Prairie dogs are a good reason to "waste" ammo. They still carry bubonic plague. There's been a hunter advisory out for year about not handling them for photo ops. Even with gloves you're not protected from the flees.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

had a successful trip for turkey. Managed to fill both tags with my bow. I usually don't shoot jakes because they are almost like shooting fish in a barrel. These three jakes fell in love with my hen decoy so I managed to take a few photos before they finally decided to move along to go to roost for the night.

Hunting with a mothercyle

Years ago I use to ride a 1999 Kawasaki Concours. It was my first sports touring bike. The Concours Owners Group (COG) was great about holding rallies. While riding to a COG rally in Deer Lodge Montana I was riding at night and hit and killed a small deer. I managed to stay up right and the bike was not damaged to much (knocked of a saddle bag and cracked the fairing). Rode home and got the bike fixed. A couple of years later I was attending another COG rally, this one in the Lolo pass area of Idaho. As I was leaving the rally in the early morning two large deer came out onto the roadway. I hit the brakes and just hoped the damm deer would get out of the way as they were blocking the whole road. Well I ended up hitting and killing another deer. I returned to the rally site so I could clean off my riding suit and bike. We were both covered in green deer poop, blood and deer hair. I stayed up right in that accident also. Again the fairing was busted up and had to be replaced. My boss at work claimed I was hunting deer out of season and using my motorcycle as the weapon. Needles to say I have an appreciation of ABS, and I really keep an eye open for those four legged vermin.

I dont hunt but up here in Northern Idaho everyone does it seems. You might as well forget getting anything done when October approaches. Guys just quick their jobs if not allowed to hunt.

Quite impressed that you kept the rubber on the road in both instances. I have a brother that kept the rubber on the road in one deer/bike crash but wasn't that lucky on the second deer/bike crash. And I've only had one very near miss on my old 87 Venture with a deer, and I went down without even hitting the deer which was do to the sand on the asphalt and the lack of ABS brakes on the bike. Sand on asphalt is like marbles on tile, I can tell you that much.

White tail, turkey, quail, dove.

Picked up a new Model 700 5-RS Gen2 w/20" bbl, scope (6-20x50), and Pelican case this past week. Am sorting out the case for the rifle and accessories and will hit the range this weekend. Have a can in jail awaiting the tax stamp approval that will work great with the short-ish bbl.

(not mine but it looks like this)

Just moved here to South Carolina from South Florida. Haven't even got a rifle yet, but want to learn to hunt deer and turkey etc. Old peoples license is $9.00 for every license for the rest of my life. Sweeet.

In Florida, we hunted underwater, Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, {lobster}, so it's quite a bit different up here.
