Head was gone, so I kinda wonder if somebody poached it for the head. Also thought it coulda been a roadkill, though there was no evidence of one being hit in the road. That said, they don't tend to fillet open like a deer when hit by a car, so it coulda been a roadkill that either ran a short distance and died, or was drug off the road by someone. Still sad to see such good meat go to waste
I've seen a ton of bears hit by cars that weren't messed up looking at all. Doesn't explain the head being gone though. Maybe it got hit and someone cut the head off. Not technically poached but still illegal as hell.

Reminds me of a story that a female driver hit & killed a bear. The tale teller pulls besides accident & talking to driver who did call police to report it.
A pickup truck appeared w/two guys slowed down, parked, got out, both carried bear into bed & split before one can say Jesus Christmas-

Little 7 point taken at 35 yards with Glock 40 in SC.

Got my 2017 buck back from my taxidermist buddy this past weekend. My dad insisted that we hang it at his house for some reason. 10 point 21.25" spread. I scored it roughly at 150 5/8.

Its the best one shot at our place so far (which is the 60 acres behind my parents house in SE Texas).

My son Zach's first elk. 550 yard shot and he nailed him. Grant County, Oregon. John Cole's Hunter's Rendezvous Outfitter and Guide Service.

This is the first time I've been on a guided hunt. It was a top notch operation and they killed bulls every day we were there. Good times.

7 days into the fur season, and only got 12 coons. Too much rain here in PA, and the fox have been alluding me. I'll post pics if I feel like dicking with Tapatalk.

Got a 2 yo cow elk yesterday. Tags are filled for the year, it's been good. One shot from the 7mm 162gr eld-x was all she wrote. The 5 mile one way pack out sucked balls though.

Very nice! We got back from CO Thursday night. Spent 4 days looking for elk, with no fresh sign. The unit we were in was really dry.

2018 - 2019 Hunting, fishing, trapping, killin' & grillin' thread

my 20 yr old son bagged this guy yesterday

First time hes ever hunted
And with a gun hes never shot before

If he were still alive Im sure grand dad would be proud that his only grandchild killed a 150 lb buck on the first day of his first ever hunting trip , with granddads favorite .280

For yall out west , a 150 lb 7 pointer is pretty big in Georgia

A few pics from our recent elk trip to CO. No elk, but did catch a few trout on my fly rod.



Small Mulie buck that was with a couple of does.

Popped my first deer of the season Saturday 11-3-18 at 9:25 at 10 yards using a CVA .50 backed with 100gr of white hots.

I was sitting in the stand when I heard a deer coming up the creek from 100 yards away. He (6pt) was coming with a purpose and grunting up a storm. He was down below my stand on a logging road and came up the point to my right. Instead of coming up on the ledge where I was he went around the point where they bed down. I figured he might run something to me and sure enough 30 minutes later he did. It was a good day to be in the woods.

Double lung and took out the back end of the heart. She went all of 40-50 yards and crashed.

Did some population control. Another dozen or so scattered through the brush and i can only john wayne the 30-30 so fast.

This sow mustve been in the protein feeders, had a good 1/4" or better of fat on her.



The second one behind her was nasty and was nursing. Fleas, ticks, missing hair, lumps under the skin... she got thrown back in the brush after i cleaned the other sow. Im not one to waste meat, but it wasnt worth the trouble.

My son tagged out over the weekend.
The 8 point was Sat morning at 250 yards, he just crossed through a gate from the neighbors place and just before he entered the trees he stopped, Nick let it fly, I was watching through my rifle and saw the red mist, deer still went about 30 yards but the blood trail was easy to follow. Shot hit just behind the right shoulder and exited a little further back on the other side, exit wound was about the size of a silver dollar.

The other buck was Sun morning 180 yards and walking across an open patch, that shot was not as good, high in the spine, exit wound was very small at the top of the back. It had a 2.5" spike on the left side and a 1" long odd shaped spike on the right side, I was happy to get his genetics off the property.

Is this a 5x1? Hard to tell from the perspective of the photo...

FIL and I knocked out a two man limit this AM. Probably caught more like 25 total when you include undersized fish.
