A load of deer, in 2G BTW......


Now if they weighed over 2,000 pounds that would be a TON of deer LOL!
Like most other hunters, zero deer sightings would be a bad day hunting.But not necessarily a bad day. I'm not working,away from the wife( just need a little break time ),not hearing the phone ring off the hook from solicitors calling,watching Herons eat up my fish. Did I say it's nice to be alone in the woods. Seeing 1 to 6 deer,a fair day and 6 or more would be a good day. A nice big buck in the back of my truck would be a fantastic day.

How many times are you gonna show that photo of that truck load of scrub racks?

Don't think too highly of yourself their Bubba. You have nothing to offer me. You stick to your honey hole and brag about your big buck. I will stick with the real ones. Maybe you might have heard about the ones that are free ranging?

Without a doubt i could experience the same success Doug experiences if I hunted under the same conditions that he enjoys. but unlike Doug i wouldn't be as greedy and arrogant as to kill multiple deer in a WMU with very low deer densities. I don't even do that in 5C where the PGC wants to reduce our herd by 40%.

Based on the number of times you've complained about a lack of deer sightings and that fact that you live in a WMU where approximately 29000 antlerless deer are harvested, your claim that it's easy to kill deer where DougE lives rings pretty hollow.

Do you have nothing more to offer than baseless personal attacks? When was the last time you had a positive original thought to offer here? Maybe your energies would be better expended that way.

Why not post a pic of one of those "real ones" I promise to congratulate you with no strings attached

Sorry Blkpowder! I shouldn't have posted that pic especially since we know it was taken up there in 2G where it's like shooting fish in a barrel!!

Maybe those scrubs need some of those steroids Mav's talking about

I was always under the impression going one on one with a mature whitetail is one of the hardest to be successful at. Today I find out bagging a mature unpressured whitetail buck is as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. I am also stricken with guilt that I might have benifited from zero hunting pressure.

How hard would it be to harvest a mature buck during the rut in an area with zero hunting pressure?

The discussion was not about Doug harvesting several mature buck in 2G , it was about his success at harvesting multiple doe in an area with low deer density.

I am just playing along with your game there Bubba. If you don't like it, then don't start it. If you're going to dish it out, you better be big enough to take it.
