Leech, you need a place to quarter the deer on that side of the border since you can't bring spine or brain tissue back in to MN.

If you cape it out can you bring the antlers back with the top scull plate to mount in MN?  Do you have to show someone ( Wis DNR) your work or is it an Honor system?

Well it all came together last night in the oddest of ways.   I go to my money spot for a South wind only to find 3 deer bedded under my stand, they run into swamp bedding area and I can here more deer get up and running, splashing through water etc.  So I decide that spot is ruined.  I run to the truck and go to another spot about 1.5 miles north.  I haven't hunted this particular set this year.  Get in and there are trails and rubs around tree.   Not long her comes a doe but she's going to skirt me at about 34 yards.   Trying to decide if I should shoot her or not.   Decide to wait in hopes for a little closer shot.  She then hits my boot tracks where I walked in and is instantly very nervous.  Then I here it, loud constant grunting, here he comes from corner of field running right at her.  She bolts as he nears, but bolts right to me, he follows, never stopping.  I tried the mouth grunt and finally basically yelled, I got hI'm to slow to a fast walk.  I let the arrow rip hitting him a bit back.  My heart sank.  I immediately got binoculars on him and could see heavy blood coming off his side.  He staggered about 80 yds into field and went down.  He had his head up for about 10 minutes looking around.  Then I couldn't see it anymore.   I have him an hour went over there and he had retired.  Thanks to MJ for sharing trail camera pics all summer, keeping tabs on the properties and helping hang it in rafters last night.  Turns out we have no pics of this deer.   That's all folks,

Nice deer!   It's funny how loud you have to yell at them sometimes so they hear you, and other times the smallest twig crack and they are gone.

You bet. Funny how things work out. I'm fiddling around by your first pick of spots so you go where you did then end up at your #3 spot and score him. Nice work. 

 

It was a blast hanging out with you and your dad last night.

After missing a big 10 earlier this week I got to ride back up the emotional roller coaster of bowhunting this morning! Had this fella cruising this morning about 8am. He came charging right to the trail intersection in front of me and stopped, about 10 yards. He was slightly quartered towards. Shot looked pretty good but detected a bit of digestive matter in the blood so backed off and let him lay for a few hours. Shot was good(lungs) just exited back because of the angle. Went 100 yards.

I'm not sure, need to look back through some game cam pics. I may have had a photo from the left and thought he was a 10. I had three much older and bigger 10s on camera but haven't seen them during shooting hours, and when this fella walked up I didn't hesitate.

Edit: yes! Back in September. Thought he was a 10 because his left side was partially obstructed.

kim.jpg.b273eb0d05561d69986c015b7872526e.jpg  My wifes first bowkill, second year hunting.  Was a great day back in nov.  She was in stand for five mins and texted me she shot a buck.  I asked her about the hit and she told me she thought she hit good but the buck ran into a tree and the arrow came out. The buck walked off staggering, I was nervous she didnt have much penetration so I asked her to climb down and look at the arrow.  She said she had about 12 inches of the rear shaft with blood.  I told her to stay in the stand for two hours and I would make my way.  In that time she texted me four other times about other bucks coming by.  I finally made my way and we traked the buck sixty yards to find her buck, I have never seen her so excited, still shaking.   To me that was better than all the bucks I have ever taken. It was a great hit through the vitals and smaked the other shoulder.  Thunderheads did the job again. Cant wait for fall!!

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
