OK Deer Hunt 18-21 Nov 2017

Spent four days in Oklahoma with my buddies, wives, and our children. I didn't hunt I just spent time sitting in the blind with my daughter, which is what I love to do. I had planned on getting a tag if my daughter tagged out early, but it took her all four days to fill her tag so I decided to not to hunt. We had six hunters total and managed to take 17 deer and two coyotes in a four day hunt.

Youngest hunter was nine years old, he tagged a doe and his first buck on this trip. Also had another 15 year old hunter take his first buck as well on the last night he had to hunt. The remaining five hunters all took an antlered deer and two antlerless deer.

Best picture I have of my daughter with one of her deer, last tag punched and finally a daylight picture.


Target of opportunity while checking game cameras, "Go Pokes!"


Some of the success.




Special thanks to Cody and his dad Bobby for inviting us down for the last six years to hunt their property in Oklahoma. This has became my daughter's favorite hunt, and like she said it feels like coming home after several years of taking game in Oklahom. She took her first deer at nine at nine, and now has a total of 12 Oklahoma deer taken in the last six years.

Congrats to your daughter!

What kind of rifle is she using?

That's a good haul for deer and the yotes a nice bonus. Surprised there were no hogs in the lineup!
