We had a pretty good dog hunt on my buddy's place here in Virginia. I could only hunt in the morning as I had to leave for Argentina in the early afternoon. While the hunt was short, it was long enough for my son to shoot a couple of does and his pal to miss a few. All total the dogs ran three groups of deer by my son and his friend. I didn't carry a gun that day. I was playing the part of teacher. My buddy lets me claim that place as my spot and has been for 30 years. I have probably shot 60 deer from that stand. Its one heck of an escape route for deer being run by dogs. My brothers hunted until 3:00 PM. Total for the day was 25 deer. I love hunting this farm. The owner has two dog hunts each year. Always the Saturday after Thanksgiving and the first Saturday in January. The evening before the hunt, the owner's son counted 50 deer in a small field by the river. If they ever take dog hunting deer away from us in Virginia,,,,I will be one sad man. There is nothing quite like rolling deer with 00 Buckshot at 20 steps as they are running in front of a pack of beagles. I love my still hunting and stand hunting but my oh my a good dog chase is hard to beat!! I am taking my son and his pal to a range this Saturday. I am going to let them shoot shotguns, rifles, and pistols until they are dizzy. My son's pal kept lifting his head as he was shooting which made him shoot over every deer. Saturday I hope to fix that. I am determined to see that boy get a deer during his Christmas vacation.
