Injured buck

Recommended Posts

I saw Biff T had a similar post about what to do if you see one. I didn't want to hi-jack that thread for my own.

My buddy said someone saw the big buck I have been seeing up by this pole barn (lots of trees up there) and he was limping. My question is more do you think he will stay in the general area if he was limping? Not sure how bad he is but if it is the same one I have seen he is a solid 8-10 pt. with a big body. I am hoping he is OK but really would like a shot at him.

I would like to know how he got hurt since the last I saw him was about the same time frame and he was just fine.

I only have a few days left until late December to hunt without lots of people traffic due to circumstances out of my control.

What are the chances he will stay in the area?

I would say if he's having a hard time moving around now & there's food & cover there he's not going anywhere unless he gets force out of there. Or is riding home in your truck...

It's hard to tell if he'll stay, but chances are good if there's food, cover and little hunting pressure. Also, a wounded or limping deer doesn't always mean he's been shot by a hunter. He could have been hit by a car, or perhaps even injured while fighting. Maybe there's a bigger one around that whipped his back side? shocked.gif

my assumption is car clipped him. Not seeing him personally makes me want to think that. There is not much hunting pressure but the neighbor bow hunts although he already scored on a buck. There is plenty of cover and food source not too far away. I wll post if I get him.

I am hitting the blind as much as I can before Thanksgiving dinner.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
