But it wasn’t real fun. Calling it quits for the 2018/2019 season. Never was able to connect with a buck this year, Took a small doe early season so not completely eating tag soup
Out hunting this weekend and was hoping for a hitlist buck to come through. Got some good footage in the process. Forgive the music, it was raining and I was in my shooting house, which has a tin roof and believe it or not, that tin roof gets annoying on video lol

Had an awesome squirrel hunt this morning! A friend brought out his dogs to my farm today for some great squirrel action. All grey squirrels. Ended up with 11.

Better Late than never especially when it comes to filling that buck tag. Got it done in Floyd County yesterday with this 9 point. Got it done at 30 yards with the PSE

found this on youtube
bet this is the first time this type hunt has been posted about on here........
older son and i went to Texas, not to be outdone, the wife, younger son, her sister and nephew went to Puerto Rico (using my Hilton Honor points from all my traveling). redneck wife found a guy that takes you on an "iguana safari" using high powered pellet rifles. Two farms, one was a "trophy" farm. could only shoot two there. :)
she said the key was to shoot them in the body first, as they were hugging the branches, they would raise up and then you shoot them in the head. said it was some kind of fun.

I finally got to set some traps back out Christmas Day and caught this male this morning. This is the same location that I caught 3 females couple weeks ago.

Been a great season! Tagged out Saturday with my bow. Daughter got one with a muzzle loader during the late muzzle loader season. She let a few walked during gun season.

Keeping the boys busy this fall
I can't find my hunters guide and my phone is messing up and can't pull it online. My question is how many deer are allowed to take this weekend? Can it be a buck or a doe? Can he buy bonus doe tag's. First year taking a young fellow hunting.
Hope everyone had a good Christmas, just bought a farm in Owsley County (Close to work as my girls have all grown up). My GSP and I still like to walk the woods in search of that elusive grouse. Has anyone ever hunted this place, it's about 7 miles from my farm. I normally hunt MILL Creek in Jackson County but clearcuts are a thing of the past I believe.
Can you spot the hunter?

I was able to harvest my first elk on Saturday Morning after an day break spot and stalk hunt that ended a lot quicker than I had anticipated. I was not using a guide and even though my brother and I had been scouting on and off since July the last few weeks since deer rifle season I had seen very little fresh elk sign.

I'm not allowed to attend any family holiday functions without making up a batch of his beer cheese to take along!!!
Would anyone be able to recommend a consulting forester who works Anderson County? I can find a list of individuals online but would like to work with someone who has recommendations.

Also any questions that I should ask in the interview process? I am new to selling timber.

Thanks
Not sure why but its been a long time since I was last on the site. Glad to see all is going well.

me and my buddy got out and got it done on some public land a while back. Done in an hour with 2 limits

This was in the local paper....

Local hunter in Russell County finds a near 200” GIANT dead on his farm, hate that it ended that way for this once in a lifetime buck!!
Anybody gone to Alaska from around here? And what can you tell about it? Cost, experiences, what to do and not do, ect. I'd like to plan a trip for next fall and any info I can get is appreciated.
Big black bear destroyed my sisters garbage bin last night. She saw it. She lives about 10 minutes from me and very ready to let me know when it comes back:D just hope it’s during rifle season
what are the orange regulations AFTER modern gun season? I can’t seem to find a thing on it.
I’ve worn Cabela’s rubber boots for a long time. Uninstalled and insulated.
On average I get bout 3 years out of em with hard mountain hunting. Had my 800gr split yesterday.
Thinking bout looking into the Irish setters or Lacrosse.
The ones that use em which do you recommend?

I have been duck hunting 42 years. Saturday the duck Gods smiled on me with the shooting of a Mottled duck with a transmitter on its back and a band on the leg, a first for me.

This gal I suspect is the one who dug out my dirt hole from behind yesterday morning. Rebaited and put a log backing rather than the grass clump.

I looked up and saw what looked like 50 or so huge geese flying away from me 1/4 mile or more away from me. They looked HUGE and didn’t make any noise like a flock of geese whatsoever, just that cooing sound. The only thing I could think of was sandhill cranes, but I know nothing about them, so that’s a wild guess. Any ideas?
Anyone have a pair of Vortex Crossfire? I'm thinking of buying the 10x42. Where I hunt I just can't justify spending over $200 on binos.
An interesting question was posed on Randy Newberg's Hunt Talk Radio podcast: Should a hunter consider his tag filled if he hits/wounds an animal, but is not able to harvest it? Legally, it obviously does not count against the limit, but should the hunter count it? I'm interested to hear what you guys have to say.
OK guys I need some advice/reccomendatons. I'm fed up with the generic scopes that came on my last two rifles. The questions is: Is it possible to find a decent scope for $100 or less and if so what brand? Thanks for your help.
I shared this tale of a malicious farm animal on another forum and thought you guys might appreciate it.

Some years ago...nearly a decade, probably, I was sneaking through the dark spring woods to be near a field where I often seen the local gobblers hang out. It was still pitch dark as I crept through the brush, as I wanted to be in position well before any of my targets woke up. It was also very quiet, and every little stick I stepped on sounded like a gunshot to me. Thus I was already on edge when I first heard it close up.. the hideous alarm noise of the evil donkey, a fell and odious beast that was to torment me to this very day.

As I neared the place I intended to plop down, a terrible noise broke the pre-dawn silence. It is a difficult sound to describe; like a cross between a deer snort and a dying hippo trying to clear a pulmonary obstruction. It's a wet, burbling chuffing noise, both repulsive in it's resonance and terrifying in it's sudden volume... the sound of the world's biggest hocker being brought to bear. It was also barely 20 yards away and cloaked in darkness, both literal and metaphorical.

Needless to say, I nearly evacuated my bowels that morning, and many mornings since. The long-earred varmint has good eyes too, as he often spots me approaching my deer stand regardless of the time of day. There used to be two of them, now only one. Unfortunately it's the loud one that survives.

I wish I had better pics, but these were taken from the stand that I shot my deer from this year. The afore-mentioned field starts maybe 25 yards behind it. Luckily Evil donkey was busy that day.

Do you have any wicked farm critters to deal with?
I'd like to say I found this, but the truth is somewhat different.

I wish I had seen both of this deer's antlers in a scope. ;)

I posted this a few years back. Grandson Jackson spotted this guy under the backyard feeder one year and wanted me to kill him for a euro mount for his bedroom wall, How do you say no to your youngest grandson. We donated the meat to a local food bank program and they were happy as heck with him. Dressed in the 200 lb range on Uncle Lee's scale, he was being stupid and had his mind on a pretty young doe and forgot to look around that day. When I put a bolt thru both lungs he only ran about 25 yards and fell over in a ditch, it took two of us along with my ATV with winch and a chainsaw to move him 50 Yards to where I could get a strap around his antlers and drag him out. The wife was standing on the deck with 91 dialed on the phone because she just knew I was going to flip that Yamaha over backwards on top of me but we survived.

friggin bear gonna have to go......
I been shuttling containers one place to another for near a month so she could go thru each one and decide what to keep, what to yard sale and what to throw away. Made a run this morning to oldest daughters garage for another load and ran across a surprise. I had this done for the youngest from a 300 + lb bear I killed in Canada.

Came across this article and it got me thinking. Has anybody ever tried one of these? If it helped you recover one deer you would've lost it would be well worth the money. I've never really considered one before, always thought they were a gimmick.

I had one I truly believe if I called him up and said George lets go to BFE and hunt camels his reply would be when to we leave and how long to I need to tell the wife we will be gone. Last I heard he had moved to Arizona tho.
One of the story's went like this. I had set up a Canadian bear hunt he wanted to go on but didn't have the needed deposit at the time. I told him no problem I will just send in both of ours and you can pay me whenever. I got a call a few weeks later that they were catching big bluegill out of a marsh on a F&W area he lived nearby. So off I go to meet up with him and catch myself a bucket full of cold thru the ice bluegill. There was several others that had got the word on that hotspot. As we are sitting there he says in loud enough voice the other guys around us could clearly hear. I bet you $600 I catch a fish before you do and I said OK knowing he was just messing with those other guys. Just a couple seconds later I pulled up a large bluegill thru the hole. Old George walks over and peals off 6 100 bills and hand them to me making sure those other guys seen it. Those guys went nuts, one to the other they were saying did you just see that guy lose $600 on a bet on the next fish. Him or me never told the other guys it was a joke and about the hunt deposit deal.
It seems like i read a long time ago for different bear species your response to a bear attack can change the outcome.

For instance if attacked by a black bear you are best off fighting it.
For brown/griz: definitely dont punch it in the face.
Thoughts?
Anyone rifle hunt moose before? Recommendations and experiences?

When did you start your kids hunting?
[​IMG]
My wife's first deer. She had the worst case of buck fever I've ever seen but after a couple of deep breaths she pulled off a one shot kill.

Yesterday I had a small catch circle with a trap full of grass. Reset and rebaited and had this female this morning.
Here’s a video of my little boy that was 5 at the time taking his first turkey!

I have a buddy whose family has land in Letcher county. They says they see bears frequently. Will they still not be hibernating when gun season opens in 2 weeks. I am up for a road trip but hate to waste my time if they are denned up. tia
