With this Weather change fall/Winter is in the air. I expect some white stuff falling up high and cool wet conditions for the next 5 days!! Things should start poppin' big time. Those are some fantastic critters!! Can't believe that Buck still had a good set of velvet. Keep on keeping on!!!! Post up more when you get them!!! Man, would love to have a smokepole tag right about now!!!!
Congratulations on an outstanding hunt. Those pictures really get me going. Still have 3 days to go until the ML season starts and it seems like forever. Son has been out archery hunting same area as we ML hunt in. He has seen several nice bucks, two really big bucks and a lot of elk. Unfortunately for him none of the elk have been within bow range except for a 6x6 that almost ran him over after he cow called and he came running in full bore straight at him. At about 20 yards the bull saw him and decided he was not a cow and did a u-turn just as fast as he could. All happened so fast he could not get a ethical shot off at him.
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...
