Hello boy's back from Deer hunting Gun Season here in WI as for the most part the numbers are down across the state. I saw 2 bucks and 3 does in 20+ hours of hunting and put a bullet in the head of 1 of the does. Some clown shot her leg off so I finished her. The wolves and the coyotes are pushing everything out of my area I might hunt somewhere else next weekend.

DanII Sorry to hear about the accident hope it all works out for you.

Al great pics looks like you had fun. Can't wait to see the mount.

Fran I most likely not be able to make it down there for the 2nd gun season. It's getting busy here.Holiday's suck in my world. If it wasn't for my daughter I would stay up north for the hole thing.

Every one have a great Thanksgiving and I will be around until thursday night after that back up.

Al - great pics man. Nice buck too. Whalin' em with the slugger sure isn't easy. You really have turned the corner as a big buck hunter. That's some tough country you're hunting, and you're getting it done consistently. Kudos man.

Nice yote too! Good shooting! Those mutts aren't easy to hit. They seem to never stand still, especially when the pressure is on.


Danno - Bummer on the lack of deer sightings. Things are cyclical, ya know? Hopefully next year will be better. Good thing you tagged out when you did.


Dukie - any more deer tags for you? Or any planned videotaping?


I'm putting in 60 hours at the office this week, then I'm off for 4 days - heading to deer camp. I can't wait to get up in the snowpack and put some mileage on the shoeleather express. Nothing but me and the Weatherby... I'm pretty much going to be aimlessly hiking through the mountains, b/c all I have is a doe tag - and I have no interest in shooting a doe. I'm hoping to luck into a coyote or run a big buck out to one of the guys from camp. I can move some deer when I put my mind to it. LOL I'd love to see my dad smash a nice buck. He's not a serious hunter by any stretch of the imagination, but he truly does love it when he gets one.

Quick.. I've been video taping JZ lately. Been out only twice myself looking for a doe.

Once these gunners are done in WI.. I'll be hitting it hard for a doe there to earn a tag and seek out another buck. But with less than 4 weeks from when there gun season ends til the bow season is over.. who knows how that will pan out. And of course on public no less.

But I'll give it all during that time.

One more gents.. and we'll be the dynasty I knew we could be. Kudos to all of you.

You guys really are some fantastic deer hunters. Unbelievable.

Fran you are right about it being cyclical but with the corn out I might have a chance of tagging 1 this weekend. Your dad sounds like mine he loves being out there and doesn't shoot much but when he does lock up the women and children.

Mike I'll see about putting you on a doe at the new land I get to hunt. My cousin took a 10 out of there last night, he thought it was bigger and 1 side was busted up but there hasn't been a doe shot out there this year. After gun season we can take a look at it.

Good luck Marty,DanII,AD

Mike - so if you shoot a doe this year, could you in theory wait until next year to get your buck tag? Or how do they do that?
