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.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
