You better be real lucky or live in those woods to see 140, if you find 130-140 every year you need to put on a clinic. I'd love to learn how

Yeah, he was killing them left and right a couple years ago. Hate DMACK isn't around, he kept it lively.

Hey guys just checking in. My hunting season hasn't even remotely been possible yet due to work. Maybe late season for me

Well I will be honest this is my first year deer hunting the forest .i Have squirrel and duck hunted it many times . And sense I moved to Huntsville 2 years ago I have realy injoyed hunting out thier. Plus livening 15 minutes away from it makes it hard not to hunt it.

Shat, Hotrod Hunter I know your a Newbie. I don't think you've hunted in the Sam? In fact we're going to see if your deerlease is just for riding four wheelers!?

I know, I'll hopefully last here a tad longer. At least till I'm out of college. Then we'll see what happens

Had a red fox chase a rabbit out of the woods at first light. He’s done chased 3 rabbits back and forth. One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen while hunting!!! And first fox I’ve seen in real life. Good luck fellas.

Thanks guys.

And Harry, I would say no. Law says min 400 sq inches of blaze orange. Min of 144 on chest and same for the back. So let’s say a hat is, when flattened out, 10” in diameter. That’s 78 sq in. Add the bill which may be another (3x5”) 15 sq in. So let’s round down and say 90 sq in for the hat. 400-90 is 310. That means your vest better be around 12.5”x12.5”, both on the front and back. Make sense?
