2010 Hunting Results (PICS)

Let's see your results for this years hunts! I'll start.



Since this is a Gun forum I'll keep it gun related, I shot this deer with my Marlin XS7 in 308 with 150 Grain Winchester Power Points. Happy Hunting!

Are you a midget or is that one big deer?

I showed this deer the other day but here he is again.

I got him in eastern south dakota using a M1a .308 with a seirra gameking 165 grain softpoint propelled my 42 grains of IMR 4895 in a lake City case. P.S. Sorry for the Shi%^y photos but I was glad we had him on trail cam from earlier in the year too.

Nice buck, Lebyrn!

I started off with a super nice doe on opening morning - field dressed @ 128lbs.



5 days later, I filled my buck tag with a 10 pointer (Official State of Missouri count - 9 points, because one point didn't make it to an inch) I was by myself, so nobody around to take our picture.



I hoisted him over a limb with a rope and ATV, then lowered him onto the back of the ATV, (which was the hard part - trying to position him while running a friction brake around another tree,) but I never had to lift him. I drove the ATV into the truck/off the truck, then hoist him, skinned and quartered him off the bucket of my tractor's front end loader. If I had done the doe the same way, my back wouldn't have still been a wreck the day I got the buck!



I have to throw in one I can't take credit for, but I'm as proud of my old huntin' buddy's Utah buck as he is! The spread on this muley is 37".



Happy hunting!

Nice kills so far I can't post any pics (mine are all on film waiting to be developed). Openig day of muzzle loader I took a 151 pd (field dressed) Russian Boar with a 250 grn sabot over 100 grn of Triple Seven. Took my 7 yr old grandson out on opening day of rifle and we took a 141 pd 8 pointer (field dressed) with a 140 grn Nosler BT I loaded over 65 grn of IMR 4350. I was so happy for the boy. Still have over a month left to hunt .

I took him on my 90 acre farm in Northern KY (Union). He came hauling out of the woods at a full run when I shot him.

We have had a pretty good year.
The first is my son's first buck, The second is the buck I killed at Halloween. They were killed about 200 yards apart on our 60 acre tract of land.

I have also killed three does that went around a hundred pounds or so. No pictures of them.

I'm Taylor Mill but hunt down in Falmouth. I saw a couple of bucks but nothing like that monster of yours so I let them walk.

Congrats on that deer again.

EDIT: I keep going back and looking at that sheep…WOW!

Some great pics... love it!

Folks in South Africa and Alaska have got some hunting options, don't they? I suddenly feel like I'm in a deer and coyote rut. On the other hand, I'm going to take a wild guess and say that somebody actually had to walk up that mountain to take that goat, while I bitched about having to walk a couple of hundred yards before hauling a brutally heavy, 3 cup capacity thermos of coffee up a ladder

Then, my text message to my fellow hunters: "Bad situation over here... I fumbled my doughnut and lost it over the side. Out of coffee too!"

A scratchy whisper comes over the walkie talkie, "Nice 10 pointer right in front of me but my stupid gun didn't go off! It's weird, man. It's like the deer know when you forget to load your stupid gun."

I liked how the gun was "stupid." Fumbling a doughnut out of a deer stand, though - I bet that's a trait shared mostly by elite athletes and geniuses.

I remember when film came out; it was awesome! Before film, digital and TheFiringLine.com, we had to post images of our hunts on cave walls. Sometimes the images were off topic or scratched into the wrong area of the cave. The cave wall moderators would have to remove them with a big grinding stone.

"what's film?"

That's the stuff people like myself use cuz the modern times don't work. I'll get them on a disk and get my grandson to download them.

And yep, two different guns. 50 cal on the boar and 7 mag on the buck.

There, I think that fixes everything.

My son got a real nice whitetail when we were out in muley country. He's 16 and this is his 5th buck in a row--his first whitetail, the others all muleys. 260 Remington, shot him at about 250 yards.




I passed on a few bucks out in muley country (not too interested in the 2 to 4 mile pack out unless it's a big one!) and last weekend of rifle I took the ol' iron sight thuddy-thuddy out and got a tender little doe.

Well to answer your question the orange is to protect you from other hunters mistaking you for a deer or just making it more visible where hunters are. In some seasons such as archery deer you are not required to wear orange but other seasons such as rifle you are. We dont have as much room around here in the states like you do in Africa. They say the deer cant tell the difference anyway!
