    I usually get out for at least the opener of muzzle loader season, but since almost all of deer season is right in the middle of duck season, I miss most of it.

    I do abslolutely love deer season though. All the fair-weather waterfowlers head for the deer woods and I get the wetlands to myself. :D

    I love bowhunting with my longbow first and foremost for Whitetails. I have taken a few deer with the stickbow over the past couple of years. This past season I went out with the SRH 44 mag looking for a whitetail. Wasn't sucessful with the handgun but I had alot of fun.

    Turkey hunting is fun. Squirrel and rabbit and other small game are fun as well, but I think of the next deer season from the end of the last one. I love to deer hunt, and that's a big understatement. As a matter of fact, I am in the midst of purchasing my next deer rifle. That's a nice buck by the way shooter10mm. They don't make many like that in Arkansas.

    P.S. Hunt the two-legged kind too.

    Ok, I'm just now figuring out to attach a file. I got this guy last year with my smoke pole. Best one I've got yet.

    I've been twice but I think I'm going to get more serious about it. We now cook outdoors pretty much every other day and have a large freezer that needs filled. :p

    My wife's dad is a maximum per season, every season kind of guy - he's taken at least 2 every season since 1974. He shoots shotgun, muzzleloader and bow. He also has an orchard so that opens up crop-damaging doors for him that he has utilized from time to time. I'd call him pretty serious.

    I alternate hunting betweek Wisconsin and Illinois. I prefer hunting with a rifle, but I love the Illinois bucks. Just got this one back from the taxidermist Sunday. Shot him last November on a friend's farm. Biggest one I have shot so far.

    I used ta was a whitetail hunter! I grew up hunting them in the western forests of the People's Demoratik Kommunewealth of Massachewsh*ts.

    Used to get some real beefy ones. Now I live on the Left Coast and hunt blacktails. Got some nice ones of those as well. The next challenge is going to revolve around getting a few spectacular muleys.

    BTW Those are some mighty fine deer. :cool:

    Whitetail Hunters???? Man my life goes from one deer season to another. I have hunted them since I was 8 years old and have continued hunting whitetails during all seasons. I hunt with Bow, Muzzleloader, handgun, and rifle hell I would hunt them with spears if they had a spear season.:what:

    :) I got heavy into the "bonearrer" bit when I was 13, 14 years old. I used cedar for the bowstave, turkey feathers for fletching, and filed-down barrel hoop for the points. The bowstrings, and glue and thread for fletching, were storebought. Shafts were from a local plant--and I still don't know the name.

    Various efforts didn't pan out, until about my fourth or fifth effort. I wound up with about a 45-pound pull bow. I carved the stave from cedar heartwood, and wrapped it with thin, wet rawhide stretched as tight as I could get it.

    I managed to kill one little spike buck, a fox, several rattlesnakes and two cottontails. :) Almost got a jackrabbit on the run, but was off a bit to one side...

    My longest shot with a "flight arrow", with only a 6d nail for a point, and minimum-size feathers, was 389 long steps. (Some things you just never forget.)

    Lots of Ernest Thompson Seton stuff in my early teen years...

    I love hunting mulies but unfortunately I've only shot one spike in Colorado. I've had better luck with these midwest whitetails. Maybe it's just me but it does seem like mulies tast better.

    I wish I could have weighed him. After field dressing (the gut pile looked like it came from a cow) my hunting buddy and I had a real hard time lifting him across the four wheeler to get him out of the woods. The taxidermist said he used the biggest form that he could find.

    I'm not surprised to hear that, it almost looks like an elk head with whitetail antlers. Congrats on a great buck.
