153 B&c


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I was going to post all of my week-end adventures with pigs and coyotes until Steve came in Sunday morning with this beauty. His G2's, G3's and G4's were all long and it gave him about 114 inches of length. We scored him at 153 and 155 with a 2 1/2" kicker on the right G2.
Steve was using a 270 Win at about 110 yards. Buck was running a doe.
Hyke took a doe Sunday morning with his 338 MAg. Doe ran about 100 yards after shoot. Magnums (hogwash)!
Hyke also shot a 10 point.
We got some great video of a big 4x6 on a feeder.
I had a big buck on feeder until 2 groups of about 50 hogs descended on my feeder. Great week-end in North Texas and more cold fronts on the way.

You're getting some nice bucks on the lease this year, Tom.

This one is classic.

Yea, I'm real happy for Steve. A true trophy hunter. He has passed up some nice bucks, but not this one!

Wow that is a great deer. I am really happy for Steve. Heard about the doe and am just amazed that it ran as far as it did, especially when he flattened his 10-pointer with the same gun.

You never know.

I am going to get up there this week if it kills me.

Tom, I am going to change your title on the forum to "The Hog Master"

Most of my stands are near the thick stuff, which is okay for before and after the rut, but the bucks are up on the flats right now running doe.
BTW, that's the 11 point that I told you about.

You guys are killing me! That is an excellent buck. I have always thought there was a (Tenn., S.C., Texas) connection but I thought it was economic not hunter attitude. Seems it is both. There is a kindred spirit working here for sure.

Thx Chief,
I know you feel the same. There is a great respect for these animals that have given us so much enjoyment. Hunting for us is a year 'round activity and we TRY to do everything we can to help them out and improve the habitat that God gave them.

I didn't get any good close-ups, shame on me, I think that Eddy might have taken some better pictures. Here's the best quality I can get for the forum upload. I have not measured any of the dimensions, but Eddy did (while it was upside down and I was skinning it!) and said the inside spread was just under 16 inches. That ought to give some idea of the scale of the picture.

You can get some good deer when you let them grow up! Habitat management is what makes good bucks possible in, my opinion. I will get the jawbones back and an estimate on the age when the taxidermist is through with the head.

Very nice whitetail Mike. Congrats! Maybe not a 'short bus' deer any other time of the year?!!

What did you shoot him with?

Well tpv, I guess you're not 'one of us' that got picked up by the 'short bus' to go to school.

The short bus was reserved for us students that weren't very bright....and Mike's buck, in his intelligence-impaired state of rut (I assume), or just plain a little dense, was a 'short bus' deer.
