I Hunt It All ! / WONDERFUL !
« Last post by D45/70 on October 03, 2017, 12:01:43 PM »
Don't you just love when a plan comes together?
Every year we plan a "predator " Hunt For the week between Archery and antelope season.
The Last two years have been trumped by Moose tag, you just cant pass up on a moose tag.
This yeas the D-I-L got a sheep tag but they took care of that on the first day. SOOOO
We did a epic coyote hunt, By boat.



Very primitive river brakes country, for 3 days and 2 nights we never as much as heard another person / vehicle.




Out standing scenery and PRIME coyote habitat.



Set after set ...




Some times we would have multiple dog come in from several directions.


I went in with a big box of 22/250 ( 50) shells and came out with just a few clip fills .
 To bad we did not get every coyote we shot at.




The boy and I where about tied as to hits to misses.
At night we would drift in the river and spot light raccoons back to the camp.
In the dark we did not attempt to land and pick them up Very technical in the current /dark/ and rocks.
Quite a chore in the day light.


We amassed 12 hides and out standing memories, just cant beet a plan then come together like that.
  PS
 This is what it looks like today Glad we hit that right...

Bow Hunting / Hurricane Helped Bow Hunters
« Last post by bohicajuan on September 21, 2017, 07:45:24 PM »
For about the 4th year in a row, bow season snuck up on me and I wasn't ready. But this year it was crazy. Opening weekend was September 9th and Hurricane Irma was beating up Florida and coming our way. I really hadn't planned on going hunting, but by Thursday I was seriously reconsidering.

A friend of mine that works for the Georgia Department of Transportation sent me an app that I could connect to our computers and see all the Interstates throughout Georgia. Looking at I-75, I-85, I-95 and I-20 you would have thought that Georgia was being invaded by Florida. Bumper to bumper traffic, mostly going north but some heading east and west.

All that traffic convinced me to stay home. As it turned out I was called in to work that weekend because of the number of people that we were now classifying as "refugees" :roll: :roll: :tickedoff :tickedoff

I don't think there was anybody left in Florida!

But the bizarre part was that with the approaching storm, it caused the barometer to go cray and this caused the deer to start moving and pretty much keep moving. 5 members of my club made it down to hunt. 5 guys using bows killed 7 deer in two days! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

That has never happened before. One was a nice 8 point and another was a real wide racked 6 point. The rest were does, but they saw and shot at but missed two more deer and saw more that were just out of bow range.

They said the deer cooler we use to process the deer was busier than it had ever been before on an opening weekend of bow season.

Typical of my luck, I was stuck here having to babysit people!! :knuppel2 :knuppel2 :tickedoff :tickedoff

I still haven't gone hunting and won't make it this week either because of prior commitments, but even if I went knowing my luck I wouldn't see a thing! :'( :'( :'(

I Hunt It All ! / Sheep , gumbo and a good story

Just Minutes before end of shooting a large band of sheep walks up out of the brakes.

The D-I-L and son where in the right spot after most the day boating, hunting ,glassing , and scoping.
She had to make a choice in a mater of minutes leveled the new Kimber mountain assent 6.5 Creedmoor sights and shoot.
Just a bit over 200 yards and two ridges away.
One shot and it was over or just to begin.
She had made a mistake and only had her Rx sunglasses and it was about to get BLACK.
The boy RAN over and dressed the sheep as she started to feel her way back to the boat.
We have not had any rain for 3 months till this weekend.
3" in the brakes sucks. She got back to the boat about the same time as the boy both covered in wonderful Montana gumbo.
a 7 mile boat trip in total darkness in the boat and only able to "See" by the GPS. The hit the sack shortly after Ten.
Very little sleep, the coyotes where running wild and making more noise then a Boeing 747  trying to crash land in there camp all night long. First light and they where heading back up river to do some packing. They got there and were tickled the coyotes did not find the EWE. They strapped in on whole and headed out, taking turns packing. She is one tuff cookie and did a lot of the packing.

There another great story and head on her wall
