I missed the biggest buck I've ever shot at a week prior, but last weekend I managed to shoot this respectable 5x4 in ND.  It was the first few minutes of legal shooting time on a cloudy morning and I had to make a pretty quick decision to shoot.  I thought he was bigger, but I honestly can't say I'm upset I shot him either.  Tagged out in ND.  

 

Now, if I could just get one to cooperate with us so my son could get a shot.  Three close calls this weekend, but no arrows flung!

Good job Scoot!  Big bodied deer, no excuses needed.  Hope you can get Ryan on one.

We had an 8 at 20 yards, another 8 at 27 yards, and a big ol' 10 at 27 yards last weekend.  So close!!!  I hope we can get back out this weekend, but I'm not sure it'll work.  We shall see...

Looks like a good buck to me Scoot, not many that big where I hunt in WI to be honest and I'd be hard pressed to let him walk even if I knew a bigger one might be in the area.

Thanks Cheetah.  I'm happy I took the shot when I did!  Trying like heck to get my son a crack at one and it hasn't come together yet.  Maybe this weekend...

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4
    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
