Monstro! The Buck Stops Here at The ACGP

That's him!!!  I named him Monstro last year. 

The first time I saw him was in field 4 in 06.  He was a spike with one antler broke off and a bunch of fresh scars.  In 07 I watched him kick the crap out of  a younger buck by my spot no 47.  I've seen him every year at least once.  Last year I saw him twice during permit bow and could'nt get a shot.  The gigantic brow tines always identified him.  Every time I saw him he was just a belligerent son of a bitch...stomping around and taking no quarter. 

I did not see him once this year and figured he either got hit by a car or nailed by someone else hunting on state property.  I have been dreaming about that deer all year and I am happy that a great guy from OUR CLUB finally put him down.

I am so happy for you Tim!!!

Lovett's Meadow Report by G.G. "The Chairman" of The Waterfowl Committee

The meadow lease is alive and well with tons of ducks!  I  went down by boat to check on the property yesterday, (last Monday).   I can't tell you all of the different species I saw. The ducks were in the ponds, creeks and bayshore. While walking the meadow I shot a black duck!   Problem was it keep going, it dropped on the SomersPoint/Longport causeway. I also missed a few! 
Today, I didn't get out until 9:00am, left at 11:45am. I downed 4 ducks, a black duck, mallard drake, hen gadwall & 1 unknown! It was so good today due to great weather conditions I didn't even grass the boat in. I just tucked her under the meadow bank of the creek, put out 3 stools and that was it.
Additional information, I just purchased a Pattern Master screw in choke "extended range." That's what is was meant for!  "Extended Range." I read up on it after the fact.  It is for 50 yards and better. I don't recommend it for shooting over stools, its way too tight. I did shoot today at 50+ yards and feathered the bird.
Lets get out there and and knock them down.
G.G.  The Chairman!
P.S.  Several other club members have been out this week and have had great days huntting the meadow

Deer Season Report

The dirty baker's dozen (all 13) showed up again for a great day of pot hunting at the ACGP. 

Breakfast was served sharp at 5 AM with plenty of hot coffee.  It was a great day except for the wind that nearly blew some guys out of their stands.  Deer were seen, but they mostly hunkered down with the cold and wind.  Lunch and dinner were followed by plenty of laughs back at the Clubhouse.

Several members stayed overnight and had a better day on Tuesday, followed by the Monthly Dinner Meeting, which was welcome after another day out in the cold.

See you all on Saturday at 5AM at the clubhouse, for the last day of the 6 day season.

Breakfast is served at 5:30 AM! Sharp!

Be safe!  Know your target and beyond!

Youth Day, Thanksgiving Day Hunt and Permit Muzzleloader Report

Matt and Stephanie's Thanksgivning Day Harvest

Bob's 6 pt buck and Austin's 6 pt buck (right).

Three youth harvested two doe's and Austin got a very nice 6 pt buck.

Approximately 25 Members and Guests turned out for the Thanksgiving Day Pheasant Hunt.  On top is a picture of the next generation of ACGP members.  Both are pretty good shots as you can see.

The opening two days of Permit Muzzleloader produced the best havest we've seen in quite a few years;  four does and two bucks.  Bob T. took this mature 6 pointer on opening day.

Congratulations to hunters young and old for getting out there and bringing home the harvest.

See you on opening day of the 6 day season at the ACGP Clubhouse.  5AM sharp!

Safety first!  Know your target and beyond! Now and always!  Remember, it's only a deer.
