I went this afternoon, actually..been going every weekend since it opened last month.

Deer season opened up last Sat here. First week was muzzleloader, and this Sat was opening of gun season. I've shoot and 4 point and a nub buck and my dad got a 5 point. We dont got pics, but here are some from the last couple of seasons.
Here is my 8 pointer from last year right before he goes to get mounted.
Let me try to find some pics of my 7 point I shot the year before that. He got mounted too, but wasnt as big. I've only shot one doe in my whole life, but have shot plenty of nub bucks.:D Crazy buck fever. I also hunt everyday except Sunday. Soon as I get home from school, I go striaght to the woods. That's why I'm not on here before 6 o' clock everyday.

deer season was last month for me, iwent every day but didn't get one this year.

what's everyone hunting with around here? Iv'e been using a remy model 700 in 7mm mag myself.

I shoot a 742 30-06 Woodmaster. My dad shoots a 30-06 carbin. We love 30-06's. Sometimes when I get excited about how big of a whole the muzzleloader makes, i'll grab the slug gun. It a Mosseburg 12 gauge with a shotgun scope and it's bolt action, If you want a picture of it, I can get one. :)

11-13-2006, 08:32 PM
I drew back on a small doe the other day but there were too many limbs in the way to shoot. The deer are still rutting in Ohio so I didn't worry too much about her. She was small.

its about time, there's like 3 piles of guts on the highway right now.

11-14-2006, 03:35 AM
Past seasons for my dad and myself:

My dad's big "moose" of a deer, 9 pointer. He tried to mount it himself and the cape turned orange/yellow after a couple of years. He is having it re-caped.

My 8 pointer.

My little 8 pointer and my dad's 10 pointer.

Last year for us:

My small 8 pointer.

My dad's giant 13 pointer.

We are hoping for another good year this year!

I shoot a Winchester .30-30 normally, but that's my little brother's rifle. Sometimes I use my dad's 742 30-06 Woodmaster. I want either a .270 or a .30-06 for my personal gun. I had a shot at a 10-pointer the first time I ever went hunting by myself..and missed. It sucked. I just went and put some corn out today, I'll probably head to the stand in about an hour and a half.

Edit: Rut started Monday here (give or take a few days)..so I'm hoping to start seeing some action..

11-14-2006, 03:22 PM
Wow. Some nice deer here. Last year I got an 8point. The year before was 6. Then a 4 and then a spike. Wierd there even numbered. This year im hoping to shoot a 12pnt plus. i now there out there i just dont know were. yet.
I hunt with a 7remm mag. a 30-06. a 7x.57(japneses sniper rifle) a .32 and a 30-30. but then we have around like 10 shotguns and 5 .22's. small army ftw.

11-14-2006, 04:03 PM
We have 2 30-06's, 22-250, 223,.... and a couple more rifles I just cant remember. Most of the guns are my dad's, I know maybe 4 guns. We own a butt load of shotguns and only one pistol. It's a Ruger 22 target practice pistol. lol.And my dove hunting gun is my Bennili 12. Really nice gun! The rut came in 4 days ago. Hoping for a really good season!

I think that's all..lol.

Saw 3 does today near my corn pile. I waited until they were out of sight before I got down from the stand but apparently they were still there when I got down because they blew at me like crazy..

11-14-2006, 04:18 PM
I seen nothin today. Well... I has 3 coons right before dark. One sal and 2 lil coons. I want be able to hunt this Friday or Saturday. We're goin to busco beach again. Saturday is my main day. :(

11-14-2006, 05:15 PM
I'm headed hunting saturday afternoon and sunday morn. The peoples land i'll be hunting on said they've seen a big 14 pt around. I haven't taken a buck yet and hoping to see this monster. So far they've seen lots of deer and already taken a 9 pt and a couple of does. Needless to say i'm excited. My rifle is a Weatherby Vanguard .270 with a wood stock and a Leupold VX-1 3x9x40 scope. Awesome combination in my opinion. Plenty of knock down power for Texas whitetail with not that much recoil.

Other guns include:
Rem. 30-30
Rem. 30-06
Rem. 12 Ga. 870 wingmaster pump (dad's)
Rem. 12 Ga. 870 pump (mine, nothing fancy and works awesome)

here is mine from last season... It's from South Texas


11-15-2006, 12:24 PM
havent gone since '02 or '03... usually use my dad's 30-06

11-18-2006, 07:26 PM
I'm trying to convince my parents to get me a Browning A-Bolt .30-06 for Christmas. Sad thing is it will probably cost me as much for the scope as it will for the gun. :(

11-19-2006, 03:57 PM
What scope are you considering and why did you choose the Browning A-bolt?

11-19-2006, 04:06 PM
I have heard good things about Brownings, and my dad has had no problems with his A-5 Browning 12 gauge. I know I want a bolt action. As far as scopes go, I haven't really looked much..possibly a Leupold or something like that.

I'm not one for dear hunting, really don't care for the meat that much. But I guess cow hunting is not perceived very well :rolleyes:

11-19-2006, 06:42 PM
wow...just looking thru this makes me see that i really live in a city city..nothing like new york or chi town but def. not even close to the country

11-20-2006, 02:48 AM
I know, the opportonity to hunt has never even came for me, because I live in the burbs outside of boston.

11-20-2006, 07:10 AM

11-20-2006, 07:14 AM
