Heres what happens to backstraped deer the following year

11 posts in this topic

I hit this buck just above the shoulder and under the spine.That year he was about a 140 class 8 pointer

I figured this deer would run off and never be seen again.Well he had a perfect slug hole in 1 ear from the shotgun season.Well the following year i saw this buck under my stand.Same hole in the ear but was his rack ever messed up.Being i had put some time in this deer the year before i figured he would be a nice 1 to take for memory.

This is what he looked like the next year

Still a dandy though.

Maybe I miss read it, but I thought you said in one of your other posts that you didn't have any mounts?

Something similar happened to a buck that I shot 2 years ago. It is a very nice buck that I got on the wall now but anyways when skinning out the deer we found an arrow head imbedded right near the spin on the right side of the body. No its got an 8 inch droptine coming out by the base on the left side of the rack. I wish I knew how to post pics here so I could post a pic.

Do you see a red X or nothing at all??

Are you from utica if so where abouts we might just head over that way in a couple weeks when the bucks start to heat up and try some antler crashing.

Very nice Browning

Kinda weird how the antlers on the other side of the injury grow goofy.I shot an 11 pointer 15 years ago that had a broadhead stuck in the right shoulder.The broadhead was stuck in about half way.The right leg was locked up he had not used it in some time.The hoof was about 8" long.The left antler was half the size and all the points grew down not up.I'll try and look for some picks of that 1.The rack was small about a 110 class buck but it was kewl.Wish it was as big as yours i would of put it on the wall too

tjm---yeah its amazing how some deer can survive with some of the injuries they get. I personally have seen two deer killed that have been stuck by arrows at some point(and then killed in rifle season). I wonder why the antlers get affected so much from these wounds. Well looking at other topics I see you stuck a pretty nice one recently....congrats and thanks again perchking for posting that pic

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
