With all the acorns around here(White Oak) we should do well in the woods.Hopefully when I get back on here Wednesday I can post some pictures. Everyone please feel free to post pictures of your trophys here as well. We can make this the trophy picture thread , Hunting pics and stories thread. Tell us your story or show of yours or you kids or anyones trophy. I will add some pictures Wednesday when I return to work.

*****Please don't put any bloody pictures if you can help it. Have some respect for the animal and the people on the forum. Thanks*****

Our season begins in the morning as well. Tammy is on her way here to hunt for the first time in many years. I'm tickled about that. She has a doe permit and I have been passing up deer with the bow at her stand in hopes they will be there for her in the morning. If its nasty out I will sit with her in the constructed blind and if its not raining I'll sit in a brush blind I built a couple hundred yards away.
This will be the first time she has got to hunt on her own property. :)

I really want to learn to hunt, and how to clean and quarter up the meat.  We don't have any deer around here but there is a winter season for moose.  Some friends have told me I could tag along with them (I think it is in Jan or Feb) but there is something about hunting at -30, -40, and colder temps that just doesn't sit well with me... !!

Adam, your kids are truly lucky to have a dad who has the know how and the inclination to teach them this stuff.  Y'all have fun out there.  I look forward to hearing stories.  :)

Season starts tomorrow in Missouri (gun), been hard at spotting and watching as I also bow hunt.
Yesterday had a small 8 point almost run in the pop-up with me, he was chasing a doe. Funny thing was he was doing all the chasing and there was a nice 8 point and a big 11 point just waiting to run him off. Should be good, as I saw 16 deer yesterday and 10 today, both days was
less then 3 hours time.

Our season doesn't start until early December but my SIL sent me this picture of a young buck taken off their farm this morning.



In Iowa it is illegal to take a true albino deer.

Nice piebald. 8)

Our season here has started as the wettest in my memory.  It has rained cats and dogs all day here.  Starting tomorrow is snow so things are looking much better.

I am waiting to hear if Tammy got one today. ???

Tammy left her blind for only 1 hour today to go visit Catherine and thier new puppy. While she was gone I sat in her blind. Thats when the big doe crossed. :D  She'll get one tomorrow. (hopefully)  :)

Norm, that buck is illegal in Missouri, as we have a new rule this year that says a buck must have at least 4 points on one side. Neat deer though, especially if he would have been a nice 8-10 point to mount.

Norm, Iíve never ever saw a deer like that.  I would think a sighting would be something like one out of a million.

Deer season in Arkansas opened last Saturday.  Kathy wonít let me hunt as she has names for most of em and feeds the DanG things apples.

Me and my nephew have land in north Missouri.  Nephew called this morning at 8:30 and said him and his buddy had 3 does on the ground out of a 13 deer herd.  Just now got a call and he said he got a 10 pointer out of a herd of somewhere tween 30 and 40.  Told em I need pictures for the FF or it never happened...will see.

I went this morning and had a nice buck walk up on me. I never did manage to get him in my sights good before I sneezed and off he went. I took a doe this evening. Three of them came running out and one stoped right in front of me. After I got to the house I found out they were runing from my son.

Our poaching season ended Saturday at sunup.  Iíve heard a lot of suspicious shots from a high powered rifle right about sundown or after sundown for the last month or so. 

This past week it sounded like a rifle range here and there around our farm.  Lots of 10 shot bursts.

Our opening day was cold with rain and mist of snow here and there with winds up to 30 mph.  I bet more deer got shot out of a truck window than by any other means.

Today was better.  Sunny with light winds.  Crisp and cool this morning warming to around 60 this afternoon.  I didnít hear many shots.

Iíve not went out yet.  But Iíve had my 1895 Marlin 45/70 leaning in the corner of the sawshed.  We often see deer right there on our lot.  Every time I step out of the shed,  I scan the woods in back and up in the north end of the lot where they cross or stand to watch us.  None yet.

Haven't seen a deer nor track around here since last fall. I used to see mostly does in 3's or 4's and solitary bucks the past few years. Last winter pretty much did them in , in my area with 12 feet of snow - 6 feet of depth.
Move'n on.

If the deer was taken during youth season here in Missouri I am pretty sure it would be legal. I would have to double check but I do not believe the antler restriction applies to the youth season. I bring this up because of the youth in the picture.

I've only saw one deer so far and this is the third day. I did come over and get in the elevated blind this morning because the wolf howling was unnervingly close. The first howl at day break was far enough away to only cause a few shivers. The second had me listening for foot steps through the frozen tag alders.

Shot a nice 8pt opening day. 2 1/2 year old 15 inch spread  not real heavy mass on the head bones. Probably 130 to 140 lb nice southern Michigan deer. Warbird Michigan wolves are protected I hear some even have radio trackers  if it quits moveing for any length of time they come looking for it. Not the way I want to meet my local CO.
