I'm going to polish up my 2lb sledge and head down to Walken1's neck of the woods with some feed corn in hand. The deer there have no fear of humans.

Oh Baaaambi.................

Avoid Rossi's. They're an attractive, very affordable, versatile gun for beginners, but fuck...the shotguns are uncomfortable to shoot.
I've shot plent of heavy caliber rifles and heavy loads on shotguns and that little Rossi (in 20ga) is pretty rough...especially on a new/young shooter.

The Mrs has a Harrington and Richardson single shot .410. It shoots real nice for a starter gun, and she's learned a lot about gun safety and shooting with it. Now, she has her sights on a "Circuit Judge".

This is a good reminder to not leave your weapons in your vehicle unattended. Theiving assholes know it's hunting season too. And, of course, if you have a CHL...keep your weapon on you.

I wish these "pillars of society" would have been "stopped"! Good news; no mention of any charges!

Shot a small doe this morning on Vandenberg. First mule deer for me. The daughter said it was to far away for her to shoot. I knew it was a poke, 159 meters verified by gps with the 11-87 and 3" Remington copper solid slugs. I was holding on the top of her back, blew the heart in two.

As we left base there was a sow and 8+ 40lb piglets in a field on Rt 1. Almost went to the ranch house and asked for permission to shoot one.

Lots of quail and rabbits up there this year. They must have had some rain at the right times.

Huh, I'm surprised to read that. I just recently bought a Rossi Circuit Judge, .410/.45LC as a play gun and I love shooting it. Not a "great" gun but a lot of fun, and I was planning on trying it out for small game and birds this season.

2000 acre island. 45 dear stands. 18 hunters. Mixture of plowed fields, old growth woods, huge pecan orchard. Model 700 sighted in. Piles of corn in my warehouse and in the woods. License and tags in hand. Ready to go. But...

...still too fucking hot here in the deep south. Will be ready to go in late October.

Beautiful crisp cool day here, leaves have started to change, some have fallen. Perfect day to wander thru my woods, kicking the leaves, letting the dog run around, and trying to stir up a few grouse while checking for early deer sign.

Took the big old Ford tractor out last weekend with the brush hog and gave all the lanes a final mowing for the fall. After finishing chores, Saturdays will be spent walking the land with the dog and carrying the shotgun. Comes November, the deer stands will be checked and time spent watching the usual suspects.

Congrats. You can't do any of that, save for perhaps an occasional bunny, in your native neck of the woods. Glad to see someone is making the most of their time in the stumps.

I only bowhunt for deer so other than requesting days off, I've only done my normal 3D shooting. We're fortunate to have exotics on the lease so a longer range rifle shot might not be out of the question on a big Axis or Black buck antelope. We also have a few hogs running around tearing up things.
