Heading out in the morning to hunt the rest of the month...Geez, I cant even think I'm so excited. Hopefully the next time I check in here, we will be on top again. If I'm fortunate for things to work out and I kill something decent, I may have to send an email pic to one of you to post up on the site. I'm sure my phone will do it, I'm equally sure I'm not smart enough to figure it out. Good Luck Team.

blakefrautschi 11-13-2011 06:00 PM

well i got another one tonight!!! all my buck tags have now been filled! He's a tall 8 point with a 16 inside spread and long main beams!!!! I'm guessing he'll score right about 135"

even though i've already got my buck for the contest i'll post the score and pictures soon for fun!

This has been by far my best year bowhunting!!!

What a cool deer rocky! tons of character on him. what did you/are you planning to do with the head?

youngfart 11-30-2011 04:53 PM

Blake
I just cut the antlers off him and use them next year for rattling. Not one for mounting antlers,mainly for the meat,might if I ever get one over 200 and then do a skull mount for the garage. Wife won't allow head mounts in the house,LOL. Thinks it's cruel,go figure!

I am but haven't been out much. This weekend is the 2nd shotgun season. I hope to go out & hang a stand sunday & hunt it on monday when bow opens again. This is a stand that I will have to get in early & stay all day. Deer travel this ridge all day & bed on both sides of it.

I think this will be my best spot for a buck in the late season.

youngfart 12-03-2011 10:40 AM

HAMMERMAN
KEEP US INFORMED ON YOUR PROGRESS AND WHEN YOU GET ONE DOWN BUD, good luck and shoot stright.

I thought I had posted this here but I guess I only put my update on the other site, sorry for not updating on what's going on with my season. Here it goes.

Well guys this has been the year of coulda , shoulda, woulda! I haven't posted much because i've been extremely frustrated. Since I started hunting this farm 5yrs ago I've taken 2 bucks roughly 110" and one roughly 120". I decided this was the year to hold out for a bigger buck. I've had some nice one's on camera & seen some in the distance that would go 130"-150". I've passed several that would go 120", out of frustration a week ago I shot at a really nice racked 8pt that was 120" but shot over his back @ 25yds which only added to my frustration.

Friday I went out & went to an area with my climber that I've only been in twice. I found a tree that I started to climb but changed my mind & moved 30yds further up the ridge. I got settled in & 10min later I see a 130"buck 50yds away and he walked 20yds west of the tree that I almost climbed. About noon I was going to leave & drove thru the farm to check stands & spotted a buck bedded down on a ridge over looking the pasture I watched him for 20min. He was 175yds away & We had strong winds so I decided to put a stalk on him. We had a SW wind & I circled around to east & started my stalk thru some nasty briars about 3' tall. It took me 1 1/2hrs to get 25yds from him, he had no clue I was in his area. I needed 3yds more to have a clear shot. The wind gusted & I made my move but without me knowing another deer had come in behind me & when I moved it blew twice & ran away. That made the buck look my direction so I just dropped to my knees with some thick brush between
us. We had a stare down for 20-30min, so long that I couldn't feel my feet for the blood getting cut off fro kneeling so long.
Finally he had enough & stood up to leave. I stood & came to full draw at the same time but he turned away from me with only his rear facing me. He trotted off leaving me very frustrated but feeling somewhat accomplished just for getting that close to him.
no one on the farm has ever seen this buck. He's a very BIG 6pt, I've never wanted a 6pt so bad since I started hunting 12yrs ago. This is the biggest body buck I've ever seen and one of the tallest racks I've seen on the farm.
Here's a couple of pics, one I took thru my binoculars when I first spotted him & the other is of the tips of his rack where he was bedded when I was at 25yds from him.

The pics don't do him justice, he was about 18" wide & brows about 5-6" & G2's about 10" tall. He was just a cool looking buck & I think he was just old. Oh well sorry I haven't contributed a buck YET! Still lots of time left in the season.

blakefrautschi 12-03-2011 06:14 PM

very cool Hammerman! soo close! and although you didnt get him, you should feel very accomplished for getting that close!

Good luck the rest of the season!!!

youngfart 12-03-2011 10:15 PM

Good luck getting him Hammerman

Congrats Rocky on a great buck! he is a beauty!

Hammerman Good luck getting that big 6 he is a giant.

lumpie 12-07-2011 07:26 AM

Rocky, we are currently in the middle of our firearms season now. I did have the chance to shoot my biggest rifle buck to date. I will have a few days to get out during the late season, so hopefully something pans out!

blakefrautschi 12-07-2011 02:28 PM

Lumpie Nice work! now go get one with a bow!!!

and post a picture of you're gun deer!!!

finner 12-13-2011 10:01 AM

Well the gun seasons are all over here, time to break the bow back out. I still got 2 tags burning a hole in my pocket, i didnt get anything with the rifle or muzzleloader this year.

Anyone else still hunting? Ill be heading out this weekend, the timing of the migration this year should be good for late bow. Last weekend i seen 7 different bucks but none were legal. hopefully a nice one with show itself again like last year.
