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

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser
