Scenes from Opening Weekend

It was a gorgeous weekend in the Texas Hill Country, observing the 3rd most sacred holiday- Opening Weekend Of Whitetail Season.  

Rule 2: Never point a firearm at something you are unwilling to eat, lightly grilled.
Achievement Unlocked: Massive Redneckery
Had a major milestone- took my first deer with a handgun.  I lugged the Ruger Super Redhawk .454 out to the blind AGAIN, and finally had a deer present itself in range.  Actually, maybe a little too close.  No pics, because a .454 Casull hollow point to the head is not very 'photogenic'

I also took another cull buck.  Small, unbalanced rack, but a big body.  He was a 4 point with a spike on one side, and 3 points on the other.  He was probably 3.5 years old, 120-130 lbs on the hoof, and really difficult to get on the roof of that Explorer.

Everyone had a good time.  My brother culled another buck, 45er took an axis and a whitetail, and the other guys all took a couple as well.  It was good to get out in the woods, get back to simple things, and enjoy this part of being in Central Texas
