I thought I would start a deer report thread.

I killed a yearling buck with 7 points about 3:30 Saturday, body weight is probably 150 pounds.

I've got to get a cart for hunting way back in the woods. I borrowed one last night, but I woudl probably still be dragging otherwise.

The Saturday weather had the deer on the move all day.

Nice shooting and tell Jessie I said nice shooting by her as well. She looks happy! What about Jeff, did he get left out of the fun?

Is that 11 or 10?
Can't tell if that one is big enough to count.

BTW good job, can't wait for season to open up here.

Nice deer John! Did you shoot him while still sitting in the barbers chair?

BTW, is that Jessies first deer?

Nothing for me yet (that's right John, your sister has out hunted me so far!). But like I've said before, I'm cursed. I've NEVER shot a deer opening weekend. All for me have been the last weekend. Go figure.

I would post a picture if I had one! The daughter and I had no luck. I'm glad to hear that others had a better time. Especially John and Jessie. Nice deer guys!
Hopefully we can get out again before the season ends.

I have none so far, but I could have.

It was really foggy Sunday morning. Visibility is only out to 50-100 yards. The dew droppings from trees hitting dried leaves on the ground created a lot of noise, making it virtually impossible for a novice hunter like myself to detect motion by sound.

I got bored.

So I got a journal paper out for light reading. It is about the Fourier-Melin transform I need to support my research. I was really into the paper. The next thing I knew it was already 9:30 and my friend (the property owner) wanted me back in the house by 9:30 AM. So I packed up and headed back to the house.

On the way I ran into his wife who just got back walking the dogs. She said she saw a deer walking around the front yard. The deer was last seen moving toward the left of the property along the small creek. Hey, that's where I was !!! The deer could be just walking by me for all I know. Thanks to the Fourier-Melin paper ! Oh well, at least I got a good reading done in the woods. grumble.

This past weekend I was hunting in Franklin county and didn't see a single deer. I did see
a coyote, red fox, owl and lots of tree rats.

The coyote I did take a shot at though.

My son is using my MT6551 and I'm using a 700 ADL in 30-06 and my trusty Colt XSE.

I hope next weekend is a little more productive.

No luck here either. Hunted Saturday and Sunday and the only deer I saw was a nice 10 point buck I helped another guy drag out of the woods. Damn, I'm glad it was mostly downhill. Maybe next Saturday. I hope it is cooler.

All this talk is getting me hyped up to go deer hunting, but I must wait till 12/3.
Link Posted: 11/20/2003 5:53:38 AM EST
DOES, DOES, and MORE DOES. That's all I see, I'm starting to think that we've either got some spontaneous generation going on at our farm or the does are hermaphrodites. Then again it could be that a lot of the bucks already got taken. I heard more shots when I was bow hunting in one evening than I did all opening weekend. Poaching SOB's. I think you would have to start hunting about August to beat them to it. They need to start a Poacher's season, when we can hunt them.

I don't hunt for trophy,
So I get antlerless only tags.
I've only ever got one antlered tag, and that was my first.
Heard them does over my way.

That's an awful long way to herd deer. Maybe if I loaded them up on a stock trailer though, hmmm. There will be one less of them after this weekend. If I don't see a buck, I'll end up taking one of them just for the meat. Oh well, happy hunting BaNo, and keep it safe.

Drove North to Chariton county to get a wall-hangin' buck--and I shot a forkhorn that weighed over 150 pounds! They DO get bigger north of the Big Muddy. My brother, home for a few days from Merrie Olde England, got a doe here in SW MO and dad got a button buck yesterday. The freezer is burstin'!

Did he shoot it with the Five Seven?

If so, how far did it run and how long did it take to bleed out?
Link Posted: 11/24/2003 5:19:25 AM EST

That's cheating. I wanted to see how the Five Seven would do all by itself. What's wrong with you people?

Two days, only saw (4) does. At 5:15 on the last day, with daylight almost gone, I radiod my buddy that I was going in. He said, "Give it 15 more minutes." As soon as the radio clicked off, I saw a deer come out of the woods 250 yards away. It came down the clover lane and stopped 150 yards out. I sighted in and waited for it to move. But it just kept getting darker and the deer wasn't budging. I fired twice. The first aimed at his heart, the second was a quick shot before he jumped. As soon as the second shot went off, he disappeared. When we went to the spot, I was stunned to see I dropped it in place. I had thought it was a doe. I missed the antlers in the dark. It was an 8 point buck, about 160 lbs. I missed the heart, but somehow managed to hit it square at the base of the skull. The bullet didn't leave an exit wound. It had nothing left inside the skull. I could shoot a million times and never hit like that again. It's better to lucky than good!

I'd have pictures, but it was dark by the time we picked it up and we had to get it to the meat plant before they closed at 7.

Last year, it was my Bulgarian AK on a doe. This year it was my Yugo SKS on a buck. June will be my G1 Fal on black bear. Who say you can't hunt with mil surp!

Where are you going Bear hunting?
And congratulations on the 8 point buck!
