    Very nice! I've got a couple of does hanging around my yard. They come through every evening. I haven't hunted in almost 20 years now but I am ever so tempted to get back in it again.

    Spent the last 2 hours of the day in the blind. Had a small buck with one antler come in around 5pm. Other than that - no action tonight.

    Here's a pic of him that i got a few nights ago.

    We started right early this season. One of the several "misidentifications" which caused me to quit hunting in this region is outlined in this news article: Regular hunting season underway

    Turns out the "shoot-ee" was hauling out a carcass and the "shoot-er" took a shot at the deer on the cart hitting the "shoot-ee" in the rumpus and hand... I've always said that there is no reason under the Autumn sun for a hunter that actually shoots someone in the woods to EVER have another gun or hunting license... NO excuses!

    That's why I don't hunt State land.

    I assume your laws are similar to Michigan's regarding MANDATORY hunter orange during firearm season?

    I know when I'm taking a shot on a deer, I've already had it in view for SEVERAL minutes, determined if it's a buck, doe or fawn, etc. It's pathetic to accidentally shoot another hunter like that.

    Same here, that's one of the reasons I bought my land. I will not even take a bad shot just to get a deer. If he does not present a good shot, he won that round and walks. I don't shoot a sounds, brown patches, running deer, deer heading away, or through thick brush.

    I know a guy who lived in MN, he used two cats to pheasant hunt with. Said he didn't plan it that way, but it worked great. He said one day him and a buddy left their house to go hunt some pheasant and the two farm cats followed. Shortly after they were ahead of them, then they noticed one of them started crouching down and sneaking up on something so they went to where it was going and a pheasant came up - boom! Bird down. I guess if you can get past the man/dog thing, I can't see why it wouldn't work....

    When I used to hunt firearm I used a 6" barrel .357 S&W. All shots were within 40 yds and identification was simple. With my crossbow (which is all I hunt with, including during firearm season) shots are <30yds. I let MANY more deer walk than I shoot. It's either a good shot or a shot not taken.

    In Michigan, about halfway up the lower peninsula of the state is a horizontal line - above that line you can hunt with just about anything, below that line shotgun/handgun only (probably 100yd max distance). I won't go into the woods "above the line" during firearm season - period.

    My wife's family has 80 acres up north that I'm just not sure about hunting. No one is ever there and you just don't know who has wandered onto your property if you're not there all the time.

    New in Michigan this year, rifles are allowed using straight wall cartridges, at least .35 diameter. There are also case minimum and maximum lengths. To exclude things like the 444 or 450 Marlin. It's mainly to allow rifles that shoot pistol cartridges. I did not get a .44rem mag rifle yet, so I used my 20ga.
