This is what you get when you live up against the woods and feed birds. gringrin

Go ahead, folks, and piggyback on this thread with some nice live buck pics. I bet we can get quite a gallery going before long. smile

Yeah, I think he got a big bump on the antler while in velvet. Interesting how massive that one brow tine is, as well as its position relative to the main beam. Sure hope I can see him again next year to find out how it looks then. These deer aren't hunted. Their territory is within the city limits, where no bows or guns are allowed to be shot.

Here's the guy whose shed antler I found last spring. He's put on quite a few inches. He came in about an hour ago. Can't wait to see him next year, but meanwhile I'll start looking for these sheds in another month or two.

Methinks the cops would be knocking on my door a few minutes after I put a cap in Mr. Bucky here, me being inside the city limts. gringrin

Although the guy who had the house before me said he and his son used to bowhunt right in the rear of the back yard (illegal to shoot a bow in Ely, too). It IS a bit tempting. wink

BTW, at about the same time I was taking Bucky II's photos late this afternoon, my buddy saw a massive 12-pointer walking between the Pioneer Mine frame and Grand Ely Lodge. That's only a quarter mile from here, so maybe I'll have photos one of these days of Bucky III! gringrin

Hey, everyone, go ahead and post your own live buck shots here. Go raid your own archives. Let's get a big ole gallery going to hunters and non hunters alike can look in and drool over gorgeous buck deer! And they don't have to be trophies, either. They're all darn cool regardless of antler size. smile

Here's one of my faves from four years ago. Post rut 13-point buck with a cataract in his right eye. Definitely a seasoned warrior. smile

Video works great too. Moving pics are still pics. Thanks for adding it to the gallery. gringrin

Gotta love it. Late May/early June?

I didn't even realize this was a buck until I got the pic transferred to my PC. This was taken June 2, so he has a long ways to go before he's worth drooling over. smile

Really? I think a June velvet buck in a field of dame's rocket (or whatever that flower is) would get any nature photographer drooling. Wish we had those flowers up here in Ely. I'm jealous. gringrin

    • Little late to the answers, but I switched over to NAP KILLZONE and could not be happier.  They are the cats meow.  I like them better than the Rage I was shooting before.  The pictures are from a doe I shot at 13 yards.  Needless to say she didn't go more than 30 yards before she piled up.
    • The whole reason behind getting a new bow is that my 17 year old son is now standing 6'3" and the little bear bow he has is too small for him.  He likes to bow hunt, but with sports and school activities he doesn't get out a ton, so i am going to crank down the poundage on my Elite and he wants to shoot that.  So Dad is in the market for a new bow.  I can't say a bad word about the Elite, its been a great bow for me.  I have always shot a double cam bow and was just looking for opinions about what other folks like.  Not sure if a solo cam will be smoother with the draw or not.  Soon as I have time, I want to get out and shoot some bows and see what I like.
    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
