Great bucks guys!

Swamp Life, I really didn't even know there were bucks like that in S. Florida, and you've taken a couple of them in one year!

What a story Buckmaster1! Very cool!

I've been haveing a great deer season so far. I took off the last couple weeks for vacation, and have lived in a tree. I've seen a good amount of deer, but they always frustrate me by being out of range or not offering a shot.

I shot a 9pt with a split g2 on Nov 12th. I now hunt dark to dark which I never used to do, but I shot this deer at 1pm so i'm a beliver.now. I just happend to see a doe jump the trail in a single bound...i knew what that meant...got steady, and saw a slight flash of white! Bamm, down for the count.Best shot i ever made. I was shaking like crazy....I just love hunting deer and i'll quit the day i dont get excited like that. I wanted to send a MSG to my bud, but couldnt even hold the phone! Love it!

A week to the day I shot a doe at first light. She was sneaking behind me in the thick. Saw an opening ahead and made a grunt sound...she stopped perfectly. I made a nice shot with my arrow and she dropped in sight.

I wish I could hunt everyday..it just cant be beat.

Nice Bucks!

I know what you mean about shaking and trying to send texts, I sent my dad a couple that looked like another language this year, lol.

Killed this buck on the 2nd day of shotgun season in Indiana. F.D. 190#+. Green score of right at 130. Found his sheds last Spring. Also, pretty sure they were his the year before. Not a monster, but on my land, so special to me.

Congrats to all the rest. Good luck to the, thus far, unlucky.

Nice buck joker! I would be proud of him as well! :)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

I see that hole in his neck too. If it was, nothing wrong with that placement.

Still chipping away at doe control and filling freezers.

I used the high winds to do some spot and stalk hunting in a picked bean field. I used a little slope to belly crawl to within 20 yds. of this one.
