Hey all, went out for a short time after work today. Weather was PERFECT! Except, darn few birds. Did get up some hens, but only one rooster. Guess it wasn't in the cards for me today. Addie did very well, she's turning out to be a very good bird dog. I couldn't be happier with her!

I used my 12b F.A. Anderson. This is gun 1 of 11 made, nice handling gun.

Hey all, a bit off topic, but why not. Friday was our Deer Gun Opener at noon. My son Jim and I went up to where we've been hunting for deer the last several years. Did not disappoint. We hit a small slough bottom and jumped two out of it. I shot mine at 1:30 and Jim shot his, but only nicked her. He shot again but missed. Come to find out this stock separated from part of the action, so it shot well off of his point of aim. We went after her with Jim using my rifle and he managed to get her with one shot when we jumped her again. So, Jim was done at 2:30.

My daughter Liz came up that night with her boyfriend Travis. She had plenty of opportunities on Saturday and today, but didn't connect with any. This was the only weekend she can hunt, so she didn't fill her tag, poor kid.

Weather was really nice, too nice in the 50's and lower 60's, low winds, sure was nice to be out with my son and daughter and of course her boyfriend.

I used my Savage Model 11 Lightweight Hunter in 7mm-08 topped with a 1.75x5 Redfield Wideveiw scope. My deer was not the biggest, nothing special, but okay

Jim's deer was bigger. You can see where he hit her with his rifle (before using mine) on the Does belly.

Hi Steve---greetings from Calgary. Gogama is about an hour north of my home town, Sudbury. Many years ago, in my teen years I hunted ruffies in the Sudbury area and enjoyed some excellent hunts. Even back then, ruffies weren't everywhere and you had to work hard to get a decent bag.

Second buck with the double this season. I was practicing for Africa so I took a heart shot. I almost never shoot for the heart because our woods are so think and the fall foliage makes working a blood trail very tough. Luckily, he only ran about 20 yards but still fell in the thick stuff so I had to do a little bit of a tracking job.

Glad to see the double is still doing its job well, and that you found him without too much difficulty.

I once spent a long time looking for a roe doe that went all of 1 yard.

What I did not realise was that she had pitched nose first into the hole where a tree root had been partly grubbed out, and the grass had closed back over her backside which we eventually noticed pointing back up at us.
