    here is a pic of one I got this morning. Luckily someone else hit it. clipped the back legs low and the rib cage was crushed on one side. internals looked less tore up then a gun shot. not much meat on the ribs, so I think i will come out ok.

    Well, after hunting nearly everyday in Nov, i finally got a chance. I watched two doe sneak behind me and I knew a buck was near. Sure enough, 5 minutes later he showed himself walking the same trail as the doe. He would have walked by out of range, but I grunt and he stopped...100 yards away. After a few minutes he turned and headed my way. I made a great 32 yd shot with my bow....during Gun season!! He's only a small 8 but He'll make some tasty jerky!


    The best part was, when I got back to my truck I had a MSG from the my taxidermist. Took 12 long months but my 2011 mount was done (9 point, double patch). What a great day!

    wish we could keep road kill here in WA, it's not legal; they feed them to the wolves at the wolf sanctuary.

    This is the deer that ran out in front of my buddy. He placed a shot right between the ear and antler. I was more excited than he was. Although I didnt get anything my first year out there, it was nice to go with someone who got something. I credit myself with an assist on it too. haha.

    I would say the netting and duct tape is to keep flys and gnats out of the deer so they don't lay eggs and later have maggots. probably warmer in calli than midwest in november.

    Yep. You can put them in the bags and leave them hanging for several days if it is cool enough. Kinda like the butcher would do, but since it is outside, you want to have it covered so bugs, leaves and such dont get on the meat. Weather is too warm around here to ever hang meat outside.

    I use game bags, it's usually too warm to hang here in WA also. Keeps the flys and dirt off of the meat. Back home in PA, it was always freezing, would let them hang in the barn skinned and halved for about two weeks before butchering.

    Little late, here's the one I got with my M91/30. I was tickled with it, it's my first buck and I love non typical racks. I did the mount myself, also very happy with it.
