Re: Tell us about your upcoming hunt
First off, thanks for creating this forum.
My boring hunt consists of driving a whopping 3 miles from my house, walking a whopping 200 yards to my deer stand and waiting for the deer to come out of the woods so I can kill them. My stand is 6' sq and 21' high. I watch over a field that is 750 yards - the longest shot I would have. I have a swivel bench, front rest and rear bag for my 300 win mag to sit on. I push 180gr ballistic tips at a measured 3180 FPS and I use a Schmidt & Bender 4 to 16 X 50 PM scope. I also use Leice Geovid range finder.
Last year I killed a doe at 75 yards (bullet did NOT explode) and another at a measured 388 yards, broadside, double lung shot. That second deer went 30 yards and did a back flip - dead. I am hopefull that a deer will step out of the woods at 750 yards and give me a nice broadside shot.
I truly would like to find someplace to hunt does. What I am looking for is a cull hunt where I can kill 3 or 4 doe a day for 3 or 4 days. Distances of out to 400 yards is fine. My 22 is ready to go. Oops I best explain before people jump down my throat about killing deer to 400 yards with a 22. My 22 is a 22 CHeetah MK 1, push a 52gr berger bullet at a measured 4280 FPS and it works good on whitetail deer - out to 400 yards. If anybody knows of where I can kill 3 or 4 deer a day, let me know [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Two buddies and myself went on a doe hunt last year in South Carolina. The outfitter of this lodge "claimed" it would be easy to kill 4 deer a day. In the 4 days I was there I saw 2 live deer. By the time I got on them somebody else was blazzing away at them.
I see on TV all the time where these hunting lodges/camps have 10 or more doe out on some food plot while the hunter is waiting for Mr Big to come out. I am looking for a place like that, where you actually see a lot of deer everyday and have the opportunity to kill 3 or 4 doe a day. Saying you can kill 3 or 4 doe a day and seeing that many doe a day are 2 different things as my wallet found out last year.
Anybody wanting to know who this outfit was in SC last year, let me know. The guy ripped us off, money wise as well.
Anyway, Len thanks for creating this site and I hope all of you find what you are looking for this season.
