Got this beauty here on our place in Missouri. Great one! About 195--215 lbs bruiser 8 point who is now at the taxidermist! This is my first year actually "getting" to hunt. My first buck was about 4 weeks ago, a little 5 pointer which I field dressed myself. Then over the weekend this super nice fellow walked out behind a doe and a 4 pointer. I was glad I was still watching! I knew something was up the way the doe and the 4 point kept looking back in the woods further. There is a buck here I'd love to get who I call the "caribou buck". Actually there are 2 of them, a 10 point and a 12 point. On top of each they have palmations with 3 points each and resemble a caribou! So Cool!
I find I really don't mind working with my deer, field dressing, caping, etc. My MIL thinks I'm crazy and should have my hubby do all that. What are your thoughts? Do guys want a gal who can hunt, dress and cape out her own animal? Or is it intimidating? Would you (guys) be intimidated if your female partner took a bigger buck than you?? I'm curious!
Thanks for looking!
