Rifle season in Texas just opened yesterday (the 6th) and I managed to get a doe around 7am. I figured that would be it for the day, but when I went back to hunt that evening a buck came out right before dark and I got him too :D I've never gotten 2 deer in one day before, and never had a deer on opening day either. The buck is an 8-point that we had gotten pictures of with a DeerCam a month or so before season started. By the time I got him though, he'd broken off both brow tines. So I guess technically he's a 6-point now :P He's my second buck (got my first last year). PICS:
Here are the DeerCam pics we got of him (when he had browtines)...the actual pics are much better...my scans of them are dark and grainy..bah.

Great Job Lisa, Iam glad to here of your successful hunt. I have always wanted to hunt Texas, but time and family obligations don't allow it right now. I want to shoot a Javelina with my bow I think them little things are neat animals.
it's always nice when things come together.
I'm jealous! I'd be happy just getting ONE of those! =)
(PS: You know you can always rebuild those missing tines to 'restore him to his former glory' as I like to call it...)
Thanks :) Yeah, I know it's possible to rebuild...but I think it gives him character ;)
I'd love to go javalina hunting also, but unfortunately here in East Texas we don't have them. I did get to work on one when I was helping out at a friends taxidermy shop...neat little critters.
Oh, and in case anyone noticed...I've lost 102 lbs since last season...so I'm much slimmer in these pics than the ones I showed off last year with my first buck. I just had to add that as I am determined that everyone know that I lost so much weight...lol.
How did you do it? That's a LOT to lose! Congrats on that, too. That would be much more difficult than bagging two deer in a day! Way to go!
Congratulations, our deer season starts in one week, this morning it finally frosted a little, I was beginning to think it was going to be a warm one again.
Not that I want to get in trouble, because I know how women can be, but why don't you put up, last years picture, and this years. Because really, you do have two success stories to tell, and I will say great job on both. They both take a lot of hard work, congratulations again.
Here is a photo, ( just joking though ) it was was so warm, here in MI. one year that I had my picture taken, in my new hunting gear. rw
Unlike most girls...I'm pretty open about my weight ;) Here is the picture from last year w/ my first buck. You can't tell a whole lot from it so I'm also putting up a comparison picture of me last year next to me now. I've lost 5 more pounds since the comparison pic was taken..I'm 162 now (and a size 12!). I've done it through cutting out carbohydrates. I tried other diets, failed...so figured I needed a change of lifestyle. Worked really well for me :)
I've had a struggle with my weight the past few years...middle age spread gone wild, I guess! LOL! I've tried several diets with limited success. I have an appointment with a weight loss doctor in December, to get the ball rolling for gastric bypass surgery. Pretty drastic measure for me. BUT, after seeing your results (keeping in mind you look several years younger than my ancient 46...), I'm going to give the low-carb route one more try, combined with much more excerise, between now and the Dec. 2 appt. IF I haven't seen positive results, I'll probably go ahead with the surgery. I'm glad I clicked on your post, though, because it makes me want to try one more time! Thanks for the inspiration! =)
