I have my deer lease and that's about it for me this year. Oldest daughter starts college this fall so I feel blessed to stay on out there. Some day I really really want to start going out west for elk, muleys, antelope, etc.

Practice, practice, practice.

I got one turkey with the handgun, but the second one I shot got away. Bummed about that.

Just got a new G2 Contender set up in 22lr for the tree rats too.

Really want to take a black Bear this year. I?m a bit gun poor right now and will have to figure if it?s doable on the cheap.


I am looking into doing the same, and saw some ole boys pullin out a nice black bear from the Rapidan WMA ( Link ), they were using dogs though. I was thinking about a camping/hunting trip there, and try to get ahead of the dogs. Primitive camping with easy access to a trout stream. Just need to get away and do some scouting.

SAME'O, SAME'O THIS YEAR, YEAR ROUND PIG HUNTING AT THE HIGHPOINT AND DURING THE DEER SEASON MAYBE A MANAGEMENT BUCK AND/OR A DOE OR TWO. NO SPECIAL HUNTS BOOKED OR CONTEMPLATED.

MY SON AND I ALSO WANT TO DO A LOT MORE DUCK HUNTING THIS COMING SEASON (LAST SEASON HE DID VERY LITTLE AND I DID NONE).

Going to ND for prairie dogs end of June. Besides a slew of rifles will also use my 12" Encore in 223, plus S&W 22 Victory.

Going to Ely MN for black bear in Sept. Going to use my Ruger Guide gun in 338 RCM, only because I haven't had a chance to use it on anything. I took my last bear with a chopped SRH in 480.

For deer at home here in IL, plan on using 12" Encore in 44, and 5" custom SRH also in 44. at also use 9" Encore in 357.

My plans for the rest of 2018 are-hunting Georgia alligators in August, following the dogs at a south Georgia bear camp in September, going after a Colorado bull elk in October, then deer and bear on public land in the north Georgia mtns in November. Throw in some deer hunting on the back 40, and I have some plans this fall.

Will hunt the pigs and whitetail here in Alabama. One of these days I'd love to take a mule deer.

Whitetails in Iowa and mulies in Wyoming. Going to try to spend more time in the woods this fall, I failed miserably last fall.

I am working on hunting hand loads for both my 30 30 and my 44 mag contender barrels to hunt whitetails here in North Carolina this season.

I hope to kill at least one deer with my CVA Optima V2 muzzleloader pistol and both contender barrels. It has been three seasons since I have killed a trophy buck and I would love to do that with one of my pistols this year.

Until our deer season opens here I will be practicing and having fun with my contenders.

I was a bit too cautious last season. Passed up a few perfect shots thinking I'd have more opportunities, but I ended the season without a single deer to my credit. I mean it, I'm focusing heavily on does this season, and I promise you my Optima and 460 will finally be used on more than just paper.
