Anyone get a deer yet during there opening season date?

I went out yesterday morning at 7:15 when we had freezing rain to take care of the birds and met up with an 8pt for yesterdays open gun/buck season here in WV.

Not a big 8, but like they say, you can't eat the horns. the label on my scale disappeared, but he felt like at least in the 150lb range. No fat all meat.

He was taken just on the left of the barn up on the side by the fence.

Rifle was a Winchester model 94 trapper, 44mag, with a 16" barrel and with one 200g hollow point.

We had the tenderloins lastnight dipped in egg rolled in bread crumbs and baked.  The tenderloins measured in at 13"

mmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmm good. j2

Got a 125lb 6pt Sat. with the bow. Been shooting high all season. He would have been an 8pt but the g3's were broke off shorter than an inch.

Congrats to you Steve. Nice buck. I filled my two tags on Nov. 1+2. The first two days of muzzle loader season.
Took a doe at 100# and a spike at 122#. Not as good as the 10pt I took last year but meet in the freezer.
The doe was going to run me over so I took her at 15 yards. The buck I took at eight feet. I was waiting for a broad side shot but he walked right to me for a look.
I've been out with the bow ever since.

NH/pete,

The picture doesn't show up.

I got a 9 point that is also hanging around. Two nights ago we had 15 deer in the front yard, most of the 15 were yearlings and BB's. the 9-point and the 8-point were chasing the older does.

I still have 2 5-points, 1 4-point 2-spokes and a ratty 3-point. We are alowed 3 bucks and 4 does in our county. The 3 bucks is max. state limit.

I love my venison.

Thanks guys. Dressed out 178lbs. The biggest I have taken around here dressed out at 202lbs , 8pt and 5.5 years old.
Most around here don't live that long.

NH/Pete,

After butchering the 202lbs 8pt, how much actual meat usage did you get in lbs, also, how was the taste of the meat @ 5.5 years old, compared to a 2-2.5 year old?

The 8pt that I got yesterday was a perfect heart shot. the bullet went through the rib cage and missed the ribs entering, and missed the ribs exiting the deer. The deer went 100 feet and dropped on the sidewalk. Less then 3 minutes and it was hanging up to do the gutting.

The 9pt came down an hour ago, and now I have a 4pt by the backdeck with two mature does, a BB and a yearling doe.

I just love this state they call WV.. j2

WOW Steve that's great they pose for a picture and then stick around till you get your gun. c110
I don't have it quite that good. I'm about a mile off the road and 100 yards into a swamp for my deer.
I am always looking at a 2 or 3 hour drag to get them out.
I don't recall how much meat I got from the butcher on my 8pt. I will say it was one of the best tasting that I have taken.
Could of just been because of the effort it took to get him.
Couldn't tell the difference between this and a 2.5 year old. A lot depends on the way it's cooked

nice deer Pete. and 2 to 3 hour drag is right. my best deer in NH took 6 hours to drag out. I always hoped to look out the back window of the camp and see a deer standing there.
