10 point mountain buck down

DONDALINGERDONDALINGER Member Posts: 1,539 ✭✭✭
What a season so far. I have had some crazy luck this year. I killed an 8 pt Saturday morning, then headed to my Dads in the mountains and Monday morning this buck comes right behind me at 8 am. For some reason, alot of the bucks on Dads farm look like this. Many are bigger, but many have this same "basket" type rack. I killed an 8 pt several years ago that had a rack almost identical to this one. I was glad to get him (blackpowder). Since Tuesday, we have been soaked from hurricane Ida. I hope to get back in the woods Saturday for opening of rifle season.

(the vehicle behind me is a 2 wheel drive "Rokon" I used to haul him out. It pulls like a tractor. Pulled this buck straight up the side of a steep ridge- sure beats dragging them. Way too steep for a quad)

Good luck to all.

Regards, Don

    I no longer live in the mountains of Virginia, I just go to visit and hunt every year at my Dads. It is located about an hour North of Boone, NC. Right outside of a little one horse town called Saltville. I can see Mt. Rogers and Whitetop Mt. from there. Very rugged terrain with lots of game including bear, bobcats, coyote- you name it.
