Injured buck

4 posts in this topic

I saw Biff T had a similar post about what to do if you see one. I didn't want to hi-jack that thread for my own.

My buddy said someone saw the big buck I have been seeing up by this pole barn (lots of trees up there) and he was limping. My question is more do you think he will stay in the general area if he was limping? Not sure how bad he is but if it is the same one I have seen he is a solid 8-10 pt. with a big body. I am hoping he is OK but really would like a shot at him.

I would like to know how he got hurt since the last I saw him was about the same time frame and he was just fine.

I only have a few days left until late December to hunt without lots of people traffic due to circumstances out of my control.

What are the chances he will stay in the area?

I would say if he's having a hard time moving around now & there's food & cover there he's not going anywhere unless he gets force out of there. Or is riding home in your truck...

It's hard to tell if he'll stay, but chances are good if there's food, cover and little hunting pressure. Also, a wounded or limping deer doesn't always mean he's been shot by a hunter. He could have been hit by a car, or perhaps even injured while fighting. Maybe there's a bigger one around that whipped his back side? shocked.gif

my assumption is car clipped him. Not seeing him personally makes me want to think that. There is not much hunting pressure but the neighbor bow hunts although he already scored on a buck. There is plenty of cover and food source not too far away. I wll post if I get him.

I am hitting the blind as much as I can before Thanksgiving dinner.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
