Let's keep this going throughout the season. Please post pics if you can. Guns, dogs, game, you name it.

Bear season has started and I've seen a few guys in the woods. The beech nuts are heavy this year and I think will play a role in where bear are found.

Archery season starts soon and a lot of the guys I work around are going crazy waiting for the 15th to roll around. Never done it, though I may try it next year. I have good access to nice areas and food plots maintained by friends.

I'm jazzed about the coming muzzle loader season and also bird season.

So, what do you hunt? What do you hunt with?

Since I'm the OP and get to set some rules, No Bashing. I will be glad to discuss hunting and land ethic with anyone in an adult way. Please keep it civil.

I shot my first deer just last year. I used to hunt with my Uncle when I was a teenager but never got anything. Then life got in the way with work, college, work, marriage, family, etc. Started up again a couple of years ago, in a very limited way. A few days a year. I got lucky last year.



We were late getting there. I placed my buddy at the bottom of the clearing and walked around to the top. I was not sitting more than 3 minutes before this one walked in front of me. 140 yards, shot through the heart. Went about 30 feet. Hard to see in the photo, but it was a 5 pointer. 120 pounds. It was great eating.

Good luck. I've got a new Howa in .223 with just that in mind. Working up a load for yotes. What are you using?

16" LMT piston AR with a 1.5-5x Leupold MRT scope. Plan on having a decoy out at about 100 yards and I'll end up using 55gr bullets as I think those are the only grain I have right now.

Those Howa's are good rifles.

Well, I guess I have offended someone with my picture of a responsibly harvested animal. Someone left me this reputation comment:

Quote:
I'm reporting your vile picture of murdered gory animals. Please at least have a warning of sick pictures if you post.
I guess they didn't read too closely, since I actually did give a warning.

Of course, now I have to find some more pics of dead animals to post.
