Biggest deer I have ever gotten. Killed him Monday evening. Did not find him until Tuesday. Shot him at 320 yards with 308. The picture of him standing was taken 2 hours before I got him. The camera belonged to another hunter and is about 600 yards from where I shot him.
Killed this nice 8 point in Moore county on a late morning hunt when the moon was underfoot called him in and he was ready for a fight. Took him down with my 270 and dropped him right where he was standing. He weighed in at 164 and scored 141 3/8
200 lb 10 point. Typical 5 x 5. This deer came in at 6:30 am while hunting with my wife. He gave me a broadside shot at about 50 yards. After the shot I waited about an hour and found a little blood so decided to back out for 4 hours. When I came back my wife tracked light blood trail for about 75 yards where he was laying. Truly blessed to have taken such a beautiful animal and the best part is....
I had been hunting grandpa since I got him on trail cam in late October he would never show his self in day light then finally on 11/04/15 after sitting all day in the rain around 5:00 there was 3 does and a small 6 point also a 4 point on the corn pile around 5:15 they got spooked I thought it was some bear's I had been seeing and then I heard what I thought was a buck rubbing in....
So I've been doing quite a bit of duck hunting and there have been several occasions that deer have walked up on us close enough to shoot but I have never taken a shot due to uncertainty. My question is to everyone... is it legal to shoot a deer with steel shot while duck hunting?
Haven't had much rut activity, but as the week moves on and it gets colder, I expect the rut to pick up. Many rubs and scrapes. Seen some really big does, but not any bucks chasing. I have waited to see if a buck would walk in. not a buck in sight. Have some really nice ones on the camera.
John Mercer harvested a monster Whitetail from Wayne County NC, opening day of blackpowder season, it has14 total points, it gross green scores 183.75 .possibly the largest buck legally taken in the county.
I was blessed to harvest this Wilson county buck with my black powder gun on the first Tuesday of the season. After getting many trail cams of this deer since August I was finally able to shoot him yesterday. He was a 4.5 year old 8 pointer last year and blew into a nice mature 5.5 year old 10 pointer this year. My wife Mollie and I had hunted him a couple of times during bow season seeing him....
Here is a sequence of a doe sensing danger, blowing the alarm and her snot and breath spraying into the air and hanging like a cloud from a steam engine. I think it's a pretty cool montage of something we all hate to hear :).
About this time last weekend, on opening day of bow season, I shot my biggest buck to date. I heard him and another buck sparring in the woods before stepping out into the field I was hunting. I shot him at 20 yards slightly quarting towards me with my Barnett crossbow. He ran about 70 yards and then slid down a gully into the creek.
Thanks to my hubby for watching our two little ones and....
Have been getting this group of bucks coming in on camera since late July, was hoping at a chance on the big 11, but opening day i had a chance on the 8 in velvet. My first ever buck in velvet. He came in with only 10 minutes left of shooting light, with a herd of does and smaller bucks in the corn pile. I shot him at 23 yards. By time i got down the tree it was dark. Couldnt find my arrow, or....
My brother lives in Supply, NC and wants me to come down from central NC to hunt with him because he has some nice activity at his hunting spots. We can skin it and clean it, but he wants sausage and ground meat made out of some of our kill (if we get it). Anyone know the area enough to where we can get the deer processed? If they do taxidermy as well, that would be good,....
