    The turkeys didn't show, but I spent a day in the woods with my flintlock smoothbore trying to arrange the meeting!

    I have had a productive start to my 2018 season. Typically only take one or two deer per year, but trying to fill the freezer this time around.
    Started with two does on the first trip out:



    Took a buck Saturday morning. Had a quick offhand shot at him at approximately 35 yards while walking down an overgrown logging road.



    Grilled the tenderloins last night.
    Enjoying every minute of it!


    Good luck everyone!

    I like the stock on the rifle Jeff!

    My buddy built one a few years back from scratch with parts from a local ML shop and got a tiger maple blank and carved it out and fitted the barrel. His stock has the black in it like yours and i think they look awesome!

    Your avatars all grown up now drunkenpoacher. Very nice pics btw.

    I like the hunting pics of what the hunter sees when he's sitting in his stand looking out. A dead deer on the ground, big or small, isn't much to look at.

    Either way, I'll try to post up some of both (hopefully both) this weekend cause that's when rifle opener in MN is. Funny I've been hearing 'one shot' shots in early morning and evening hours in all directions for the past week. Sure is a lot of guys up here doing 1 shot sight ins.. ;)

    Thanks and good luck.
    My little red hunting partner pointed a hen pheasant less than ten feet in front of me today. Would have been a cool pic if I had been quick enough on the draw.

    I use natural cover i.e. fallen logs and driftwood logs as cover, even in settings that are wide open.

    Keep the pics and stories coming.
    That will be as close to hunting as i can get for a while. We are way behind with harvest.
    Rain just ended a 44 hour day for me.
    Enjoy seeing the pics very much.

    I had a twofer today....this morning I was able to drop the hammer on a coyote that strolled too close to the popup blind. I'm not sure where he went, but he was probably in the next county before a single drop of blood hit the ground. No pic of him, just the arrow with blood and fur.
    After I searched for him for a bit two doe and a 1st year buck (had buttons but also two pairs of very faint fawn spots) came in within range. This girl in the pic definitely knew something was up. She walked in and looked and listened and come in a little more before walking off about 20 feet. She finally decided to come back in and when I drew back my bow the other doe spooked. When the other one ran off, this one pulled her head up and was assessing her surroundings when I let one fly.
    Hit her dead center of her chest with a VIP broadhead. It worked well enough, but it did malfunction. They're spring loaded blades and one of the blades failed to open. It still makes a decent cut if they don't open, but I'm disappointed I didn't get to see it at it's full potential. 20181101_105848.jpg

    Edit: also forgot to mention that after I gutted her and drug her maybe 30 yards, the crowd landed in the trees above the pile. Amazing how quickly these animals find food.

    Edit#2: also forgot about this little fat turd. Watched him eat up my corn for about 10 minutes. He would sit on his fat butt facing me like this just stuffing his mouth full. 20181101_075418.jpg

    Recently a nasty boar had been chasing deer from a game plot. i plotted to get the critter: Sat in the blind and waited. As i was preparing to leave the hog came in.

    Attitude: Broadside
    Distance: About 75 yards
    Rifle: .50 caliber TC Encore
    Scope: 4X Zeiss
    Bullet: 250 Grain SST in crush rib sabot
    Powder: 120 grains of Black MZ
    Primer: Winchester 209

    Hog ran about 75 yards and collapsed. That is the exit wound.

    Photo was taken several hours after the kill.
