Quick.
You talk about skinny looking deer. You're lucky to have a 45-70 to knock them over, eh? You sure the 45-70 is big enough for those animals? Nice pictures my style of hunting, shooting out of the upstairs bed room window at deer feeding in the apple orchard 50 yards away. Then tell the wife to get up and gut the deer. 8)

Oh..great...I should have known better that to send Quick a photo of myself!! :x Yes..the deer down here are a srawny lot...dress out about 60 to 70 pounds...there are biggies though but they don't get that big by being stupid enough to walk out on a virtual prarrie on a rifle range!! :-D

Story: Had been shooting for about an hour or so at 100 yard berm...the deer came out behind the berm and trotted toward the firing line all in single file!! When they got even with the line (less than 50 yards!) I slowly walked over to my truck and got my camera..we were up wind from them and they just stood there when they got a whiff of us...I shot a couple pic's and then the ole white flags went up and they bolted off....I don't know why we have such small deer in this area..there are BIG deer in certain parts of Texas but not down here...most look like greyhounds with big floppy ears... :-D My old lease had a bunch of spikes on it too...some pretty large bucks but poor antlers....


P.S. that form is from low center of gravity caused by dun-lap-disease.........de belly is done lapped way over the belt buckle....


Fred....sounds like you got um trained right....now what is your phone number and what is your wifes name???? I have some information to tell her... :-D :-D :-D :-D

Great story Deadeye! Thanks for sharing. Those smaller deer aren't just prevelent in your neck of the woods, I've seen some real small ones in parts of the southeast US. Bag limits per year are several cuz they're so tiny and lots of em, I guess! Not true here, 1 deer per year, but they're a bit bigger.... :wink:

ps, the pic is my second post, the original I deleted, it was more humorous!

I kinda figured it was Deadeye when I saw the terrain that was as flat as an ironing board!

I think we have an antler problem and maybe a size problem because of a shortage of calcium (lime). Bone and antler are both made up of a lot of calcium and neither east Texas sand or coastal black gumbo have much, if any. They may be able to grow boneless and skinless chickens, but I don't think it works well with deer! :roll:
