Here is my final entry for the contest. I have a chronic hip problem that was bothering me the first 2 days of the hunt, so I settled on this little buck. Then my hip never bothered me the rest of the trip. The next day out I saw a 170+ buck and couldn't do anything about it but try to get my brother on it. We came close, but didn't get it. So this little guy isn't what I was out there for, but I can live with it. I guess this will count for 11 points?

Ddahl3, It's all up to you now........ Any kill will put us in the lead.Tongue

Congrats, Hookhunter!!! - anything special about your boning out method? I need to learn how to do that. How far was the pack-out?

Nothing special about boning out. I didnt remove the guts on this one, but I think it is easier if you do. I just cut off the hide then remove the bones from the meat and put it in pillow cases. I can fit a whole deer in 2 pillow cases. Half goes in each, making it balanced when I throw it over the saddle horn. The pack from our base camp was only about a 1/4 mile. That base camp was 4.25 miles from the trail head. Our second base camp was 8 miles in. Did I mention that I saw a 170+ buck after I shot the dink? This was a totally new area for us and thus a learning year in trying to find out where the bigger bucks hang. We believe we pretty well have that figured out now. I hear F&G is thinking about changing the hunt. Figures......Frown

Well I'm on the board. I hope. This doe was kindof a blur. Was going to get a pic with the BFT paper yesterday when I went to take it down from hanging for a couple days but we were racing against the fading daylight after work. I got a pic of the meat with the BFT paper. I hope that works. I got a few more pics too. I'll totally understand if it doesn't count, I feel bad, we were hurrying and I spaced it Crazy.

The story goes like this:
I talked the wife into going road hunting with me for a few minutes before we went grocery shopping, this is her first hunting experience. Long story short, SHE spotted some deer running away only 20 minutes into our little "nature drive" I busted out of the Jeep and took off after them, 500 yards away from the jeep later I caught them trying to double back on me and got the second one out on a 200 yard shot. Didn't have my hunting knife, only my pocket knife (forgot it in the jeep) so I got to gutting with my pocket knife, actually worked pretty good. Began dragging while my brave wife "off roaded" the jeep a little closer so I wouldn't have to drag as far. While dragging I took a spill backwards and absolutely annihilated my pants, it was ok though, I was getting a little sweaty anyway Blush. Finally got it loaded and hung in my uncle's shed for a couple of days. It was fun, in the pic with my boy he kept wanting to play with the deer fur (proud dad!!) and we were all a little tired.

Quick note: that doe was as old as the hills! Not a single tooth in it's whole head!!

For your viewing enjoyment, I've included a few pictures and even one of my exploding pants (dont worry the pic is it's rated G, though after I ripped them it would be closer to PG-13 Tongue!!). Hope this works. This was an extra whitetail doe tag, so I still have the archery whitetail season for a buck!!

Well I'm done PiratePirate

Sorry Wilcam!

I passed on a spike and a little three point during the general season, then never had any more chances. Then I thought I'd have time to go after my extra doe at least, but that went out the window this last weekend. All in all I only spent about four hours in the woods this year Shocked

Oh well, anybody have any good tag-soup recipes??

I was in the hospital Thanksgiving day (gall bladder removed) and was out of commission till 10 dec. Finally got a big doe on the 21st sorry no BFT pic in it...I had to take my wife to the hospital and by the time I got home I needed to skin and take it to the butcher so I was in a rush...
I think she was an old doe....second pic is showing her teeth...or she smoked cigars ;)
