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.

Cousin who guides in Montana

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

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch
