2011 Meat Buck
« on: December 01, 2011, 04:43:53 PM »
This season, we hunted hard and hunted often. Never was able to find a good buck the whole time. A few mishaps happened throughout the time we hunted and finally on our last day we decided to pull the trigger on this little guy! Going to be good eating at least. Good to take him out of the gene pool as we don't think he wouldv'e been bigger then a 4 by3 anyways.



On a positive note, we tried the butt out and it worked like a gem! As well Brett skinned the whole deer by himself after, allowing me and my brother-inlaw to relax.

Cheers, Andy

In our avatar, thats Brett (the fat skin head) and Andy (I'm Brett's father). Brett's first kill back in 2008 and since then has grown hair and lost weight! Cheer's boys!

By the sounds of it you had a full hunting season and enjoyed it and got to top it off with some fine table fare. In the end thats the whole goal.. Well done and thx for sharing your hunt.

Good work. Nice looking buck. Will look even better on a plate with a couple side dishes.

Sometimes the smaller bucks are the better eating. Congrats!

Its a Mule deer wildmeat and as such they generaly don't get brow times until they are quite mature. I may be wrong but even then some never do get brow tines..

Looks like a great buck.  Congrats!  Wildmeat - As for mulies, I see more without brow tines than i see with them - they never seem to be present on the younger bucks.
