I've been a member for just a short time. Born and raised in Utah, hunting since I was 12. Now I live in northern Utah County and don't get out hunting anywhere near enough. Marriage and kids kind of put a damper on things. ](*,) Have been teaching Hunter Education for 12 years now. I figure if I ca...

Geese! 1/25/07

Here are some pics I took tonight just as I got home. There must have been over 500 in this one field alone, with about 1200 total in the immediate area. Sorry about the pics, the camara isn't that great. I just wish there was shooting withing city limits for just a few minutes. The closest were abo...

My first was when I was 17. A nice older 5x6, 25.5 wide X 18 tall. Weighed in at 231 gutted. Kicked him out of a flock of sheep along with 3 others that were just as big or bigger. Took him at about 300 yards with a .303 British. (The next year I bought my '06). He knew where to hide. Unfortunately ...

Now why didn't I think of that? At least you'd know that if your "future" would go along with something like that, you really had a future with hunting. I have a friend that got hitched a more traditional way and after just a couple years found he wasn't able to spend much time outdoors anymore. She...

Yeah, you'll look back some day on that hunt and remember how much fun it was. Even the joking and ribbing. Did your dad make you gut the deer? I think that is why my dad took me hunting before I was 16 (legal age to hunt deer back then). He said if I couldn't handle gutting a deer, I couldn't shoot...

I got lucky with a 5 out of 11. However, isn't it just the SHEATH that gets shed every year and not the entire "horn"? ??? Never hunted the speed goat before. Seen a lot of them and been thinking about it some. Maybe one of these years I'll break down and actually put in for a tag.

Pretty cool! He must have been using it as a disguise. :-k Just turn away from the hunters and look like a doe! What a great birthday present! I used to see one occasionally in the west desert that when looking at it face-to-face, the rack looked like a backward "L". The right side went straight out...

Above the TV? What TV? Is there a TV in the house?

I think I'd be dreaming at that more too!

It is always a shame to lose an animal like that, especially one as big as he is. I have come across several deer caught in fences (mostly fawns) but have never had to see one suffering in the fence. Most had already been chewed on by the coyotes and other critters. He could have been such an asset ...
