Since we have more than adequate deer herd, the emphasis was on reducing it by taking does and fawn, which I did.  Ended up with 6.  Giving some away to single mothers and others that we feel are a bit needy.
I eat a high-fiber diet.  Lots of sawdust!

I snapped a cap on a doe but experienced detonation retardation.  ;D
In other words ...the primer failed.
Got back to the camp and the other two guys each had a deer, 10pnt. and a doe which is plenty for us so we quit hunting early.
Good hunt, could have done without the wind and rain.

Y eah i got one, I hit it with a van though haha, so anyway i was leaving my house and about 30secs down my road i was going only 70km/h and bam this deer ran into the front left of my van, i stopped got out and checked the damage, it wasnt to bad a few dents and a broken light, and everything plastic around the area was obviusly broken too. anyway it was kicking in the ditch still alive. from what i could se on it it had 2 brkoen legs 1 rear and 1 front, and a broken jaw, so i couldnt just leave it there since it was so close to my home, i went back and got the 308, came to the deer put'er down "it was doe"" and loaded it into the back of my van, hung it in my mobile garage and skinned it, gutted it and now its hanging in my shed frozen and ready to be cut up :) i got some pics if you want :) PM me, warning... the head isnt pretty :P

I spent some quality time sitting in a tree watching the world wake up.  Saw lots of squirrels and chipmunks filling their larder for the winter.  Heard the gentle snap of a used up leaf parting from the branch it resided on all summer.  Watched as the leaf floated to the ground ever so gently, landing with a gentle rustle as it nestled in with its kin on the forest floor.  Reassociated bird calls with the birds.  Heard and felt the heavy fog condense on the trees and drop to the ground.  Saw the wind winding its way along the hollows to brush against my cheeks.
Never did see a deer.
Will be out there again Friday.

 Cross the road vacation neighbors got 2, forkhorn was the biggest. Neigbors boy got a spike. Have seen several 8 pointers. I'll probably get another one out of the front yard and into the freezer, hopefully homeowners choice  :D. Heading down to her brother's hunt camp in Bama for the holiday. One friend hit a deer, got it fixed, and hit another  ???

The news today, the plumber/electrician on the job stopped by. He got a Bear, it was his second of the year...the first was with his truck.

Ok now, havn't been deer hunting but I did get me a buffalo back in the spring.  Neighbor of mine runs a feeder operation for beef.  Well somehow he got a herd of buffalo for a while and a bunch of those rascals escaped.  They tried to hem a few of them up but at that stage they'd tear out of a fence in a minute.  So, they came by and put the word out that they were fair game.  They were afraid they'd hurt somebody or get in front of a car.  Little scope of woods near here that I'd seen one of them stick his head out on occasion.  So I felt it was my duty to save the world and my neighbors of this dangerous escapee.  Took the old sks and went buffalo huntin.  Was a bugger to drag back to the house and dress but pretty good eatin.

I clipped a deer just this evening...  Only a broken marker light on the truck.  It ran away into the weeds before I could stop, so I guess it wasn't hurt too bad.  Seen more deer this year than any other.  Strange...   ???

Hmmm, Saturday night I had a one pound porterhouse steak, that cost half of what the last deer cost me per pound.  I am still pondering the ramifications of this.

Clearly, any venison, is worth twice as much, and tastes twice as good, as Texas beef.

Tiz a puzzlement.  A steak that can be cut with a fork, from good Texas beef, or a ticky old deer that needs to be ground to be fried.

Jeff, ya got to get out more.
