I'm going hunting in a few months and I need some stimulation. Last year I screwed around and didn't take all the necessary precaution for anti-deer detection. I was hunting (stalking) in the ozarks and lost several deer ranging from 100 yards to 30 feet. They all saw/smelled me first. Anyway, I'm getting squared away this season and have been geekin' about it for weeks. Show me your last season kills and what camo, scent blocker, rifle, terrain, etc you used. I'm looking for any ideas. Thanks for any input!!

Not the best from around here but the FIRST one always matters doesnt it?

I wish I could say it was all my boy but I had to help him.




This was obviously the 30-30, usually use a Kimber 45 in 45super for the close clover field (40 yards and under) and a remington 700 7mm for anything further. Also use a .223 bushy as the mood hits me. Boy uses a 357 mag single shot or 410 bolt action mossberg, got to get to practicing.

Do have a new bean field out to 600 yards which, of course, will be the 7 mag.
Cammy is my czech top and a camo stand, boy doesnt need camo b/c he is out of sight until something comes along.

Careful what you ask for...you just might get it!!!

GRAPHIC PHOTO WARNING....

After a long morning in the stand with nothing to show for it, I was walking out of the woods on a game trail towards a corn field. I look up at the trail head and all I can see are two big ears standing at the entrance to the trail. I look through the scope and all I can see are the ears, eyes and nose. I figure the best shot is a head shot (clean kill or clean miss..not much of a chance of wounding ths one) so I place the crosshairs on the nose and slowly squeeze the trigger...BOOM... From 75 yards away all I can see from where the deer once stood was PINK MIST CLOUD drifting in the morning sun... :dance:

Small Doe..commonly called a SUSHI deer cause the meat so pink and tender it's good enough to eat raw!!!!

.270 Browning A-Bolt using Ballistic Silver tips. Some of the jacket and bullet base was lodged in the spine at the base of the brain...

And for the Horn hunter crowd, I EAT my deer , not look at the horns on my wall so big musky smelling , gammey tasting BUCKS do not appeal to me...The younger the better...something in the 75-110lbs range eats the best. I feed the Old Horny Head meat to my Falcon/Hnting Hawks! :wink:

the smaller the sweeter! your right about that ak kid. 75 yards with a 270.. kinda like a chainsaw at 2 feet

buck meat goes to dog food for the year here. When the freezer is full of doe, the rest goes to a few regulars who are happy for the extra meat.

Like you, I am also looking forward to the start of deer season. I hunt in middle Georgia. All my land is wooded. Almost all my deer are taken while stalking. I do not do anything special other than walk quietly, have a keen eye, and quick reflexes. :wink:

These are pics from hunts spanning the last few seasons. Me and the war poodle love hunting with the AK's. It is all we use. :grin:


























:twisted:

Once or twice a season I take out WWII guns and AKs. Love the Garand but it is a chuck. Got an ak 45 winmag in process now for stalking this season.
Good pics. This is getting me excited about this season too.

Here's one from '05 I think. .300 Remington Ultra Mag at about 20 yards. Possible overkill :wink:
It's only a 3 point. The extent of my horn hunting would be, if two bucks are standing side by side, I would probably shoot the bigger one. Otherwise, I don't care.

if two bucks are standing side by side, you could get both with the .300 Remington Ultra Mag.

You can use Crossbows in just about all bow season locations, if you can prove you can't physically manipulate bow for some medical reason.

My father had many muscles cut in his hand from a workshop accident that required surgery and a few years of physical therapy. Needless to say he easily a crossbow hunting license.

Also I'm sure some people hunt on their own private property.
