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.
Boy were the turkeys talking this morning!!!
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!
A few bucks from 2011
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?
