Doe from 1974

Postby whump » Thu Jul 12, 2012 10:17 am

Whump sez; Notice the fellow standing there by the doe---that would be the Whumpster, 20 yrs old----damn does time fly. I lived in an apartment then and I would usually hang the deer up from the box tubing on the front porch and skin them out, cut um up and put them in the freezer.I bet that would cause a riot theses days. This is at my parents home hanging on a storage shed beam , I had to bring the deer to their house and show it off., probably about 11pm so I am quite sure they were very amused by the intrusion at that time of night. I shot a few deer in the afternoon back then which usually resulted in me getting them out around 8 0r 9 at night. I still have the coleman lantern I used back then and it still works well.

Hey I saved all summer. Either in 74 or 75 to get a set of that Ranger reversable camo.I think it was $36.00 for the 2 piece set. I probably shouldn't laugh, cause I probably still have it in a drawer somewhere :o :lol: :lol:

In the 60,s and 70,s that pattern was about all there was except maybe some tiger stripe and I never saw Tiger stripe in an army surplus store. Most hunting gear came from army surplus in those days or "Gander Mountain outdoors."

Here's one hanging from the apartment beam . I apparently fooled this one with plain army green wool . As an after thought ,that plains Indian style quiver I made from a pants leg would be from the pants I have on in this pic. I was going thru a bag of clothes in the attic one day and came across these old clothes I had hunted in back in the 70,s so I made that quiver from the parts the moths refused to eat.The storage pocket on the quiver is from the shirt I had on. This would also be around 74 or 75 .

18lb gobbler killed during a fall turkey season . I was handgun hunting for deer at the time but this gobbler showed and I turned him a flip with a 41mag S&W 4" . I had also shaved my head just for the hell of it ----I have no idea why I did that but it cut way down on shampoo and hair drying for a while. I handgun hunted for several years and other than driving the neighbors crazy shooting about 300rnds a week in the back yard , it was a lot less trouble than bow hunting but not nearly as satisfying after the shot.

Cool pics! Equally cool S&W!
