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.

    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it.
