  1. Congrats Rob!! Great late season Buck!!!
  2. He hit it low and back quartering away it punched through the lower flank came out cut the bottom of the chest and cut the opposite front leg. The only infection was in the front leg just above the hove but it had not spread. When we saw it last night it was walking just fine so my thought was it would have made it through the winter but you never know. We are glad that story ended on a positive note and my son said he learned a lot from the experience and believes it will make him a better hunter.
  3. My son Cam shot his biggest buck to date last night! It has been real slow hunting for us all gun season but he has stuck with it and it paid off. Cam had History with this deer he had shot it back on OCT 15th with his bow but the shot was low and back but luckily it showed up on trail cameras a few days later so we believed it had survived the encounter. In my son's words I feel bad but I learned a lot from the experience. Well last night we were sitting together in a Hedge row over looking a winter wheat field and this buck stepped out at over 350 yards and even though he shoots his 270 very well he passed on the shot and I think it was the right decision. The deer went back in the woods but stepped out again but this time it was 250 yards so he decided to take the shot and dropped the buck in his tracks it was a great moment for us and I am very happy I decided to go with him so I could witness the whole thing!
  4. Well the opening day was tough for me I only saw one small buck and that was at the end of legal shooting light. I planned on sleeping in on day2 and going to a property to set up some natural ground blinds in hedge rows over looking green fields for evening rifle hunting. Well that didn't happen I got a call from a neighbor telling me he saw a nice buck and a bunch of other deer cross a road into a property I can hunt and he said I should get my butt in there Sunday Morning! Well I struggled to get up and didn't get in a stand until 730 but it didn't matter I ended up shooting what he thinks is the Deer he saw the night before. This Buck is my personnel best I shot it with my TC Omega 50 cal at a 110 yards and it was a great shot it caught the heart and a lung. It was great having my son Cam with me and without him I would still be trying to get that Deer out LOL! I would like to Thank Rob and all the guys who post on this thread it is by far my favorite read everyday during the season!

  18. I have seen were guys would pour doe sent on the tires to lay a scent trail on the way to there stand. I guess you would have to ride past your stand for it to be effective.
  19. I put them on my trophy 1802 and it helped a lot with getting the boat on plane and keeping it there at lower speeds. The down side to them is it is difficult to control the direction of the boat when backing up.
