I use my 34' for lodging at my hunting camp. I have full hookups and a porch with a tin roof on it that I pull up to.

I pulled it about 100 miles to the camp last Sunday. Works out really nice, except for muddy boots dirtying up the interior.

This trailer is nice enough for my wife and 1.5 year old to spend the weekend in if she wants to. My previous 1963 Overlander was kind of cramped.

Go to my picture site and see all of my trailers, some at my hunting camp after tornadic winds came through.

That Target Measures M.O.W.

That's Minute of Whitetail! That should do the trick! Or is the trick just seeing the whitetail?

Take care,

Hunting time

We use our '71 Safari every year during deer season. Our rifle season starts Saturday and I will be there ready to hunt. Sure beats sleeping on the ground in a lean-to.

I'm a little disappointed, John... unless you were shooting at a thousand yards, those four little holes should have been spread one in each quadrant of the bullseye... you're getting pretty sloppy there!

It makes me nervous to see "Miller High Life" endorsing a shooting target! Typically, beer ads are coupled with activities that go along well with a brew -- hopefully that is not the case here!

yukionna,

not to worry, the firearms get put away well before the adult beverages come out.

however, things are a little different here in the middlewest. this is a pic of one of my favorite small town taverns, one can have a beer and shop at the same time!

Hey John,
Just got back from deer camp myself. Was there last night and both of the past 2 weekends.
Deer camp is the AS, an outhouse, a couple of semi trailers full of junk and a couple of old tractors.
Been out 6 days now and haven't gotten mine. This weekend we'll go back up for the final weekend. So if it's brown it's down!
Saw five in a group last weekend but they busted me before I could pull the trigger.
My buddy got one last Sunday so we'll not go hungry.
Be nice to have a couple more though. We can each take 2 this year.
This is the first year in the Overlander.
Like hunting in luxury!
Good luck with your hunt!!!
Jerry

PS,
I'm pleased to see Miller endorse something besides the usual football, baseball, basketball etc. Maybe I'll buy a 12 pack of High Life this weekend instead of the usual Linenkugels.

goes to show

Good shooting with a 1966 BAR, doubt a new one is capable of that accurracy, like A/S older is sometimes better....jem

I know where the deer are

They are in my yard! Four of them regularly come around together and graze in our woods and a large buck (not of the four) leaped across our driveway when my wife walked up to get the newspaper Monday morning.

Back to John's original question.......

I haven't taken the trailer away on a hunt. My wife's family has a large farm in south Georgia teeming with deer, which is where I do my hunting. I've been spending a lot of time in the woods during the rut. I was told if I spent any more time away, I might be consigned to the Airstream as punishment. I can think of a lot worse things to have happen.
