nice pic but the gun looks to be pointed at ur head!!!

Happens a lot. It looks like his jacket at the shoulder is covering part of the barrel so the muzzle is likely behind his head. I posted a pic of our daughter's first deer one year and it looked similar so re-posted another but lower quality pic that didn't look so suspicious. We knew the gun was unloaded and not really pointed at her head but the pic left some question.

Awesome buck!

Ya the gun is actually several inches away from my arm. It just looks like it is right next to it. It's not pointing at my head at all. It is unloaded also. I can see how it looks that way though.

My 8 year old did it again in the Missouri youth season. This time was 150 yard shot and he dropped it in its tracks on the first morning. We saw 13 deer in the first hour and a half and this was the 2nd biggest buck we saw.

love those Marlin lever actions. My first deer rifle was one in 35 Remington because that's what my dad always shot.

Nice deer.

We had a good opening weekend. I shot a nice buck at 6:55 am on Saturday morning. 2 deer came flying out of a big ditch 100 yards away, I heard a deep grunt, knew what was coming next, and get ready. He pops out of the ditch, comes towards me about 10 yards. Real quick check of outside the ears, enough points, and mature body, he met them all. If he followed the does, he would veer left and I would lose him so I pulled up, put the cross hairs on his chest, fired, and he was gone. I had no idea if I hit him. He was gone so fast and he never even flinched. I decided to give it 30 minutes and go look, 15 minutes after the shot I hear a wheeze, and just a little bit of leaves crashing. I then thought he was probably hit and was in the ditch. After the 30 minutes and got down to look for blood, didn't find any blood, hair, or spore, where I thought he was standing. Decided I would walk down along the ditch and try and see if he was there, turned around and took 10 steps and there he was behind some brush. He was not the one I thought I had on camera. We didn't have any pics of him.

I then Went home that afternoon and got my 7 year old son, he wanted to go out badly and his grandfather was more than willing to take him. I had originally told him it didn't look like he would get to go because the weather looked so awful. I didn't think it would be good, but Saturday night turned out to be surprisingly nice. I was excited for him to go because we just found out that he needed glasses and he got them last week. Hunting was going to look totally different to him with his glasses on. He jumped at the chance to go. So I took my nephew to my stand and sat with him, and his grandfather went to our 3 season condo stand. The condo stand is great for kids, it is fully enclosed, overlooking another meadow in the bluff side, but I am not thrilled about it's location. It's tough to get the deer to come in close enough for a great shot, their normal travel routs are all around 100 yards away, with one nice trail about 50 yards. At 4:00 I am glassing that meadow across the valley, which is about 400 yards away from my stand, and see a fork horn in the meadow. I am hoping they were still in the stand to see him, but I was not optimistic. 4:15 I glass over the meadow and there is now a nice doe in the meadow, and at 4:30 I hear one shot. I quickly pull up the bino's and see a large bodied deer running up the meadow to the trees, he gets to the tree line and disappears. It was obvious it was hit and I was very excited that they were still out there. About 15 min later, I see a big orange blob walking up the meadow with a little orange blob hot on his heels. They get to the tree and clump of brush that I last saw the deer and I see Grandpa motion for the little blob to stay back as he goes a little farther up just about to the treeline. I then see Grandpa motion to him to come and there is the little orange blob running up the meadow. I can't see them very well in the woods, but I can tell that the little one is jumping up and down, hands and arms just a flapping away. I was very excited for him and proud that he stuck it out for over 4 hours in the stand. I later learned that the buck came in to check the meadow for does and was starting to walk away when my son hit "the can" call for grandpa and the buck turned around and came right back to within 75 yards. It was pretty awesome to see his expression and he was still very excited yesterday.

      Does anybody know any good places to catch Sturgeon on the Mississippi River near the cities. If so what gear should I use.    thanks
    • TomWehler
      Great Sunset pic. Thanks.  
    • TomWehler
      FYI Saw car thru narrows between lil green n green last night. Please think.    Never driive thru skinny narrows as these lakes do have pretty steady current. Scattered carp holes will start showing up also - so BEWARE. BE SAFE. HAVE FUN! 18” here.  6” there.    Keep on Rocken! T

      Someone has to be within 200' of their portable or it needs to be licensed. Nothing in there about overnite that I saw.

      The Mille Lacs Fisheries Advisory Committee (MLFAC) will meet from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, at Appeldoorn’s Sunset Bay Resort, 45401 Mille Lacs Parkway, Isle.   The agenda will focus on this year’s safe harvest level, a fishing season update and DNR’s in-progress lake management planning process. Members of the public may observe MLFAC meetings, but these meetings serve primarily as a way for the committee to hold group discussions. Fifteen minutes are reserved for public comments and questions. The committee has been active since October 2015. Its purpose is to advise the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on the State of Minnesota’s fisheries management program for Mille Lacs Lake.

      Exactly...overnight yes.🙂
    • Rick
      Portable shelters only need licenses and identification when left unattended, which is defined as all occupants being more than 200 feet away.
    • iiccee63
      It is a portable. No one has to put any info on there. Fyi

      5 days left in the big game ice fishing season. I'm sure if you ask jonny boy he was say it has been a grind with quite a bit of frustration thrown in for good measure. The condition were tough to say the least. Dealing with deep snow and slush made getting to good fishing grounds impossible at times. Having to abandon good fishing due to slush problems, working on the fleet outside most of the time was and has always been a chore to say the least. from broken axels,  u joints, door latches, windows not going up, wiper motor, heaters, electrical problems from all the ice built up. Getting stuck was also a huge problem. Every year is different . years ago we did have similar conditions with road ways flooding, then refreezing etc.  The kids have been busy with the turnover of houses this week. They were able to move shell chick and her friend Terrry to another area where they had a little better fishing going home yesterday with there 8. Tony boy our old helper came up with his kids Mason and Treana. they have floated around from montana to florida. The first night they had 3 followed by a couple more. They did stay one more night so we will have to see how they did. The fishing has been slow for sure.  Jake ,Jen and there boy Lakin  they  had 5 yesterday when they headed in to clean them and have dinner at westwind. Jake sure likes how they cook your fish there.  I'm not sure how the guest in Colorado did  as I thought they were here 2 nights not one.  Asley plans on fishing the next 2 nights I think.  With Rick and Bob out in florida last night and there friend Rod and his crew in north Dakota we will have to see how they do on there fresh spots.   Florida is still wide open for the weekend due to a cancelation, They may of gotten spooked by the slow fishing or ice conditions  I did get to wet a line for a bit yesterday in old Minnesota, again fishing with the chubby darter Ii had another pike ,only this time he hit the rattle wheel which sure made it fun to catch.  I"m again headed out to fish the morning in old Minnesota before we head to  another appointment for my car accident injuries. I'm still dealing with problems from my concussion, i'm praying and hoping that my broken vertebra are healed up as I expect some therapy will be next. Its time to head out and do a little fishing on this grand lake that owes us nothing.
