    Any big ones fall today?

    It's just not there yet for the old boys. The switch will flip within the next 7 days I suspect. (well...I hope. I'll be hunting all day bow hunts starting Tue through gun opening weekend)

    Field dressing

    I used to use a dedicated gut hook knife with a utility type blade in it to open a deer up initially and then I'd use a separate Gerber hunting knife to cut membrane and upper organs out. I switched to a Case Hunter/Trapper knife and it has both blades and a small saw blade. It's actually...

    Field dressing

    Well, You are correct. It's best to "start" the cut at the sternum...aka getting through the hide. Then cut down somewhere between the back legs (buck or doe) A knife that has a turned cutting edge is great for this so you minimize puncturing the intestines. And better yet to have head up...

    Field dressing

    LOL breath through your mouth and not your nose. you have the ability to do that without holding your nose. wear rubber gloves (I never have, but I figure it'll make you feel better) The biggest thing is tread very lightly around the guts of the deer. Open the deer up from butt to sternum...

    Anyone shoot the old Remington

    I've been shooting the core-lokt Green Box in 243 and 7mm mag. Ever since I was 12 (243. 100gn) I started hand loading ammo about 5 years ago and use bulk core-lokt bullets when I can find them for the 7mm Mag (175gn) My reloads go into a used green and yellow core-lokt box.

    Western Kentucky rut

    I've killed and seen my biggest bucks on either the Wed or Thursday prior to gun season. Of course these days change as it could be as early as the 6th or as late as the 12th of November. Seems like Later gun openers are the best.

    Little buck group still together.

    You got a group of future bruisers right there. Yeah....I'd say at this point they are all checking does and all three prob pushing each other around a bit. They probably get along as a dominant deer has whooped all three of there butts.

    First Robin Hood

    Heck yeah. Hate that you lost one or two arrows with the Robin Hood...but we told you...LOL What did you end up with? I'm just curious. As I said before...Most carbons are very good these days. I'm not going to pick on you for any brand for sure.

    Arrow FPS

    Hunting arrows to me are something in the 9-10gn per inch range (which is what a lot of arrows will end up after knock, insert, and fletching. Add a 100gn broad head and now the arrow is in the 13gn per inch range. Also I probably should have said "hunting setup" as most folks will use a D...
