Virtual Buck Pole

It's that time of year again
for you to post pics and tell the story of your deer hunt.

Let's see the pics and hear your stories.


We aren't hung up on size either.
Success of venison of in the freezer is what matters.
And of course the story to go with it.

Re: Virtual Buck Pole - 2012

Second morning of the season(because I missed my first shot from a tree stand opening day!!), I choose to sit on the woods edge of the field in the tall grass. Its just light enough to shoot and a nice 6pt walks just 20 ft in front of me, I didn't even think that I would get my gun up in time before he ran...but one shot and he just dropped.

I ended up making quite a few lbs of jerky, canned 4 qts, crock potted some front shoulder and have some great tenderlions and roasts in the freezer! Just got my doe last night and hanging outside, so time to do it all over again!:)

Re: Virtual Buck Pole - 2012

Well, I got another wall hanger. I shot an 8 pointer that rough scored 130. It field dressed out at 200 lbs on the co-ops certified scales; 20 pounds heavier than last years 13 pointer. It was a mature, 4 1/2 year old with a neck of 26 1/2" at the top and a whopping 30" at the base of the neck! I had a terrible time finding a mounting form with a big enough neck!

I had an 8 pointer that looked like last years genetics with very long tines walk straight at me and stop behind a scrub tree at 30 yds. He busted me while i waited for him to move a step to the right or left! I took one shot on the run, but missed. He ran to the other end of the property where another guy got him.

But the shots pushed my 8 pt to me, limping and at full sneak. I shot him with my 12 gauge at 60 yds. Turns out he hadn't been shot at all but had been hit by a car sometime and had a broken front knee and a shattered hip socket in the rear. So not only did I get another wall hanger, but put him out of his misery! I'll post pics when I upload them.

Re: Virtual Buck Pole - 2012

Thanks! I get at least one every year, but I'd never gotten a really big one til last year. Now it's 2 in a row! Hope its a trend and not all my luck used up at once! When my wife has the time to upload the pics, I'll post them.
