I went to work last Dec. The brow tines are as tall as the rest of the rack, which I thought was neat. The wife insisted that I have it mounted and put on the wall.

Nice Hawgs Big Jon!

Hey Folks,

Here's the turkey I shot Sat. morning at 10:30 he gobbled once about 400 yards away or more. I called aggressively with long pauses between calls. He came in silently and I shot him in the head and neck at 35 yards. (I checked after the shot with a laser rangefinder!).

Shot with Browning Gold Hunter 12 gauge 3 1/2" magnum #4 Heavy Shot standard full choke. DOA did nothing but flop at the shot!

He weighed 18 pounds on a certified set of scales. (Town & Country feed store) Had a 9&3/4" beard & 1" spurs.

Chuck -- very nice bird!

I've really been blessed over the last few years... I've been hunting in Dooley county Georgia... I killed this 8pt buck @304 yards, and this bohemith 174-1/2 lb (oth) doe at 150 yards in 2004; then killed this 228 lb (oth) nine pointer in 2005 with a neck shot at 250 yards. I wonder what this season will bring?
PS: All were killed with a Winchester Model 70 in a 270WSM with 130grain nolser balistic tip

May 2, 2006, 07:40 AM
that's the largest doe i've ever seen. nice shootin'.

May 2, 2006, 05:00 PM
Thanks for the compliment. I really treasure having the oportunity to take a doe that big. I've never even seen one that big . When I first saw her, I thought she was a buck!!! I really looked carefully before I took the shot.

This buck was taken after a long stalk in rough country. I'll always treasure this memory, even if it had been big doe.

wha did you use? great looking deer..

May 9, 2006, 03:18 PM
First time to load a pic on the web and try to do this.

Last fall's Texas 9 Pointer from just south of Brady.


shot with this 270 WSM. No fancy shot, 40 yards.

May 11, 2006, 08:22 AM
I haven't been able to go out again since 2003, but that was a good year. I took this West Texas Mulie south west of Sanderson from 167yards with a single round of .308 Hornady 168gr TAP out of my Chinese Dragunov.


Here's the first deer taken with that rifle back in 1999. It's my longest shot to date with the gun in the field --- 250 yds --- which is about the edge for the 4x scope's ability to verify points before dropping the hammer. Ammo used for this one was Hornady's 165gr SP "Custom" in the gray box, and the deer literally didn't take a single step. He just fell over dead.:D


That same rifle also took a 120lbs. male cougar in 2000, but I can't find the photos for the life of me (got the pelt on the wall though). Both of the last two were taken on the Sombrero Peak ranch on the border of Big Bend National Park. If I find other pictures, I'll post 'em


May 11, 2006, 09:09 AM
I found one more. Forgive the quality as it had to be scanned, cropped, then uploaded. This one was also taken on Sombrero Peak Ranch, however in 2001 I was using a reproduction 1903A4 sniper rifle built from a Smith Corona A3 I got for a song. Range was all of 25 yards and the deer didn't show himself until I was right on him. I had spent the entire morning working a ridge line slowly and glassing everything without seeing a single deer. So, more out of frustration than anything else I decided to drop lower and move quickly through the brush hoping to force any hidden ones to move. 5 minutes into that tactic, I just about stepped on this one and he made 25 yards before I could get a round off.

Huntin with a Druganov - gotta love it. Chuck, where's that bird from, what state? Nice pics everyone...

May 21, 2006, 01:22 AM
I got this big basstad spearfishing last week, about 8-10kg

shot a similar one last week but it got away, It is giant cuttlefish season and im stocking up on the calamari :) they have big eyes like a cow

saw some tentacles moving in a cave and dive down and got a good shot on him, didn't want to rush draging him in cos didn't want to lose this one so i had to survive a few ink bombs,

made a mess of the kitchen too, LOL took me ages to cut it up but its good you dont really need to gut them.

May 23, 2006, 10:11 PM
Jonutarr, That is one ugly sucker:) ! But I love Calamari no matter what they look like.;)

ill second that

May 24, 2006, 11:19 AM
Here's mine!!


Of course it was taken 74 years ago and that's my .22 single shot I got for my 6th birthday - photographer was my proud dad. Coyotes were considered dangerous for calves on our ranches so there was a $2.00 bounty on them. This resulted in overpopulation of rabbits so it was my obligation to help correct that.

:D :D :D

what a great photo sir, that has to be a family hierloom,thank you sharing it,

May 25, 2006, 04:41 AM
What an awesome photo and a great way to grow up. Keepin the rabbit population to a minimum and starring as Alfalfa in Lil Rascals all at the same time.

Just kiddin, the grin tells the rest of the story. Proud dad and proud hunter.

You better have that one framed for the grandkids to see.

May 25, 2006, 12:08 PM
When I first glanced at jonutarr's photo (with out reading the text first) I had to do a double-take. I thought he was holding up a gut pile from some type of animal :eek: :D

OJ -- that's a fantastic photo.

May 25, 2006, 07:01 PM
the funny thing is though it may look like some guts, these animals are the most pleasant and easy things to gut and it makes good burley to ;)

May 25, 2006, 10:59 PM
OJ, thats a great pic. You should call up hallmark and have a card with that pic on it!

May 26, 2006, 05:58 PM

May 26, 2006, 07:44 PM
Yeah, OJ's pic rocks. :)

jonutar, that is one jacked-up ugly grouper ya got there!

May 31, 2006, 01:23 PM
Haha, not comparable to any of the beasts previously posted, but I just found and scanned a pic of my first hunt with an old Remmington 1100. That shotgun weighed more than I did.
