I have bin getting after it trying to get a deer this year without much success . Our new lease has a 8 point or better rule for bucks witch me being a meat hunter 1st bothered me a little but I figured I would get plenty of chances at does . I have had to pass up 6 smaller bucks in early muzzle loader at 30-50 yds no doe's in range only saw 3 so far this year. Had to pass up 2 smaller bucks in archery 20yds. I saw one doe close enough and screwed it up . Our gun season started last Saturday and have seen 2 deer all week both small bucks and one out of range and I'm driving 82 mile's round trip. So this new lease has turned out to be a bust Crying or Very sad . I got fed up and headed to the small spot I hunted last year saw 4 doe and this guy Very Happy . My freezer is empty It feels good to put one in it.. Finally Very Happy Very Happy

Joe,
That is one fine looking buck. What did it weigh when dressed? What did you use to bag him? Thanks for sharing the pictures. I like a story with a happy ending. All the best...
Gil

Congrats, SSJ! that's a nice size buck. I remember you being the deer count leader the last couple of seasons. Good to see you dry spell end.

That's hunting. Sometimes it takes 5 minutes, sometimes it takes 5 years or never get it at all...

An honnest? When I should get the opportunity to get such a nice buck, I would probably forget to shoot... I seem to have a thing going with large deer bucks. Does and calves no problem, but as soon as antlers are showing something or someone blocks my triggerfinger. So I made up my mind to stay with roebucks and shoot some more to get the same weight...

I wont renew the lease there next year I don't think any of the guy's I'm in with want to. We will look for another one . If the next one has the antler restrictions and is as far a way as this one I may not . I'll have to see. I didn't think the antler restriction would be a big deal but it turned out to be. I figured I could load up on a few doe's for meat and then maybe get a big buck . Seldom do things work out like we think when it comes to hunting Very Happy . But with the cost of the lease + fuel cost +time in travel+ not seeing doe's + passing up meat bucks this one just turned out to be a bummer. We still have a week of rifle and then 2 weeks of late muzzle loader so I may try there again ( its paid for ) my vac is up so I only have limited time now..
