| Outdoor Board|| Just got my first shoulder mount back. - smoked hog on 2/24/15 at 4:03 pm|
Just got my buck from last year back. I did a euro mount display for the two from the year before that I thought turned out pretty well. But thought I should get my first mature archery one done full shoulder. How do you guys think it turned out?

| Outdoor Board|| slickhead down - smoked hog on 1/22/15 at 7:04 pm|
Been letting deer walk all season. Finally got tired of waiting on a giant. Felt good to finally let an arrow fly. Double lung at 20 yards. Now time to drink and skin....

What age is it appropriate to get a kid a bb gun? My son turns 6 in February, was thinking about one for his birthday. What is the OB recommendation....
| Outdoor Board|| I need help on the age of this one, Update with rack. - smoked hog on 11/25/14 at 9:37 am|
I have seen this buck a couple of times but wanted your thoughts, I originally thought this was a 4-5 year old deer but seeing a few new pics of it has me rethinking it. So without looking at the rack what do you think age wise, trying to decide if he should walk if I'm tough enough to let him walk...
| Outdoor Board|| Going to be a long night - smoked hog on 11/15/14 at 8:31 pm|
Put an arrow in a decent 8. Still don't know what went wrong with shot. Followed intermittent blood for 200 yards. Flashlight died so going back in the morning. Going to be a sleepless night....
| Outdoor Board|| Age this buck - smoked hog on 11/13/14 at 10:56 pm|
Hey can anyone give me an age on this guy.
His older brother showed up as I was trying to cut my last branch for this view.
Had been in stand ...
| Outdoor Board|| Any idea on age and score - smoked hog on 10/20/14 at 8:35 pm|
Just got this guy on cam for the first time. Has shown up a couple a times a night for the last few days. I'm terrible at this so any guess on age and score.
| Outdoor Board|| How important is bow warranty? - smoked hog on 8/25/14 at 10:02 pm|
Looking at getting another compound soon and was curious how much warranty mattered. A 4 year old flagship seems to be about on par with today's bows for much cheaper.
Or it seems like an older elite wouldn't be too bad.
I just don't know how much warranty really matters on bows. ...
| Outdoor Board|| How old is this deer? Comparison pics on page 2 - smoked hog on 8/21/14 at 2:34 pm|
Normally I'm decent a judging age but this location has me stumped. I'm used to skinny hill deer and these are bean fed pretty much from birth. I let him walk several times last year thinking he was young but looking at old cards I'm not sure now. Any guesses. I can give other deer pics if needed ...

Anybody have any food ideas on how to cook large whole flounder. It is to big to fry in a skillet. Any can't miss bake or broil ideas. Going to pan fry some trout fillers and maybe broil some but don't know what to do with the flounder. Around 4 pounds live weight if that helps....
| Outdoor Board|| 1st inshore charter-any tips - smoked hog on 7/22/14 at 11:27 pm|
It's looking like I'll be going on my first inshore trip on Thursday and I have no idea what to expect. I've grown up in a family that ran a freshwater guide service but know nothing about salt water. Anything I should know about going into this that might make the trip better?...
| Outdoor Board|| Help me pick a pose for a deer mount. Updated with pics - smoked hog on 3/5/14 at 12:53 pm|
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.
