Finally Got My Halloween Buck !!

21 posts in this topic

Hello everyone just got back on here sense last Friday. Decided to go out for a Halloween bow hunt and it was well worth it. I decided to sit in one of my dad’s stands that evening and well long story short I ended up shooting a pope and young class buck. This is one that I shot at in early October and had a clean miss. (I was a little too excited I think). I watched him come in for about ten minutes before he offered me a perfect broad side shot at twenty yards. My dad and I have been seeing this guy sense early August below is a picture of him early in the season with velvet, along with the one from last Friday.

Congrats on a very nice buck man!!! Not to burst your bubble but are you sure thats the same buck ? Maybe just the angle of trail cam pic, but to me it looks like a different buck that you shot. Nontheless great buck...

The second pic he looks much wider, but I think its the same buck. Great job on the deer.

I think that could be a different buck, the browe tines seem wider on the first pic and the overall inside spread seem small than the deer you shot. Hard to say for sure.

I would say it's a different deer, look at how the main beam forks on the left side, I see a small sticker on the earlier picture, but nothing as deep as the one you shot. Still, a darn nice deer for sure, congrats!

those are 2 different deer. if you look at his post he says "this is the one i shot at in october and missed" which he is talking about the first pictured buck. and he aslo says "my dad and i have been seeing this guy sinse early august, below is a picture of him early in the season with velvet" which he is talking about the top buck again, and then right after that he says "along with the one from last friday" which is the one he killed.

Thank you for clearing that up Icefishing21. The first pic is the buck that I missed earlier this season. Here is a pic of the buck I shot on halloween, in velvet. PIC_0395.jpg

congrats on the buck. as far as people thinking they are different deer, maybe the trail cam pic was early. it looked like the main beam tips in velvet were trying to look like crab claws, and the pic of him harvested they they were.

also, the G2 and G3 on deer right where the same length in velvet and now. the G2 and G3 on deer left showed the G3 to be a bit longer than the G2. the velvet pic he was still growing, so i think the pic is from august or so.

    • Nope, they've always been much too spineless to receive my vote.   I've always been more libertarian minded, but without the crazy parts. You have to include human and societal behavior into the equation to get ideals to actually work in the real world.      
    • 34 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY today and I am eating strawberries and drinking lemonade, more about that later. Wednesday I did make it to the Resort and I spent the afternoon relaxing. I went in search of Elmer as I saw his truck parked out back. I went up to his room and tapped on the door only to hear what I thought was a loud grunt. I took that to mean "Come in" and so I did. I opened the door and was hit by a wall of heat. Elmer was sitting in a wood rocking chair, with a book in hand looking over a pair of cheater reading glasses at me. "Close the door" he commanded and I did. "Sit" he said and I did in an overstuffed chair in front of the window where a stream of sunshine was pouring into the room.   I sat back deep in the chair and relaxed. I let out some air and sat back even deeper into the cushions and I told myself this is what I was needing. I spoke out loudly to Elmer "Wife call?" And Elmer nodded his head yes. I then closed my eyes and just relaxed, Elmer already knew why I was there. I was almost ready for a nap when I felt then saw a hardback book fall into my lap. I reached down and picked it up and saw it was the new Clive Clusser book that I had bought Elmer for Christmas. I know this because I has written inside the book "Merry Christmas Elmer from Bobby." Also inside the book was a punch card from the Masterbaiters Shop for suckers, I think it was being used as a book marker. The book had not been read yet and I looked at Elmer and he said "Knock yourself out" When I bought the book for Elmer I was going to buy myself a copy to but had not gotten around to it.   I opened the book up and bent back the hard book covers slowly and then I went through the book every hundred pages or so and bent them back. This is how you break the binder on a hardback book without breaking the book. I heard the tapping of a glass on wood and I looked up to see Elmer offering me a empty glass and he said "Open the little fridge" and I did. Inside I found a cold carton of pink lemonade and a plastic container of strawberries. I took them both out and set them down on the little wood table between us. "Well pour" Elmer said and so I did. A few minutes later I was a few pages into Clives book and I was sipping on cold lemonade, eating strawberries in a warm room that was no longer hot with sunshine on my shoulders in a place far far away. Just the way I wanted to be the day before a visit to the hospital   I spent the afternoon and went late into the evening reading until I was done with the book. I closed it with a satisfied feeling like all of Mr. Clusser’s books leave me with. Strawberries and lemonade were long gone but it did not stop me from tipping my glass over my open mouth where I hoped I might get just one last drop but I did not. I said good night to Elmer and went down stairs where Chuck gave me a ride back to the cabin. Today finds me writing this story with a bowl of strawberries close at hand and a glass of lemonade. Not the same as summer but good enough for this time of year.   Sunshine Ray is a little off in his forecast. I did go to the hospital in sunny weather and I got all my tests done in record time. Every department I went to there was no waiting and I zipped right through. Today finds me in the den and although Ray’s forecast called for clouds he missed out on the rain that has been falling. Sitting here I can hear the water coming off the eves to make splattering sounds as it hits the snow on the ground. Ice dams on the roofs are gone, each time one slides off the roof Duncan starts barking and running around the cabin. Glad they are off the roof and even better they have come down when no one is beneath them to get hurt. Ray also forgot to mention that when it is not raining the snow fog moves in and if and when it gets cold out we are going to have ice every where here at Lake Iwanttobethere
