    Hunting here in Jersey is winding down. Saturday marks the end of fowling. Upland is over and deer is soon to be. Here are some pics from some of my adventures with the family. How was your season? Share some photos. Good luck Chuck Hrosik

    You have something there we don't here - habitat. What we have is no water and an ocean of brush that chokes out everything. It's all old growth and supports little wildlife. It's so thick a rattlesnake can't crawl through it and there are thousands of square miles of it. But not to worry - it produces spectacular wildfires that kills and destroys everything, so it's not like it has no redeeming qualities.

    Antelope - shot a nice buck with my muzzleloader in Idaho, but struck out in Montana because all the land was leased and I couldn't get permission to hunt.

    Elk - I shot a real nice 6x6 the first day.

    Deer - the only nice buck I saw gave me the slip.

    Pheasants - didn't find any the few times I went out.Sharptails - I got my limit the last day of the season, which was the first day I went out. After the season was over I went back looking for pheasants, and was flushing 25 - 50 sharptails each time.

    Ducks - very slow so far, and the season ends here Friday. The birds are there, but staying in inaccessible areas. Geese are the same story, thousands of birds, but using areas where they can't be hunted.

    Well, missed upland and squirrel hunting because my dad was dying of cancer, didn't even see a deer during deer season, missed rabbit, crow and coyote hunting in Nov and Dec because of a serious lung infection, so yeah, it was better than the best day working.

    Trying to get out on weekends now for coyote hunting, weather cooperating.

    Can't wait until varmint season starts up in the spring.

    Dog handling for kids on planted pheasants at DFG hunts was the most fun I had this year. This is the only land in the area that isn't choked with brush, and they turned it into a no hunting or trespassing area except during these hunts.

    I didn't get anything this deer season,but had a great time.The killin part ain't the half of it.Just being in the hills away from all the B.S. is enough for me.Good friends,a warm fire,and a good rifle is quite enough for me(ie:I don't ask for much)I hope all y'all had a great season too!!!!!!

    Not birds but hunting never-the-less.

    Best and worst season. Our group of 5 is at about 600 ducks and geese, including Canada trip, one more trip to go. Help friend get out first elk on Colorado trip I passed on lots of cows. Deer only killed a doe for meat, but helped 3 young men kill their first buck. Worst, best hunting buddy and friend 52 years old told has cancer with outside of 3 years left. He is going on duck and snow hunt end of month hope not his last.

    Rick, I have not seen bulls that thick even on the Jackson Hole Elk Refuge in February. Amazing!

    I have been out a couple of times with my Nephew Grant. This was the first day he carried a family gun,the Browning Double Automatic. He went 2 for 2 on rabbits and said "I love this gun".

    I did alright. Top is my Illinois buck, second is my MN buck, third is my MN hunting group. We got 7 deer total off my land, four buck, 2 nice ones. I've done a lot of habitat and food plot work and it's paying off.

    We also had some good pheasant hunting is SD and in MN. As much as I love deer hunting I don't think anything is as exciting as jumping a rooster.

    I had a good year in 2010. Turkey, dove, pheasant, deer and ducks all cooperated. Still have another week of Duck in NE Ark.

    Good deer season, saw lots of animals...shot deer with bow and shotgun. Did more missing this season than probably all my seasons put together, can I blame it on my eyes? Don't think so since I just got em both done for cataracts! It sure was good to be out in the woods for 2 plus months.
