Any of you guys hunt? In WI they close some rural high schools so the kids can go out and hunt. It's a big tradition here. I was talking to one of our truck drivers today as I was unloading a bunch of stones and he told me he was taking his boy out on his first hunt next week. His son is 11...

So, if you're going out and you have any success show us what you bag. Pierre, Tim???

Got this 3 point buck on Opening Day, which was this past Weds. Maybe around 35-40 yd shot with my .35 Remington Marlin 336 Lever Action rifle. Guessing 110# or so dressed out.

Two shots on this one, my first was a bit off and missed the spine on the neck shot, deer was thrashing around and suffering, so I put a second into him. Recovered both bullets just under the skin; I could see them if I moved the hair out of the way, which was pretty cool. .35 Remington Hornady LeverLution 200gr ammo.

And the knife I used :) This is a Kanetsune Blue Core knife I put the handle on around 7 years ago and never used. Knife worked very well!

I had a good week. Here are a couple pics on the hoof as it were....

And a couple success... Myself, my brother-in-law, and my friends 13 year old son all tagged out on moose, and I bagged a mule deer buck. We are meat hunting, so not interested in huge racks... Passed on a 60 inch bull moose, inside my comfortable shooting distance at 600 yards, but outside the realm of the ethical impact energy of a .308.

A couple harvest pics... For scale. I'm 6' 4", and a solid 280 pounds

This will make some great roasts and steaks, not to mention all the sausage!

Your food bill must be pretty low. :)

That buck you got is a nice one. Most of the guys around here would wet themselves if they bagged that one.

Yes, that is a monster! I love the deer sausage the Cajuns (coonasses) make around here; better than anything you can buy in a store. :)

I used to hunt but haven't in years. The last time I hunted deer my Dad and I went out a bit before I got married (20+ years ago). It seems like I don't have time anymore, plus now in eastern SD I don't know any landowners. Since Dad passed my heart isn't into hunting anyways.

Born and raised in Wisconsin I get the hunting thing.However I believe hunters should be required to cover up their kill/s when transporting them. I counted at least 30 dead dear coming back from up north yesterday. In trunks, on hitch racks, piled on top of mini vans, etc. I just think a little respect for the kill is appropropriate. I'd have flipped them all off if I didn't know they had rifles.

might be a neat idea to use the bone from the kills for handles. =D
