i'll shoot at an 8 w/a bow, but i dont mind letting them walk away at all. having any deer walk under your stand is a victory in itself.

Depends if I'm on public or private land. Public land, I'll kill just about the first deer I see. The private land I hunt is managed, so we let the basket racks go. We shoot mainly does or bucks over 5 years old. I personally can't tell how old a deer is by looking at it from a tree. I just always tell the others;

"I had to let several pass because they were too young. So I took this doe instead."

I took a doe the first weekend. Now I'm concentrating on the soon to be migrating flocks of waterfowl.

I am going to try and get a fox kill with a bow on film this year though. I shot 3 last year and one of them was 15 yards away. Bad thing about capturing it on film is that it puts more people out there and those little carniverous buggers have spome excellent noses.

Well that sounds like a nice little boat, not that I know much about them.
My Gear-Head Uncleís got one thatís a little different. Itís an old 22í closed bow with a Ford 460 cid engine that heís bored and stroked out to around 600 cubes.
He canít really get on it out of the hole because itís a jet drive and the drive doesnít have the capacity to handle the big blocks torque (the drive needs a bigger capacity inlet and heavier duty impeller).
Once water is flowing through the jet drive though, he can lay into the throttle and almost throw a grown adult out of their seat. He likes messing with jet skiers with it; they never expect a boat to be keeping up with them.

BigVE,

2 questions for you. 1. Where did you hit the doe? Could you tell or was the body too mangled? 2. What type of broadheads are you using.

Iowanian,

The makers of the tri-tronics shock collars have a book about retriever training. Half the book is about collar training, but the other half is about regular training for hunting purposes. The non-collar portion is very good.

If you want an obedient dog in the field you have to drill the basic obedience at home. By "drill" I don't mean to connote a heavy hand, but just that you have to sometimes keep reverting back to the basics.

Sadly, I've let EVERYTHING go by last year and will probably do so again this year too as what time I do have to hunt will be used to (hopefully) finish up the training on my pair of English Pointer bird dogs.

However, when I DO hunt deer, I typically will pass on the smaller racked deer. If it is late in the season I will usually go ahead and stick an 8 pointer if he has decent mass and spread, but would pass on him early in the season.

Man, Patterdales are vicious little killers. Get a bunch of them and kill as many varmits as you can. Varmits eat everything from pheasants, quail and ducks and all their eggs. Once winter starts and our bird seasons close, I can be found calling in coyotes and fox. If you see a racoon, opposum, skunk or cat in the ditch....shoot the fugger.

You people suck. Passing up on 8 pointers? The deer in N.J. aren't managed for trophy sized antlers. They tend to prefer the quantity over quality method.

Whenever I "pass" on deer it always comes back to haunt me.

The only other time I pass on deer is before I run it over in my F250.

The last time I went deer hunting, it was first day of rifle season and I saw a doe walk through my firing lane about 100 yards away. I passed on her thinking I had another two weeks of season left. That was a mistake, didnít get another chance at a shot.

Do you know any kennels in MO.

I already hunt hogs in west OK w/ my pitbulls.

Looks something like this with Plotts as baydogs and pits as catch dogs step in with a knife fun and dangerous at once like fishing sharks in the water.

You haven't seen how big they get out here in KS I take it.:-)


I do know about the regrets on passing up deer. There have been times I have passed on one early in the season and never got so much as another shot all season.

Man, you boys are crazy. I'd love to ry that sometime. I'm ordering that video.

What do you all feed your catch dogs? Pigs, cats?

I know some kennels in Mo and KS but all of the retriever/bird dog variety.
