View Full Version : Babcock Ranch 10 point

I took this awsome 145 lb 10 point this mourning on the Babcock Ranch WMA in SW Florida. Sorry for the pictures a guy at the check station used my camera and said you took 2 but something went wrong. This guy came in between the rain storms and was chasing a yearling doe and I shot him @ 60 yards with my muzzloader. Great shot but no blood but I found him 60 yards away piled up. This buck has alot of charcter to him and has some oval shaped tines and a odd extra beam off of his base. Good luck to all.

Thanks guys and Getumspike good luck and let me know how you do.

Thanks, no luck today, but will be at it again tomorrow. Me and my buddy both shot at a hog. It didn't act as if it had been shot, but we found a blood trail. Unfortunatly we couldn't track it down.

When we checked out tonight totals were still 4 deer, but 1 more hog had been shot. I will update you guys again tomorrow night.

My buddy (eorlando) shot a nice 4 point before noon. When we checked out an 8 point had been shot as well. I will add pics of the 4 point when I get a chance.

Thats a nice buck. Congrats... what was the inside spread on him? Are you getting him mounted? If so i know a good taxidermist let me know if you want his number.

PM Sent. Yes he is getting mounted and he was only 12-1/2" inside spread but was tall and has alot of mass. Good job on your buck and post some pictures. I love that place and will be back 2nd gun.Thanks
