Default Gun Deer Only

It appears that the rifle or shotgun deer seasons are starting about now for most in this forum.

Let's use this thread to post pics of your deer taken by gun hunting. No bowhunted bucks (since you guys get a season that lasts for months and get first shot at all the big ones).

Maybe someone in here will get some nice ones!

Good luck!!


It would be neat if the moderator could keep this at the top (sticky) for a month or so.

Well, he is no wall hanger but I have hunted for just over 6 weeks with bow, blackpowder and now rifle and haven't even had a shot. It was drizzling rain and a little windy last night but I decided to go to the blind anyway. Just before dark this guy showed up. I just did get a shot at him and dropped him in his tracks. Now I have to shoot a doe before I can shoot another buck and I will hold out for a better buck. Plus I am helping my wife get her first deer this year. She actually missed this deer the day before with her blackpowder rifle.

Gun: Browning BAR 30-06
Bullet: Federal Premium 165 gr Nosler Partition

Gun season opens this weekend in Oklahoma so hopefully I can give this thread a bump before long.

Took this 8 point yesterday morning just before 8 am. Was happy to break in the new rifle on such a beautiful buck.

Default Nice Buck

Where did you take this buck? What county? I am guessing the age to be about 3 1/2 yrs old.

Buck was taken in Henry county. I'm guessing a 3.5 or 4.5 year old. I can tell you one thing, I'm thankful for a buddy who came by and helped me drag him out!
