Dad's deer from Monday Morning. Spikehorn with 4.5" spikes. The deer walked right up to him and he shot it at 8 yards. He passed on a bigger buck the first week (4pt) but said that he just couldn't let this one walk. Something about shooting them on the snow  ;D He didn't weigh it but guessed that it was between 115-120lbs

8 FEET not yards.

you wrap the tape around their chest just behind the front legs. its the same thing as girthing a beef creature.

Last tag of the year used up this afternoon.  Saw a couple of nice bucks this afternoon, they were moving well.  This one came in at 20 after 4 and stopped long enough for a good shot.  Piled up 30 yards from stand.

nice deer everyone!

havnt been on in a while and figured id share some pics as well!

I only had time to hunt expanded one evening this year because of a good september/october tuna bite. The offshore blow picked up one day by lunch and decided to call it a day and go sit in a stand and it was definitely the right choice that afternoon. I ended up shooting a 135lb doe at 34 yards at about 615 but decided to stay in my stand and im glad i did because at about 645 i shot a nice little 6 point at 7 yards! i would have normally passed the 6 but because of coolness of the hunt i decided to take him!




This next one is a 175 8pt i shot the first thursday of rifle season.  this was also a crazy hunt! i didnt get into the woods until around 4 that day so i opted to sit on the ground rather then deal with the climber.  i was sitting for about 30 minutes when i heard some crashing behind me and after a few seconds i knew it was a buck chasing a doe.  next thing i know two does pop up over this little knoll about 20 yards away from me with their tongues dragging and hauling ass.  they actually split me and the tree i was leaning against, one went 5 feet on one side of the tree and the other went 5 feet to the other side.  then came the buck grunting and running just as hard i barely had enough time to get my scope on him but luckily i did and i dropped him at 15 feet! yup feet not yards! i called my dad and informed him i was out of maine tags for the season and as i was on the phone with him i heard another deer coming and it ended up being another doe being chased by a buck.  the doe again ran by at about 10 yards and then the 4 pt chasing stopped 3 yards away from me and had no idea i was there for about 5 minutes!



this next deer isnt from maine but i shot him this past wednesday on public land in Ohio with my bow! my dad shot a buck the night before just before dark and decided to let it lay until the next morning.  the other three of us decided to sit in stands until 9 while my dad went in at first light to track his because it was our final morning there before heading home.  well when 9 came around i had to call on the radio and tell the other guys that i was going to sit a little longer because i had small bucks chasing does all around me.  one of the small 6 points started working away from me but then started to act funny so i knew something was up and thats when this guy stepped out of the thick stuff! He knew something was up from the get go and was being pretty cautious so i knew i didnt have much time for a shot.  he ended up stepping into a shooting lane at 51 yards and i let the death stick fly! and boy did it hit its mark, he ran less then 20 yards then walked another 10 or so and i watched him wobble and fall over! even though i missed a pope and young 8 the morning before because of a branch i am more then happy with this buck that i took on the final morning 20 minutes after i was suppose to be out of the stand!!



now its time to go by my NH tag!
