Anyone kill a deer yet?

Almost got one yesterday, lucky for her I hit the brakes in time. Rifle season for us (free land owners) opens Saturday and runs till the end of December. While I no longer can hunt them my son still does. Their habits have already changed. Use to see them in the field every night, now it's rare to see them. By the end of the first week he usually has one hanging just hunting a couple of hours hear and there, whenever he can get the chance, after that it gets really tough to get one.

Bambi will succumb to the new smokepole (or maybe the old smokepole) this weekend.

Bought a CVA Mag-Hunter at a pawn shop for $80.

The bore is good, but the breachplug was stuck and damaged beyond use.

Dissembled and ended up heating the heck out of it to get it out.

Thoroughly cleaned everything, a new breachplug and a new illuminated reticle scope.

If my Son shows up I'll let him use it ( and stick to my proven 1861), otherwise I'll test it out.

Opens for us day after tomorrow.

 

Like B A said; their habits have changed in the last week.

 

Used to see 3 or 4 in the backyard every evening. Now nothing,they are only visiting after dark.

lol.

 

I hope to help my son get one this season.

 

I know NOTHING about deer hunting.

 

Where to go, what to do, and on the chance that we put one down, then I'm really screwed.

 

I need someone to hold my (our) hands for the first time or two especially with the field dressing.

 

I'm honestly not sure I could do it.

 

My son on the other hand, has it all figured out.

 

"Dad, you should keep 50 gallon drum liners in the back of the car so if we roll up on a fresh road kill we can grab it."

 

:rolleyes:

 

"Dad, I want to stalk the deer like the native indians did."

 

:rolleyes:

 

"Dad, I want to make arrows out of wooden dowels."

 

He's driving me crazy. :banghd:

Nothing at all wrong with road kill. A few years back we woke up to find this "road kill" in our driveway about 60 yards from our back door, coyotes got her. Being that the season was long over and we had better things to do than wait for a cop to come and tag it my son just took the back straps and dragged her into the woods so the yotes could finish their meal.

K of Q...is it the 17 year old who is hunting...or a younger sibling? The 17 yr old is too old for youth deer day (16yr max) this Saturday in some zone...and this Saturday is also youth pheasant day. If you have a younger child I can give you a few youth hunt spots next year. I am taking my 11 yr old out Saturday and during the teachers convention if he is not tagged out.

Yes, the 17 y/o is the aspiring hunter gatherer deer whisperer. :laugh:

 

His indian spirit name is going to be "Pisses off Father." :clown:

 

I do appreciate the offer however.

 

Good luck this weekend.

 

I'm taking a USPSA Range Officer class this weekend.
