Just Sharing - Deer & Elk Hunt Pics

5 posts in this topic

I've got an uncle and a couple of cousins who live in South Dakota who have taken some nice deer these past couple years. Just wanted to share their pictures. Deer pics are South Dakota deer.

Also, my one cousin guides elk hunts in Montana. I think this is his second year doing it. Also wanted to share a couple of pics I got from his guide trips, although whomever took the one pic didn't do a very good job.

Not mega-trophy bucks, but all nice ones in my opinion. One of these days I'm going to have to get out there and join them for a hunt! smirk.gif

Thanks.... With 1 day 8 hours and 45 mins left before hunting you have to go put me over the edge by showing me all those cool pictures.

Looks like some great animals. I could only hope to be that lucky this weekend.

thanks for shareing.

At least they're not related to you! wink.gif Here I got relatives going out shooting these nice bucks and sending me pictures of them year after year. What's even worse is they've scouted bigger bucks in the area they hunt, but had to "settle" for these deer because it was at the end of their hunting trip. I told them "Gee, that must suck". crazy.giftongue.gif

I don't know, maybe the elk from the pics and shows I have watched aren't mega trophy's but I would think IMO they are all trophy's..thanks for sharing

Mega-trophis might not have been the right word to use. Mega-bucks might have been better. They are dandies, no doubt, and I wouldn't have a problem mounting any one of them! smile.gif

Funny thing about the buck in the first pic...my cousin hit it with his bow the night before, couldn't find it, the next day he and a buddy were duck hunting down the creek you see in the backround, they see a rack on shore and sure enough, it's got the arrow he shot it with!

Ya just never know how things will work out sometimes. smirk.gif

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
