Ok so I've never actually done a shoulder mount before. Never had one I cared enough to spend the money. I know the deer is very narrow but I like its mass and height. I will not be in this house much longer so I'm looking probably at a more straight forward mount or one with only minor turn. Any s...
| Outdoor Board|| Split beams-genetic or injury. Now with pics - smoked hog on 11/16/13 at 11:27 am|
I need some help here, I've just getting started deer hunting seriously in the last two years. Im far from an expert on antler genetics so hopefully someone can help me out. Got a really cool looking young buck with double main beams on one side. Is it genetic where it will be bigger next year or w...
| Outdoor Board|| Should I shoot - smoked hog on 11/10/13 at 11:48 am|
I've already killed a bigger buck off this place last week. There is a good chance that I'll be leaving the area after this year. I know he is really young and has a chance to be something special in a couple. Should I take him or let him walk in case I come back in a year or two.
| Outdoor Board|| Found my buck - smoked hog on 11/3/13 at 11:34 pm|
Got into stand about 4pm and before I could pull up my bow had a real nice 8 walk behind me at 15 yards. Set around pissed for about an hour when I heard something big stomping through the woods. Looked up and saw a big boy that had showed up on camera for the first time yesterday. Got the shakes a...
| Outdoor Board|| Ethics Question - smoked hog on 11/14/12 at 8:58 am|
Ok I've got a couple of different people who are wanting me to come deer hunt with them. I'm to the point in the season that I'm holding out for a big buck for my last buck tag. My friends are wanting me to shoot a smaller one for them if I see one and let them tag it. They are only looking for m...
| Outdoor Board|| Always check your black powder - smoked hog on 11/10/12 at 9:35 pm|
Forgot to double check that the smoke pole still went boom. Ended up costing me bucks at 7 and 15 yards. :banghead: But I was able to keep from throwing the damn thing at him. Get home and check my powder, takes 5 seconds with a grill lighter to get the pyrodex to ignite. I'll never forget my back...
| Outdoor Board|| 1st archery buck - smoked hog on 11/5/12 at 10:25 pm|
Not a real big guy but got my first bow buck tonight. Might have let him walk with a gun but with a bow at 20 yards I couldn't pass it up. Plus the place is getting sold out from under me a week from today. Time to kill em all.
Hunting in light rain/drizzle has to be the most productive time for ...
| Outdoor Board|| Are these the same deer? - smoked hog on 11/14/11 at 12:06 pm|
Trying to figure out if this is the same one or if they are different bucks. Leaning toward different ones. Also what do you think the score range is on these guys. Yeah I know the date is screwed up on the second pic.
