  1. Good Luck John, Hopefully he didn't go far
  2. Ok so now I'm really curious. First I was with you and thinking why not put the left glove on, you know so your outfit matches. you dont want to look silly while out deer hunting. But here you are saying you carry an extra glove out to the tree stand with zero intentions on using it except to drop it from the stand to provide the members here with a few moments of entertainment. I'm so confused!

    Skinning a deer for your taxidermist...

    I process it myself. I think it would be difficult to have have the Taxi cape it then bring the body back home to process. If who I select even will do that as a part as their service.

    2018 HuntingNY Gun Harvest Thread

    I posted this in the live from the woods thread but wanted to put it in its proper place here. Let me start off by saying in my 21ish years of hunting I’ve never seen a buck this big alive in the woods. My biggest buck to date is a small racked 7 pointer. I was already having a pretty decent opening day. Saw a doe early then a spike around 12 and another small 4 pointer around 12:30-12:45. Things went quiet around 1pm. Around 2:30 I decided to have a pee then get out my lucky skittles and settle in for the last 2 hours of the day. Right around 3 I hear a few shots go off 200 or so yards away followed by very heavy crashing. I figured what ever the deer was is going down in some thick nasty stuff and I’d be helping drag out a deer after sunset. Just in case though I grabbed the gun stood up and waited. That’s when the surprise kicked in. This buck with a big rack comes smashing through the thicket with a broken rear leg. At this point a completely forget about the rack and settle the gun on the vitals and follow him waiting for him to hit my shooting lane. Now he’s not moving very fast because of the broken leg. He gets through my first shooting lane as I still follow him cross hairs on the vitals. He gets into my second lane and I squeeze the trigger. He folds up in 20 yards head facing away from me. That’s when I remembered Holy Crap! This dude had a rack on him and a big one! When I finally got down to check him out I was in complete shock! In fact I think I still am!

    A scoring challenge.....

    I'm with you on the score Rob. I personally don't care about the score but I will take a tape to mine just to get an idea of what it is. I want to do this for 2 reasons. 1 is pure curiosity on what the score will be because maybe I will understand the scoring system better and will be more knowledgeable when people bring it up. the second reason being I know people will ask me what it scored when I show them the picture or when they see the mount. I've already had my hunting buddies guessing anywhere from high 120's to low 130's. No matter the score it's a record buck!

    Man I have been stressing over this way to much. If I knew it was going to cause me this much stress I would have never shot him!!!!! Kidding of course. Luckily for me Treeguy is stopping over tonight and he's going to walk me through the process. I will feel so much better once the cape is off and it's back to being just a deer for me to process. Next step is to decide on a Taxidermist. I have never needed one and of course everyone has their guy that they recommend. I'm pretty sure I know who i'm going with but man is this hard work. Oh god I also have to decide on a pose for him as well. Lol.
  7. This is the exact type of shenanigans I like to get myself involved in! I need pics to satisfy my craving.

  9. Yep. He thought he made a good shot on the first one. His only thought was the bullet hit a branch on its way Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How hard is this to do yourself? Just the cape part. A friend has done it before for himself and is willing to walk me through it. I love learning this stuff but am honestly worried it will get messed up even though he’s a very knowledgeable person. I always process my own deer which is why I’m leaning on doing the cape myself.

  13. On top of not sleeping well I hunt with one of my best friends as well as a great group of guys. I’ll be happy to harvest a doe today and pumped if my friends gets something. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Couldn’t sleep so what else was I to do. Depending on how the day goes it might just be a half day instead of a full. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
