Almost got a doe tonight, caught it in the hip with a 20.05. That?s a really slow heavy round. Marketed by Honda under the trade name Odyssey. Luckily it was a glancing blow and only cracked the bumper fascia on the passenger side. Crappy part is, I️ was only 100 yards from my driveway when it happened. Almost made it home without issue.  :facepalm:

Ouch, don't wash it until the insurance adjuster looks at it, that is if you are covered for a deer hit....

Shoot, i have a gravel driveway, i wasn?t planning to wash it for A few more years. Didn?t really even think of getting the insurance involved, it would be covered, just not sure it would be worth it.

How fast were you going to do damage just 100yds from home? At least you didn't run off the road trying to avoid it.

Bumper on a Honda? Probably 600-800 at the body shop... might be worth checking out.

Son and I headed out this morning and he bagged a nice two point black tail buck. An hour or so drive and walk in hunting behind a locked gate. About the only timber company left in the state that doesn't charge to hunt on their land.

I've replaced the one on my wifes 2005.  Check out ebay.  Here is one painted and shipped for cheap.  Its super easy to remove and install.  IIRC two screws in the wheel well and several push clips under the hood along the core support and underneath where the encapsulation panel meets up.

Thanks for the link/pointer on the bumper, never thought to look at eBay for a prepainted part before. I?ll let you know how it works out.    :likebutton:

Ken, you're going to need thermal or nvg and a suppressor by the sounds of that.

Good luck that the big guy steps out for ya.

Well. About 120 miles of nasty nasty trail. Found me some food.

Seen a few hundred through the course of the day. The antlers on his guy had my attention for a few hundred yards through the bush. Taken at just under 300, about two steps after he cleared the trail. Double lunger, and no front shoulders this year. No extra burger!

Congrats Sam! I?ve heard caribou is really good. Quick question. What is the black stuff on the end of your barrel? I?m assuming it?s to keep crud and moisture out?

Yes caribou is good. I prefer it over moose, but not over elk.

You're exactly right in the black stuff.

It's just electrical tape.
A single cover over the muzzle to keep snow dust out.
Multiple wraps to have spare tape for after the shot.
One layer has yet to move the first shot off its mark.

I have used masking tape for that, I always thought the pressure did away with the tape before the bullet ever got to the end of the barrel. Like you say accuracy never suffered from using it for whatever reason.

I've spent quite a few days bow hunting in the same area we went for rifle, where I set up the cameras, a total of 6 covering about 20 square miles (5 by 4). Guess I'm going to have to bribe Ashley to come out here and show me how it's done, because I got skunked, whooped, and beat up again! These deer are making me work for it, but sooner or later.....
anyways, here's some pics of what I was chasing. The first one is the one I had the best chance at. His name is Hustler. Just a typical 3x4:

Nice kitty.

Sure thats not a 4x4? When you see it in the other pic it has a point off the left rear.

So they are there at 0500 and 2200 or are the times wrong? 1/2 before and after sunset/rise?

Times are right...2200=10 pm. 90% of the time they come out between 9pm and midnight. The 3x4 started coming out at 7am so I worked him and still came up short. He's in the last pic, on the left

Find out where they're coming from, and set-up between them and the water.....might cut your time differential enough to get a shot.......then plug the kitty!

Mike, I learn something every outing. The last day of the hunt I realized that I had severally under estimated the distance that the herd I was chasing, was actually traveling, from food to water. Now I believe that number to be 6 miles... about 3 times my original estimate.

Very nice buck.
The winter out here has been so warm that I haven't seen signs of rut til this week, and of course my area's hunt ended on the 15th, the rest of the desert ends this weekend. Got one of the regular bucks on camera that lost half his rack, and another has some large chunks missing (possibly from the cat).

Ouch. He was in a battle of some sort. I?m amazed at how tough and resilient animals can be sometimes.

Went back to the lease today and heard rumors that the 10pt I have the picture of was killed near where I?ve been hunting, over a pile of corn. If true, that would be highly frustrating. Baiting is illegal here in Alabama.

Hope the same outlaws did set the fire to drive him to that pile! That?s the stuff that ruins hunting and sullys it in the eyes of the uninformed/antis

That?s not the case this time. The fire was set last night and the deer was supposedly killed earlier in the week. We just heard about it today. I really hope everything was on the level. If so, I?ll be tickled pink for the guy.

Well last week finally processed my caribou. Boned the carcass out then onto steaks and fast fry.

It's very lean as you can see.

I have also determined that I have a very set point of aim on an animal.
Through and through shots from both directions. The first was a good shot, watched as he exhaled a lot of his blood. Then turned and started for the bush, at which point he got another. Probably 2-2 1/2" exit wounds, aligned one rib apart...I should have taken pic while he was hanging, it was pretty impressive. But you can see the green tarp underneath in any case.



I also reckon I'd hate to be on the receiving end of a 300WM, my favourite hunting gun.
