They have both hunted with me a few times. This is there first year shooting. I was worried about the scope hitting them in the eyes. Krissy got her doe at the end of Dec. 70 yds facing us. She said, \'I put it right on the white spot.\' Kasey got hers at 50 yds. Broad sided. Ran about 50 or 60 yds and fell in sight of us. Almost cut the heart in two. Another doe stepped out and she said, \'Let me shoot that one too.\' I had to tell her, \'No baby, we\'re are only allowed one doe and one buck a day.\' She wasn\'t disappointed. We got to teach them the laws while there young. I\'m proud of my baby girls.
My daughter killed her first one. She's a twin, so they've been taking turns. They are 14yrs old. When I asked her to give her sister a few extra chances, she was quiet. The next day, she told her sister 'Just because you haven't killed one yet, doesn't mean I have to stay home til you do. We are still taking turns' The doe was facing her at 70 yds right at dark. She said, 'I put it right on the white spot' The deer crumpled. I think I may have created a monster. They have been with me while hunting but this is their first year with there own gun.
Alright Guys, I need some help. I plan on hunting Loggy Bayou during the muzzleloader split. I'm gonna hunt it during the week. My plan is to take the 4 wheeler trail going furtherest north and crossing the waterway called Big Ditch and walking north a good ways after that. My question is, has anybody out there ever ventured in to this area and if so, are there trees fit for a climber? Thanks in advance.
Mid to North Tangipahoa Parish. I have been seeing deer on the roads relatively often lately.
1 to 2 at a time mostly. On my way home from work yesterday,in an area along the road that I always see a doe, I saw a brand new fawn. Just as shiny brown as could be, with spots as white as snow!!! Just laying down next to the woods.
30-06 vs 308.
Im an 06 guy but a friend of mine is looking to start deer hunting next year. He is down to one of the two choices.
My question is, compared to the 30-06, how much knock down does the 308 have and which one would you say shoots the flattest.
308 vs 30-06, 30-06 vs 308.
I shoot a 30-06. To me, that is plenty of gun.
Friend, new to deer huntin, is buying a rifle.
He is down to these two choices.
308 would shoot flatter I expect but what about
knock down power?
I've been taking my twin 10 year old daughters deer hunting the last couple of years. I haven't let them shoot yet. I never told them they couldn't shoot either. 2 days ago, one of told me she wanted a gun. (makes a father proud) I had already been thinking about that for the last couple of years I told her. Everybody says 243. Some say 7mm 08. It's not the kick on the shoulder I'm worried about, its the scope on the eye. I'm scared to death of it hurting them. Does anyone have suggestions. Or stories, good and bad.
Can someone explain Area 1 early and late rut times? Is Early and Late for diffent portions of area 1? If so, where does Tensas or Franklin Parish fit? Or East Feliciana to Washington Parish? Exactly what is what. Thank in advance
