Nice buck...:thumbsup1: Congrats to your friend. Get's me thinking about my hunt tomorrow morning. I've got a lunch packed and I am planning on spending the entire day in the tree. Cam pics show the deer coming in the afternoon, but I don't have a time stamp so I have to just be thre and hope they come in before dark.
People think all KS bucks are huge, but htat isn't the case. What is the case is that there are some really big bucks here. I am fortunate to live in this state.
Nice looking buck. It does not really matter that he saw bigger deer if that is his biggest one to date. I guess it doesn't really matter if he saw bigger deer and the one that he took was not his best either. The only thing that matters is that he is happy with it and I don't see why he wouldn't be. The only thing that sucks about it is that he is done now. Good luck to the rest of you guys. It sounds like the rut is starting to kick into gear in accross the country so I am expecting even more pictures of you guys with your bucks soon.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
