boxing day buck
« on: December 30, 2013, 08:22:34 PM »
Finally shot a ten point on boxing day trying to get through the ice and snow to get what little was left of my wintergreens.It has been a tough season with lots of nightime pics in nov. but little daytime movement until some snow hit in early dec.Since then my brother in law also shot a nice ten point in the same wintergreens and my son a decent eight point not far from it as well.I will be planting it again next year as considering we don,t have large volumes of deer in Canada they wiped out most of the plot before it was covered in ice.I had a bigger ten come in just after I shot mine but I was done for the season...seed for next year.

Gander, that thing is huge!  How much did it weigh?  I love to be able to shoot a buck that big!  Congrats!

I think because the rut hasn,t been over to long he hasn,t gotten back to his real weight but by our scales he was 215lbs. dressed.He is at the taxidermist and she aged him at seven years.She figures his tines were a bit shorter as he is just past his prime.His main beams are very thick. He snuck up on me while about a dozen does were feeding about twenty yards in front.When they ran from him he was ten yards to my side and walked into perfect position....gotta love those kind that don,t give you time to get nervous...lol.

Hi Yari..he was shot with an Excaliber crossbow. I had to hang up my compound bow a few years ago as a bum shoulder doesn,t allow my to draw and practice enough. Our bow season ends Dec. 31 and our gun season is only the first two weeks in Nov. We have a muzzleloader season in dec. but I haven,t tried that just yet.
 The buck only went about sixty yards before I heard him crash.

very nice. WI just made crossbows legal for everyone during the bow season. until 2014, only 65 or older or 'handicap' could use them. i suppose the record books will need to accomadate this new law.

happy new year

Very nice Gander!  That's one to be proud of for sure.  I'm going to have to rework my food plots this year - what brand of stuff are you planting? 
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
