Big Velvet 8 point

Discussion in 'Bucks and Does' started by Fish-N-Fool, Jun 29, 2005.

  1. Man I saw a dandy buck yesterday evening in the bean field across from my house. I was surprised to see how much rack he has already developed because the only other bucks I've seen (a week ago) were not nearly this far along. I know they grow fast, but geeze!

    He had beams that extend past his ears on each side and a solid 8 points showing. The G-2 & G-3's were already 6-8 inches each (with velvet). His rack did not yet come all the way around, but I can only imagine what he will look like come September! Too bad I still have no chance of ever hunting over there :( Sit and watch a real nice buck or two working this area every year for turture I guess :(

    I saw a real nice 10 even after the end of the season last year that was HUGE in body size & I suspect this was him, but you can never be sure.

    Hey what county did you see him in? Since highland county got hit with the new regs. ( 3 deer limit) I want to enjoy watching them now because after deer season is over there probably wont be many deer left.:mad: I know who I could blame for this but I will just keep my fingers still for lack or arguments sake.:rolleyes:

    Ya should try to get some nice pics, I know I would enjoy seeing them. I'm hoping to get my deer cams put out soon and some feeders will go up right before fall hits.

    It is Clark County - I live just outside Springfield. There are lots of deer, coyotes, and now even some turkey. The owner does not allow hunting, although I saw 2 guys in there last gun season (probably relatives).

    I've done all I can trust me. No need to hash out the details, but his elderly parents live across the road and I've done a lot for them. I will never hunt there.

    I guess I'll just settle for watching out my living room.

    Chessie - I have never tried to take pictures; they are typically a few hundred yards out. Sometimes they get close, but rarely. We have nice binocs sitting on the fireplace we watch them with - been seeing lots of skin heads lately, then this big dude.

    I'm looking at getting a spotting scope with the adapter that will attach a camera to it. I'm currenty looking for the adapter that allows you to use a telescope, if I can't find it I'll have to break down and get the spotting scope. I already have a telescope so it would be cheaper to just find the adapter lol
     
  6. we were at mohican state park this weekend and we saw a small bodied buck that had a impressive start on good rack.main beams only about 8inches long and almost the size of a baseball.he looked like he might have been around 120 pounds.

    i`m going to get my cams out this weekend and with anyluck we`l get some good velvet shots.

    Been seeing some nice deer around. Specially on the evenings of the days that it not 90 out.
    TRAPHUNTER- Don't worry bout em shooting all the deer. I hunt some countys that've been three deer for a number of yrs and still see the same numbers as when it was 2.
     
  10. If I could hunt over there I would have a GREAT chance of taking this big dude early in the season. he is bedding at least a few nights a week in a thin 40 yard wide strip of woods that borders a neighboorhood. He came out
    at 7 pm yesterday and made his usual trek down the edge of the fenceline (into the wind) and into the large woods a 1,000 yards off the road.

    He remains an 8 pointer, but he is getting very tall G-2 and G-3's. Also looks to be massive, but velvet always make them appear thick.
