I hunted the Gibou this past Friday, Saturday & Sunday didn't see a thing. I came back to Williston and
Yesterday afternoon (Monday the 20th) at 3:15 we saw 3 Deer we knew 2 were Does but the third we couldn't tell for sure.
My Girlfriends son still has a Tag to fill and I think his Deer is going to be another Williston, Vermont Deer.
Yeah, I never saw a lot of deer in the Gibou. I used to hunt Enosburg Mountain from the East Enosburg side. Never saw a lot of sign but some of it was pretty big. I know a guy from Sheldon who used to hunt up there exclusively and he got some big deer. Of course, all he did was hunrt in the fall. I used to live in St. Albans up by the radar site next to Exit 19 off I-89.
Thanksgiving morning my girlfriends son Phillip got this fine 4 Pointer from Williston, Vermont it weighed in 103 lbs. dressed... It's his FiRST year hunting so we're obviously Damn Proud of his first deer... Our taxidermist is Happy too...
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
