Just went for a ride to check some spots for my deer hunt and saw a couple nice young bucks. which is good for just being burned. but when i got home there was 2 4x4 in my street. might just have hunt my backyard.
That's the thing with some of these tags that take so long to get. The expectations are high but also put a lot of stress on you when you think about how long you waited and what will happen when the season finally gets here. It took 18 years to get my bull tag for this year and now I haven't had a chance to get up there and look around yet.
And although I have seen a couple of bucks in the yard as well I have not yet spotted a good bull waiting for me.
Yeah i know all about stress. the last time i had this tag i was 16 and still learning. 3 fires later and all thoughs years scouting, i just hope i don't jump the gun and shot the 1st deer i see. I am going to set my stanards high. i have 22 days to hunt. Hoping to get out this evening to glass a few areas and check some other areas to see if they burned.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
