10/29/08 Buck Finally back

6 posts in this topic

Well I don't know how to put pictures on here but I finally got my buck from last fall back. Got the call yesterday morning and by dark I had him in the car heading for home. Still working on taking a good picture but thought he did a great job on it. I took it to Leonard's Taxadermy in Detroit Lakes. It was my first buck taken with a bow. Had an official measure him and he gross scored 124 1/8 and final score was 121 4/8 Not bad

I just put him on the wall last night and took some more pictures. So the link is updated. It wasn't my first bow kill but first buck with a bow. I had a doe 2nd weekend at 12 yards in a soybean field that was pushing her luck and 3rd time she came out to check out my ground blind wasn't her lucky number.

NICE buck! That's a heck of a nice 8ptr and your 1st buck with a bow.....AWESOME! For some great pics of your buck, take it outside and hang it on a fence post or a tree in the yard, nothing like outdoor light to really capture a great pic of a mount.

I'm hoping to get it out to the tree where I shot it from later this summer. I couldn't complain for it was a 9 yd shot. Biggest buck I've seen within an ethical distance and made my year. Now I gotta shoot bigger or in velvet laugh

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
