Hunting

Rising out of the morning mist, the mighty hunters approach.

Isaac with the deer he shot.
BTW, that's a nice gun he's holding. I shot my first (and only) deer with it - just in case you wanted to know.

Making the Game Commission happy.

The brotherhood.

Philip, with a determined set to his jaw, carefully scans the woods before him.

Success!
Philip with his first deer.

Hey Josiah how big was your deer anyway? Mine was about 80-90 pounds.

80-90.lbs!!!!!! THAT BABY? I think that is about 45-55 lbs. I know those things look and feel big, but mine was bigger and it weighed 50-60. I later learned (rather forcibly) that an 90 lb. doe is a nice sized doe.
Cool gun! What is the make ,model and cal.?

Josiah, Are you talking about "live weight" or "dress weight"? The live weight was around 70-90 lb. and the dress weight around 30 lb.

Hey Jo!
My gun was a 30-30 Win. model 94AE.A really sweet gun that I got for about $200.
That's a 3x9 Tasco scope on it.
