What an unreal night. Could of got my EAB. Decided not to shoot cause I had 3 big shooters in field 60 yards away. Opted not to shoot so I didn't spook them. Had one at 25 yards. Then they started sparing and I got stuck in stand till they left. All in all had fun

Nice looking spot.. Good luck on your eab...

 

I sat from pre dawn till 2:30 on the opener and saw "0".. Left work early to get in 3 hours Monday night "0"... Took off work on Thursday, sat from pre dawn till 1:00. Hunted Friday from pre dawn to last light Friday night.. 14 hours in  the stand Friday alone and "0"... Keep in mind I have over 3k pics in the last three weeks of these deer all over this area..

 

Gotta love the EAB Zones.. They seem to be decimated in regards to does.... Bucks everywhere but no females...

 

I did not hunt today... Took the day off to go and hand my County Park stand....

 

Next Sat is it for the eab...Thank you Jesus!!!!

Good idea, funny how the nicer bucks seem to hold in the EAB zones till October then disappear..

This what I'm afraid of. Any idea what you think he will score? Here's more pics.

It's a 200 acre farm. All those buck pics were on the whole other side if farm so I went to the far other side. Never see any big bucks over there just scrubs and does. Never thought he would be over there in a million years. If I would of thought he would be over there I would of stayed home. Only place to hunt so I decided to give it a shot.

 

Now I need to find a spot for a doe or wait till oct first

DUUUUDE!!!!

BIG BUCK!

 

That sucks so bad you had to pass him. You need to find a doe only farm. lol

 

What are you one of those frigging big buck but bad luck guys?  Like if I put you in a spot with nothing but does everywhere, not a single buck ever seen there, you;d have a parade of booners come by? lol Don't worry, my luck is usually similarly awful...(if you want to call it bad luck) 

 

Good luck!

Lol. Matty. That seems to be the case. All in all it was awesome seeing him spar with another big one. I can't get that damn thing off my mind. Awesome night thought just to experience it. Any idea age or what he would score. I'm thinking 4 1/2? But I stink at that stuff

Honestly score and age didn't cross my mind. I saw the picture and instantly thought "SHOOTER"....lol

 

Definitely "mature" as far as I'm concerned (which to me is 3+) I know some people won't consider them mature until 4 or 5, but I'm not good enough to tell much beyond the 2-3 year old jump while I'm hunting. Unless they get really old or I can study pictures, but even then, I'm no expert by any means and I kind of know "my deer around here better than other areas of the state because body size can vary a lot".

 

That being said, I think you're right, 4, if not older. I'm also thinking around 130" I almost want to say more like 135", but I think I'm going over a bit. But who know's I could be dead wrong. 

 

All I know is you need a doe ASAP.  Maybe we need to make a trip to see Rusty! lol

Also we try and only hunt that piece once a week.wich works perfect being I only get one day a week to go. Sad thing is there are other big deer there and if they give me the chance I won't beable to help myself being I never got a big buck.

Our farm is amazing this year. I am not exaggerating when I say at least 10 shooters. This place was abused over the years… over hunted, dink shot, etc. We took (4) decent bucks off it the last 3 years and let all dinks walk. It seems to be working, each year gets better and better. I think the key is we don't over hunt it. It's gonna be tough to hold out for the big one. Honestly, I will shoot the first shooter that walks in from of me.  It's gonna be a fun year.
