HSO Deer Photo's

Recommended Posts

Great deer everybody.

Here is my buck. I already filled my doe tag during archery, so with a freezer full of meat and no job, I had all season to look for a big boy. He had other ideas and I was done in 25 minutes...o well!

I saw this deer the night before opener and knew he was a good 10. He was chasing a doe opening morning and they ran smack into another guy from my camp who was walking out to his stand late. His presence turned them around back into the woodlot I was hunting, and came crashing through at 6:55 am. I bleated, he stopped, and dropped him where he stood with a double lung shot.

10 point(one broken tine but still scorable), 17" inside spread, 168 lbs field dressed. 60 yard shot, .270 WSM. Itasca County, Nov 7.

FYI I stripped off some of my orange for the pic/drag.

Good Luck to those still hunting!

heres my buck shot last sunday with my bow... heart shot and went only 20 yards. 47th buck I saw this year, passed on some bigger than him earlier in the year waiting for the rut.... Not what I envisoned taking, but im content with him. 10 points, 20 inch inside spread and field dressed at 218 lbs. nice mass throughout, just not a lot of length on him.

he had a 30 inch neck actually. I would say I saw 4 or 5 bigger , and they were all 8 points!! I missed the biggest one, woulda scored around 160, and I hit and lost a 140 inch 8 as well. I also had a 130 inch 8 point with a good drop tine at 35 yards 3 days before i shot this one, but couldnt get a shot! he was a fighter though, ripped ear, gashes on the back of his neck in a few places, 2 tine holes on his face, and an old busted up ankle!!! They are guessing 5 years old or more.

Shed, those are darn nice deer. As we've seen these last several years, they can get to be big-time bruisers cruising around the city of Duluth and Hermantown and eating people's gardens.

Congrats on another most excellent animal!

BC, I was born green and gold and that's just the way it is. smilesmile

I took my cousin to my stand last night where I saw the big . He saw one small doe all week. I sent him to my stand and walked over to my other one about 1/4 mile a way on the other side of the alfalfa field. Right away a decent buck ran across the field. I think it smelled my cousing and took off. I was party hunting and I told him that I was only going to use his tag if it was the big guy that I saw last week, so I passed on the other buck, it wasn't the big guy. At dusk, I saw a big bodied deer heading tawards him, a minute later, I heard three shots. The deer died standing under his stand. He was the big dog I had been chasing this falls. He never hunts this area and I thought I would be nice and take him with me where I bow hunt.

Trigger you are the man for that. It takes a big person to allow someone to hunt there area. I commend you on that.

To all that shot buck GREAT JOB. I love the kid pic's and all the smiling faces.

I have been out slug hunting for a total of 6 hours. I have passed on 7 does (no permit) and two small bucks. I look at it this way, I want meat but I am going to SD for the late season MZ hunt and can get two does there so I am only going to shoot a big one when I do go out but I have been working in the field now and might not even make it out again. But there is always next year. (even though it is killing me not to go out!!!)

Good job everyone.

got this on saturday

Please Remember the guidlines:

1. Pose the deer if possible, no excessive blood, no pictures from the tailgate or hanging on the gambrel.

2. Have the hunter in the photo, keep the sun in their face so the photo doesn't wash out

3. Keep the beer cans and smokes out as well

4. If it is a kid, no matter the size of the deer, post that picture, their smile makes up for deer size in a heartbeat

I got this one at 10 AM on Sunday. I stayed in the stand I shot my doe out of last year until 9 AM and then decided to move to the furthest-out stand, which was nearby. After a slow methodical walk through the woods, I arrived in my stand. I unpacked my goods and enjoyed a nice drink (gatorade). After about 10 minutes I heard a grunt to my West. Not sure if it was a hunter on neighboring land or a buck I gave three breaths on my grunt call. Within five minutes I saw this guy coming out of the swamp to the north heading straight toward my stand. He came to a point in the swamp where some trees grow. I got my gun ready, and aimed for the shooting lane, waiting for him to enter. When the time was right I pulled the trigger.
