Re: OT: An Interesting Twist...

Finished the season off in the same blind as last Tuesday. Saw several does, and the ever present spike. Just at dusk, another decent sized body appeared along the timberline, freezing and checking out the scene below. Studied him quite carefully, and recognized his two by three frame. A rather youn...

Re: What's a shooter to you?

Island bucks (Blacktails) have to be mature these days. Mulies in Alberta, they have to break minimum 180" or No Go. Whitetails / mulies in the late archery season though, it is anybody, any time :wink: I don't generally shoot bears. Yeah, carry a tag all the time, but that is much more in case of a...

OT: An Interesting Twist...

Couple days back I was sitting & pining away about not being able to get out there of late. Phone, rang, my brother in law's brother, who despite being a very fine gentleman, no longer hunts. Gave it up when he moved over here from Saskatchewan, and saw the size of the Island Deer. Turned out he was...

Re: Is anyone deer hunting at 100+ yards?

... Well I will practice targets to see how hard it is to shoot that range anyway, it will be fun and educational. It certainly will be that. :D I shoot regularly to 100 yards, sometimes with decent accuracy :wink: And were the target to be in the shape of a deer, I could in all likelihood make a "...

Re: Legal shooting hours

The vast majority of North American jurisdictions have the 1/2 hour before sunrise, and half hour after sunset hunting clauses. Some are more restricted. Few are less. Among the less ones: Here in BC the rule is one full hour before sunrise, and one full hour after sunset. Given the mountainous and ...
