    Well since deer season is coming to an end and the New Year is nipping at our heels I figured I would bring back a few memories of this past bow season. I know these bucks aint monsters to most people but they got me excited and I thank the Lord every day for the trophies he has blessed me with! I harvested my first buck Sept. 10th. It was a 48 yd. shot through both lungs. The second buck was at 32 yds. and it was a heart shot. I watched him fall in sight. They were both 8 pointers. Now its on to Duck hunting as long as the weather cooperates and we get a few to shoot at. Good Luck to all and to all a good night!! LOL.

    Two Woodies in the PM
    Man it was a crazy hunt this eve. Figured I would slip in there and probly jump at least a wood duck. Got through the swamp I was at almost to the end of it before I finally seen a duck. It was swimming away from my position. So I slipped towards it, fell in hole, got soaked and cold, finally got in range and jumped 5 or 6. Shot down 2 drakes so it was a good quick hunt although I got wet. Oh well, Ive been down that road before duck hunting. Hell one time I had to wade out in a swamp in middle of winter to get 4 ducks I shot one eve in my undies. LOL. Talk about schriveled. How ever you spell that word anyways LOL. It was pretty pathetic to say the least and freezing!! Gotta luv hunting!!

    Combo Hunt!
    Nice combo duck and coon hunt GT! If you want one of those ducks mounted, I can make it look like its still dead LOL. Ive mounted a few but it takes a lot of time and patience to master the art of Taxidermy. I know a guy who does a great job on em. Probly one of the best around. He used to work with Dick Idol. He re-mounted the hole in the horn buck and a couple other record bucks. But anyways, Thanxs for the comments guys and gals! Im off to Roost!!

    By the way Justintime- The early season buck I harvested was a 17 1/2 inch 8 point. Thanx again!

I still have the pic. I learned alot hunting with you and your dad and im very thankful. hell maybe one day our boys will get to hang out together like me and you used to when we where kids. I hope you and your family have a merry christmas
