Wink Here We Go Again!!!

This is crazy!!! I have a 3D whitetail deer archery target in my backyard. I use it for practice with my bow and crossbow. My backyard is a wooded 1.5 acre plot. The target has been back there for over 5 years. Every year, during the whitetail rut (November in Georgia.), that poor innocent foam target has been viciously attacked by a real whitetail buck in rut!!! The attacks seem to be getting more and more violent!

I have taken pictures of the target as originally placed and the results of the yearly carnage. (Sorry, I don't have pictures from 2012 & 2013.) Very interesting!!

Holy Dismemberment, Batman!! In Addition To The Disassembly, There Are Numerous Antler Holes Gouged In The Torso!! How Violent Can You Get??

Sadly, I took the trail camera hunting with me, rather than leaving it in the backyard. I wanted to get video of the assault!!! Maybe next year!!

Maybe you just need to set up your blind in the backyard.

Maybe one of those mean old bucks would like to take the place of your target buck. The older the eyes get the harder it is to tell real from fake.

While it is legal to bow or crossbow hunt in my backyard in Walton County, those deer back there are off limits to me. They are my wife's pets. I have a corn feeder and a mineral block back there for their benefit. However, Mrs. Lineman forbids using Bambi as a pin cushion in our backyard!!! HOW RUDE!!!!
How Rude!!!!.jpg

So, I drive 85 miles to Wilkes County to go deer hunting. The Mrs. does not wish to see whole dead animals or large chunks of raw meat being dragged home. She can handle it coming from my friend, Perry Pitman, in Sharon, Georgia, who processes the deer for me. My wife can tolerate seeing it come home. cut up, wrapped, labelled and frozen. This delicacy is locally known as "Bambi In A Box"!!

For years I was asked, by her, how I could possibly shoot an animal with those big beautiful brown eyes. I finally came up with what I considered to be the appropriate response....." IT'S VERY EASY, YOU JUST PUT A BULLET BETWEEN THEM!!!"

True and this is certainly not directed at our wives, thier all suckers for those cute fluffy doe eye'd meals with antlers.
But at the anti-hunters who are so stupid and blind they fail to see that legal hunters are the biggest conservationist in this country. Without them/us the deer population would die a sickly starving death, the states need the large amount of money we dish out to care for our wild life.
I always find it funny that most anti-hunters wouldn't think twice about taking more land away from our wild life to build a new shopping mall, but they'll sure as heck turn thier noses up to a legal hunter.
