busted bucks
« on: December 22, 2014, 12:39:52 PM »
been getting pics of busted up racks. an 8 and a 10 both have their left side busted near the base. either their is a bad shot out their or they are still kicking up a fuss. the 8 pt had both sides during gun season. they just can't get enough fighting.


big ones haven't been around. maybe got shot? I have until the end of January for bow. it's a metro zone. need some cold to get them moving. raining here the last few days

good luck to all. be safe. this is a dangerous time of year w/ the snow and ice

Things are in the low forties and really soggy here - we do need some colder temps.  I got out this afternoon with my crossbow, had a smallish 8 pointer in range, watched him thrashing a 2" sapling for about 5 minutes (was surprised to see him rubbing that aggressively at this time of the year) but needed him to take about three or four steps to get an open shot.  He finally took 1-2 steps, but then turned & went back the way he came, so I came home empty handed.  That was the only deer I saw tonight.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

It is hard to tell what happened. Keep after them, sooner or later one will slip up.
