With the cool temps deer activity increased exponentially at my lease in SW GA. I filled my first tag using my Ruger M77 .270 Win.

way to go.
I'm feeling a bit more active so intend to so sit on the edge of a soybean field this afternoon. Grandson will be here to help if I decide to shoot.

The rut has kicked off in SW GA. A doe popped out into one of the shooting lanes I was watching, her tail was sticking out and she stopped to urinate. Then she kept looking back in the direction she came from, fidgeting, walking in circles, etc. Her fawn from last year popped out, but I just knew something else was coming. Sure enough a 227 pound 10 point SW GA white tail stepped out. I had my M77 MKII 7mm mag sitting on my trigger stick braced against the shooting railn on the ladder stand. The buck turned to give me a good shot and I put the cross hairs behind his right shoulder and let 140 grains of Nosler Accubond do its job. I found the buck in the weeds about 10 yards off the shooting lane.

I've been hunting the same area in northeast Minnesota since 1959. This past season, the group saw fewer deer than we've ever seen.

Some trail camera pictures.... note the time stamps and they're all traveling the same direction. We figure a pack of 8.

MO antlerless season opened yesterday and I didn't hear a single shot. We lit up the area with an extended sight-in session but nothing else. As I drove back in @ dusk, 8-9 does/fawns bolted across the driveway going to our big machine shed. We're on hold pending the outcome of next week's NM elk hunt. The 'alternative methods' season opens 12/24 and runs through 1/3/23 so we can adjust the freezer level at that time.

Looked at this guys butt forever standing in a fence row ready to cross through to the corn stubble where does were feeding. Finally responded to my low grunt calls and turned giving me a good right front shoulder.
M77 in .25-06 worked again.

Kudos to the good folks above taking some NICE deer. The 2022 season looks very good for y'all.

Our archery season opened in Sept, but I was too busy working (job & new roof,) to get some time afield.
Our blackpowder season came in in early Nov. and our rut was getting very active. On election day, I managed a buck & a doe within 15 minutes of each other. (We are allowed either sex all of that 2 week season.)
Our firearm season opened just before Thanksgiving,, and at the same time, we had a 2 week either sex portion. And the entire gun season goes to Jan. Well, I took advantage of the either sex portion and have (2) more does down. I have a single antlered deer tag left,, so,, the next several weeks will be trying to get my last buck. I'll be doing the final butchering of the most recent doe today. So my 2022 season has been pretty good as well.

Good deal! Things have pretty much ground to a halt in northern Wisconsin although archery season is still going,
