Do all your bucks look alike?

Been discussed before, but it's an interesting topic, IMO.

I've always been fascinated by how similar the racks of the bucks in any given area can be year after year. Incredibly, sometimes the...

I see what you're saying jlt, and in general I'm not a big fan, but if the hunter was taught correctly and understands what this action symbolizes, then it's actually a good thing. The practice is an...

I don't have any experience with the Mossberg, but I've got a LOT of experience with Rem 700s in general and some with the 243 you're referring to. IMO you can't do much better. Fine rifle. Some have...

Switching to fixed - Muzzy

As I mentioned a while back, I've decided to try fixed broadheads with my compound bow. I got LOTS of great input here on the Bull. Thanks, everyone!

This area was bush hogged about 10 days ago, and it's about 6-10" high now. So throw my seed out onto/into this grass, then bush hog right after? Don't fertilize until until cold weather?

Thanks.

That's a great testimony there, capnbo, thanks! Has the ground blind been pretty easy to integrate? Have you found that the deer aren't spooked by it? Do you leave it in one place all the time?

Dec 17 last season I saw this buck at 4:20pm. He appeared 250 yards to my west, leisurely walking south toward buckbrush. I've never seen a buck that looked so large on the hoof, and I don't mean his...

What can you tell by this pic?

This is the only pic I have of this deer, but I'm almost certain it's the deer I saw last December, and I think I have his sheds. I know this isn't much to go on, but does it look like a really good...

Great input so far.

I truly don't think I would have known. Given how different a deer's color can look according to season and lighting, plus the fact that melanistic (all black) deer do occur (albeit very rarely), I...

Do you hunt that ONE deer?

Well...I'm in a situation we've all encountered. Very early in season (or in preseason) we get a pic or other confirmation that a BIG buck is in one of the areas we hunt.

What to do?

The only real advantage I see to crossbows for the way I hunt is the fact that there's no drawing back. I hunt from the ground, and by far the hardest part of using a compound bow is getting to full...
