sorry to report nothing in the freezer yet...

but there is always next weekend! boy what a good time, it's always nice to get out in the woods even if all you see is squirrels, grouse, turkeys, and one donkey! we corraled him (gus) and returned him to the farm he escaped from.

When I was young a farmer a few miles from us painted "cow" in red on each of his cows (black and white holsteins!!) he had so many shot. Gus is lucky you found him, he lives to escape again.

Johnhd,
I left out last Fri., drove 116 miles and parked the trailer. I went to the woods, put my treestand around a tree and went back to camp. I woke up Sat. morning to 24 degrees and a nice frost. I hunted low on the ridge because I had heard that the buck were staying in the hollows during the previous week of muzzleloader hunting. The only thing I saw was 6 does 1/4 down from the top of the ridge and they crossed 50 yards above me. I kept looking for the buck and even heard him raking his antlers on trees at the edge of the field on the top of the ridge. Rats, foiled again. I saw nothing but squirrels and chipmunks the rest of the weekend. Isn't wildlife wonderful? At least I have a doe in the freezer from the bow season. I fly to TX. tomorrow afternoon and will hunt over the weekend with friends. Wish me luck.

i hope you have a good time on your next hunt. good luck!

just got off the phone with one of my hunting buddies, he shot 5 this year. one buck, 4 does.

with the current CWD thing going on i'll be able to hunt until the end of january in the intensive harvest zone. in the eradication zone i can hunt until the end of march, plenty of time left...

i was at my fathers place today cutting pine boughs for the wife, didn't see any thing, but i'll grab the '06 and look around this weekend. there is a pond there that the deer drink at, i think i'll set up there at dawn.

we sure could use some snow, that would make sighting better.

john

Boy, I wish we were allowed to use rifles in Ohio. Ohio only allows shotgun with slugs. Range is very limited, so you have to get real close. Slugs are heavy and they drop fast.

I wonder what the deer herds are going to be like in a couple more years, you guys have chronic wasting disease, we have the bovine tuberculosis problem (thanks to a single game ranch). My in-laws property is adjacent to the t.b. management area, where you are allowed as many deer as you can harvest...

pick


have you ever tried sabot slugs? they don't reportedly drop as much.

my gun of choice is a browning BAR 30-06, whole lot better than any shotgun. but thousands of hunters use shotguns sucessfully every year.

the county i live in has been shotgun, muzzleloader, handgun for a long time, they allowed rifles this year.

our DNR is serious about thinning the herd, they were planning on using helecopters to shoot from. last i heard they will not, depending on how the hunt turns out. get this, in the CWD eradication zone farmers can shoot deer from "implements of husbandry". that means tractors, combines, atv's and pickup trucks if they have farm plates. the only thing they suggest but NOT require is that you stop the vehicle before shooting.

strangest deer season i've ever seen.

drones

ron,

i think we'll keep the drones for terrorists, they seem to work well for that.

as for your comments, i'm geussing your are opposed to hunting in general. and possibly guns too.

that is o.k., to each his own.

i just want you to know i am NOT cruel to animals. i've got two dogs and two cats. and love them dearly. they most likely get better health care than half the people on this planet.

i have never shot at a deer more than twice. i usually get them with the first shot. that is because i take my responsibility as a hunter very seriously.

what i would like to tell you is that most of us in the midwest come from farming backgrounds. that tought me that animals live until they die. and they should be well cared for in the meantime.

believe me the deer i've shot are usually dead before they hit the ground, they do NOT suffer!

john

Deer problem

Deer have become terrible pests in our area. They are constantly being killed on the road near my house. My wife hit one ($3000 damage) and my policeman neighbor totalled his squad car on one.

If I can ever get to a fresh kill in cold weather, it will hang in my workshop and turn into venison sausage. Not legal, but why waste good meat?

I can find up to a dozen deer sleeping in my front yard almost any night, and I almost hit one last week as I came up my steep driveway. They were all sleeping in the yard and bolted right across the drive below my headlights. I missed the doe by inches.

We have a neighboring town that is trapping them and trucking them to ranches in Mexico. They were so overrun that it is unsafe to drive and the deer are stripping everything. Their town council wanted to hire shooters, but there was such an outdry that they decided to try trapping them.

Off Topic Thread

Sorry Chas, this is an "off topic" thread, if it needs to stop I guess the moderators would have to make the call, just discussing another way to enjoy the rigs a little longer...

This is the "Off Topic" Forum. As long as people are civil and not personal, then the topic will go on. I personally like a little debate. I might even join in on the debate, but not in this post, as I am posting as a Moderator.

I know that when the thread was posted in the beginning, it was with good intentions and John HD was posting about a past time that he and many millions of others enjoy.

Every topic and subject has its pro's and con's. This one is no different. Enjoy and be kind.
