    Feeling sorry for myself. I've been hunting whitetail since 1960, but it looks like due to health issues, I won't get to hunt whitetail this season. BUMMER ! The deer are fairly small where I hunt because it's considered desert so food and water are limited. One benefit of the terrain is, we don't have feral hogs except in the Pecos River bottom and the hogs never get more than a 1/2 mile from the river. Our hunting area is on the Pecos River about 100 miles west of Sonora Texas. But we have lots of whitetails, a few mule deer, Javelina, and a fair amount of Aoudad sheep, turkey and lots of varmints. Thought I'd post a few pictures of my 264 Deluxe and the typical deer that come to our feeders. This 264 is one of my favorite go to rifles. These pictures were taken about a month before this past weekend which was opening weekend for our season. You guys be safe hunting, and have fun. You never know when you might have to miss a season. God willing, I'll be after them next year.

    douglastwo,

    So sorry about whatever ails you. I’m sort of right there with you, although I was able to get one elk hunt in before the surgeons knife. Hope you recover ASAP and you’re back at it real soon. Beautiful old deluxe, thanks for sharing all the photos. Take care.

    Some great pics there douglastwo, there’s some enjoyment at least in those.
    I like the feed station setup.

    So sorry to hear you are ill and not well enough to get out and hunt those beautiful bucks. Hope you recover and can get out soon even if someone needs to lend a hand.
    You have one fine looking rifle there.

    Douglastwo, I am in the very same situation and have been for quite a while now.
    It’s such a drag not being able to shoot and hunt and do the thing I love.

    Health is so obvious and taken for granted as long as we are in good health but when bad health rears its ugly head, well, then the tables turn.

    Take good care of yourself and thanks for beautiful pics!!
