Title: Look what showed up!
Post by: J-BUCKS on December 05, 2012, 11:21:30 AM
Been hunting hard all season so far and seen only 3 deer. 2 small bucks and this guy. I am gonna try and get him before the season is over, but if I dont, think of how many fawns this guy will produce! Give me an idea what you all think he might score.(http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii238/J-BUCKSME/DEER-2012.jpg)

Thanks John. I had this guy at 200 yards a couple weeks ago and I had a stray dog run out in the cut between me and him. All I got was the white flag high sign. Didnt know how big he was since I only got to look at him for about 3 seconds. Glad I got a good pic to tell me what he looks like. I have a picture of this same deer I think from 2 years ago. That is the only time he has been seen on our property. I think he is Prob around 5 or 6 years old.

My brother sent me some pictures tonight from my camera over across the road.  Got several daylight pictures of this dude.

I don't worry about score or points since neither are edible. One thing for sure, that stray dog would never be running again if I got the cross hairs on him/her.

Here's one of the deer my brother has been trying to get.  He fiddle farted around and didn't really hunt during the gun season (when the rut was on).  He started hunting hard during the late muzzleloading season this month, but by that time, all of the deer had pretty much gone nocturnal (as you can see by the time on the picture).  I think he hunted every day and never saw a deer.  ;D
 
What's funny is that the second weekend of gun season, the day I shot the turkey with the crossbow, he said that his alarm went off at 5:30 AM, he rolled over and grabbed his phone, saw that the temp was 17 degrees and rolled back over and went back to sleep.  That morning, we've got a picture of the deer show below going right by the shooting shack at 10:30 AM.  ;D ;D ;D

Well, I have always said if I seen a dog running deer and they didn't have a collar on, I would give him a dirt nap. Dog was about 140 yards and couldnt be sure if it had a collar on. Thing is, here it is legal to run deer with dogs, just not legal where I hunt.

I have shot a pretty good number of dogs chasing deer. I was able to call and grab a big friendly hound that was in the act of chasing deer. I grabbed her and placed into my patrol vehicle. I hauled her to HQ and was in the process of locking her  into our canine kennel cage when my boss showed up.

He informed me that was the second time that dog had been picked up and that I should have just shot it like the rest of the dogs. The dog belonged to a farmer on our installation border. The farmer starved his dogs and let them run loose.

Most of the deer chasing dogs are dumped dogs and some are born and bred in the wild. Two feral dogs attacked my boss and me. My boss killed one and I killed the other one. Please note  sometimes feral dogs are very dangerous. The one my boss shot was a big Chow and the one I shot was a big black lab.
