    Amazing day. Out for a hunt with just my son. We prepped and got ready to go, when we got to the field, we split up. I headed toward my chosen stand, and he toward his about 3/4 mile apart. I stopped and watched him disappear into the treeline.

    Neither of us got a shot, but we got back and shared stories. I think that I actually did it, I raised a hunter.
    One of those Dad days to remember.

    Well heck! I was walking out with a crossbow, just note that I am a real archer and hate crossbows, sometimes crossbows range and stealth make them useful.

    100 yards out from camp on a 1/2 mile hike to a stand, I see a deer standing off my path. So, despite my disbelief in stalking, I walked a 75 yard, 180deg circle around the deer and sure as heck, it was still standing there.

    I shot and it sounded like a bone hit. I waited 15 minutes. First 100 yards no blood. When it went into the hills, it started bleeding. I blood trailed it in the dark for 3 hours until the trail went cold.

    Damn near was the death of me.

    Turns out that a couple days later, the little spike crossed my trail cam with a slight limp. I will see him later in the season.

    It has come time to pull the smoke pole (muzzleloader) out of the locker and take her afield. Note that I am such a cheap guy that I am still hunting with a ML that cost less than a sports car tire.

    So, over the weekend, I slip into the woods to a ground stand that has been perennially solid with shooting lanes from 20yds-120yds.

    The squirrels had a party around me, leading me to report to the family that the theme song for the day was:
    (Think Motley Crew) SQUIRRELS, SQUIRRELS SQUIRRELS!

    I traded chips in the trailcams on the way out, and it turns out that I missed a nice buck by 20 mins.

    That's why we call it hunting.

    Looks like this upcoming weekend is the start of our gun hunting season here in the Commonwealth.

    Since I harvested one last week, I think I will take the pistol only with me.

    "what kinda pistol ya shootin MM??? Well, I'm glad yall asked, I'm takin' my Ruger Super Redhawk .44 w/ a 2x Leupold. It's a pie plater at 100 all day long. Should be fun. Hopefully I can hear next week.

    Congrats on the Doe! Getting meat in the freezer does change one's hunting priorities, I have yet to experience that this year.

    I get to move to centerfire next week, should be fun.

    As posted elsewhere:

    With my not so nice $125 ML, I went afield a few days ago. I hiked up-mountain where I have this ground stand spot that is in a ditch on a ridge. I got to the stand, set up a seat, put on my cold weather gear... I looked up and there was a spike buck standing 113 yards out.
    Then in walks this whitetail buck that looks the size of a small elk.
    I was not even zipped up, sitting, or even have my gloves on.
    I had them both dead to rights for 20 minutes, one hitch, they were in a direct line line with the one and only house anywhere near me. It was about a 25deg down angle into a saddle, but safety is everything.
    I waited until things were good and dark and snuck out with a red light, hoping not to spook out the buck.
    Later I picked up the local trail cam and there he was in all his 10pt glory. Largest whitetail I have ever seen in that area.
    I hope to see him again.

    O wow! You never heard of Carbon Fiber?

    I shot them scuds back in the day. I got a bunch of them at this place that was going out of business. To this day, my arrows are 615 grains.

    Back in the day, I could put 3 of them into a small coffee cup at 35 yards. I had these 8-sided solid broadheads. Razorback, I think?
