Well, that's a tough one Moosie!

The deer tag I've got this year took me 4 preference points to draw, and there are some nice bucks in the unit. However, since I have went back to school, I only have 2.5 days to hunt. It's gonna be pretty hard to hold out. I'll probably end up whacking the first decent 4x4 I see! :D

The season starts 4 weeks from today. I'll let ya know!

I'll be holding out, again--I'm lucky:D this year as I'm going to Montana for the rifle opener(deer & elk) and then 2 weeks later I'll be in the Ruby Mtn's in Nevada--the last day though usually means if it moves it could be gettin' lead :eek: directed towards it-..chris

Well, let's see. It's Monday morning, it's 0645, and I've already been told that I will have to wait until next year to shoot a big one or a little one. My vacation got cancelled to support the upcoming effort. So...........I guess I don't get a chance this year. So I am going to hold out for the biggest deer I see next year. :cool:

Since its hard as heck to get drawn here in AZ, And I got my little deer 2 years ago for my full mount when i get a lion. I will hold out for a big one.I hold out during archery season every year. Wife dont like deer that much so shooting a little one is no biggy every year.. popping a little one with a bow is pretty easy here in AZ...

First thing I see with antlers is down...unless of course I change my mind, which I've been known to do. There now, that should pretty much cover me for the whole season.

Big Sky,
I hope the first thing you see with horns is a whopper. Are you just trying to fill your tag so you can go after yogis? Or is the trophy potential not looking good this year over in your area? I am going to try to shoot my biggest deer, which should be pretty easy for me.

I'm holding out for a decent 4 x 4 buck. If it's not fairly big, it walks away and so do I. Deer, however, are secondary...I'm focusing on that bull elk!

WeekendWarrior, nope nothing but puny racks over here just like on the video I sent Greenhorn. Hardly any reason to step outside this year. I suggest everyone try western Montana for a true monster rack
Hey Greenhorn no fair stealing my specialty shot. I am trained and certified by the local fish and game on that particular shot placement.

I will take a nice buck...........nice as in bigger than last year's 25"...........either that, or I'll eat the tag. (don't hold me to this ;) )

I have found a few bucks in the 25 to 28" range.................just hope they cooperate..... :cool: DS

I got a doe at the end of archery last year.
I got a doe at the end of rifle last year.
I got no bucks last year.
This year, I think I'll do better on the bucks than last year, I got a better place to hunt.
