    Good luck, and good hunting!

    My season is going well. Used both buck tags, have one doe tag used as well

    Mine and my wife's season is going fine. I've killed one doe and she's got two does. I wanted to get at least one doe before doe season is over. We only have a couple weeks left so we need to get with it this weekend. It's just getting cold enough for bucks to really come out in the daylight. I'm thinking to take the .270 or .280 out. Or maybe the 9.3x62.Anything 200 yards or less is dead meat if I'm even half awake with that thing. Deer die of heart failure when they see that big hole in the end of its barrel pointing their direction.

    I can't believe it, Jungle woman wimped out! She just got home from her job and I ask her if she wanted to go see if we could score a buck and she says it's too cold. I said well that's when the deer move, She said I'm the one that will clean it and I don't want to freeze skinning and dressing the deer. Tomorrow night she goes back to her regular job fore four nights so she's out of commission for the weekend. I'll probably go by myself in the morning.

    Took my friend Sandy out and put her in my stand for opening day in Ny and at first light she shot a 176Lb 9 pointer... Great buck.. she is thrilled, her first Ny buck after 11 years hunting there... I'll post pics later.. Photobucket isn't letting me copy the link...

    Yeah, she was thrilled with him for sure... Glad I could put her on him...

    Very nice.
    Where does a 179lbs put him on the size scale for that area? Body wise? Around here that is a bruiser for body size. 200lb is rare.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Here's a good pic for scale... We shoot does that will go 130.... I shot 1 doe that was 140.... But you have to be patient, they are there if you wait for them. This is at the butcher shop, they have a lot of 90-120 lb bucks on the ground... Hers is the close one

    Go get em brother!

    My season has been awesome so far, I'll be looking for varmints the rest of the season since I already have 2 deer in the freezer. May take a nice doe for the mother in law, she wants one and it is close to Christmas.....Well you know, the season of sucking up!

    That's a great NY buck!

    Yes, it is! Very nice.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.
