Default #1 down

team: #3

date:10-16-10

time:9:45 am private land

weapon: TC contender 30-30

ammo: 160 grain leverevolutions

sex: doe

I hunted in the thickest, nastiest stuff that I know of on this piece of property. I looked in front of me and saw some deer at less than 30 yards but I never heard them. It was 4 big does and as soon as I got a good clear shot I dropped the hammer. Meat for the freezer.

Team: #5

Date: 10-16-2010

Time: 11:55 A.M.

Weapon Used: .41 Mag Contender

Ammo Used: 210 Grain Remington JSP handload

Sex of Deer (# of points if buck): 2 Does

Details about the hunt: I had planned on hunting until 12:00 noon today. At 11:45 a.m. I still hadn't seen a deer all morning. I was just about to climb down out of my stand when I noticed a group of deer coming from behind me and 100 yards to my left. I didn't even raise my handgun as the group of six does passed through because it was so brushy.

I was sitting overlooking a grove of white oaks that had the ground literally covered in acorns. I just sat there hoping that that was the reason that they had chosen to visit my hollow; it was. Eventually I saw them headed my way and one of them finally stopped in front of me about 30 yards out. I shot the doe in the right shoulder with a 210 gr Remington JSP (I later found out that it passed completely through the shoulder on the opposite side as well) and she ran 30-40 yards. At the shot, deer scattered everywhere. Not sure of where the shot had come from, a smaller deer came running right toward my stand and stopped facing me about 10 yards away. I put the crosshairs on its neck and fired. The Remington JSP broke the neck, passed through the heart, and exited out the bottom of the deer about midway between its front and rear legs.

Great job everyone!

I will update the first post with the point totals.

Team # 2

Date : 11-6-10

Time 10:00 AM Private land

Weapon T/C Contender .357 Max

Ammo : My handloads Hornady 180gr SSP

Sex : Buck 8pt

The rut in Meriwether is just getting fired up so went to a place I have that is only 35 acres . This place has produced an 11pt before and was hoping to see one of his kin. Had put out some Golden Estrous scent wicks and was using a estrous can call and at 10:00 a.m. I heard a noise behind me and this buck had his nose in the wind going right to my scent wick. I let him get to about 20yds and already had the pistol up and cocked when he stepped past some brush and pulled the trigger . He ran about 80yds and piled up . I took out his heart and bottom of both lungs.
It has been a slow year this year and this is the first deer that has walked in front of me since I put a pistol in my hands. He field dressed at about 140lbs , big bodied deer but racks was very small .

Default Team #2 Strikes again

Team # 2

Date : 11-13-10

Time : 5:22 PM Private land

Weapon : T/C Contender .357 Max

Ammo: My handloads W/ 180gr Hornady SSP

Sex : Doe/ Button head

Saturday afternoon I was sitting on a field on my lease in Jasper county , there are some very long shots to be had but I was trying to limit myself to 100yds or less . I was in my popup blind @ 3:30 PM watching and waiting and nothing happened untill about 5:10 when out of the corner of my eye I spotted something on the end of the field . I pulled up my binos and looked to see what it was and couldnt find anything , then it popped its head up and moved around so I could get a look at it. It fed around an oak tree for a while and it was far enough that I was not comfortable with the shot , so I waited---- and then it started trotting down the field and started to turn and go back in the woods but it stopped just long enough for me to get the scope on it and make the shot . It dropped in its tracks , then I grabbed my laser rangefinder and took a reading ---- it said 148yds . Wow that is the longest shot so far in Georgia that I have made , so i lasered the distance to where I first saw the deer and it read 212yds . All I can say is the scope will have to be changed from a 2X to something with a bit more XXXs for next season because I think if I could have had up to a 7X scope I believe I could have made the shot @ 212 .

nice deer Darrell H. i know you are proud of that one.

man, we are so far behind now, we would have to have a slaughter to catch up.

i shot one doe with the 500 but couldn't find her--go figure that one

anyway sorry atlroach i had to shoot one with the rifle fri afternoon. it was a big 11 and just a little far for me to feel comfortable with with the hand cannon. didn't have but a few seconds and he was gonna be gone anyway.

i guess now i can put the rifle back up and at least try to keep us from getting skunked

Here's another one for team #2

Team : # 2

Date : 12-11-10

Time : 8:00 am private land

Weapon : T/C Contender 357 Max

Ammo : My handloads 180gr ssp & Win 296

Sex : Doe / Button head

Had to stay close to home so I have a friend who has some property in Paulding county . I set up my blind at 5:30 am overlooking 2 trails coming into the area I was in and at 8:00 am I could hear them walking thru the leaves toward my area. When I located them I started counting heads coming thru the woods . A total of seven was counted and when one stopped long enough to get my scope on it I shot . After that one ran off I sat for a while to make sure he was expired and at 10 mins the deer started coming back and I got my second shot but missed clean . This was my first self portrait and it took me 15 mins to figure out how to set up my digital camera for this.

Team: #5

Date: 1-2-2011

Time: 5:30 P.M.

Weapon Used: 209 X 50 Contender

Ammo Used: 70 grains Blackhorn 209/240 grain, 44 caliber Remington JSP in a Hornady sabot

Sex of Deer (# of points if buck): Boar

Hunt Details: Was slipping through the woods hunting for hogs today when I spotted this one about twenty yards away. There was a large pine tree between us and he vanished behind the tree. I kept waiting for him to step out from behind the tree but I looked down and realized that I was standing in the trail that he was walking on. When he finally emerged from behind the tree, I shot him in his left shoulder at 10 feet!
