2012 Montana Hunting

Postby Montana Man » Tue Nov 27, 2012 6:11 pm

Some of the bucks taken off our ranch as well as some that are still running around. We had a total of 4 mule deer bucks, and one whitetail buck taken this year. We had some hunters on a summer pasture and the weather turned bad and I wasn't able to take pictures of the two mule deer and whitetail buck that they shot, but I got the two that were taken around our house.

I sat and watched this guy chase the does around during rut.

This little guy walked within 10 yards of me. A couple more years and he'll be a nice one.

A closer shot of the racks from the two taken off our ranch this year. Both are nice 4x4.

I woke up and sat at the computer and he was just standing there. If the picture is fuzzy it's because I need to clean my windows.

He was just running around looking for does not caring what was going on around him.

Looks like a "target rich environment" to me. Nice bucks...good work.
I have no experience with mule deer, so I was wondering what the bucks in the first picture would weigh?
Keep life simple...if you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.

We didn't weight them, but by guessing we thought around 200lbs. dressed.
