    The best recurve that I have owned was in the late 60's. It was a Ben Pearson Mercury Hunter. It had 2 capsules of mercury implanted in the riser. I think that it was 800 grains of mercury. The smoothest bow that I have ever owned.

    Congrats on your 1st buck.

    Sorry, but that model Mustang was the worst-looking one. :(

    I'm reminded that it used to be commonplace to haul a deer home on the hood of your vehicle. I noticed a pic or two here. When I attended hunter ed, the game wardens were against it because 1) the heat from the engine isn't good when meat is supposed to be cooling down, and 2) some people are sensitive to the sight of a dead deer and we don't want to tick off the antis.

    Who says we don't? I would go out of my way to tick them off.

    It isn't the anti's we need to worry about. The vast majority of people don't hunt and don't have strong feelings either way. Displaying a dead animal in an unflattering way may well turn someone who is neutral on the topic into an anti. There are better ways to get your game home.

    The pickup bed, the trunk, pretty much the back of any vehicle pictured here... the heat off the engine wouldn't be a factor. A lawnmower trailer... tie the load down, maybe cover with a tarp depending on distance, population, demographics, weather and other conditions.

    Yeah, dealing with antis and dealing with neutrals is two different matters.

    This is my granddad in 1964. Biggest 5 point bull I've ever seen. He killed it on Doctor's Peak, north of Gunnison CO

    And, just to set everybody straight, the pic of the two deer above on the 1935 Ford; my dad would never transport deer like that. I presume they took the deer out of granddad's pickup and put them on the fenders for the photo.

    It's so small that I can't see it. Maybe try posting it as a full-size photo?

    Some pics from a hunting trip to the Cohutta Wilderness in North Central GA from 1981. This is the largest hunting area in GA. The terrain is steep, rugged and with elevations over 4000' which is pretty high for GA. At the time there was a good population of large whitetails, hogs, and enough bear to hunt. Today the deer numbers are down, but there are still some big ones back in those mountains. But this is one of the better places in GA for bear. This area borders to TN and NC on the north, you have to be careful not to cross state lines depending on where you hunt.

    Base camp in the popup. There is a 2nd Jeep with a utility trailer in the back.

    There is always that one guy who goofs off while everyone else is setting up camp. This is a friend, his green Jeep in the previous photo. The buck buggy he is sitting on was used by several others who camped near us.

    Me in the fore ground trying unsuccessfully to grow a beard at 23. My 17 year old brother behind me. I still own and use the Coleman lantern

    It was a LOOONG walk to the area we were hunting. My brother and one other in our group couldn't hunt the entire week and after they left Ricky and I decided to just rough it closer to where we hunted. We carried a loaf of bread, a jar of peanut butter, our sleeping bags and the ponchos. Stayed here 2 nights to cut down on walking.

    More pics, next post

    I didn't kill anything, but some game taken from our camp. All of these folks borrowed the buck buggy.

    I did manage to kill a decent bear there a few years later. It weighed 260 lbs. Shot at 4 PM and we didn't get it back to camp until midnight. This was taken the next morning after I got home

    Even with the small pic, the rack still looks pretty big. (Edited: yeah, I looked at the link and that's big.)

    No arguement from me... it was more a comment on how things have changed.

    I want to see what these guys were shooting. I have a thing for grandpa's rifles. I started a collection many years ago and have some good ones from New England where I lived at the time. I don't hunt new guns.

    Well, in my granddad's case above, he used a Winchester Model 70 in .270 Win., that he bought in the 1940s.
