Black powder started sat in NC.

Ever year I post and keep a tally of kills and general events Thur the season.

So first off , scratch 2 bucks 1 2 pointer 163 lbs

scratch one 4 pointer 174 lbs

So me = 2

Tim my Hunting partner bagged a 155 lb 3 pointer.

I got mine in the AM [2 pointer] and the four pointer 30 yards away from the same spot in the evening

10 Min's later and 400 yards down the wood line Tim bagged his in the pm.


I only have a pic of my 4 pointer and Tim with his 3 pointer as it was dark by the time we dragged mine out and got them ready to dress

Last year Tim killed 19

Me Goose egg as my crappy Bushnell Cross hairs went crooked and the zoom would not work past 4 power, to say the least it was a Bad year


I want to say that we hunt for MEAT and of course making the Shot.

to us its all bout sausage and Jerky so we will shoot near about anything

excluding yearling's.
Where we hunt at is infested with deer , in 3 years we have harvested nearly

34 deer between us:D:

In fact there is no limit on does in NC this year, thats how bad it is because

most folks ONLY hunt racks, and thats caused IMO a population surge

and its not good because the young bucks are breeding and they should not

IMO, theres too many young ones and not enough dominant ones in our parts

Last year we witnessed a 3 pointer breeding a doe:eek:

any ways Mine were taking at approx 200 yards frailed em both where they stood and they dropped like bricks

Timmy hit his good but the darn thing ran in the woods 60 yards and we got ate up by red bugs finding him

any way heres the pics, Every one Have a safe and fun season

Must me nice, the deers have dwindled here in Northeast Pa. I talked to a few people and they think if they would close doe season for a year or two, we would get the deer population back up.
This will be my first year out, and I will be lucky to see anything im told.

Well here they started allowing either sex hunts in the 90's due to the population explosion. Our herds is estimated to be 1.1 million and is

supposed to have leveled off and in some ares declined due to the change in laws.

But still there are too many does and young bucks and too many folks here

will only shoot a big rack , too many are ashamed for some reason to kill
anything else it seems.

It sounds like your state allowed does to be over hunted but i do not know.

I have heard PA is loaded with deer and big ones but that must be in the west?

Anyway you can always hunt in NC:D:

Its still bow season here in the piedmont.Its kinda silly IMO how they lay out different seasons for the state. Here in my home county of Forsyth our season ends Dec 20th.If you take a 4 mile drive south into Davidson county there season ends Jan 1.WTF??.There can't be that much difference in deer populations between here and there.

:thumb:OK here the update

this is so cool:)

Tims son has been , lets say heading the wrong way, anyway hes 14 and a good kid just brimming with hormones and youngness .

We been taking him with us , matter of fact he missed the Doe Timmy killed
the other day and has missed a few last year. [aint we all]

Well as i mentioned they went today and Steven Got his first buck:thumb:

It was a 3 pointer and he missed the first shot and the thing ran twords him

and he nailed him with the 7mag . Hes learning and he adapted under pressure today and i am so proud of him, i can only imagine how great it was for them both

anyways I told Tim to email me the pics and i will post them here, but right now I don't feel like texting them to my email, I hate texting guess its the creaky fingers but i get them up soon

way to go Steve O:thumb:
