    Have hunted on the East Coast USA all my life
    Culled a piebald out of Eastern NC. Not a ton of white on him but with the forked beam and missing front upper teeth no doubt needed to be removed from the gene pool. Seems to be more and more around....

    This was my trophy from opening day of deer season. The Wildlife Officer circled us and then dropped in for a visit and license check. No deer yet!

    Took an old buck out of the gene pool with my Hawkins in muzzle loader season. Neat gnarly 9 points on side, 14 inch fork on the other. Lots of great jerky for my kiddos.

    Have to give credit to my hunting buddy @BJONES , he set me in his stand one night and told me to take the old lopsided buck if he showed. That first pick was from that night and I let him walk. Wasn't ready to end the season yet. The next morning a 2 or 3 year old buck came in at first light with those big heavy forks on both sides and I knew why Bobby wanted him gone. He came in 5 minutes later and I got him at 50-60 yards. Fun hunt

    @cagkt3 , sorry to hear no luck. What unit were you hunting? I’m originally from Utah and have hunted there most of my life. I used to give my parents a hard time about leaving Idaho and moving to Utah right before I was born. It took me 35 years to escape back to Idaho :D

    Congrats on a very nice buck! It's funny how big their antlers look when they are alive.

    A good start to the Idaho hunting season :) Beautiful fall colors, crisp mornings, and a nice bear with a black face. September is a wonderful time to be in the mountains!

    Time to start focusing on whitetail, now through thanksgiving. The rut will be kicking in any day now. A little snow would make things a lot easier :)

    And then let the games begin! Wolves, mountain lion & bobcat... I have yet to shoot any of these, but certainly not for lack of trying! When it comes to these critters, the fun is definitely in the hunting, not the killing.

    Doesn't bother me when I know these guys are in the area. Some monsters are killed in backyards.

    Beautiful country IdaRam, you are fortunate to live in such a beautiful country! Not a bad way to start the season. :)

    Yes, I love hunting whitetails, they are an amazing animal, and that is a bruiser, and hope you get a crack at him. Good luck Hogpatrol!

    HUNT0101-1(2).jpg Another urban whitetail. Never got this guy or found his sheds. He would have been a state record. His genes are still alive and well. :D

    IMG_2212.JPG IMG_2225.JPG IMG_2325.PNG My son got a moose opening day. Then I went south and got a ram on day 7. Now with a little luck we will get my daughter an elk in December. It has been a great season so far.
