    Subject: Great Hunters

    Great story about great hunters. Check out the stock on Larry Benoits' Remington 760, 30-06.In the Adirondacks there was a group of Lumber Co. employees who practiced Larry's method of tracking big deer. All year they would find a track and run after it until the saw the deer. Adirondacks is not noted for high % of success but they are noted for 300lb deer and that is what they got.
    I have a few books on the Benoits and they are really the top of the hunt.

    Jimbo, you can use the "Remove Format" tab to make your cut and paste readable. It's the 2nd from the left when you activate the "Advanced Editor" toolbar.

      I used to have a Benoit brothers DVD, good info about tracking and shooting running deer, and entertaining, too.

      On a smaller scale -- typically, smaller deer and definitely much smaller woods -- I like to snow-track once in a while just to break up the usual trail-watching and still-hunting. I almost always run into a property line I can't cross before I ever see a deer, but it's always interesting when you really start paying close attention to tracks like that.

          Once in my life, I had the opportunity to track a deer in the snow!
          I was blown away at the blood spatter behind where the deer was standing!
          I turned to the left to follow the deer, and there it lay! Maybe 15 feet from where I shot it!
          Heckuva tracking job, huh?
          Texas and Oklahoma don't offer much opportunity to track deer in the snow! šŸ¤·ā€ā™‚ļø

            In the summer the trackers pick up the big tracks from around lakes and streams then try to keep on them. Back in the '60's some magazines featured the group - don't now if they still do it. There is a guy around Rome N.Y. in his 40's who huntss the North Country that is amassing amazing success. Don't remember his name. He only said he does 'hunt hard'.

                How do I activate the tooll bar? Sometimes a copy- paste shows up as this one and sometimes they do not. Not sure the difference.

                      "The Greatest"?
                      The "greatest" deer hunter I've ever known was my dad!
                      He seemed to have an uncanny ability to know where a deer would be or would move.
                      No, he isn't/wasn't a Benoit and didn't shoot a .30-06 and nobody ever wrote any stories about him.
                      The Benoit's are an '06 shootin', plaid wearin', Rem lovin' family in Maine. They ARE legendary deer hunters...but I've never been to Maine! šŸ˜‰

                          I highlighted the paragraph and hit the 'I' and nothing happened except the highlight was removed.

                            Benoit family was from Vermont although I am sure they hunted Maine as well.

                              Another great old-time hunter was Joe Gutkowski, the elk hunter that FS's Keith McCafferty mentioned in quite a few stories.

                              I betcha Bill Heavey's foraging friend Paula Smith would make a fine hunter, too.

                                I have heard the differential diagnosis is based on the mild temp increase up to about 101, not higher.
                                My normal temp is 97, so the 101 rule won't...

                                What is your preference for Turkeys ? I was at a home that cooked both and I have to say the wild turkey was very good. No white meat and very moist...
