I am looking for 2k acres or more up for lease in the delta area. Please contact me at (601)569-6337. I am interested in up to 5k acres if the price is right.
I was blessed with the opportunity to harvest this 9 point on Dec 13th with a smokepole. He had an 18-1/4' inside spread and weighed 245lbs. He came by at ~80yds chasing a doe when I had already started climbing down the tree. Neither he nor the doe would stop, even when I 'maaahed' at the top of my lungs. I picked an opening that the doe had moved through and shot him when he came through it. It was a very good day shared with my Dad.
I had already taken a 170lb spike 2 hrs earlier with a special buck tag. He was laying 40 yds from my tree when I shot this guy.
I killed this deer at about 80 yds with Hornady 250 grain sabots over 150 grains of pyrodex. Is this kind of destruction common on the entry wound? Fragments exited in 4 different spots from just ahead of the hind quarter to the lower neck. I obviously have no complaints about the killing power of this bullet, just wandering if this is what I should expect as a norm.
Hey Guys, Does anyone out there have a Treewalker tree stand? I have hunted from Ol-Man and Summit stands over the last few years and am just not happy with them. I also have a Tree Lounge which is about to be up for sale. It is the most comfortable stand I've ever hunted from, but I have become mostly an archery hunter these days and the Tree Lounge just puts you too far from the tree when you stand up. I will be headed to the Buckmasters Expo on Friday to check out the Treewalker, but I was wandering if any of my fellow good ole boys might have some input as well.
