I didn't look hard to see if one was started, but if it was, let me know and I will merge them both.

The local State Park had it's deer reduction hunt yesterday and today. 6 of us were signed up, one guy couldn't make it today and he was skunked yesterday. So, 5 of us ended up with 11 deer.

I ended up shooting Bambi yesterday AND his mom, and his Dad today. wink grin

3/4 to 1 1/4 ac pond LMB, SMB, PS, BG, RES, CC, YP, Bardello BG, (RBT & Blue Tilapia - seasonal).

sounds like a productive day esshup. how big was the buck?

here is my buck from this year. shot him on 11-08. he left a doe after they came out of standing corn. I grunted him in first time by but he ran by too fast for a shot. ended grunting, doe can calling and finally the snort wheeze brought him back by for the shot at less than 15 yards. crazy hunt. my best buck yet.
anybody else get one yet? always like seeing other peoples deer pics.

I have seen a few places where deer were to many. Parks and neighborhoods. And not enough food to go around. Scott sound like a good freezer hunt and XT that is a nice buck. grunting, wheezing and such is something lot of deer shooters don't see. Just deer hunters mostly.
Do not judge me by the politicians in my City, State or Federal Government.
Thank The Good Lord the government in Washington DC gets little done.

Got one Sunday. I wasn't paying attention, and looked up as a big ten point went into the woods in front of me. He had just crossed the alfalfa field. If I'd only been looking at the right time. Oh well, I few minutes later this eight point came out. I was ready this time. Not a trophy, but the best buck I've taken in my short four years as a deer hunter.
We have more deer/bucks than we've had in four years since we bought our place.
3 yr old pond, 1 ac, 15' deep.
I think that's about all I should put in my little pond.
