99.9 cents per litre the other day. Way better then the $1.35 we were paying a few weeks ago. Shocked

I seen Ohio in Cleveland are suburbs at $1.33 gal plus and super under $2 too. Michigan I hear is .78 cents a gal. I think I woke up in the early '90s. Is Bill being impeached again haha.

O.K., check this out.

Gun Deer Season (in various forms) has been going on since the week prior to Thanksgiving.  Because of family emergencies & illness, I got out for the first time today; 7 days of Deer Season left.

Now, it is currently Primitive Weapons Season, which means that a legal rifle is a single-shot firearm that is either a muzzle loader, or a single-shot breach loader which fires a metallic cartridge of not less than .35 Caliber, has an exposed hammer, and is a design similar to one made prior to 1898.

Except on Private Property, in which case, you can use any legal firearm.

So.......

This morning, I hunted with an H&R Buffalo Classic 45-70.

This afternoon, I hunted with an SKS.

(No jerky on the butcher table, yet.)

And what did you take this morning?

Glad you brought this up because I was having a conversation with a friend just the other day about this. Is there any biological reason for deer seasons? I had always assumed it was because does dropped their young early in the new year (SC's deer season ends Jan 1st), but then I found out that other states go longer than we do. I then began to wonder if it was because bucks were really starting to shed by now and they were afraid that hunters wouldn't be able to tell the difference...

SC has a couple different start dates throughout the state, but in the zone I live in, it starts Aug 15 (all zones end Jan 1), but there's a really good chance that you can have days pushing 100°F in August. January and February are our coldest months. I wish that our season went from Sept 15 - Feb 1 instead of what it is now. Any thoughts on why states choose the dates they do?

In Montana, because of low harvesting, some hunting districts end up with an over-abundance of elk. So the season gets extended past Thanksgiving. Always a juggling act for our wildlife department, because they don't want hunters out there in deep winter. Not good for optics when visitors from the deep South end up frozen. Wink

I think that states like Bruce's are a bit of the exception, because of concern about keeping people from getting into weather/environment situations that can get them killed.

I think that the primary reasons are viability of the fauns and food availability. Most fauns are born in the spring and summer. By the time that hunting season comes around, the majority of them should be self-sufficient, if anything happens to "mama".

Also, most deer seasons end at/about the time that the food in the woods is getting near the minimum. Farmers' crops have all been harvested, and the trees & flowering plants have long lost their fruit. So now there is less available food in the woods. It would make sense to have this be the time when the herd is lowest, so that there is less chance to lose deer because of malnutrition.

I sold one "primitive" single shot H&R survivor .410ga/.45 Long Colt but I am keeping the .44 mag single shot. Nothing simpler and more reliable than single shot breechloader. Plus Ohio allows now for straight walled cartridge rifles and its my only one.
