So lets hear from the crew about what and where you are hunting this fall; what are you hunting, where are you hunting, what firearm, and which knife?

For me, elk hunting in Valley County, short range weapons only so 12 ga slug, and a Randall Model 19-5. Deer hunting around the house, Winchester Model 70 25-06, Randall Model 7-4.5" with #6 grind.

Good thread Pappy. As most of you know, I am fortunate enough to be on a great hunting lease in Alabama in "the black belt" for whitetails. We took (not me, others) 3-160+ inch deer this past season. The land encompasses 6,000 acres and very long shots are not uncommon. Having said that (or justifying more "stuff") I use a wide range of weapons and RMKs.
200 Yard hunting: 6.5 Creedmore with 140 Gr. BT's.
300 Yard hunting: 308 or 30-6 with 165 Gr. BT's.
400 + Yard hunting: 300 Win. Mag. 165 or 180 Gr. BT's.
4 Randalls used: 4" Stanaback Special / 5" Model #3 / 5" Model #5
/ 4 1/2" Model #4 (or occasionally #7).
I also have "new wheels" to get me there! Looking forward to a great season. Good luck to everyone. I know The James' Gang headed out yesterday (early AM) for archery season in Montana. I used to be an avid Bowman, having met Fred Bear and completed his archery tuning and repair instruction in Gainesville, Fl. to become an authorized repair facility.
After my bicep muscle detached and had to be surgically re-attached, my compound bow days were over. I may try a cross bow but have not, to this point.
I also hunt the 4 day muzzle-loading season in Bama, using a Bad Bull Muzzleloader (smokeless powder) which I got in a marathon trade with GCTom!
Good luck everyone, Capt. Chris

I used to hunt these, but I succeeded only one time. It turned out to be a good catch during the last 18 years laugh

Eh hem, back on topic.
Pap I'm lucky to live just a skip and jump to my whitetail spots. Opening week we have a crew that has their own spots and we respect space. We've missed the rut on both sides of the opener. The backside is my chance; they all go home and I'm "home alone".
I hunt with two different rifles depending upon where I'm going. The Model 70 .308 gets the majority of the woods work. If I'm shooting cross open fields I'll take the WBY .257.
Knives are the easiest part of the day. Stock Randall 14 for whatever comes strapped to my shoulder pac. Field dresser is always Kevin's Randall 11-3. Made him a promise before he died that I would always take him hunting. It's got his name engraved and he hasn't missed a year yet.

I don't have time today but I'll follow up with pics.

Of all the hunting I have done over the years, quail hunting with a good dog is by far my favorite. Even over elk hunting and that's saying something.

Pap,
I have to agree. My Dad always had at least one Bird Dog. There was Rex, Sister, Sally, Buster, Mac, and Lucious. All Setters.

Dad and I must have walked a thousand miles across the old abandoned farms in Wood County, Texas as long as there were birds in East Texas.

Dad used that time to teach me proper Gun Safety, how to train dogs, about all of the wildlife that lived in our country, and about how grown men were supposed to act. I would give ANYTHING to go on one more bird hunt with Dad.

The quail disappeared from here sometime back in the 80s and I moved off to pursue my career so we quit going.

Dad died in 2004 but he was the first thing I thought about early one morning back in June of this year when I heard for the first time in years, that mistakable “Bob White”. I sure hope they come back!
