Well our kill season has started. The weather hasn't been very good but the dogs are still managing to put a coon or two up. This was from the first night of kill season. The tan trim dog is a female pup I have high hopes for.

I still love to see pics of those big ol' hounds you have.  Good to hear the season is off to a successful beginning.

first day of rifle season. I used a Spanish mauser I fixed up for my son. it's in 7x57. this particular rifle was originally built in 1927 and someone started sporterizing it and I finished it. it did a nice job.

Nice one,  filling your tag on the first day is always a good feeling.....  until you realize deer season was over in a matter of a few hours.

6 tags,  must be nice.   In Colorado...  one tag for each species no matter what the method of take.   If you choose to hunt muzzleloader season then you can't hunt regular rifle or archery.   If you hit a deer with your car and want to keep it then you have filled your tag for the year and will not be issued another tag.
Makes no sense since the deer are literally eating some of the small towns in the foothills.

    Mike,
           Yea your right it is crazy how bag limits very from state to state even when they are
situated side by side.
           Where I am at they even have bounty hunters come in to harvest deer from
the residential parks. Not so much to thin the herd as it is to prevent inbreeding.

Had one heck of a hunt. We don't have many coon here so when we get on a bunch it's a real treat. Tonight we treed four singles, had to wade the mayo river and climb half way up a mountain. We knocked out the last coon. It is probably the largest sow coon I've ever treed. We treed her in a large oak on the side of a mountain in a laurel thicket.

Tags? We don't need no steenkin tags. We can take 8 deer per year, two bucks (with antler restrictions) and 6 does and we can take them all the same day. No tags so if nobody sees you with it it wasn't got. )L$ Also on private property during primitive weapons season it's now weapon of choice, so your bolt action 30-06 or your AR15 is perfectly legal. On public lands you're limited to single shot breech loaders with hammers but smokeless powder and scopes are allowed. Archery season crossbows are legal and you can hunt with a feeder in sight but 100 yards away during any season.

Everything you just mentioned Hawg will get you put in jail in Colorado.   The only exception being the 30-06 is allowed in any rifle season.  AR's, crossbows, no tags, more than one kill, will all get you in trouble.   Muzzleloader season used to prohibit inlines and smokeless but I think recently inlines have been allowed.   
Sometimes I feel like leaving this state.

Bigblue,  looks like that dog is smiling.
