Hunting fun 2008
2 weeks hunting.
Opening day, first hour or so, perfect broadside on a 8 point. Gun jam! My fault for how I racked the rifle. CB to family to let them know the way it ran. 30 seconds later (or so) cousin shot it. Only good shot I had all season.
This year, because of a TB concern, no legal baiting in MI. This would be fine, however when I walked the property of nearby farms, plenty of bait piles. I'm not going to report people. Considered hunting their bait (as I'm not sure how I feel about the decision not to allow bait).
Caught a cold a few days in. Did not help (as I think the deer could hear me 2 farms away).
Sort of bummed. My mom's 70th b-day today, she is a big hunter, and I wanted to get her one.
After 10 years (since the knot was tied) the most my wife and I have ever been apart was 4 days. Seeing her after two weeks was a lot of fun. Wink wink, nod, nod.
Hope other hunters on the forum had better luck.
Missed a trophy 10 pt. Shot this 8pt with my bow. http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-...606224_751.jpg
Ended up shooting a 7pt for meat for another family. Missed a doe during early season with my bow. Haven't seen anything since the 7pt from the UP. All the deer are nocturnal down here.
We're doing pretty good here......freezer is already full!
Had deer tenderloin for breakfast this morning and venison stew for supper last night.
Rained cats and dogs all darn day. That sucks!
At least there was plenty of stuff to shoot at.
