Already getting excited about next deer season. Though it would be cool to see what others have harvested last year and how. Savage 11 in .308 at 30 yards = Very dead deer. Did not have a clear shot so aimed for the spine since I was close and succeed.

Someone's been giving that deer a multivitamin.

I'd post some pictures, but they would all be nothing but cut bean and corn fields.

I tried to post a completely blank message as a representation of my deer hunt last year, but apparently each message needs at least three characters.

Wellllllll...... this is actually from December, 2011. But, I didn't have a chance to get out in 2012, so it'll have to do.
It's one of three Sitka Blacktail bucks and two does I got that year.
Each were taken with a Remington 700 MTN in 270win, from a boat bobbing in the salt water.
This one was at about 80-90 yards, which is pretty typical.

And then, there was this fuzzy little guy. He'll get bigger. ;)

I hunted elk last year. All I got out of it was experience and a new fuel pump. :D

Here's my wife from last year. It's a little one but her first ever deer. Actually it was only the 2nd time she's ever been hunting. We sat in the stand less than 30 min before this one and an even smaller one walked out. That's what threw me. I saw the smaller one and said, "Shoot the bigger one. It's the momma." WRONG! Apparantly it was big brother. Oh well, it was some kind of tender. :)
157 steps, DRT.
She handloaded the bullet that killed it too. Good stuff.

Girth measurement put it around 325 live weight....taken in Iowa.

That buck is a bruiser, for sure. That's about 3 times* the average weight of deer around here (*bucks and does combined).

I came up empty this last season but its great to see you all had a good season.
Where I hunt for the next 5 years you have to have a buck with 3 points on one side for the deer to be legal. I think this will help with the deer here in Michigan . Good luck in the next season

It sure has helped here in Arkansas.
We can kill does in most of the state, but bucks have to be 3 points on one side. We have seen much better bucks since the rule went into place. It's a good rule.

That's about 3x the size of a whitetail buck around here (Coues). It'd take a really good muley buck to approach that weight, and I'm not sure even they would. That's one big deer.

May 8, 2013, 01:35 PM
^ Yeah same here. A 200 pounder is a big buck here.

You won't see a 200# Coues buck. They are tiny. A big one might be 125#.

Didn't get after the deer but I did manage this guy. Used my grandpa's old 1903 that he carried in WW2 and gave to me when I got old enough to hunt.

Is that elk a Roosevelt? It looks more like a Rocky Mtn. type. Nice job with the '03.
(I thought they were just used as sniper guns in WWII.)

It's a 6x6 Rock Mountain elk. The 1903 was the standard rifle issued at the start of the campaign in the Pacific and was gradually replaced by the M1 Garand as they became available. My grandpa was a Seabee so they were pretty low on the totem pole to get the M1s.

Hunting with all my kids for the first time ever (all 3 got time off work or played hooky from college). My daughter kicked this one up and it came my direction. Would much rather her have shot it, but thankful for some success. She carries a M70 stainless featherweight is 6.5 Swede, me a Kimber Montana in .308, both wear nice made in Oregon Leupolds!

Nothing on the ground, but I did get a few pics of this guy as he meandered through within spitting distance of my stand (sorry, it was taken a bad phone camera).

This one from early Jan 2012. A 20 yard running shot. The gun is a .62 (.600" patched ball) smoothbore flintlock musket/fowler. A comparatively large doe for these parts.

A black bear is moosey looking? You must have some odd looking moose in your area. ;)

My bad. I first pictured it as the rear of a moose with it's head behind the brush.

I'll do better in a couple of weeks after I get this cataract removed. ;)

WayBeau

Yeah, definitely not a moose. . .especially in my part of the world. Not really sure what I'd do if a moose walked by my stand. Probably pack it up and go home because I'd swear I was delirious.

This was one of a few medium sized black bears that wandered through in about a 45 minute stretch.
