2011 Hunting season pictures, let's see em

Thought maybe we could start a picture and story thread for this hunting season?

Il start.

Friday afternoon I drove out to the Tyler area with a couple of my buddies to hunt some property one of them owns. I Didnt expect much so I was in the stand with my bow, and some sailor Jerry's....entertaining myself as best as I could. Nothing for 3 hours and then this guy comes up. He was downwind of me and I swear he wanted a couple of sips of the rum by the way he made a line straight to me. I didn't have to wait long for a decent shot. He ended up broadside to me at about 25 yards and I was about to squeeze off when he turned to face me. I knew I could land one a bit behind his head and hit good vitals so I took the shot. He did not go far.

Let's see/read about yours

Had a good shot at a 3-4 year old wide 10 point 140 to 150 first 30 minutes of shooting light Sat morning. Didn't take the shot, kicking myself. Wasn't an absolute monster, but he was wall worthy for sure. Have a lot of bucks on my cameras over the last month and I know there are some bigger ones in the area. Didn't see another buck the rest of Saturday, Sunday, or Monday.

Last weekend I shot two hogs with one shot. Last night I was spotlighting by myself and shot a hog and ended up shooting him further back than I planned, and there was another hog right behind him that i couldn't see. When I drove up to the feeder I saw the one I shot crawling off to the right of the feeder so I walk torwards him with the flashlight shining with my glock 19 to put him away and another hog was hit crawling off to the left dragging his hind legs too. Pure blind luck, two with one shot again. Put a 124 grain hydroshock in the ear of both of them. Both hogs were gut shot, the second on had his guts blown out. Kinda messy cleaning them but they cleaned up ok. I can't say enough about sierra gameking bullets, shooting a 168 gr moly coated hollow point boattail. 2 weeks in a row, completely through 2 hogs.

After the hogs, my buddy and I had a run in with a rattlesnake. We had changed out of our evening hunting gear showered and cleaned up and were not really planning on going out but we decided to check the game cameras to see if there was any buck movement. I broke the cardinal rule of hunting south texas by being lazy and almost paid for it. Went out wearing shorts tshirt and flip flops and left my snake books at the ranch house to air out. We drive the ranch without the lights on the gator as we know all the senderos, roads and trails so well. Pulled up next to a game camera and got out of the gator and almost stepped on a rattlesnake. 2 steps out of the gator and we can see a shape next to us and he started rattling. Left the flashlight in the gator, not sure where to step or what direction to step or if there were more. Needless to say, I will not leave the house without snake boots again......period. All in all a great opening weekned. No buck, but they are there.

Nice story TX. Thanks for that. I have a friend that killed two hogs with one shot last year....I think it was with a .25 06. I wear my "high" boots when out in the woods because of that reason.....damn snakes....you just don't seem or hear em till they move. The ones that take off real fast tend to make me holler cause its f'n scary.

Was out meat hunting with my T/C Encore in .480 Ruger the other day. Shot him with one of my handloads using a 325 grain Rainer HP.

Deer #3 of the season. This one was cool, because I was in stand for 10 minutes before I shot him.
I moved from one morning stand to one of my afternoon stands at 1:08. Just hooked in my safety harness, and saw this buck walking in the pines on the ridge about 200 yds away. I tipped my bleat can and in he came for an easy shot. Never knew what hit him.

I don't need a score to appreciate that buck. Just the mass alone is something else. That's one to be proud of.
