Thanks for the update.
It's been a real light year for the birds...
Nothing the 1st weekend except 4 woodcock directly in front, of course in the wide open, and the season didn't begin until Oct. 6th, the day after I left to go home - crap!

Then only had one shot the next weekend with 2 1/2 days in the field - ugg! (Forgot my camera @ camp)

This weekend was a little better, but still lacking flushes compared to years past??!!

Contest Update:

The contest will end January 4, 2009. This is subject to change, if you have a season that runs past January 4 please PM me and I will change it. Also if anyone feels a different species of bird needs to be added to the points list, please inform me and I willadd the bird.

GOOD LUCK
Quail seaon in Texas runs until February 22nd. Not sure if you want to keep it running that long though. Last year I didn't do much quail hunting but not sure about other folks.

So much for things happening around here! I thought I was going to get shut out for a while tonight. Shot my first bird about 5 minutes before sunset.

Ended up with 5 birds. I shot 6 but had to come back to the house for a bit with a bird on the ground. I marked the area with my hat, and went back out after dark to try to find it. My rottweiler found it, but ate it before I realized what was going on in the dark. [&:]

I hope she didn't learn something new, she ate the entire thing in one big swallow. I'm going to have to start bringing treats out there with me to reward her for bringing a bird back to me.

Here's my 3 legged 1/2 Rott 1/2 Brittnay Spaniel with the birds this time.

Well it was a BEAUTIFUL evening.

Saw a very nice mature whitetail buck and doe as I turned the corner on the way to the house so that was neat (they were on my property about 400 yards from the house with 2+ hours of daylight left - I think the rut must be starting).

Wind was very calm for around here, about 60 degrees, not a cloud in the sky....

As the sun went down I saw the first ever pheasant on my property, a huge rooster that flew into my CRP grass from my sorghum that I planted this spring.

Busted a covey of quail walking over to one of my dove spots... (quail season starts in 2 days!)

And shot a whopping 2 doves! And it wasn't because I was a bad shot they just weren't flying. We had a good cold front come through yesterday and that usually brings in a new batch of doves, but I guess ours went south and there weren't any more coming in from the north to take their place.

Oh well, it was a beautiful evening regardless.

RE: Upland Contest Teams and Scoring Sheet
 
Another beautiful day but no deer or pheasants this morning. Only found 1 covey of about a dozen quail on the property around the house this morning. I shot 2 of them and that will probably be the extent of my quail hunting around the house unless I see more quail than that. Late this summer I had 2 good coveys hanging out, but not sure where the other one went. The cotton fields haven't been stripped yet so they may be hanging out in them.

Dove season goes 1 more week but there aren't may dove hanging out around here right now. I think we need another hard cold front to bring the rest down but hunting season will be over by then. I may do a little quail hunting down on my Fisher county property, I have 3 or 4 good coveys down there, but I hate to quail hunt during deer season and that's about my only option. Maybe I'll get a big buck down early and be able to spend some time on quail. I may get to go pheasant hunting on opening morning but not sure on that either, so this may be about my total for the season. We'll see.

Here's the tally for today, 2 dove and 2 quail.

yup, we're on a roll now npaden. Still another month and a half left in the season here too.

Nice buck by the way. It's pretty cool to see how much the deer change from season to season like Double wide did isn't it?

npaden 11-10-2008 02:44 PM

RE: Upland Contest Teams and Scoring Sheet
 
Thanks.

It was pretty amazing to see how much he regressed this year from last year. It wasn't like he was a B&C buck last year, but I think he would have been a solid 135" - 140" with an inside spread of 20+". His bases are HUGE and I can only imagine what he looked like in his prime. I think he was probably already on the downhill slide last year. I've seen 4 other good bucks that would all be shooters next year if they make it through the season. One of them will be 5 1/2 next year and has shown the ability to put on some nice junk in previous years so if he makes it through another year I will be SERIOUSLY after him!

These 2 pictures show the difference the best to me.

Last year's antlers:


This year when he was just about done growing his antlers:


I was still very happy to take him, he was #1 on my hit list.

Another interesting thing is the buck in both of those pictures with him is the buck I nicknamed "Stickers". He was #2 on my hit list. Hopefully he will fall into the same habits that Doublewide had and will get ground checked by me next year! :D

He had a nice sticker coming off his G2 this year but if fell off!!

Here he was with the nice sticker coming off his left G2:


And here he is after the sticker dropped off:


He is still on the upward swing on antler growth though, here is a picture of him last year (this is the first picture I got of him and when I nicknamed him stickers), note how much his mass has increased this year over last year.


Okay, sorry for hijacking the score thread. I just think it is very interesting to see the antler growth sequences documented and thought I would share.

Okay, struck out pig hunting but spent a few minutes quail hunting on my property down in fisher county. 2 shots and 2 quail.
