Title: 2013 Hit List
Post by: MKMGOBL on February 06, 2013, 09:15:30 AM
Just wondering whoís got a buck or gobbler thatís been on their hit list for more than one season? Last year I closed a book on a gobbler I chased for two season that I named Ole Two Beards. He made it through the whole season from guys that were trying to belly crawl on him and even watched them trying to do a turkey drive one day :uglystupid2 In the end, I gave him a dirt nap O0 Great bird that was actually had only one beard ??? Wouldn't have guessed it from the photos I had of him.

This year I started a new book on a buck that eluded my Slick Trick. He made it through the gun season and since the end of the season, Iíve been planning my assault from above on him. This buck eluded guy group of guys that only gun hunted and would put on deer drives every other day. Even as I was sitting in my stand bow hunting, these guys would come in and try pushing right under my stand. Bad part thing about public land >:(

My plan next September is to let the air out of him in the archery season before the knuckleheads get in with their guns and push the area. I was heading into an old stand of mine and came across a nice scrape line last October along an old logging road heading into my stand. I set a trail camera on the freshest scrape. The trail camera was up for less than a week but because I had it set up on a logging road (which I hate doing), I wanted to pull it because the smoke-pole season started and gun season around here seems to flood the woods with knuckleheads. 

As I headed in to remove the camera, I thought I better take the gun just in case. Well I ended up bouncing and seeing horns on deer so took a quick shot through an opening in the woods on my walk in. It turned out to be a small 108lb spike. Now donít get me wrong, Iím happy with it and he actually tastes pretty freaking awesome out on the ice. Itís just that the spike I shot is the kind of buck I let walk 24/7/365 to grow up or for some young hunter out for the first time to get a crack at. Anyways, while giving the deer some time I walked another 60yds to my trail camera and this is what my camera caught just the night before.

Heh heh heh, the big rascal is running at night because of the hunting pressure. 

I see a lot of big bucks at night while at work.

I am also seeing quite a few bucks that still haven't shed yet.

  O0 You still did good, MK. You went ahead and nailed some meat.

  ;D Yeah, but that one is the huge crazy blonde female sasquatch that was stalking you in camp.  She felt rebuffed by MO so she puts all her efforts in cornering you and wants to drag you to her cave for her pleasure for the entire winter.

We have to figure out a remedy for her. Maybe sic her on juandog?  :twisted:

Finally got around to resizing and loading some of the pictures.  Here's the one that I'll be after next year.  O0   Pulled the cards from the cameras over the weekend and I've got 1 of him at a salt lick a week or so ago.  :)

"That coon" hell!!!!  :o   That's just the bravest SOB that decided to stick around with the deer being there.  I've gotten pictures with 12 coons in them.  :o   Bastages rob me blind of the majority of the corn I put out for the deer.  :x

Ya' know, you would probably absolutely sh*t if I showed up down there with a coon in a live trap for you.  ;D   Don't tempt me little man!  I do have a live trap, I do have about 100 hour PTO (Paid Time Off) from work, and a hankering to get the f**k out of here for a while!  Not to mention, I DO have your address.  >:D   That would be a bitch if you came home and found a bad-ass coon loose in your place!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

  O0 Nice deer, BC! He would look great on your wall by that other big buck you have on your wall.

Nice of ya to feed all the coons, too!  :roll: ;D

I had several coons for pets. One big one, he ate like a hog in the winter and chowed a lot in warm weather. He reminded me a lot of some of my hunting pals. He was cleaner and neater, though.

His favorite food was live birds trapped by our HavaHart trap.  :twisted:

I bet if Bo came home and found a coon loose in his place he'd be madder than a Keebler Elf getting demoted to Fudge-Packer.  O0 ;D

Pulled the cards from the cameras Saturday and walked around looking for sheds.  Had over 4,000 pictures to go through.  :o   Deleted over 1,000 that were just coons.  :x   Of the 3,000+ remaining, most were does and fawns.  Had a few bucks, all still with both of their antlers.  :x   The big 9pt that I posted pictures of above is still running around.  Got a few pictures of him.  Got several of these 3.

(http://i718.photobucket.com/albums/ww184/Big58cal/Deer%20Cam/1404_zps9e059b07.jpg)

I haven't gotten pictures of any of the 3 of them before.  O0   I hope that big 10 pt sticks around for the fall.  He'll be a dandy!  I'm guessing he's 2.5 in the picture, as his body doesn't look to be "beefy" enough to be 3.5 years old.  Sporting a rack like that at 2.5, I'd really like to see what he'll look like at 3.5.  ;) :o

Now you know you're just going to miss that 10-point whether you're using the crossbow, smoke pole or rifle. :D ;D :-P :twisted: :roll:

What you need is me coming up with my Black Widow and taking care of business. :roll: :wink:

I've got the crossbow dialed in and cranking.  O0   As far as with a gun, I don't miss.  ;)   Besides, your little stick bow slinging an arrow at a deer, it would just bounce off these KY deer.  They're a heck of a lot bigger and tougher than them little scraps you've got down there.  ::) >:D
