LIVE From The Woods 2019 - Lets hear stories and see some pictures!

Recommended Posts

I shot one when I was an teenager  out in  Woodhull . Had to pull into  deer check station  on the way  home .  Biologist  said I had a huge doe . Turns out it was 169 and ounces dressed .  Haven't seen one that big since.
Wish I could find the Polaroids my gramps took ... dont know who in the family got them .


That’s a big doe!

140 is a very big doe.  My buddy shot one that was 168 field dressed but she was Doezilla.  I agree with others that an average good size doe is in the 110lb range.


She must have been huge!

she was.  He called because he needed helping loading her into the truck.  Then sent me the scale photo.

Fun Fact on does. My brother's friend was hunting stateland alone and shot his first ever deer (a doe).  He kept calling his dad and my brother to help him drag and they both told him no that it was a doe and he could drag it easily himself. He kept saying "its so heavy, its so heavy". The guy got caught up in the excitement and never gutted it! Anyway, he gets it to the butcher and the butcher goes "holy shit, it's a monster". Before gutting it, they weighed it at 209lbs! so maybe 170 dressed? This was probably 15 years ago

I killed a really big one a few years ago, I asked the Deer Shop to weigh her. When I picked her up I asked if they did and the guy says "Oh yeah", and writes 175lbs on the sheet. I dont believe he weighed her but I do think she was in that 140 range. She was absolutely smoked with the .270 and went over 330 yards

We need a picture of this guy before we can determine how heavy that deer may have been

Were these deer taken on drives?

I guessing if your in a ground blind or stand you can id a shed buck? Just like being able to id a button or none legal 3" spiker.

At 80 yards standing not gonna happen unless deer stands still and I have 20x binoculars.  A blind at 20 yards yep no problem .  Last years muzzleloader harvest were out of stands at 80 to 140 yards. This year the one I got was on a drive in a multiflora rose patch.


I've hunted almost everyday of my life.. the rest have been wasted!

The guy or the butcher? The guy had no idea it was a big doe. He thought it was a regular deer since he never shot one before.

Got the muzzy out for a quick look before heading out in the morning. Breech plug was stuck and they don't provide the tool for it. A little ingenuity and some elbow grease and I was able to get it out. I put it away clean last year but there was some fouling on the threads and in the barrel so I gave it a good scrub tonight. Should be good to go in the morning. I wonder if moisture in the room caused it?

Do you store it in the case? I never do that - always store in the safe with a Golden Rod to remove moisture.

Quit using baby bullets. Step up into a man cartridge in the .300 mag+ range

I dont think it affects deer. But it does sour the hunter experience and can be a risk for tracking depending on how hard it's raining. Also be careful with black powder in rain, be sure to tape the end of your barrel and try and keep your gun as dry as possible if not in a blind/shelter. I've sat in some snow storms with the smoke pole and have been able to keep my gun in my lap with my parka draped over the trigger and receiver section.

We cut a finger off a rubber glove and put over the barrel . You can shoot with it on it is awesome

I shoot a tang peep sight, so I have to be able to see my front sight...Kinda limits me to tape...That's OK, though..Tape has worked fine for me...

Dang, most of the snow is gone and it just FEELS like the kind of afternoon that the deer will be out feeding...Maybe I better tape up my mud dozer and spend the afternoon in my tower over my food plot...

Kind of windy this morning so decided to do a little snoop around in a woods that I haven't hunted in a week or so. I spoke with one of the guys hunting it on Monday and he said only one small button buck had been taken and not a lot of deer had been seen. Not a lot of travel sign but in addition to the previous rubs I found some new ones have showed up an there are some really large tracks around. If the winds ever settle down I may take the climber and give it a try with the bow later in the week.

Be safe, but don't let wind stop you.  Most bucks I saw in a day this year was with 20-40mph winds.

You just don't cover the peep sight that's what I do

 

Good fix for your rifle, Cynthia....Unfortunately the front sight ramp on my old Hawken is flush with the end of the muzzle, so that won't work for me....However a strip of electrical tape or duct tape will...

I can't sit in a tree with those kind of winds especially with a climber. I too have seen quite a few deer during windy days from the ground. I have never shot one from the ground with a bow. Maybe I should give that a try since I have tried just about everything else.

I store it in the safe, but never thought about any sorry of moisture it humidity control for the safe. I just had it in that case getting ready to take it hunting..

Maybe try to pick a tree with cover and only climb 6-8 feet.

I would do something like that just to mess with them and maybe see them post it up on a hunting forum or something...:rofl:

Maybe that is what happened. Will the real hoaxer please step up so I don't have to look over my shoulder each time I am in that woods. Who knows; mine could be on that tree next:hang:
