My son did that.  Trying to teach him gun safety I told him not to chamber a round until he got settled in the climber.  2 does come out pulls the hammer back puts the crosshairs on the chest and pulls the trigger "click."  He calls me on the radio and says you're not going to believe what I just did, without hesitation I said "no bullet?" My buddies use to tease him and nicknamed him click. :laugh:

One of our neighbors when I was growing up used to get buck fever really bad (this guy was in his late 40's or early 50's). He was using a lever action one day, don't remember whether it was a Marlin or Winchester, when the biggest buck he had ever seen walked right up to him. He did his best "Rifleman" imitation and emptied the rifle. Only problem was, HE NEVER PULLED THE TRIGGER! All of the bullets were laying in a pile on the ground - the deer stood there for a minute looking at him and then calmly walked away. ;D

I have seen the rut going on for the past 3 weeks. Bucks chasing does, while I was hunting, making scrapes and just had two 7 pointers fighting in my back yard. They were going at it for a good 10 min. Fun to watch two bucks go at it. I thought they would get stuck togeather. They got locked in pretty good a few time.
Crabbing, Fishing and Hunting = Me happy!

Hard to believe I started this topic over 5 months ago. A bit of venting to my fellow hunters....

I had an average year in numbers. However, got to hunt Saskatchewan for a once in a lifetime trip. Harvested a buck up there and then came home a harvested my best buck in Jersey to date.....

Odd odd odd ending to my season however. The last time i saw a deer in daylight was January 8th. I've sat 13 straight sits and have not seen a deer. Yes, you read that correctly....13!!! Alternating between 5 different spots. That is unprecedented for me. I usually do really well in January.I can't tell you how many hunting days were lost to foul weather...mainly 30-50 mph winds...including today. Then we finally get great temps...but with a full moon and snow cover....to go along with sustained high winds for days on end. Today is the end of our deer hunting season...I'm not even wasting my time. 35 mph winds right now. What a sour taste in my mouth to end the season. So frustrating and annoying. I know there are worse things in life. However, you diehard hunters can understand my disgut right now...

Looking forward to packing everything up, getting back in shape and putting the HOG to use....logsplitter.

Honestly, just needed to vent. Thank you in advance.

You are not the only one. The snow and full mood killed my last week of shotgun, and this week the mild weather wasnt worth hunting. Tomorrow and Friday are the last days for Black Powder.  Our state had a big problem with Blue Tongue, even worse in the southern part of the state. My property had quite a few deer die from the disease, and I personally  found a 7pt and a doe.

My buddys lease on the eastern shore got hot hard by blue tongue. 30 on one property and 9 on the neighboring property. PA was pretty good for me this year but season was over long ago :(

That is nuts...they were thinking of closing Redden State forest to deer hunting this year because they found in the 100's of dead deer.  [dang] drought.
