We were there as well. Had an awesome Saturday morning hunt. Between my buddy and I we saw 16 deer before 9am. I saw all does and yearlings but chose to pass. My buddy had a good buck run past him but couldn't get him to stop. He did eventually take a doe.

Thank yíall. Itís very rewarding when we find a spot virtually untouched by other hunters through hard scouting, walking many miles, making a few trips to learn in from bow opener to rut and we all harvest.

Iíve gotten to the point where I approach public land hunting like I do tournament bass fishing. Yes Iím there to have fun and make memories but at the same time very serious about my approach and having only 2-4 days I have to develop a plan to harvest a good buck. Doesnít always work but when it does, man itís special!

I must add that I really like the H&R Ultra Slug there too. I have a 12 gauge USH Deluxe bought in 2000. Shoots Federal/ Barnes Expanders around 1.5'' at 100.

Thanks for sharing a super trip and hunt!
Thank you! My 120Ē is the one in first pic leaning against tree. Hole in neck is exit wound. Shot slight quartering away in front of shoulder where neck meets at 38 yards. The H&R in pic is my .35 Whelen. I love that gun, itís taken more deer and hogs over the last 5 years than any other rifle I own. Dropped a buck at 210 yards with it about 7 years ago. I shoot the Barnes vortex 180 grain

A couple of really nice bucks there.
Just goes to show one doesn't need high fences and feeders to find good deer. Sweat equity and woodsmanship goes a long way.

Well I missed on all three things = The shot placement; which buck is in the picture and also the gun caliber. Ha! Thanks for all the clarification. I guess I've just seen more 12 & 20 gauge sluggers in the H&R single-shot than the primitive rifle calibers. The exit wound easily makes sense on that type of quartering shot.

I feel the same about my CVA Apex and I also shoot the Barnes Vortex.

210 yards on your past deer is highly commendable imo. My dad has taken two bucks on the club with a CVA Elite Stalker (same bullet) at just under 200 yards. His first buck of last season was an in-place kill and the other buck just last month only ran 30 yards after hit. All my shots on approx 6 WMA deer and one hog were all under 55 yards, and all with devastating results.

Thanks. Itís a meat hauling pack made by Alps Outdoorz and is the commander lite model. My buddies and I all have one and use them on public land. It makes life so much easier to skin and quarter a deer in the woods and pack it out. Best part is once you get back to truck the works done and you donít have to skin a deer.

That buck I killed was over 200 pounds and I also caped him all on the ground. So once he was packed up and caped, you are now minus a loud, hard to maneuver game cart!
