Biggest deer I have ever seen or shot was a doe. This was back about 1980.
We did not get a weight on her. The check station guy in Albany MO said he thought she would go 275-300 gutted.
I was in Jr High. I had no clue I may have shot a record deer weight wise, she was just a big doe to me. The...
Yes I have a pile of 1980's racks in my basement that I show the kids every now and then.
They are reaping the benefits of 40 years of deer learning and education, truly living in the golden age
Back in the day my wife shot a 115" 8 pointer. It had 11" G2s, fairly long G3s, a...
My 14 year old son and my 24 year old daughter had a hunt that may never be topped. They doubled up
filming and shooting a couple of good 8's. I taught them how to shoot, but otherwise I can't claim any
credit for this video. They did it all!
Best part of this to me is the "family" part of...
Looks like a deer you might see at the classic in Des Moines.
Her reaction at the beginning of the video is priceless... she knows what she has!
This has a pretty good story with it. Congrats to the young lady!!!
I just love it when a young girl gets it done on a big buck.(I raised 4 daughters...
In Missouri they have to be 11 and hunter certified to hunt alone. So we never broke that rule.
Phones do add a piece of mind to the situation. You can text when they get set up and do check ins frequently, even if you are 100 yards over the hill.
My kids all started tagging deer at 6 to 10...
They have both done well in the firearms department and big bucks.
They have done well in the archery doe department.
They have had zero luck over 4 years getting a decent buck in range. Zero shots, but I am betting when they get a shot a tag will be filled.:)
Not just kids.... I have seen a lot of guys shoot a giant and never have much passion to hunt after that. They know they will never get a bigger one.
There are also plenty of stories of guys killing a true giant the first day they went hunting.
As far as who sticks with it, and who doesn't, is...
Well today they are ready to hit the woods after a real buck!
Hoping they can get lined out on a decent buck this year. They have both taken several does
with their bows, but so far no legal bucks have cooperated.
Good luck to everyone out there on tagging a good one this year.
