Please pass me up!

Recommended Posts

You may see me roaming around z5 this fall...

 

I have great brow tines for a two year old. Please let me go so I can grow!!

 

Thank you,

​Bucky....

 

 

Tall tines are not prevalent in my area... Every year I get one with potential, and every year they disappear by end of rut (presumably shot or hit by auto).

 

Would be nice if everyone gave this one a pass!

You guys spend way too much time worrying about what's a shooter and what isn't. Just hunt and have fun

 

I will have fun passing him up.  It's a long season.

Shooter is a relative term. No way to argue the point. it is what it is for you, have fun

Remember guys.. a "shooter" is different for everyone. One guy who doesn't get out a lot, and doesn't have access to great property might be thrilled shooting a 4 pointer. Others hold out for a 130" or better buck. I personally don't shoot anything "small" but that's my choice. Everyone with a valid hunting license should make their own choice. Keep that in mind before badmouthing someone for shooting a "small" buck. Hunting means different things for everyone! Good luck this season everyone, be safe.

That's a dead deer walking, especially where you are. You are not too far from my z2 spot and the guys around there are not too picky. Hopefully he makes it at least another season. Good luck Bucky!

Well, I ain't overly picky about deer, I look to put meat in the freezer first and foremost, after that's done I get pickier, untill I start running low on meat, you see, I eat venison nearly every day, so what's important to me is what's on the Deer's bones not the bone on his head, but I'm not nuts! A big buck gives me a clean shot well, he's coming home to dinner!!!! But neither am I ashamed to hang my buck tag on a spike.

This thread reminded me of something that happened several years back. 

 

   Early bow season had come and gone without a buck. I hadn't seen a lot and because of work obligations I really hadn't had a lot of time in the woods. I was hunting private land on Round Mountain bordering the county park lands, normally a pretty good spot but, like I said, not so good that year for me. 

    One day a found a scrape line going up the mountain above Rt 31. The next day I had off was a Friday. I climbed up the mountain early in the morning and set up my climber. I was situated in my stand at least and hour to and hour and a half before shooting light. Dawn came and I started seeing deer. The problem was, they were below me and sidehilling, all heading North. It was probably about 8:30 when I first saw the buck. He was a good buck, but this year he was a great buck. He was following the same trail the rest of the deer had been on and I thought he would pass below me out of range too. When the buck was directly down hill from me he stopped and turned uphill, he came walking right to me on a string. I heart shot him at ten yards. He tried to run, got tangled up in a blowdown and didn't make it 20 yards from me.

    On the way home, I stopped at Sporstmans' Rendezvous to check him in. They knew me pretty well there, and after doing the paperwork, they would hand me the tag and I would attach it to the deer myself. So, I'm in the back of my truck, cutting the bucks leg to attach the tag. Like I said, it wasn't a huge deer,it had a seven point rack with about a 16" spread. Not huge but I was happy with it.  Another hunter walks up to the back of my truck, looks over the tailgate, looks up at me and says "Nice LITTLE buck". I was immediately pissed. It wasn't what he said, it was the way he said it. His statement was dripping with arrogance and meant to be condescending and demeaning. 

    I jumped over my tailgate and landed on the ground right in front of him. I mean inches. I was definitely invading his personal space! Now, I stand 6'3" and weigh in at about 220 lbs. Not huge but I'm happy with it. I looked down at this guy who stood maybe 5'7" or 8", moved my face even closer and said "Thank you. You're a nice LITTLE man!" I'm sure it's not what I said but how I said it that made the color drain from his face, and made him turn around without saying another word, walk back to his truck and drive away without ever walking into the store. 

     I mounted that bucks rack on a plaque and I'm looking at it right now. Still smiling.....

I was a big Venison eater loved the Liver & Heart. Then they said don't eat the Organs Heart Liver.  Then had Quadruple Bypass surgery at 35. Missed that years hunting so guys would fill my freezer.  My Cholesterol was always high and the reason for the Bypass never had a heart attack. Then a Visit to the doctor where my Cholesterol was very High.  Come to find out Venison is The Highest meat with Cholesterol.  been many years since then with just a Steak or Stew. But I still make about 100Lbs of Jerky for My Buddies each year.

It affects everyone differently.   Bonaparte

We have different points of view on deer hunting.  But that's cool.  I'd kill that deer in a heartbeat, but only if it was the first down the trail.  But as we live somewhat distant from one another (I think), you / he are prolly OK.

. I don't tell people what to shoot and I would congratulate anyone who shot that buck. I do realize this is NJ and unfortunately for those of us that prefers to shoot older bucks - we are in the minority.

Regardless of what the headgear is, they ALL look like this at the end game.
