Not a hunting picture yet these guys will have to wait about 4 years. Funny how the instinct is already with them at 6 months old.

Thanks, after everything else getting cancelled this year it was sure good to get out there and spend a few weeks in the wide open spaces.

Opening morning second season today.
My daughter is always short on time so was super happy to take this 3 point at first light today.
She had developed a flinch the last couple years but has improved greatly with more practice and different loads.
300 yard shot with hornady reduced recoil 125gr sst from her 30-06.
Was very impressed as it broke the near shoulder and still exited the other side with massive internal damage.
I didn't expect that with this reduced load.

Nicely done! Don't underestimate SSTs at any velocity.

Finally after a 3 years of no kills, and an 18 day hunt this year.
416 Ruger, 20” barrel, 350 grain TSX hand-load.
About 25 yds, through the forehead and into the neck vertebraes.

That should fill your freezer nicely! Where is home for you?

Spent some time in North Dakota with friends last week, ringnecks and sharptails were not cooperative, at least waterfowl were. It was some of the coldest and windiest hunting I've experienced.

Didn't realize I hadn't followed up.
My son's girlfriend with her first buck ever. Taking the biggest one of the year so far.
We finished second season with 4 bucks and a doe.
My hunt will start the 18th.
My grandson was along for the morning as well.

Short moose hunt this year!
Our dogs have wolf vests made of kevlar with steel spikes on the back because of the wolf situation.

I had a busy day yesterday. Both my wife and I were drawn for mule deer in a good zone close to home. For the first three quarters of the two week season I was concentrating on trying to get Tina her deer but for some reason or other it never worked out for her. Then we got a big dump of snow and things got harder. So with 2 days left in the season I went out on my own while she was at work and shot this decent buck. Crappy pics but I was on my own.

Tina got off work at 1:30 and wanted to go out so I got my buck looked after and out we went. She spotted a buck that looked really good so off we went. After sneaking after him for a half mile we finally got into position and she made a perfect shot.

Shoot, you guys are making me jealous. LOL!!!!! I've been hunting hard since opening day 17 Oct, and nothing. I've seen lots of deer, but too young and not legal to shoot the county I've been hunting. A cold front is moving in, hopefully that will get them moving. :)

The doe was laying about thirty yards to the left of that bolt, double lunger pass through. Gotta love those Luminoks.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
