Here is 2 of our Southern Indiana deer. Mine was taken last year 2008 with an Ultra Slug 20, home by 730am. #2 is my 13 year old Daughter, hers was taken in 2003. Her first deer, with the anemic 410 15 yards.
The third pict is my 2008, and the 4th is my 2001. When you lay these 2 next to each other they look like twins. The 2011 buck is a hair darker and a bit thicker and curled a touch more. Oh yeah taken out of the same field
Here are some more of our Trailcam pictures. Unfortunately one of my cameras was stolen from a good spot to capture deer otherwise I would have more pics to share. Enjoy sharing these pics, especially with the kids. My 8 nephews are in training. I was teaching them what all the animals are and before I knew it they were catching little animals in the pics that I didn't see.
I shot this small racked 7 pointer this morning. I would like to send out a special thanks to Lonny (Lon371) for his assistance in finding this bullet-proof deer. He didn't want to die and ran off a ways and I couldn't find any blood to trail him. Lonny called in his boss and his son, who were in the "neighborhood", to help me find the deer. They found it within 20 minutes and helped me drag it out. We will all sleep very well this evening. I had to hold the right antler on after he crashed and broke it off along with a small chunk of his skull.
BTW, my wife doesn't like hunting all that much, it really burned her up having our young daughter up there so close to it. ;D Oh well, she'll get over it, I hope. :
I harvested these deer in Pennsylvania in 2004. I had the opportunity to hunt in the southwestern part of the state for about 4 years. They hunt on round bales out in the fields on this farm. The deer come out of the bottoms and cross the fields. I was using a 30-06 with a 165gr Hornady ballistic tip bullet. I shot the buck when he stepped out of the woods at 265yds. I shot the doe at 350 yds. It was a great hunting experience with a good friend. Memories for life that make you smile.
