Default First MN Buck Down!

A first for me. Would love to share pictures and details but I got to get this thing cut up. 61 degrees here.

Shot at 730am, 10 points, 208 dressed. Pics and story to follow.

Congratulations! 61 degrees is warm weather for sure. It's 54° here now. I'm curiuos as to how that along with no snow will affect the hunter's success?

Anyway, look forward in seeing the pics when you have time. Whatever you do, DON'T ask people to guess the rack size because there are a few ***-***** here that don't like those types of questions. LOL!

To !Snipe---LOL I love to guess at deer on the hoof, but if you have him on the ground just put a tape on him. Only makes sense to me.

James congrats on the buck. Look forward to the pics.

Did you hear much shooting around compaired to other years? Just wondering if the temps hindered the deer movement.

Here's a couple of pictures. I didnt' take the time to set up and take pictures of myself. It was too warm, and I was too concerned with how I was going to get the buck out of the woods by myself.

It's 100 miles from my house. I left the house at 3:30 just to make sure I was in the stand in time. I got in the stand at 5:30am. Rattled at 6:00, 6:45 and then again at 7:30. On the third sequence I could hear a deer breaking all kind of sticks behind me and to my left but it never came out of the woods into the cutting. A few minutes later and this buck showed up, directly to my right. 50 yard shot with the .338 and I anchored him there. Thank goodness too! Like I said, not the highest scoring, but he dressed out at 208lbs. I had never hunted MN before. This was a new state and new area to me. I scouted it 3 weeks ago, hung a stand two weeks ago, and sat there for the first time this morning.

Nothing wrong with that deer! Congrats! Where were you hunting at? I was hunting South East Mn. It was nasty hot today. I did hear alot of shots this morning, but nothing much this afternoon. We didnt see a deer all day.

That's a pretty heavy rack though. I would have knocked him down too. Congrats on another fine buck.
