I haven't heard much from any of you deer hunters out there this year. What's up? Nobody got one yet? Not hunting??
I've seen tons of deer so far but all does or spike horns so far,,,
Well actually I did see 3 "rackers" so far ,,,but all on posted property that I don't have permission to hunt on, so there still running. I saw one 3 so far but the 3rd point was so close to being not a legal point, I passed on it rather than take the chance. And BOY OH BOY,, I really looked very close at that one. That's what I like to target, 125 lb 2 year old,,that's great eating right there mister!!
I had seen 2-3 other racker's, but they were so damn far away that light weight 308 Ruger "all weather Warrior" stainless with a pencil barrel more than likely wouldn't have done the job reliably If I'd had the target 308 M-77 one tough, I wouldn't have hesitated for a second! Vt has a 3 point minimum for buck with 1" minimum length for the points and doe season won't start till December during muzzle loader season.
So at this point I'm still biding my time. I've defiantly been hunting hard this year with just a couple days off due to snow squalls so dense you couldn't see 2' in front of you, that doesn't usually bother me, but where I hunt in the "Big Mountains",,just getting there is the issue, not the hunting conditions so much. That and a couple days I've been in Quasi-Motto mode due to hunting hard the previous day. I've hunted every other day though.
Sooooo,,,,Anybody had any luck yet?
