Got a nice 6 point with the muzzeloader, he had 4 points on one side and 2 on the other. Got 3 does, one with bow, one with muzzeloader, one with rifle. With some of the places that I hunted this year 4 deer didn't put a dent in them.
BigE, no pics to post, I don't have a scanner. As soon as I get a chance I am going to try and get some pics on, I think my little cousin has a scanner and can show me how to post pics, since I am lucky I know how to turn the computer on, posting a pic will require a little help. Stay tuned.
Well I wished I had a good old "Big Buck" story to tell you all but fact is I have scored a fat ZERO so far with a little less than 2 weeks left in the season.

I also dont have very much time to get to the woods that I usually like to have. Oh well thats why they call it huntin I reckon. Odds are looking pretty good right now that I am gonna get skunked this year......that would be the first time in 20 years that I haven't killed anything.
I have done everything possible to get my kids involved in hunting. Every time out whether it be scouting, camping or during the actual hunt, I will challenge them to find their way back without using any electronics (GPS). Also without a compass. They know by now that I am going to challenge one of them, so right off the bat when leaving our vehicle or camp they will start picking out land marks to help them out. Makes me and them feel confident that if we were to somehow separate that they...
