I decided to do my own european mount. I boiled it overnite and it came out pretty good. I will do all my deer like this from here on out. Cheap and easy!!
I hunt in Pinetops, NC, ive been hunting this spot every saturday since gun season came in. I saw this same buck about 3 saturdays ago, he popped out of the woods and went strait back in a matter of seconds. This past saturday i went to my stand about 6 in the morning and saw this buck for about 10 seconds. He did the same thing he did 3 weeks ago, he came out and went right back into the woods. I got out of my stand and walked to where this buck kept walking out at and i found alot of scrapes. I immediately slipped out to my truck and to grab a bite. I got back in the stand around 4. Around 6 he came back out in the same spot. He was a little slower this time around and gave me time to get my rifle on him. He started to walk towards the woods again. This time i was not going to let him get away. I shot from around 250 yards and he ran into the woods. At this point i was not sure if i hit him. I got out of my stand and walked to where i shot him and i looked into the woods and this buck was starring strait at me 10 feet from the wood line. I shot him in the shoulder and he ran about 25 feet and dropped. My shot was a littl off towards the guts. I'm just really happy to have my first buck of 2013!
