Wish me luck and safe passage. I will be out 2 hours or more before shooting time. I know right where I want to be. I might get lucky too and see some other game. Lots of **** and squirrels around.

I ground hunt because my legs wont let me climb in a climbing stand and i am too lazy to tote my new ladder stand out. I think I am going to save it for coyote hunting later on.

I will be using my new CVA Wolf .50 cal. w/340 gr. lead (home cast) hollow points and sabot combo, and 100 gr Pyrodex Select.

That is, unless the buck gets close enough so I can pop him with my 45 ACP.

I think I will salt the hollow point so if I have to take a real long shot I won't have to worry about spoilage before I get to the Buck.:cool:

Wishing you much success. Take plenty of pictures.
Your CVA Wolf should do the job nicely.

Hope this makes you jealous ?
You look many years younger in that pic Bucky.
By the way, who shot them, Lynne?

:D

Thanks greyhawk,
hoping for some much needed winter meat. I will try to get pics but my phone sucks for pictures and my camera is a bit bulky. Maybe if I can get one hung up...

Dead deer of course
now you let the secret out
Darn !:)
Bucky,
I know from what you told me you can't hit, or even find a Sambar deer so I just wondered if these were something else, maybe baby Sambar shot by someone else, while you were doin dishes or were otherwise somehow preoccupied. (sorry, couldn't resist)

Love it Mate !

I keep telling Lyn to stop "texting the bloody Deer", to tell them that I am on the way up.
One reply I have gotten back is that " can't you find a deer, that is "dumber" than you are".

Looks like my passengers for tomorrow cancelled so...maybe I will have a shot at a one day hunt. Then 2 days work and finally a 2 day weekend. Weather looks like it may be ok.

I have a perfectly good pop up ground blind and I keep forgetting to get it out of storage. I may have a wet butt tomorrow, but that's ok as long as my boobies don't get wet.:D

Sunday is the last day of the Iowa early ML deer season. I tried to get another tag for a later season but all the good tags are taken and the counties that have tags are either a long way off or have a low deer count.

I made it out Wednesday and Saturday. Didn't see anything except some other hunters. They were deerless too...except for one fella. Smallish doe from what I could see. But right about now that even looks really good. Hopefully I can get out tomorrow. Hopefully I can get out ahead of the drivers. Only problem is I will have to shag my lazy hiney out of the rack early and I am gettin used to sleeping. O well... I have had to do worse things. But I can't remember what they were.
