56 Day Waiting Period

    It had been fifty-six days since the first day of deer season in Oklahoma. The magic of peak rut had passed. The woods had been full of eager rifle hunters for the past 3 days. Mature bucks were on high alert and I still had my buck tag in my pocket. For the most part all I had seen to this point was smaller buck.  I held out hope even though I failed to connect with a nice buck the year before. This year had to be different.

Oklahoma Bowhunting Grand Slam

The first week of October was finally here. The first three days were spent in my favorite stand watching 3 raccoons in which I had named Larry, Curly, and Moe. The mother raccoon was slightly bigger than the two younger ones, and seemed curious to every movement surrounding them. The days here in eastern Oklahoma in October were still in the 80's with mosquitoes buzzing everywhere. I was wondering if it was still too hot to hunt and questioned myself again over and over.
Oklahoma Deer Hunt Success
Jimmy Barnes
I was on a 4 day deer hunt near Holdenville Oklahoma about 90 miles south of Oklahoma City (private land). I saw several deer on that hunt but it was on my 3rd afternoon when I saw this nice 8 pointer trailing a doe, and as I turned around retrieving my rifle for a shot, the buck went in behind some small trees and then straight out of my sight. Although the exciting moment faded fast I felt sure that deer would be in that same general area the next day so I went back the following morning prior to daybreak.
Oklahoma 10 Point Deer
Gary L. Hines
Hunting from a small hang-on type stand in an oak flat near a deep brushy ravine I bagged the biggest deer of my life. On Sunday morning of the opening weekend of the Oklahoma gun season I was hunting a spot in Noble County that I had hunted for 3 years previous without any success.

I called this 8 point in with my M.A.D. growl call and he came in a hurry. I harvested this deer in Carter County Oklahoma. He scored 120 class.

My First 25th Hour Black Bear
Granville E. Moad Jr. "Mac"
I left my house already tired but excited at 4:00 am Saturday the 20th of September, headed for my buddy Brad's house in Booneville, Arkansas. I couldn't sleep the night before so I spent most of the night watching Buckmaster deer hunting videos. The 4-wheeler, the climbing stand, the bow, and backpack was loaded in the truck and as my drive ahead was about 1 1/2 hours, I kept thinking "today feels good."
