  1. How big does a buck need to be for you to qualify it as big? I'm talking about NJ. Does it need to be a 150" or better? Does it need to be a certain weight or age? For me if it gets me excited enough it probable gets shot. I have shot big deer with small antlers and small deer with big antlers.

    Mushroom experts....is this chicken of the woods ? Edible?

    Those are much better eating than the chickens you found yesterday. I made soup yesterday and it was excellent. Enjoy.

    Gave this Buck a Pass

    I pulled some camera cards the other day and had a picture of this buck at one of my stands. I decided to sit there Sunday night to try and get a better look. Got set up about 4:00 and settled in. Had a fox come right under me after only 5 minutes. About 10 minutes later a doe strolls in and feeds under and by me for about a half hour. She eventually moved off, and 10 minutes later a yearling 6 pt came in the same area and did the same thing. They were feeding on some type of broad leaf weed right in front of the camera. I don't have any bait out. A couple minutes later I see trees thrashing across the creek from me. It's thick in there and I couldn't tell what was doing it, then this 7 pt made his way over the same way other 2 deer did. I had him for a perfect broadside shot at 25 yds, but I decided to hold off. I haven't seen anything better yet, but there's usually one at this property. I guessing he's a 3 yr old. My buddy told me he saw 2 good ones. This deer came within 5 yds and I snapped a few pictures. He then fed over by the 6 pt for an hour or so and was eventually joined by another smaller 7pt. I saw 4 more does, and another came within 5 yards. Overall it was a great hunt and I never drew back. I must be getting old because he never would have walked a few years ago.

    Why Hunt Big Bucks?

    Why stop at 150"?

    Why Hunt Big Bucks?

    Much easier. I have an old doe at one of the properties I hunt that I will be just as happy to get. She picked me off a couple of times.
