    My dad shot the 180# 6point in Lexington 11-10-05

    Paden shot his first deer the doe in Lexington 11-04

    Gary (hubby) shot the 234# 8 point in Coplin 11-19-05 (we had to buy another freezer for 120# of boneless meat)

    The 8 pointer had a huge face and 4 of his tines were busted....obviously fighting with another big buck.....

    Looks like you have had a great season. Love seeing those kids out hunting. Much better for them than sitting in the house playing video games. Nice Savage lever gun too. What caliber is it? Deer season has been pretty slow for me. I shot a doe during bow season and a 300+ lb hog opening weekend of general deer season. I saw 2 good bucks, one was a definate trophy quality deer, but I didn't have a good shot at either one.

    Myself and the kids shoot .250 lever and bolt.... even my daughter at 60 lbs (light load bullets homemade with uncle).
    My husband has a cannon....a Remington.280 bolt...he uses 140grain ballistic silver tips by winchester
    My dad uses either .270 or 3030

    They play video games too...particularly Cabela's games but it isn't all consuming to them...they like being outside

    My husband is quite a hunter....11 point(199), 10 point(175) (Maine Antler and Skull CLub), 2 8 points well over 200...222 & 234 (add 20% for live wt) and not actually a trophy hunter....we prefer doe meat, but doe tags are by lottery and only in recent years have tags become plentiful....successful deer management by wildlife dept.

    Great pictures.

    How old is your daughter? Mine is 7yo and has been wanting to start hunting, but on the young buckmasters site it said they should wait until 10 years of age. My daughter is more mature than a lot of 10 year olds I know.

    She turned 10 during hunting season....not hunting yet just practicing and learning about guns, bullet making and responsibility.....
    Kids need to be 10yo in Maine to hunt....and you can buy a lifetime license for them here....my son has one(a birthday present at 6yo)

    Daughter is more farmer like me and boy is like dad....but she says she wants to hunt..... I overheard a conversation between daughter and son...son says "Hunting is fun, but after you kill deer, the next day you feel real sad like when goats are sick or the dog died" ;)
     
  18. I'm jealous, I wished the deer got that big around here in my neck of the woods. Awhopping 150 pounder is considered a big monster around here and here you have pictures of does being that big.

    Wow if you consider a .280 a cannon then no telling what you would consider the rifles I deer hunt with, a .300 Win mag and a .338 Win mag. I shoot 150 gr Remington core locts out of the .300 and 250 gr Remington core locts out of the .338. Never had a deer take a single step with either one. The hog I shot dropped in his tracks at 350 yards. And you ought to see what they do to pesky coyotes, it's quite comical. ;)
