  • Shot this big boy friday night! He came out into a hardwood finger surrounded by pine thicket. It was this first time this season I have hunted this 50 acre tract in Granville county. When I went to scout the property friday around noon I couldn't believe what I saw. Every single cedar tree in the finger of hardwoods was just tore up with rubs. I found 3 scrapes within 20 yards of each other and I knew I had to hunt that stand. Well this guy popped out around 5:30pm and I was lucky enough to make a decent shot at 35 yards.

    I have had several nice bucks on a 70 acre piece of property walking back and forth from pine thicket to pine thicket. Most of the bucks were crossing at night like so many big bucks do. I got lucky enough to catch this nice 8 crossing at 8 o'clock in the morning Saturday November 5th. I shot him with a .50 caliber Thompson Center Muzzleloader from about 75 yards out and suprisingly ran close to 100 yards before crashing beside a horned cedar tree that I am assuming he had horned a week or so prior. I am very proud of the buck and hope to have more like him in the future!

    Something spooked this deer right as the pic was taken.

    These are some mountain coyotes that I have taken in the past 6 months, the larger one weighed right around 50lbs, and the smaller 25lbs. I hopefully saved some of the few amount of fawns in the area!

    This is a deer that I got on game camera last deer season. I am wondering what this deer would score. What do yall think?

    For those of you who think that the trophy rocks don't attract deer, this should should show you different. I live in a county here in NC that there were only 100 deer killed last year, and there just isn't really that many deer at all. I have one photo that there is 4 different bucks in. These two bucks are both great deer for around here and I would be happy to see or harvest either one.

    Is it just me or does anyone else have all their tags filled, from bowseason, and muzzleloader?

    I killed a buck last year in Granville county that had a black mane on its back that looked very similar to this

    The bird on the left had close to a 10' beard with 1' spurs. The bird on the right had 9' beard with 1' spurs. Not very old birds at all, but happy with them!

    Yea I live in Haywood county which borders Tennesse, we dont have many deer at all, this has to do with how little food there is, if the oaks dont hit and drop acorns then the deer pretty much starve! The terrain does make hunting out of a tree pretty interesting! I've climbed up a tree early in the morning when it was dark and once it was light enough to see I was maybe 25 feet up a tree and could jump out of the stand and easily land on my feet haha, this makes it really hard to move when a deer is looking right into your eyes!

    Yea I agree with the score, he is a great buck, and has plenty of planted soybeans that my neighbors planted haha. I just hope to get another pic of him this year to see what improvements that he has.

    This is the original Wildview EZ cam. I think I paid 50 bucks for it and have had really good luck with it. It has taken several pics of really big bucks!

    Im going to try my best, if i play the wind right and dont pressure the land I think I have a pretty good chance.

    Thanks guys yea I would love to just see these deer. I cant believe I got these on my camera because I have only seen one or two bucks ever in my county and they were on the side of the road.

    A comment titled: Big 8 in response to a report titled: Large 8

    Yea he is a great buck, but I was thinking more on the lines of 130-135'. What I think is weird is how his main beams curl up in the front.

    This buck wasn't taken near stovall was it? I killed a 8 point last year that the front horns turned up like that. It's a very weird looking rack!

    Check into a place called Hazel Creek, it is in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, and has some of the best fly fishing streams i've ever fished.
