Sometimes it's best to blend in with the herd.



This calico hoglet stood out amongst all the others. So she got nailed.

Talley one more for the Merkel!

Firearm deer season opened this last weekend, here in Indiana. I used my CVA Scout .44 mag/leverevolution ammo, to score on 2 nice does, the last 3 days.







The pics aren't the best, but you get the idea.

My son scored a small buck on the third day, with his handi rifle .44 mag/LE ammo, also.




All my hunting this fall[squirrels/deer] has been with single shot rifles.

What are those deer eating?!! Hell, even the does look bigger than my 10-pointer!

Brickie, we grow em big here in NW Indiana. grin My heaviest buck ever weighed 226 lbs. field dressed, and my biggest doe was 140 lbs. field dressed. Add 30-35% and you get real close to the live weight.

The heaviest deer ever killed in the county I hunt in southeast Oklahoma was a little over 170 pounds; my heaviest was a little under 130 pounds.

I don't know what my 2012 single shot take buck weighed, but I do know I am 5'9" 185 pounds, and I could only lift one end.

To get him into the vehicle, I had to put a rope around his neck and winch him in.

92 yds, broadside & clueless ain't hard but I didn't scorn her for bein' easy.
