I need a new rifle. Don't want to spend slot and don't care about a fancy stock or checkering. Leaning towards the browning ab3. I can get it at bass pro right now for 399 after rebate. Same bolt and barrel as xbolt I believe

That doesn't seem like a bad deal I hunt with a Browning A bolt 270 I've had for years.

@@dawgbit when the guns come out those days of seeing big bucks are over until the rut.

Yup. Usually too damn true.

We've been leaving a couple spots untouched in hopes them big boys forget what day it is.

Hoping too that this little spate of cold gets em riled up earlier than usual. Watched a doe paw-n-pee in a scrape on the edge of one of our greenfields the day before yestiddy.

Today feels like Christmas Eve. Gonna wack some gadwalls and woodducks in the morning.

Need to bust a doe so I can start hunting horns. Our freezer is almost empty.

Shot at and missed 2 hogs this morning. I havent seriously deer hunted in over 20 years. I killed a nice 11 point which hangs on my office wall and prefer pork to venison...

Hit the marsh at the mouth of the pearl river with my dad today. Too windy and muddy to catch much. One sheepshead and one croaker was the total haul. Good to get out of the house though

Mid-season report:

Had 2-3 decent hunts of mainly gadwall and wood ducks early during the first two weeks. We also had a hunt with a 4 man limit of gadwall that is, to date, our best hunt of the year. Since thing, things have shut down. Hunted a draw hunt Friday morning and we were lucky to kill one blue wing teal.

Need to turn my attention to the deer in the next few days. The rut is in full force in our area. Went Friday afternoon, didn't see anything, but pulled the game camera as I came out. Had 6-7 seperate decent bucks on camera over the course of a couple of weeks. One VERY nice deer. Hoping to get a chance to hunt him later this week. Thankfully I have another 5-day weekend ahead of me.

They all live on Wheeler refuge down the street and come out into the fields to eat the soybean/corn leftovers. That and the neighborhoods to my north have out feeders for them. Nothing between us and the refuge other than open land.

Half my family is drooling to come hunt the refuge because of the pics I send them. lol

Big boy there and about 4 does were just living it up out there. Thought it was coyotes the way the dogs went nuts so I looked out to see if I needed to get the rifle.

Yeah they have enough sense to know where they're protected or there's not much hunting pressure on them. My best friend is the manager at Guntersville state park I've been over there with him feeding deer like that one crackers out the car window

      It's funny black guy acts like a thug, carries a gun, gets killed by law enforcement, you smile but somehow you are all gonna be a senior citizen version of Rambo when confronted by the authorities

      I think the simplest indicator is the popular vote, which you lost by 3 million  how come Hillary actually paid a price for calling people deplorables, but nothing happens to Trump for anything he says? because conservatives are phony amoral hypocrites
