    Trophy hunting here (Iowa)....passed up a lot of deer, those big boys take a little more patience. Holding out for a 180 class that's been cruising the neighborhood.....once I saw him everything else seemed tiny.

    You gotta stay away from those Chrysler products. There's a reason that company went out of business....twice.

    Saturday (Nov 3rd) was opening day. I live on the ranch so I see them (deer) everyday. I walked out and sat in the blind opening morning with the rifle. Saw three (two doe, one buck) did not shoot at any. I heard very few shots so opening day was not successful to very many around here. Did not really plan on shooting one yet, so I had fun just sitting there watching the sunrise and the deer. Still hot down here in SW Texas. It was 60 degrees at sunrise and in the 80's later that day.

    Yesterday was the first day of primitive weapons. I didn't get to go then but I did today. I got a young doe from about 65 yards with my .54 Hawken. Yeah I know my truck is a catchall.:D

    Howdy I have been out 5 times. Have yet to see a deer. Saw 5 on the private land to the north but there anti hunter. This last summer we had record heat and drought. We had no rain from july14 until sept4 dont forget the fires. The dry land corn just down the road grew to 40 inches and stoped. Okay thats enought whining. The deer are here we just need to adjust our methods. That and some cold maybe some snow might do it. To days temp 78. Good hunting and have fun.

    Are there limits on the number of deer you can take Jack? What kind of deer do you have?

    Man, this is the 6th day now and still nothing. We have been following doe and buck tracks like crazy but they all lead to restricted areas. I jumped a couple the other day but the ran right into some housing district. Hopefully theres better luck tomorrow and saturday.

    Out for another couple of days and still nothing except a couple ticks. Saw a couple of big gobblers this morning and wanted to fire so badly because I never saw them when it was actually season but they know how to work it. We sat on a nice area where there were buck and doe tracks, some nice piles of droppings and some scrapes but they never made it back up our way. On the other hand, my lady is quite angry she had to work today and her cousin shot a nice buck up north where we go when she isnt working. Hopefully I can get her something too so she doesnt have to listen to him all year.

    First two of muzzle loader. A spike on the one and the other was a 8 pointer but had 2 broken off. At least it's meat for the freezer.

    Regular season ended here. Didnt end up shooting something, no matter how hard I prayed for those does to grow antlers I saw, it never worked. I did help my buddy get a nice 5 pointer a week ago. At least I'll get some meat there!
