The new "How-to" harvest that big buck

19 posts in this topic

I suppose buying a $200,000 combine to get my buck isnt very cost effective though....

So you know, the last pic I played with it to cover up the slashed neck. So before anyone cries, "photoshop", I did clean that last pic a little.

Cool pics, any idea where they were taken? Hopefully its not another thread where everyone say's "oh these pics are from my cousin's uncle's newphew while he was combining", LOL. I'm just curious where this happened. I'm sure this isn't the first time this has happened. My dad sees deer all the time while combining and has almost had a few in the corn head. Thats quite a buck, thanks for sharing. Too bad it wasn't a John DEERe combine! grin

No clue on the pic whereabouts.

My Grandpa hit a buck years ago with a combine and took the front legs off. He said it tried to escape via the stumps, but didnt get very far before bedding back down. They did euthanize it with a gun they had to run back home for.....

We used to hit some fawns cutting first crop alfalfa, they would just stay bedded sometimes while the mower approached.

It boggles my mind how those deer get caught up like that. I try to coincide my hunts at the time corn is being harvested banking on deer being kicked out but apparently they don't move! No wonder I never see anything. Great series of pics. I kind of want to see the slashed neck photo. Is that normal? grin

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
      Considering the psychedelics are the most harmless group of drugs out there then by all means go for it. This is exactly what I mean when talking about legalization, public opinion in this country is so far away from the actual science it is kind of scary. Heck when prohibition was rocking pot was 100% legal here, just think about that for a second. There is almost no rhyme or reason to many of our laws you are a shining example of that.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
