10/26 Update…

Oct 26 2008

Shawn and I have been hitting the stands each weekend.  This weekend I had a few small bucks cruising along and fighting and last week I passed on a decent 7 pointer.  Below is a update from Shawn from this Weekend:

Do It Yourself (DIY) taxidermy is much cheaper. All said and done this euro of the bow kill buck 2008 costs me $40.00 and about 25 hours of work. Turned out nice.

Speaking of taxidermy bills, almost had a shot opportunity at a massive mature buck this Saturday. I don’t know exactly how big or points and as they say they always look bigger running away from you. All I know was that I am holding out for a huge deer after the early season bucks. This buck was for sure HUGE!

Details-I heard a deer sloshing through a creek bottom. He had already gone passed me through some very thick underbrush. I caught a glimpse of his body and horns. I wanted a better look at him so at about 60 yards I grunted a couple times at him. He didn’t even pay attention to me and I found that odd. So a couple of more grunts later and he kept going. I decided to turn around and scan the area that’s when I noticed this huge buck 35 yards behind me in a clear shooting lane looking up the tree at me. At that time he turned and ran then jumped in and swam the creek and sloshed through the flooded creek bottom. Gone but not forgotten I can only hope that when the rut cranks in he returns. This deer escaped only due to another buck in front of him and an assumption on my part that bucks would be all by themselves this time of year.
