The wifes first deer... from about 6 years or so back.... got it with a 308 at about 65 yards... just walked right out and she knelt down and got the shot. I honestly did not think she could shoot that good.





These were in my back yard a few months back.... just outside of the fence area

Got this chunker yesterday, live weight was probably well over 200 lbs, he was an old deer. Doubt he'll taste that great, but if nothing else, jerky and stew meat will be nice. Thankfully the pack out was pretty uneventful even with the snow and wind.

I shot this Buck over the Thanksgiving holiday at my friends ranch near Uvalde Texas. It was a management hunt and this was an older buck. Estimated around 5 1/2 years old or so. We got in place around 5 pm. This old fella was chasing a doe and came out around 75 yards in front of my stand. Once I got my rifle up to shoot the doe ran around to the back side of the stand and the buck followed.

I had to switch everything up all the while trying to be quite and not make a sound. It amazes me at how these whitetales will pop up their heads at the slightest sound that you think they can't hear. Anyway after reorienting myself I lined up his neck in the scope and fired. He dropped right there on the spot. Caliber was .270 WSM.

I had been hunting the last 3 straight days, and hadn't seen a thing. It was near full moon, so that Sunday morning, I decided to head into the woods a little later. I started in at about 08:30, and almost immediately spooked a couple of does, who ran off snorting and making all kinds of noise. At that point, I thought it was all over because surely every deer in the county would know I'm there.

As I get within sight of my deerstand (some 50 yards off), this buck just explodes out of the thicket I had just walked past. I couldn't have been more than 15 feet from him as I walked past. He tries to get away, hits a cedar sapling in the middle of the old logging road, and does a complete end-over-end flip. This slows him down long enough for me to regain my composure and bring my rifle up. He trots over to the edge of a thicket about 25 yards away, then stops. I didn't hesitate. When my 150gr. Federal soft nose .30-06 round hit him, it looked like a grenade went off in his chest. He ran about 20 feet and piled up.

In the picture, everyone comments that I'm not smiling. There is a reason for this. When I finished field dressing him, I called my brother to borrow his 4-wheeler. It was out of commission, so I called my uncle. His was undergoing repairs. I finally put on my drag harness and pulled that heavy rascal approximately a mile, the last 300 yards of which was through waist-high cudzu. I was exausted when my Dad snapped the picture.
I like that Ruger Man'Licker.

Went to sight it in before the hunt, knowing it just had to be off. First shot at 25yds cut dead center of the bullseye. I switched to my 200yd target and was only 1/2 inch low-left of center, still in the black of the bullseye. Figured that'd be good enough. Love that rifle.

Federal. Just the cheap red and black box Federal. 150 grain. I like the lighter bullet because it shoots a little flatter.

This guy wasn't too bright. Who'd have guessed by the picture eh?


To make a long story short, I followed him for some time until I felt comfortable shooting, then with 1 shot, he ran forward, then faster, then FASTER, then KAREENED DOWN THE EMBANKMENT in a ball, dying on the trail not 15 feet in front of me. Had character, I'll give him that.

Default Blessed Saturday Morning

We had a light dusting of snow Saturday morning in North Mississippi and it made for some great hunting. The picturs is not the best, but he was an 8pt, 6" bases, 16" spreads and 20" main beams. I ended up with 50 pounds of ground sausage, 35 pounds of ground, backstraps, tenders and about 12-15 pounds of ham. He was a big boy!! Needless to say, the DW and I are happy campers!
