Mike - that's a spittin' image of the spike I shot. Same scenario - thought it was a doe (even the oak leaves look the same). Had a doe tag, so it was no big deal, but I was surprised.
Alpine Archer - My wife uses a 7mm Mauser (Ruger M77 7x57). It's a great deer getter, for sure.
I bet he'll eat real good! Congrats on a NY buck of any size :) Kevin
P.S. Are you coming bear hunting with us this spring?
You sure know how to tempt a man! lol.
THANK YOU for teh invitation. But I think I will save up for either a trip back west to hunt muleys in the area I know with the friends who live there, or take a moose hunt. But I DO want a bear someday....
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
