Its snowing and blowing it must be hunting season

Wahoo!!! the weather finally turned nice out :)

With deer hunting starting Tomorrow at noon I can't wait, I love hunting when the weather is bad. Looks like the ranger is going to be making the trip this year cause the F150 needs new tires and they don't come in until Monday. I got the tents ready to go and lots of fire wood to keep warm. Leaving Tomorrow at about 4am....

I'm jealous. I'm ready for some snow to play in, AND deer gun season!!!!!

:) I will be down in the Caribbean on a cruise, then return and go deer hunting the following week. PRobably 70's-80's one week, and who knows what the weather I'm hunting in will be like, probably not as warm as the Caribbean though

The 270 is a very nice gun for dear. i have a remington 700 chambered in 270 and i love it. If you get a good shot on them they wont get away.

Wow impressive. Down here were lucky if we even get to attempt a 300 yard shot.

Ive got a Remington 870 Super Express Mag. I was 3" rifled slugs in my smooth barrel. Last year I got my dear at about 15 yards and it was running full speed left to right. Hit it right in the vitals. Now that's an impressive shot.

Personally I don't think using a scope is fair. I dont think its fair. Personally I want that deer to know im there, at least it has a chance to take me out before I take it.

You and Jimmeh have snow before us? Weird, however I must admit, I don't mind at all.

Great looking rifle setup, what kind of quality are the Tikka rifles? I don't know anyone with one or have used one, they seem to be nice however.

I am jealous of the snow and being able to hunt. Here are a couple bucks that the trailcam shot a little while back. Not ready for this season and maybe not next but the following, these boys should be healthy.
