Title: Ithaca punches another tag
Post by: aquaassassin on Nov 14, 2021, 08:42:45 AM
I can say this is by far the toughest season Iíve ever had in NH/ME in my life. I wonít be quitting anytime soon thatís for sure. Put deer #2 down this AM with the Ithaca Deerslayer 2

He was corralling a doe in the swamp I was in and being I go back to work tomorrow it wasnít his day. 4 pt. 164# dressed.

Nice deer Frank, I have to agree about being a tough season, I have been out more this year than ever in the past.(retirement is great) Just cant seem to get my eyes on em. My butt is getting flat from sitting.. ;D and the few I have seen were either out of range for a good kill shot or does in bucks only territory..of which there have not been many.

Month to go. You'll put a bruiser down if anyone can, that's fo sho

They do and couldn't believe how quick it was to assemble hardest part was prepping the antlers. Definitely do more for decent racks instead of giving one to the dog to chew on.
