Can anyone tell me the pro's-cons of a 35 Whelen vs a 45-70 on an Encore-they are legal in MS during muzzle loader season, and was wondering which is better all around. Distance, knock down, accuracy, bullet drop, etc. Any experience is welcome.
No experience with an Encore, 35 Whelen or 45-70, but I can vouch for the Knight KP1 in 444. Half inch group at 100 yards. Deadly on deer. Guess that didn't help much did it.

Should I give them another year or take them out?

These are just 1 1/2 year old bucks, give them more nutrition from january to september next year via summer plots and supplemental feed and they will put on some bone. Good looking young bucks.

I have 1 box of Federal Premium Nosler Partition 243 win. 100 grain [MOLY COATED] $ 35 # is 504-669-5050

I need advice on choosing a Honda Pioneer 1000 or a Polaris Ranger XP1000.

So many opinions out there, but I need to hear from folks with experience on Honda and Polaris.

PLEASE ADVISE on the good and bad of both brands.

This is a video summary of some of my hunting season as seen from my deer stand. There?s a lot of interesting deer behaviors that can be seen in this video and it illustrates the beauty and fun of observing nature from a deer stand. I hope you enjoy it.

Spent a lot of time last Friday and Saturday photographing and videoing several doe/yearling pairs and two 1.5 year old spike bucks. Caught a short video of the two spikes sizing each other up. It was nice to finally be able to get out and see some animals....besides…

Thursday morning this buck showed up right out of the fog. Unreal experience when all you can see is 80 yards and a big deer appears out of thick fog. The old 280AI was accurate and the 202 pounder is being turned into sausage! Another great hunt at Liberty Trace Ranch in Amite Co, MS!

Any reports of rut activity in Area 6?
Older bucks usually chase the ladies around the new moon of January in Pointe Coupee parish. Be in the woods on the 12th through the 15th.

Did anybody do any good at Sherburne WMA at Thanksgiving?

Got these pics at my lease in Mississippi. It appears the deer does not have use of a hind leg. I don't see any wounds like he was shot. I suppose he could have been hit by a car and it didn't heal right. But I'm guessing maybe he was born this way? He appears to be healthy otherwise

Possibly an injury, check out the opposite side antler deformity. Cull deer for sure.

I was recently doing a search of the Red Dirt Wildlife Management Preserve in Natchitoches Parish, and was scrolling through some photos posted by a woman from Missouri who vacationed there in 2003. I was kind of shocked when I saw one of her photos, because I knew exactly what it was. I'm…

It's funny that you posted this. I was nearly laughed out of the DWLF a few years back when I saw ,AT EARLY light chasing a doe thru Black Bayou NWR in Monroe, What I thought was a panther/cougar!! Until now I too was doubting what I saw! Thanks for the posting. I need to trust my EYEs more!!
