    Default Deer hunting

    I wanted to wish all of our hunters out there safety and success during deer season. I know bow season has been in full swing here in Missouri for several weeks now, but I didn't get to shoot my bow enough to hunt with it this year. I'll still get to hunt during the firearms season though, I'm taking my oldest son out for his first hunt this year. May your hunts be safe and your freezer full of venison!

    And for the wives out there, please allow me to explain why we deer hunt.

    Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

    I'm gonna go deer hunting for the first time ever on Thanksgiving. I've been watching them for weeks and know their habbits very well. I just hope I see one with a nice rack.

    Good luck hunting and stay safe. Some of the best venison I have ever had has been at the firehouse. I personally aways preferred hunting the two leg dear over the four leg deer (at least until I got married).

    I'm taking three 15 year olds out this weekend for youth season and again during regular season, hopefully I'll get some time to hunt myself while they're in school

    Thumbs up Well,...................

    Grandma (My oldest Daughter's new name, now that HER Daughter had twins) has started off the season here in Maryland by getting a 5 (Yeah, 5) Point Buck on opening day last Thursday. Friday was a washout, then on Saturday she got a 10 pointer. Son got a Doe that dressed out at 130 on Monday. Me? Haven't been out yet, too damn many fools with guns out there.

    For the past few years when I lived in Kentucky,whenever I had the money for licenses,ammunition,camo and such,I wouldn't have the time.When I did have the time,I wasn't able to scrape up the spare cash to get more than the license to go.
    I been skunked so many times,my "buddies" painted a white stripe down my jacket one year,so I'm hoping to get lucky again soon.Not long ago,I was out for squirrel and a doe came running up to where I was sitting and passed calmly and close enough I could have reached out with my .22 and touched the barrel to her.
    Maybe there's hope for me this year.Good luck to everyone,be safe and I hope PETA uses lipstick when they kiss you where you want it,just to make the ol' lady wonder what you were up to while away.

    Okay, I know it isn't a deer hunting story. But, how about a doe antelope and a 400 yard shot? It was my first big game hunt, both my brother and I filled. Good luck to all y'all out there.

    Don't know if I'll get to go this year (the wife went into labor opening morning and now that they're home the season's almost half over), but I think I've got a couple guys that might fill a couple tags for me. I need some real friends that'll donate me some meat while I sleep in every morning.

    Operator: 911, what's your emergency?

    Hunter: (Frantic) I just shot my hunting partner.....I think he's dead!

    Operator: Okay sir, you have to be calm, take a deep breath

    Hunter: Okay, what should I do

    Operator: First, make sure he's not breathing

    BANG

    Hunter: Okay, now what?

    Real friends would come drag yer axe outta the house and tell your wife it's an intervention from domesticity.

    So I was sitting in the stand this morning and it was getting right out there until the cows showed up. They didn't cause much trouble though. A few minutes later several deer came out nowhere and started going crazy. One of them even hit the fence, fell over and started flopping around. They hauled tail out of there before I could get a shot. I then saw another group of deer running through the thicket a ways off. Then a few seconds later this little dog shows up and growls at the cow. I shot the dog in the face with a .243. The dog is best decribed as a mini chow (wild-looking). No deer showed themselves after that.

    I tried the other end of my property this evening with no luck.
