What are you going for? I'd love to go to S. Dakota and pheasant hunt, but I have to deal with western PA small game hunting for a few more years.

Do you farm those 100 acres yourself or do you hire help?My cousin owns 100+ acres in Wisconsin that was left to him when his father died. He leases it to another farmer,he doesn't have time to work it himself as he works 40 hours a week as a machinist.If it's a working farm what do you grow?I spent 2 weeks on that farm when I was 10 years old,best vacation I ever had in my life.We brought the cows in for milking every evening,and got eggs from the henhouse for his mom every morning.They never had a lot of money and had a hard time leaving for vacation as those cows had to be milked every day,but they were able to grow every thing that they needed,even had a few pigs that they raised for market;most of the income came from the milk that they sold to the cheese co-op.

I never got into archery...I figured it was a gift that I was never interested in acquiring. However, I've always had a lot of respect for bow hunters. My uncle goes out west every year for about a month. Used to hunt whitetail in Iowa and Kansas, but recently he's been hunting mule deer in South Dakota and Wyoming.

My mom was born and raised in Wyo.
on 5K acres working ranch inside the Wasatch Mts.

My uncle ran pack trips for Elk up there.

Yeah, Old West is still alive out there.

because of the altitude.

Just returned today at 2pm since leaving Friday morning at 5am. I saw lots of Doe's and Bucks (white tail and Mule deer). My buddy got (2) 8 pointers and a fat doe. I didn't get to shoot anything. I had more fun just watching the deers and relaxing after the long lawn care season. Majority of the doe's that showed up had their off springs with them (some w/2). The Bucks I did see were to small even if they were 8pt. I can't wait for Mule Deer season, saw a 10pt with about 2' high rack. Will have to post pictures. We were hunting west of the Pecos river in La Verdi county. Going again before thanksgiving. Will shoot about 2 does before the rut season (doe's out number the bucks). I don't shoot doe's after thanksgiving.

There's so many doe around here, that's all I shoot. I just go for the meat.

Ain't nothing wrong with spending the time to scout and bag a trophy buck, but it just ain't for me :)

TX whitetails aint getting smaller by any means.

New Texas State Record Whitetail Deer:
scoreable rack ....311 4/8



On opening day of the deer season 2010, Mark Barrett of the Las Raices Ranch is now the proud hunter to have taken what just might be the biggest, greatest whitetail buck to ever come out of the state of Texas. With good spring moister to build antler growth things fell into place to grow such a monster buck

I lived there in the DFW area for 40 plus years.
In the "off season", I would sell 40 cords of firewood:)

But yeah, set a thermometer out in the lawn in August and you'll see it get near 120 Then it can go down to the teens sometimes in the winter.

No, they don't have 6 months of winter, it usually just goes hot to cold.
Not much of a 4 season state. April it will start getting into the 90's.

Here is my first buck ever taken. I was on a hill looking down and spotted the buck walking out in the open instead of in the ravine. 425 yard shot, prop goes to my nikon bdc scope.

Nice looking juvenile buck. Based upon the length from the brow to nostril I'd say maybe two and a half years old.

I shoot several deer per year for my freezer and this year was no different. Never had to take a 425yrd shot though. My primary weapon is a Steven 200 in 5.56mm with a fixed 4 power 50mm scope firing 55grain HPBT semi-partition projectiles. Great for head and neck shots although I prefer to head shoot 'em. Range averages around 125yds for a "long" shot but mostly are under 80 yards.

Personally I refuse to shoot over a feeder and prefer to stalk them in brush/under grazed ranch land.

Haven't gone hungry in over 30 years.
