Anyone ready for deer season?

Bad news is he lives inside city limits near the local ski hills.

I have no idea on his score but its big. a friend of mine has seen him in person through a spotting scope and says the video doesn't do him justice. I might make a few trips out there to take a look for myself. It would be pretty cool to get some good shots of him now that he's out of velvet.

I'd estimate it at least about 180, at the conservative side. I think I counted 13 measureable points. Here in the metro they have several city hunts.

Unbelieveable buck, I'm sure it'd score in the top 2-3 in MN this year.

Not to wave the bologne flag on anyone here as this could be the real deal in SD as first mentioned.

My son tipped me off on a video that claims that a new record book buck was videotaped in Moldovi WI. The odd thing is, the video he showed me claimed to be in WI, not SD.

Which should we beleive? It was supposedly in one of the major publications as well (Field and Stream) I think.

I am sitting neutral on this as we all know how things are pirated off the web and claimed as their own footage. I certainly hope this isn't the case.

    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.        
    • Volume wise it cuts the same as any othe 8" auger.  Does the Nils make finer chips than others?   I never saw the issue the few times I used mine.  Can you reverse the drill and push the slush down the hole.?
    • Sorry, but Ive had enough of the indepedent/liberturd fence sitter crowd pissing down their righteousness on reality.
    •   Makes no difference what place we are in or that Stall has scored 2 goals in the last 5 games (you call that bunches?).....who would not want to play the Wild in the first round at this point?  This is absolutley shocking to me....they appear to me like a ship without a Captain....7 games left to figure it out.
    •   I go fishing here whenever I need a laugh.  They are always biting.......well the big fat Sucker Fish anyway.
    • i have seen more useless products succeed, but I can't see a practical use for this thing. I do agree with the icing aspect as well as the battery life. U better have a option to free spool this. 
    • Bearsheet4brains to the rescue.    
    •   Then the bad wookies landed, trying to get everyone to believe they were gods and could cure everything with their magical potions, driving a few totally batpoop. Pretty soon there was name calling and bashing, and it just went on and on. Others that were smart left, and the ones still there continued arguing about what kind of people and things were better, with no respect for anyone or anything, since the gods no longer stepped in and stopped it, except to change words that had no meaning anyway. Pretty soon, it was all arguing wookies and people and other creatures, until the land of the forum exploded, throwing all the creatures spinning  out into space, where they formed their own little galaxies, and soon they all  started arguing and preaching and complaining and.....
    • Here is how the math works out on the 100 holes per day.  First off, not every hole gets fished.  Secondly, I am not just drilling holes for myself.  When I am with my kids or an older person or fishing partners who don't understand where the holes need to located on a particular area I might drill all the holes for 4 people to hole hop.  Thirdly, ice thickness plays a roll.  I will drill many more holes in a day on 16" of ice than 30".  I know this may be hard for some to understand but some people really truly actually will drill 100 holes in a day.  I am a very crafty ice fisherman who has adapted to extreme cold weather by using a portable "flip over" shelter and propane heater to keep myself warm and my equipment from icing up.  Yes, even when hole hopping.  That's why they call it a portable.  Haha.
