    Watch out for the ticks. I hear NYS is totally infested with the little buggers. HMB

    My oldest boy and I went out Saturday, at 4 o'clock I spotted a spike in my scope, about 120 yards away that was only exposing it's upper back (no vitals), but would peek up every so often and look around. It was a safe shot (hill background) and I handed the .243 Savage over to my boy (who never shot a deer) and told him to check it out. He looked around through the scope for about 20 seconds and then froze solid....I knew he seen it. He said "I can only get a shot at the head" and I told him if that's all he's got, take it.

    Right tween' the eyes! Dropped it right there. We dragged it back and in 20 minutes, another spike showed up, then I put one clean through the heart. Yeah, I know they were only spikes, but time was limited and I wanted some meat.

    SuperX-Jeff...My hat's off to you folks up there, you aint a kidding about the rain. I was stationed at a radar site near the Oregon border when I was in the service, and in November it rained 29 days...we had to evacuate the trailer we were living in...so you speak the truth. Good hunting to you. puablo

    Spikes are the good eaters.

    I think deer hunting has drifted so far from substinance that these days it is more like a competive sport. Guys talk more about the antler score than the outing itself. Truth is, those moster Mulies we work so hard for here in northern NV don't taste very good and usually end up as jerky or sausage.

    It sounds like you did well in regards to having a good time with your boy, Tron and will probably cherish this memory more than if you had shot a B&C caliber buck by yourself. Can't wait until my daughter is old enough to draw a deer tag.
