    Finally, the season opens tomorrow morning

    For central NC, rifle season opens tomorrow morning. My 300 has been whispering from the safe. I'll set it out in the barn tonight to avoid the sweats in the morning. Last week I spotted a buck in the neighbors pasture that was the largest rack that I've ever seen in the field, on a white tail. My neighbors have extended their fence line closer to my place for the horses. In the last few weeks since they've done so, the bucks have shown up. So I've been creeping around like a church mouse, waiting for Saturday. Hopefully I'll post a pic my tomorrow PM.

    For now, I hope the Lord is willin and the creek don't rise.

    Hope you bag the big one! I took a small(er) buck with a small 7 point rack on rifle opening day up here in Maine. Of course I had been bow hunting the month before so I had my area down.

    If The Lord is willing then the creek has nothing to do with it.

    Good luck.

    Firearm opening day doesn't happen until November 15th for deer here in Michigan. Good luck to all the hunters.

    We start tomorrow but I have nowhere to hunt.

    Good luck. I'm a little over half way through our rifle season, and I've only seen one deer. Spent yesterday out at a friends place, but didn't see anything bigger than a squirrel (I was ready to take the squirrel at the rate I've been going). I've NEVER gone out there and not gotten a shot at something. I guess they must have bed down a little earlier than I expected with ol' Brutus on it's way. I figured I'd get there during the pre-storm run.

    Remember, if there aren't antlers, it's probably a horse! J/K

    Good luck and hunting.

    We start next week Friday! I scouted my property but because of the drought the Bucks are scrawny.

    Good luck svgheartland!!!

    And good luck to everyone else this year, in your pursuit of wild game.

    Please be safe out there.

    A Father's Advice


    If a sportsman true you’d be
    Listen carefully to me. . .


    Never, never let your gun
    Pointed be at anyone.
    That it may unloaded be
    Matters not the least to me.

    When a hedge or fence you cross
    Though of time it cause a loss
    From your gun the cartridge take
    For the greater safety’s sake.

    If twixt you and neighboring gun
    Bird shall fly or beast may run
    Let this maxim ere be thine
    "Follow not across the line."

    Stops and beaters oft unseen
    Lurk behind some leafy screen.
    Calm and steady always be
    "Never shoot where you can’t see."

    You may kill or you may miss
    But at all times think this:
    "All the pheasants ever bred
    Won’t repay for one man dead."

    "Early Instruction"

    Gotta admit that I'm itchy. I'm not hunting with a gang down east anymore since we've got the farm squared away. But it ain't right sleeping in the house and calling it deer camp so I'm out here in the barn tonight with a hefe weisen and hope and squatters rights. Lord I hope I never grow up.

    And Eric........that stinks out loud. And I understand. Finding the land or finding a camp of guys your good with is tough Less land and fewer guys is my advice. 2-3 guys and a bit of land beats 1000 acres with buttholes. Start shopping in January. It ain't free anymore I'm afraid.

    Good luck. I'll be climbing a tree with the muzzleloader again tomorrow evening. I've seen a couple moving the last few days while driving around. I hope they are starting to chase around here. My last 2 hunts have been lots of squirrels and a grey fox. Luckily I got 2 with a bow already.
    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!
