    Primary Rifle and Back-Up Rifle

    Caliber wise an -06 will do the same a .308 will. It will knock any north American game animal down. Gun wise the simpler the better in terms of reliability. A hammer fired gun can't get much more reliable. Autoloading it would have to be something like an AR. If i were doing an AR I think 6.5 creedmoor would be the ticket.

    Blew it tonight

    Thanks, she was beyond excited. We have taken some real nice deer off this property. Sorry but she's not single and the land is spoken for. Haha Thanks, sad part is the picture doesn't do it justice. The bases were bigger around than redbull cans or a touch bigger than bud light cans. Truly impressive deer. I passed him 2 years ago during rifle in the same area. We figired the rough score to be 147" with 23" inside spread. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Showing a DEC officer a gut pile?

    So the gut pile behind my house from a deer harvested in another area can get me in trouble for baiting? Seems like a stretch of that's all the evidence they have and presumption of guilt won't bring charges. In case you all have forgotten "innocent until proven guilty". The proof needs to be rock solid not what is in the gut pile or stuck in its teeth. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Or a in food plot or 100. I know if i was in that area and there wasn't any corn fields within miles my number one food plot would be corn. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  5. Dont really need kill plots as there isn't much around for deer to graze after they turned the alfalfa field to corn and harvested it early bow. Looking at some decent sized plots for grazing and lots of hinge cut maples and aspen around the plots. Yeah I've really been considering the WI stuff they have a buy 2 get 1 right now on the perennial clover mix. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  6. 40 acres total plots were going to vary but i didntwant to go much bigger than 40 yards x 40 yards. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Sister managed to seal the deal on the big 8 i saw when big bro pushed an area he had a hinkering he might be. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  8. My plan for the one plot was going to be 50/50 clover/brassica my other 50/50 corn/soybean. Im going to try some diversion ditches to get some water away from the plots as it comes down off the hill. Unfortunately i have a couple springs on the property that dont help the situation.

    Shot through the neck.

    I like to put it centered up down and left right so if you're 2"any direction you have a dead deer. This is a little gruesome but 80 yards with the .243 95gr. Ballistic tip hit spine on exit. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  10. Looking ahead to this spring I need some food plots. No doubt in my mind part will be a mix of brassicas the other part has me wondering. I have wet soil and this clover is supposed to do well in wet soil. I dont have standing water but soggy with the amount of rain we got this summer. Any other suggestions I'll take them. Alfalfa is out of th question it will end up getting a root fungus and die off. White clover doesnt like wet feet so that wont work. I want it to be a perennial plot. I've decided to put in 2 bigger plots instead of 3 smaller ones. My plan is to hinge cut around the plots to allow easy access only in certian areas also to allow more light into the areas.

    Shot through the neck.

    Shot almost all my gun deer in the neck all have ranged where but from a .243 to 20 gauge. None took another step after the shot. Shot a doe this weekend in the boiler room went 70 yards and piled. Below is the blood trail. Easy to track and next to no meat ruined. First deer i shot in the vitals since i was 16 when i got my first 6 point with the old 20 gauge. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Connected with a decent 2.5 yr old doe at 2pm. The wife's .243 really puts a hole in them. Went 60 and crashed, worse part about it was when I dragged her out at dark there was a buck all rutted up upwind of me. He smelled to high heaven and before i knew what was going on he was gone couldnt even get a good look but I'm pretty sure he is the giant I've been after. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  13. In 8f heard 37 shots so far first was at 6:32 on the dot. Big spike came up out 16" wide smaller body. 2 doe fawn button buck and 2 doe. Really want a big doe. Up to 40 shots. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    What do you do to control your Buck Fever?

    For me it's tougher during bow than gun. I think its because they have to get a lot closer and when that happens it's harder to control your adrenaline. Your movements and the shot has to be more calculated putting more pressure on yourself. Either way i love it. The adrenaline rush is unreal not much else can get me going like a big buck 20 yards from my stand. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
