It'll happen sooner or later. I hope much later.Cornfed said:Don't worry guys, I think you and your bucks are pretty safe there in Indy...... for NOW. With all the hoopla and the monster bucks available to your sides of IL and OH.... ain't nobody thinking of messing with Indy......YET. That is, UNTIL you guys get a few more years into your 1 Buck limit and better management. There is a disadvantage of educating your brown & downers to not kill everything they see..... BIG bucks and unfortunately, big buck hunter. Better just be quiet and let everyone keep driving right on through your state. :zip:
I would like to see the magazine you are talking about .... I dont see how the deer would be scored as a non-typical.Cornfed said:The buck's pic was recently in one of the magazines I get. It may have actually been in the back of NAW where everyone can submit their trophy pics. Either way it was a small pic and it wasn't anywhere near an exaggerated angle and close up as is the pic above but still easily recognizable because of the beams and formation. The animal ended up around 190" non-typ, I was thinking like 189 and change. I know it wasn't even a B&C qualifier and yet several tried to tell us that this buck was a World class typical???
KBacon said:Don't show people that crap... Now they're gonna start thinkin we have big deer like IL,OH, and KY.
I swear that was the only big one in the state... everything else is 6 pointers and yearlings. No reason to come to Indiana and hunt!!! :shade:
He wouldnt have "walked" over here, at least not all the way. He would have had one heck of a swim across the Wabash River to get here from Illinois. It's fine with me if people think Indiana has no deer. Anyone who has ever been at a popular check station in the middle of the day on opening day of shotgun season knows what walks the Indiana country side.:wink: However, WE MUST KEEP THE 1 BUCK RULE in order to maintain and highten the quality of our deer. Oct. 1 is approaching fast. If this cool weather sticks around until then there should be some nice ones taken on opening day. Let's get em Hoosier Hunters, good luck, be safe.DocB said:Dec,
I was trying to follow up on KBacon's joke. I didn't mean to imply SOMEONE brought the deer over here from Ill. I meant the deer walked himself over. I guess I need to work on my jokes or you need to lighten up.
Still a spike? I'd think he'd be at least a forky by now... I'd prolly let him walk.. few more years and he'll be one of them trophy 6 pointers you keep hearing about. :wink:I got my eye's on a monster spike i have been watching him for 5 year's.
