Next weekend is the Youth hunt for my son. Even though I can't hunt I can't wait to be out in the woods.

Bow season opened here Oct. 1st.  I don't bow hunt, so I have to wait until Nov. 21.  Squirrel and rabbit seasons open today in my part of the state.  Too bad I'm stuck at work.

Pretty succesful deer season so far. Our camp total got 3 doe and 2 nice bucks. A monster 13 pointer. 230 pounds!! My brother got it. That puppy was prolly the biggest deer i have ever seen. And then a decent 11 pointer 190 pounds.

I myself got one of the does. I passed up a young 4 pointer.

I will be going out on Friday and Saturday and then Sunday we will be taking down camp. I hope I can use my buck tag this year.

So far I don't have any meat in the freezer.  I've passed up on 6 so far because they were too small.  If turkey season was open, I could've filled all my turkey tags by now.  I think turkeys can tell the difference between a shotgun and a 30-06.

Do I dare ask the temperature??

I think I'm going on a pest control hunt, but I'm not sure. All I know iss I'm free to harvest as many little critters as I can. My cousin wants to make some roasts and a blanket, so they will go to good use.

First I had never gone rabbit hunting, so I was pretty stoked!!

We started walking along in the bitter cold wind coming from Canada through Idaho, but it died and we started to really get into the bunnies. we had five people, 2 shotguns and three .22s. I had the "worst" of the guns with an open sight .22. Many a times I came within inches of sniping the jack rabbits from a ridge looking down into the valley. It was about a 50 foot ridge. But almost only counts in hand grenades and horseshoes. We walked about two miles one way and than turned around. We missed all of the rabbits, and there was plenty of them. Finally the last bunny to have been jumped was hit by my bullet. I celebrated and put it into the bag to be mounted as a Jackalope!! One fo the best parts was the sniping accuracy I was dishing out. Many shots well over 100 yards were deadly accurate, or at least on a big animal. From about 100, I missed a rabbit by a few inches, that was hiding in the sage brush. The next one was some ridiculous shot of three hundred yards or more. I was aiming at a raven and hit the pole it was perched on!! The last few shots were random shooting. I picked off some poles that were about the same distance as the raven. It was a great day!!

Thanks, and yes it is. I need to do a major pile stock to get my .22 ammo well built up so I can spend some more time out there shooting at them. Nothing like unloading a clip on them and only to see them scamper away in the distance.

Safety worst?? I'm sure thats a typo of safety first?? Yes the five of us were very concious of where we were shooting.

lloll  YES safety FIRST!!!

I'm thinking more about the Packer game right now than typing... lol

I hunt with a pump-action 20 or 12 gauge so it is hard to go through as many shells but i have been known to have a high lead to air ratio at times haha

ha ha ha ha ha ha

I love being a rifle person!! I would have unloaded more bullets if I had a bigger clip.

I have a few hunts coming up this year. A hog and exotic sheep hunt, if I draw out, bull elk, and I'm debating about deer.

Packer fan huh??

The only thing I have ever hunted was North Koreans! In 1986-88, we used to hunt them when we delivered the payroll to the guys on the border!

How'd yours go Rebel??

Mine didn't go too well.  I had every piece of cold weather gear I had, and I still froze.  It was only 12 degrees when I left the house the other day.  That might not be too cold for some here, but it is damn cold in Mississippi. 

I had 17 turkeys come out on me that afternoon.  I guess they can tell the difference between an 30-06 and a shotgun.  One of the toms had about a 7 inch beard on him.
