Looks like the deer was well worth waiting for.

Score, has great mass, I would guess 142 net score.

Just for future reference, if you have a rack scored and it is large enough for a book, have the rack scored first. Most of the scorers will want to make sure the skull plate has not been split to gain in score so they would have to open the stitching on the top back of the skull to check.

Great buck and nice looking mount. I'd put him in the 145-155 range, great mass.

High 140's. Maybe low 150's. Gorgeous buck. Great mass. He doesn't have a ton of tine length, but he'll make up for a little of that with the palmation in his main beams. Gosh that's a nice lookin' buck!

Why didn't you have your taxidermist score the buck? They're usually happy to do this.

Thanks everybody! First time getting a big one and first one to get mounted so I guess I didn't think about having the taxidermist score it. Definatly a shocker seeing him when I was hunting. I hunt north of Nashwauk in Itasca county and normally only see basket 8's and smaller bucks. Lots of wolves in our area and had 3 walk by me within 40 yards on opening day. Just gotta look online and find a person to score him.

I think slim is close on gross and I'm not one for net scores. I would take it any season all week long. He has a Canadian look to him. Congrats.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .
    • Bigfatbert
      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did. 
    • papadarv
      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.

      Dragfoot, where do you go trail riding up there? South of Roosevelt?
