Gorgeous birds.

Shot this buck at 0730 this morning. Not much of a rack, he broke most of one side off I assume from the 100yd tumble. I shot him about 100yds above a road, he made it to the road but didn't cross it with one lung and about half a heart left. Just had to drive my truck right up to him.

Any venison in the freezer is venison in the freezer. Nice harvest H60Gunner. 100yd shot is harder than some might think, I keep mine around 50-60 if possible for rifle, and around 20-30 max with the bow.

I really want to weigh this one because, to me, his body is unusually large. I can usually wrestle deer into the back of my truck but this one I had to drag him up the bank, back my truck up to the bank and roll him in.

Meat on the hoof is all that matters. I have never passed on a high percentage shot to fill the freezer, as I never know what tomorrow brings. I have yet to put the bow in the woods , been too busy with work and the nights around here have been too warm for me to hang anything yet.

First non-spike that comes my way during bow season may be in serious trouble.

Youth waterfowl hunt this weekend.

Board of Director's meeting next Saturday. Maybe next Sunday I will get the bow in the woods.

I'll be in the Adirondacks the following weekend for the traditional family deer camp started by my grandfather and his friends in the 30's, back when we had no deer in the southern tier of NY and they had lots in the Adirondacks. After that the bucks should be moving pretty good.

Hannah and I stole a hunt this afternoon. She pointed these two and bumped two others. It was waist high goldenrod under apple trees in a creek bottom. I love this dog.

That is my rule for elk. First legal one I see is going down whether a spike or six point. Last two years they were spikes... I get a little more choosy for whitetail only because we can shoot either sex till Dec 1. No monster by the end of Thanksgiving weekend, a doe is dinner for the next bit.

Shady's handiwork... if he suggests that he might put a shovel to work, he's likely as not going to kill one or five with a damn shovel.

OIF-1 at BIAP, believe it our not. Before and After shots (sorry Shady1, I know you're gonna kill me for that
