OK I don't usually post in the survival forum but I read it often and quietly do my own prepping. one of the things i been doing the last few years is hunting.

I kill one deer a year so me and my son can have deer jerky summer sausage and Italian sausage from the deer. I never kill more than 1 I also kill one turkey and a dozen ducks each year no more no less.

Over the last few years my herd has been growing. I hunt in the woods I own behind my home about 100 yards from my house. I use my Horton summit 150 crossbow, I have never killed a deer with a gun in my life. I just don't think its challenging enough. I used to use my 1950's compound bow my Grandfather gave me but after an injury it left me unable to pull and hold a compound bow, So after about 4 years of not hunting my wife bought me a crossbow for xmas about 3 years ago and I got a little part of my happiness back. OK enough talk how bout the deer porn!!!!

They are some nice looking deer you should be able to get some good meat from them. And hunting with a gun can be just as challenging as a bow. Just use a single shot and never hunt closer than a hundred yards.

Nice pics...we should share venison recipes......


I have a herd of about 28 in my front yard, down by the pond every morning....I don't allow hunting on my personal property, posted signs. Guess the deer know they're safe there. Plenty of fair game in the woods around my home. Though I've caught a few yo-yo's trying to hunt at night via truck headlights in my front yard....

Bet you make some killer jerky!!!

If you live in Mass. you are only allowed to use a Shotgun or Ancient Firearms such as a Flintlock. WE also have bow season and I used to have the time to be an avid Hunter.

As for you 100 yard statement...this distance is at the very edge of effective distance for a Shotgun that uses a SLUG or Buckshot. If you were in a State that allowed the use of a Rifle to hunt for Deer then 100 Yards is a VERY SMALL DISTANCE at which a Deer can be targeted as I have several Rifles and with my scopes can target and shoot a Deer and have a Single Shot kill using a 30 06 or .308 which can take down a Deer from over 500 yards with ease. Rifle Hunting for Deer in Mas is not allowed as even a .22 round can travel over a mile and this is dangerous in such a densely packed Human Population.

I could very easily use a good compound Bow and using a Bow Scope take down a Deer from over 150 Yards.

Ahhh, reminds me of when I lived in a little town of the North Woods, called Solon Springs, Wisconsin. We used to put piles of corn in front of our picture window, and sometimes we would get 30 or 40 of them. They got so used to us, that they wouldn't even move when you went outside the front door to get in your car. They would just glance up, and keep munching. Deer Stands were well in the back of the 40 acre property we had, but, I do think this gives hunters an unhealthy edge (for the deer) in taming them for hunting season.

I used to love to watch the does play with the bambi's in the springtime!

I have no issue with hunting per say, other than I didn't think it was right to "bait" them with the corn. Winters are very brutal there in the winter and a lot of deer starve to death in the winter when snow gets chest deep. I guess it's better to put them to use.

Be careful though. I got a horrendous parasite from eating backstraps that put me in the hospital for months!

Pretty impressive!
I was driving up my hill this evening and noticed 6 or 7 deer feeding in this guys yard.
I normally see one or two.

It would seem the deer are taking refuge in my neighborhood,which is good for me and my neighbors.

It's rutting season. I used to be in wonder of that, too, until one ran right out in front of me in the road.

Be careful, and use your peripheral vision!

Better yet, put whistles on your car!

I'll be reading up on the suject of deer parasites especially in that norther region particularly MN which is having the same parasite issues.

Just wondering if anyone here has some simple tips for avoiding the type of parasites and disease the north woods deer of Wisconsin and MN are prone to have?

I am moving to Cass Lake MN which has a superfund site due to a large effort to manufacture power poles and other items involving cancer causing chemicals that whitey thought would be great to dump on indian lands.

Since they were all taking their wealth west or eastword it was nothing but winter wasteland in Casslake MN.

I am a Ojibwe descendant pushed onto the land by whitey with no choice.

Guess what..

We have contamination in our lakes and the fish are as #ed as an amazon tribe in the crosshairs of a breakaway society of physcopaths.

Not only do I worry about the usual parasites but I worry about what whitey left for us.

We have a flock of 100+ wild turkey walking around the house outside. I kid you not, we were out shoting bows at the bow range and 30+ turkey started walking right infront of our targets.
We didnt shoot at them, they were all female but it was really funny to see suicidal turkeys walking across the bow range.


talk about an easy meal.

I used to love taking the distance shot. But as I got older, I noticed that the distances became shorter.


Lugging the carcass across draws and spurs took it's toll on me.
Hell, let's face it...I'm getting old.


I do like Bow hunting as well, but hate the tracking part. I prefer to take them down in one clean shot, which is hard to do with a bow.

What can I say, I do have a bit of compassion in me, I'd prefer that they don't suffer for providing me food on my table.

Wisconsin restocked the turkey population a bit back and put out a moratorium that they are not to be hunted for something like ten years or so. So the population could sustain itself.

By year six...

KILL THEM! KILL THEM ALL!
