I used to be an avid hunter most of my life. Now all I do is watch the game. I have a lot of deer and turkey on my place and its not unusual to have to wait for the darn deer to get out of your front yard or out of the driveway at night, just so you can get in the yard. They know they are safe and not in danger of getting shot for the most part and have become pretty darn accepting of me and the wife. The turkeys still keep a pretty decent distance from humans though. I have seensome nice 10 pointers over the last couple of years in my yard. I have friends chomping at the bit to hunt here, but I don't allow it. We are allowed a deer a day, and in my county buck or does are legal all season long...no permits required for a doe. Other counties have limitatiins on does, but Alabama has the deer a day law. There were times I would just get tired of shooting them. I would start off in October using the bow, or black powder rifle, then switch to high powered rifle or handgun when the acutal firearms season came in in November, and hunt until the season ended in Jan 31. We do have a heap of deer i Alabama. Not a lot of what I would say overly large deer but there are some nice monsters out there.
