It's been a very slow year here in Western MA this shotgun season. I've heard of some nice bucks being taken... but not too many.
I didn't get a nice buck, but I did get a 105lb doe yesterday afternoon. No bragging rights there, but she sure will taste good. We can't be picky with the way this season is going.

Better than being empty handed BigE. Besides it sounds like you are more into the bears anyway.

I enjoy the bears, but i'd much rather fill the freezer with venison than bear. I cooked up some of that doe yesterday and she was great...

Can beat the young does for taste! Congratulations! Besides you are just letting that buck with your name on it get a little bigger!

Well, I just took a nice doe yesterday with the muzzleloader. She'll be tastey as well. Now I've used both of my doe tags, so I have to hunt for horns for the last week. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Well boys, you were all right... I did get my buck! I shot a beautiful 8 pointer on Saturday with the muzzloader. He just about had a 16" spread. He didn't weigh very much, and when we caped him out we found broadhead and 6" of arrow in his backstrap. Oh well, my first big racker. He's going on the wall. I'll post some pics as soon as i get them downloaded.
I hope everyone else is having good luck.
