Yea no way I'd be leaving the heart or the tenderloins. That is just wasteful!!

 

:sorry:

I'm sure we all leave behind pieces that others may feel are wasteful as well. To each their own. I have no interest in eating organs, but removing the tenderloins is very simple without gutting. This video shows it much better and is how we do it. (8:14)

Headed in shortly just walked in from work. Taking climber in close to where I've seen a nice buck two times the last few sits. 
Are you hunting 9h.....how much snow did you get?

The biz prediction should include Cabin Fever soon.  Hes been putting in some serious time and posting about not seeing much of anything. Luck has to change. Good luck everyone.  I am done until Saturday.

I'm 2 for 2 in the past 2 days. I can't just start guessing. I need to review all posts and get that gut feeling before making a prediction. Remember, we have Rob's 41st sit pending prediction later this week.

NO IT DOESN'T.
[mention=762]Chef[/mention] Please confirm that my prediction was before your sighting?

His prediction was before my Sighting and he had no communication with me outside of this thread on the matter

you harvest the tendons and use them to make a longbow?? would love to see vid of this!

search on "sinew backed bows". The tendons on large game animals are dried, shredded and applied to the back of a wooden "self bow" using hide glue - pre-compound commercial bows used fiberglass. It's a very fun hobby and lots of books out there. Woods like osage orange, walnut etc. The trick is to shave the back down to one growth ring only. I used to guide in CO so had access to lots of elk tendons but can buy them online.

Back out...of course there were three sets of tracks in my tracks heading in after my morning hunt...hopefully they will be back!

(squirrelwhisperer, i always keep the sinew...back sinew for sewing/tying fletching and leg sinew for backing my bows...I’ll post a pict of my last backed bow later).

Well here is he folks! Only went about fifty yards from where my buddy shot him. An absolute hammer with 15 scorable points and grossing out at 173. I actually know this buck well and have his shed from last year which I found about a half mile from where he was shot. I’ve got a ton of trail cam pics of him last year too. He was about 140 and we passed him because we thought he was 3. Looking at him this year I’d say he’s five now so must have been four last year. But boy are we happy we didn’t shoot him, what a jump! I told my buddy he owes me a gross booner now since I set the stand yesterday for this buck and was the one to find him when I almost stepped on him haha. But he’s taught me most everything I know about killing big bucks so glad to pay some of that back

Throwing in the towel. Grid searched an area for about 4 hours. Kept my search lines close, almost over lapping. 2 to 10 inches of powder on everything. Saw plenty of tracks, but none that would have indicated a badly injured deer. This sucks.

Sorry to hear man. I was hoping you’d find it.

So interesting end to the day. I watched that spike make a scrape about 80 yards out in between chase sessions. With 15 min in legal light I see another deer approaching the same area. He gets to the scrape and does his thing for a while, at this point I see hes big. Get the binos on him and immediately have my heart racing. The first sighting of the buck with sticker off the g2. I believe him to be a 12 or possibly a 13 point total. He was on the scrape for all 15 min of light! I had to wait it out and watch him stroll by around 520 at 30 yards. Yet another one I can say hell of a hunt! I have one bow hunt left on Thursday night just need to capitalize.

On my hunt tonight I had a doe run under my stand twice with her tongue hanging out but no other deer around, strangest thing. Then at last light 6 flat tops came out of the bedding area and headed towards the neighbor's corn, no bucks with them either.
