    Good luck to all you "able-bodied" folks - I am missing this season with this damned ankle.

    Saw 11 or 12 total yesterday and closed the deal on a fat doe 166# about 15 min before legal ending hrs.
    stepped it off today 58 yards in a open bean field . I usually never take that distance of a shot because its usually unethical to do so and it usually never turns out the way it should ,but there was no wind and she gave me the perfect opportunity . 35-40 is usually max and in the woods 25 yds is usually tops because of how thick it is .

    I'm going to guess this was with a bow.

    One Down

    I couldn't go opening day (Oct.1) but I did manage to get one with the smoke pole this morning, which was my first hunt for the season.

    This is the first year I've been able to hunt in a really long time and this doe was a good confidence builder. I made a few rookie mistakes but I also did a lot of things right. Experience, instinct, or whatever you want to call it kicked in and that was the difference between taking a deer on the first trip in long time and not. The one thing that surprised me was how sad I felt when I saw her on the ground. I guess that's the difference time makes? But it was a good kill and she will provide some really good venison.

    One more in the freezer like this and it'll be time to hunt horns!

    Everyone have a good season!!!:)

    I have had a little luck so far this year. I killed a slickhead with the bow so far in Missouri. I went to Wyoming the first of October and killed 3 speedgoats, 1 buck with the Cooper 25-06 and two does with the Knight muzzleloader. Here are a couple of pics.

    I just started hunting last year and only had 3 days before going back to work (4weeks on 2 weeks off) but this year my whole time home falls in the first two weeks of our firearm season in Maine. I will be in the woods / under the powerlines every legal minute I can until I get my buck. Nice harvests everyone and keep the pics / stories coming. Can't wait to put boot to field and lead to vitals.
