Leech, you need a place to quarter the deer on that side of the border since you can't bring spine or brain tissue back in to MN.

If you cape it out can you bring the antlers back with the top scull plate to mount in MN?  Do you have to show someone ( Wis DNR) your work or is it an Honor system?

Nice deer!   It's funny how loud you have to yell at them sometimes so they hear you, and other times the smallest twig crack and they are gone.

Well it all came together last night in the oddest of ways.   I go to my money spot for a South wind only to find 3 deer bedded under my stand, they run into swamp bedding area and I can here more deer get up and running, splashing through water etc.  So I decide that spot is ruined.  I run to the truck and go to another spot about 1.5 miles north.  I haven't hunted this particular set this year.  Get in and there are trails and rubs around tree.   Not long her comes a doe but she's going to skirt me at about 34 yards.   Trying to decide if I should shoot her or not.   Decide to wait in hopes for a little closer shot.  She then hits my boot tracks where I walked in and is instantly very nervous.  Then I here it, loud constant grunting, here he comes from corner of field running right at her.  She bolts as he nears, but bolts right to me, he follows, never stopping.  I tried the mouth grunt and finally basically yelled, I got hI'm to slow to a fast walk.  I let the arrow rip hitting him a bit back.  My heart sank.  I immediately got binoculars on him and could see heavy blood coming off his side.  He staggered about 80 yds into field and went down.  He had his head up for about 10 minutes looking around.  Then I couldn't see it anymore.   I have him an hour went over there and he had retired.  Thanks to MJ for sharing trail camera pics all summer, keeping tabs on the properties and helping hang it in rafters last night.  Turns out we have no pics of this deer.   That's all folks,

You bet. Funny how things work out. I'm fiddling around by your first pick of spots so you go where you did then end up at your #3 spot and score him. Nice work. 

 

It was a blast hanging out with you and your dad last night.

After missing a big 10 earlier this week I got to ride back up the emotional roller coaster of bowhunting this morning! Had this fella cruising this morning about 8am. He came charging right to the trail intersection in front of me and stopped, about 10 yards. He was slightly quartered towards. Shot looked pretty good but detected a bit of digestive matter in the blood so backed off and let him lay for a few hours. Shot was good(lungs) just exited back because of the angle. Went 100 yards.

I'm not sure, need to look back through some game cam pics. I may have had a photo from the left and thought he was a 10. I had three much older and bigger 10s on camera but haven't seen them during shooting hours, and when this fella walked up I didn't hesitate.

Edit: yes! Back in September. Thought he was a 10 because his left side was partially obstructed.

kim.jpg.b273eb0d05561d69986c015b7872526e.jpg  My wifes first bowkill, second year hunting.  Was a great day back in nov.  She was in stand for five mins and texted me she shot a buck.  I asked her about the hit and she told me she thought she hit good but the buck ran into a tree and the arrow came out. The buck walked off staggering, I was nervous she didnt have much penetration so I asked her to climb down and look at the arrow.  She said she had about 12 inches of the rear shaft with blood.  I told her to stay in the stand for two hours and I would make my way.  In that time she texted me four other times about other bucks coming by.  I finally made my way and we traked the buck sixty yards to find her buck, I have never seen her so excited, still shaking.   To me that was better than all the bucks I have ever taken. It was a great hit through the vitals and smaked the other shoulder.  Thunderheads did the job again. Cant wait for fall!!

    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.   
    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
    • Not so Young dumb and full of............   Anymore?  😜
    • I think Negan should be in a cell that has a couple walkers in a cell on each side. lol
    • So, is Butler playing in the season opener? Has he even practiced, other than that one infamous time?
    • 2 episodes in, and I don’t have much of anything to complain about. Not great episodes by any means, but not bad either.
    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
