    Default How did ya'll do this deer season?

    Well hells bells,, I killed a couple of freezer does,,kids killed a couple. And then I had to come over to Shreveport LA and earn a living. So basically my deer season was cut way way short. Much to my dismay. :( what I wanna know is how did everyone else do? We have enought meat in the freezer to last. Hope everyone else does too.

    My son and I are meat hunters, for the most part, so we put a lot fat does in the freezer (4 or 5, been down of late, usually it's around 8 or 9), along with some duck, grouse, and pheasant. Having hunted with me since he was about 5 years old, my youngest son, now 25, shoots the lion's share of the game.

    So, that's the thanks you get for all your time and money spent with the kids; they grow up and outshoot the living hell out of you!

    (Actually, he has been since he was around 14 - those dang young, fast reflexes - but he doesn't realize it's been that long and I don't tell him.)

    It's all ok, cause he's gonna take care of me in my old age (he doesn't know this yet but that's my plan) and I expect to cost a lot!

    Just rambling, here; love to hunt and the hours I spent with my son doing that all these years is beyond price, of course. May there be many more.

    Amen to hunting with your kids. I had a good hunting season, not for deer but for elk, I killed a bull in early November and then in January I got to go with my 12 yr old son and seehim kill his first elk, a calf. He made a great shot at 270 yds on the calf laying down, hit her in the neck and whe never moved. What a great way to spend a day. I can't wait till November so we can go elk hunting together again.

    Shitty. Flat-out shitty.

    Opening day, I got impatient when I heard one, and instead of waiting until it came into view, I tried getting up to see & it walked away. All I saw was a rump.

    The next day, I saw a spike (club rules forbid anything less than 3 + brow tine on one side) that ran off. 20 minutes later, 3 does came trotting into view so I held off thinking a big buck was running them. That damn spike showed back up. That was the last time I saw a deer from the stand.

    PLENTY on highway rights-of-way and open fields on the way to the camp, though.

    It's probably a good thing. My deer/beer fridge crapped out last week.

    Next to last day with a "Mississippi Muzzleloader". My oldest daughter was tickled to death. She's turning into a pretty good little hunter. Proud of her. I see some more steaks and sausage in the freezer.

I even had my sons first buck mounted for him Very proud moment for him and I, Continuing our Family Legacy Hunting Together Thanks to all for reading God Bless

    Normally my family as a whole does very well with both deer and bear. This last season we got 7 out of 9 bear tags filled (I didn't even see one last fall) and I think out of a total of about 12 deer hunters in my family we ONLY got 2 or 3 deer. This last deer season was horrible to say the least!
