It's just a baby!! Swamp you have to come up the the rockies where the deer and elk are the size of horses. :D No really lots of ranchers put orange banners on their horses during hunting season cause lots of out of staters can't tell the difference. :scratch: dang yankees

congrats, i shot a mule deer a few weeks ago to fill my buck tag, was trying to fill doe tags this morning. i have a 4x12 scope on my 30-06 and i had 2 does come thru the brush at 20 yards straight towards me. they stopped at 15 ft away.it was really 15 ft.knew i would never find them in the scope so i just let them walk into the next clump of trees, where they hit my tracks (scent) and ran. i thought about the "texas heart shot" but decided against it. every once in a while i wish i had iron sights.still no elk yet.i have seen lots of cows but no bulls.
