I sure wouldn’t complain about a buck like that! What did the “right” buck look like?
Heavy horned 4x4 with deep forks. Longer store. I was sitting on a steep hill glassing when the bigger buck stepped out below me. I had to stand my pack up to rest my gun on it for the shot. As I started to pull the trigger I started to slip down the hill and I ended up sliding down the hill falling backwards as I pulled the trigger and I'm sure I shot over the mountain. The deer started running down hill towards the aspens. I took off after him. I went around a hill to try and spot him. When I cam around the hill there was a buck standing there. I seen horns and took a free hand shot at 150 yards. I got caught up in the moment and thought it was the heavy horned 4x4. Either way I'm still happy with the out come.
nice bucks!Lets see some deer pictures! I know there are some giant bucks hanging in garages, on walls, in the trash can... what ever. Post em up. The MT whitetail rut hunt thread go me reminiscing...
Here's a few bucks to start off.
big buck down!Nice deer, guys. I've never actually killed a buck of my very own, but I had this one hanging on my wall for a long time, and just pretended it was mine. Then I got hard up for some Friday money and sold it. Please ignore the cool porn 'stache and sweet shades.
I hope I can get my first buck this weekend.....
Man, I love his left side!Oldest buck I've shot. Sent the incisor into the lab and they aged him at 8 1/2 years old. Had pictures of him from the year before and he was quite a bit bigger the year before.
