Some things I can remember, like the first deer I shot on a different day than opening day.  1986, I shot a doe on Nov 26.  10 yrs later, to the day, another first.  Hit a doe with my truck, and did $1400 worth of damage.

Dave - I know what you mean, I remember being on the road this year headed back home to Tennessee, when it was the Sunday after Thanksgiving when I live down in GA and Split Toe and I were very young.

Back 40 years when I shot my big 14 pointer down in GA. I remember it just like it was yesterday....I was coming down with a cold that I had picked up from a highly contagious person who was sick as a dog and I was going to leave with my Camper (it was already packed and hooked up to the back of the truck) and I was going to leave after the morning hunt and drive to Norcross, GA., when the wind shifted about 9:40 AM, from right to left and then a rabbit dog started barking, spooking to big old boy headed my way...funny he stopped about 200 yards out and looked down where this guy named Jerry Coleman was hunting. I had put a ladder stand hunting a white with black mask fox squirrel, yea sort of unique. The only bullets I had for my 30-06 was a 165 gn Seirra GameKing, loaded with 49,2 gns of IMR4350, don't remember the primer, and two 30-06 Remington Accelerators , 55 gns bullets going 4080 FPS at the muzzle. Had loaded the two 165 gn Sierra GameKIng bullets first and then the 55 Gn Accelerators on top thinking if fox squirrel step out I would nail him with the Accelerator, but then I saw this deer coming closer and closer across this 1000 yard field....the closer he got the bigger he looked, picked up the Jason Binoculars 10x42 (got them at Kmart along with the Tasco Spotting Scope, Walmart wasn't even a thought then) and looked him over when he stopped at 200 yards out glaring down in the corner where Coleman was hunting from....it took me few seconds to take out the 55 gn Accelerators out of the rifle and dropped them into my shirt pocket and get the two 165 gn Sierra GameKings ready to fire....I was hunting from a home make ladder stand about 250 yards north from Coleman, that I had made at camp and put up for Dad to hunt this big 8 point buck. I nailed that 8 pt buck early in Nov...I had dragged that stand up and put it on a tree in the area where the white fox squirrel was hanging out at...seen him there a few times that year.....
     
The old big buck did not want to head down to were Coleman was (since Coleman had shot at him three time that year already, once was opening day and the other time he shot at him twice and missed him all three time using his Winchester 300 Win Mag with his Redfield scope on it. The old buck was looking hard down in the corner where the pasture ended and and really did not want to go in that direction...he stood there long enough for me to put a round in his left shoulder. I put the rifle a couple inches higher figuring the distance was 200 yards...it turned out to be 175 yards!

When I shot, it must have woken everyone up because after I shot and found him, had to use Jerry Coleman's Tag on him...we (Coleman and I )dragged him across the pasture and put him back of Dad's Truck then we put him on the skinning pole...he was so big that his hide quarters sat on the ground!! Man that was a bid and old deer.....

How come I can remember all those details that happen 45 years ago...it was just yesterday that I shot him.....the picture of the deer made the 86 Edition of the Weatherby Guide....and who is that young guy in the picture...the deer today looks the same way as he did 45 years ago....the dude doesn't look that way today...LOL...

Wow, 40 years ago!!!
