Well, I guess I'm allowed back in the house. I finally brought home some meat on the last day of rifle deer season.

The best eating kind also, young and tender.



Taken at 100 yards with it connecting between the eye and the ear. No meat wasted. Practice from the bench really paid off.

Called it until late season around 1:30. Not a bad rifle season, I shot a doe and my son got a 5 point. First time I've ever stopped hunting until the very end if I had a tag left. It somehow just feels wrong. Oh well, I have a very long honey do list that is getting started.

Went out today with hopes I'd fill my buck tag, in my stand well before day light. Didn't see any deer till about 9:45 and couldn't get a shot at any of them... seen a small 4 point around 10:30. Around 12:30 I could here a deer running in my direction, it was a nice doe but had another behind her. The doe came with in 30 yrds of my stand and moving pretty quick, the second one finally showed itself but it was moving pretty quick too.. at that time I seen horns and knew he was a good buck.. they never stopped moving and i didn't think he was gonna give me a shot... well the doe finally slowed down and came through a big opening, the buck slowed alittle and came through the same opening.. I calmed my nerves and took a deep breath and as he stepped out I let the .270 sound off. He dropped in his tracks..!
I'm super pumped to have success on the last day.
I have more pics but this is right as I walked up to him. Don't worry fellas he was tagged..!

After seeing 1 deer in 8 days of hunting Hickory Run SP, this morning I spotted a lone deer approaching, about 80 yds out. Now I'm getting excited and as I go to put the scope on it, I'm busted by 3 does that came unseen from the opposite direction, putting all four into flight. What are the odds of this happening?

Had three doe stop about 20 yards from me while hunting SGL 39 in Venango Co. With the warm temps and no snow, I decided to wait for the flintlock season to fill my tag. Doc in Pa.

My brother shot a 7 point this morning and we tracked it for 8-900 yrds before it went down into the swamp. Felt really bad because we had great blood but we just couldn't go any further.
