Some damn fine hunting their, bud.  Congrats. 

Thanks.  We had some nasty weather too.  It was funny, the wife had complained about how bad the weather was over the weekend (Sunday being the worst) and stated that she didn't believe all the stories she had heard over the years that bad weather improved the hunt. . . .  We got both deer on Sunday and she got her 3-point just minutes after she made her comment.

The wind was so bad Saturday night that we considered moving camp.  I dropped a few dead tree's around us instead.

We had the opposite.  45F and beautiful sunny skies.  Colder weather makes them move more, so it's always a plus.

My problem (for some time now) is that the area we hunt has a very low deer population.  The two bucks we tagged were the first two bucks we had seen and only saw one other buck that unfortunately didn't give my daughter an opportunity to shoot.  This was a three day hunt for us.

Our average deer count per day was a dozen.

I went on my first hunting trip last weekend in central Florida and only manged to shoot at 2 deers and saw no pigs. On the other hand my friends 8 year old shot a 6 point deer and a large boar in Texas.

Damn.

Nice buck. I'm going muzzle loader hunting again the third weekend in dec. I might wait for decent buck the first day, after that if it's brown it's down.

An elk and two deer this year.  Between those and the chicken harvest we had to get another freezer.  I neglected to take any pictures before dressing started.  (oops)

Got a few good kills in 2013, but here's my first kill of 2014. Took this cottontail with my Crosman 1322 (.22) pellet pistol at my mother in laws house. 15 yards, standing off hand, dropped like it never even felt it. Gotta love them hollow points!


I love pistol hunting, and especially airpistol. It really forces you to up your hunting skill rather than just getting a bigger scope and shooting farther. I shoot only iron sights as well.

Just talked the taxidermist, getting my deer mount back soon. 

3 weeks until I get my draw results back for my next hunts.

Didn't realize we had this thread.

This was not my kill, but I was helping to drive, so it was a group effort. The other small bucks and does we got with this group we didn't photograph. Just this nice one:

I usually don't photograph my kills, but I do have a few pics in my photo bucket other people have taken. Not sure of the when but a few are:

Buck with a muzzleloader and knife ( long story)


Gator with a harpoon and knife


Coyote with 375 Holland and Holland Mag ( just what I had in my hands)

Yes...one of my pest hunting permissions.  Large piece of property but pretty sub-urban, if you were to shoot off a firearm there a swat team would probably show up.

Thanks, one of my goofy obsessions...

It's a Cometa Lynx, spanish made air rifle.  .22 caliber with a 10 shot magazine, upgraded pressure regulator, custom trigger mechanism, carbon fiber custom suppressor.  Very accurate and quiet, I practice by shooting at paint balls at around 50 yards.

I never knew anyone who hunted alligators before. Do you eat them?

Of course.

Do you freeze it? Can it? How do you cook it? I almost had alligator bits when I was in Florida, but the line was too long, so I have never tried it.

This is 2009. First year my dad and i both got our bulls. We were the only ones out of 8 guys at camp to get our elk. We were some happy dudes that year. Can't wait to give it another try this year.

Well done.  Good luck this year.  I'll be out there second season Rocky Mountain Elk.  We hunt around Ukiah.

I freeze what we don't eat fresh. When I cook it, it is usually grilled, or gumbo. One way I really like is cut up in bite sizeish strips. Take a glass bowl and put a bunch of hot sauce and lemon juice in it. The lemon juice neutralizes a lot of the heat of the hot sauce, so something like Texas Pete will have no heat. Marinate the strips for 10 or 15 minutes, then throw it on the grill. The jowl meat is the best, you can use it most any chicken recipe. The tail meat can be used in fish or chicken recipes. The leg meat is real fishy, yet sort of beefish. You just have to be mindful of the texture. The only way I can describe it is hard on the outside, gooey on the inside, and if it gets over cooked it is tough. The one in the pic was going into the less edible size range. The smaller ones are much better.

The one in the pic is 8'11" and weighed about 450lb. It was all 4 grown men could do to get it in the back of the truck.


This one was 5'10", weighed about 70lb, and was much better eating. They reach a point, usually between 8' and 9' where they start to toad out, and put on much more weight than length.
this one was 8'1", an only weighed around 180lb, and was good eating. The first gator pictured was only 11" longer, but weighed over twice as much close too 3x. I've seen 13 footers weigh 1800 to a ton. I wouldn't even consider eating that.
