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

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
