Got my Buck!

8 posts in this topic

Just got home from bringing in my scrap meat for sausage at the local processor.On my way there I "connected" with a 6 point buck, with my car! At 60 mph I flung it about 10 ft in the air, and it landed right on the road, grunting a little after the hit! I drug it off to the shoulder, checked my damages, and got underway.Need a headlight, and a turn signal.Lucky it was my commuter car, and not my truck!Watch it out there fellas, them deer are moving!

As Ron White would say I believe you slow a bullet down to 55MPH put headlights on it and a horn and a deer will actually jump infront of it. Whew ellusive little creatures aren't they.

I feel your pain.Two years ago I hit an 8 pointer the night before opener on the way to the cabin.Messed my jeep up pretty good,left me sideways in the middle of 65N.Be careful everybody,its getting to that time where they're starting to move.

I-90 between St. Charles and Rochester. I've seen 3 bucks in the last 2 day. The wall mounter yesterday right next to the on ramp(dead, see roadkill post in deer forum) in St. Charles and one with the rack cut off next to the Dover off ramp. Just after that a big basket six standing at the edge of a corn field looking for something about half an hour ago. Probably a date. The rut has them less worried about cars. I wish I could hunt first season!

They're definitely on the move! My wife hit one on Monday night with her Grand Prix. I just missed one myself that night.

Me too I love that part. I think the only better deer piece is when Bill Engval talks about taking his wife hunting with him I love that part too.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
