What dreams are made of! Big congrats!
Congrats on a great 8! And to kill it on public ground is even more impressive! I would have never guessed that the buck gross scores 160 inches but I've been wrong before. Can you please post the...
I have a lot of success making mock scrapes and I agree with dblungem - the overhanging licking branch is the key. I especially like making a mock scrape in the same exact location from an active...
He looks like a 3.5 year old to me as well. His chest looks a little smaller than his back end. His legs also look proportionate to his body - usually a 4.5 year old, his legs will start to look...
Congrats on a great buck! Especially for your first one! You were certainly rewarded for your persistency and discipline on passing so many other bucks! I would also like to give kudos to your...
This is one of my favorite mounts. Semi-upright.
Congrats on a great 8!
Congrats on your first bow kill and that is a great 1st buck! Killing your first deer with a bow is a hunt you will always cherish!
Congrats Nelly on a great buck! I hunted Sun night in central MN and saw only does and fawns. Finally starting to see a few rubs and scrapes as well.
These 2 MN bucks were killed by my buddies...
Congrats on a great MN buck! Good job putting a plan together and making the most out of your opportunity!
Congrats on a great buck and to kill it on a 11 acre parcel is extra sweet!
He's really nice! Great brows, G2s and G3s. Love the split G2 as well! I'm guessing mid 160's. - main beams may prevent him grossing 170. Good luck and I hope you actually find out what he scores!
This thread made me laugh a lot!
Daylight saving time the night before so I was sure to move my clock one hour ahead. When the alarm went off it felt like I just fell asleep. Drove to my hunting...
I used to save and sort 1.5 year old bucks but it got to be too much data. Now I start saving them when they are 2+ (unless there is a very unique looking rack or unique markings on a 1.5 year old)....
yep - without a doubt!
I think it's a different buck too. Brows don't match up, the tines (G2 and G3) curve in on the 2013 pics and the tines seem to go straight up in 2014. The snout looks more stubby in 2013 and long...
I don't use it much as a cover scent but instead use it on licking branches over mock scrapes or on cedar rub posts that I put in the ground - then place trail cameras over them. I've had good...
Very nice! Big congrats to you and to be able to share it with your dad makes it extra special!:darkbeer:
Get a topo map of the property as well so you can see the terrain. If the property has hilly terrain, look for where the deer cross in the ravines and where they cross the creek or that highline...
Numerous times I've hunted in sub zero temps in MN and WI. Last year it was 5 degrees with 20 mph winds with some snow on the ground. I had to cross a waist high river in the dark in order to get...
"Trigger" because of sticker on his G3
I upgraded 5 inches from my last year's buck so I'm up to 780. :teeth:
I use trail cams in video mode except over mineral licks. I run 22 trail cams covering over 1500 acres (3 properties). I have them out from mid June to when the bucks drop their antlers. I have...
Good luck my friend and I hope it works out, but the moment you realize that you are no longer enjoying the hunt, then you've lost everything.
He's really nice and I like the way he's framed up but it takes a really big 8 to gross 160 if you do the math. Regardless of the score, I hope you or your dad puts him on the ground! :darkbeer:
There's no doubt - the land owner's son wants you out and I'm guessing he has told his father that numerous times. The main reason you still get to hunt the land is because the landowner likes you....
He's a beauty and I think he's real close to grossing 170.
Here are my guesstimates:
Beams - 52
Mass - 34
Brows - 9
2s - 22
3s - 19
Stickers/G2 split - 8
IS - 24

2002 Toyota Sequoia with 404,000 miles - I bought it new and over the years I only had to put a new radiator in it. :teeth: It won't die!
I also have a 2013 Ford F150 FX4 but I let my wife drive...
