    danm I dont know how you guys kill those animals. Im not against it I love eating deer but shooting them is not my cup of tea. How do you guys carry it back do you just throw it on your back and man handle it or is there some kind of dear triple A were you call and they come and pick it up for u?

    Marke,We dont hunt for the kill.Its the time spent in the woods.Frosty sunrises,little birds singing,squirrels playing.Just relaxing and forgetting everything else except what you can see,hear,and smell.
    As for getting them out of the woods.That why hunters always say that one the harvest is made,the fun is over.It buckle down and drag time.Most of the places I hunt,I have to drag them out and 90% of the time,by myself.
    Its about like tieing a rope around 170lbs of concrete blocks and dragging them 5 miles up hill.

    Nice buck Ray, Yote has it right Marke, all the fun ends when you pull the trigger, first the fun chore of field dressing(elbow deep in entrails) then the drag dead weight for sure( I cheat and use my quad or snowmobile if it wont screw up others hunting)

    Ray your taxidermist did a fine job congrats on your first deer.

    Wow Ray! Thats one heck of a way to start your hunting career. That might be hard to beat, a good looking buck like that doesn't come around often, not around me anyway. I've only ever been able to bag does.

    Raven,2006 Was My 2nd Season Hunting. I Started In 2004. Unfortunatly I Did Lose A Big Buck Bow Hunting In 2004 Which Would Have Been My First. But I Pushed Him A Couple Times And Lost The Trail. I Was In The Right Place At The Right Time With This Buck. He Was Jumped And Was At Full Run About 45 Yards From My Stand. I Aimed And Unloaded My 11oo. Put About 23 Pellets In Him. I Did Get My First Bow Kill This Year. A 80 Lb Doe. I Am Hooked On Bowhunting !!!!

    Raven,Bowhunting is a whole other game.You'd love it.And you'll notice a lot more things going on than you would gun hunting,mainly because your forced to just watch untill they cross that 35 or 40 yard mark.
    I love bowhunting so much that I dont even carry a rifle deer hunting any more.I went archery only.

    Ray I hunted for 5 years before I even saw a living buck in the woods during season took 7 for a buck harvest. 112 is an AWESOME first buck let alone deer. I look forward to the next season and start planning for it as soon as the sun sets on the last day of season, not scary at all.

    I think Ray should get an award for "Most Frequently Changed Avatar". Every time I log on it's different!

    I think a bow is worse then they slowly die? Im not a tree hugger I couldnt live without meat. Do you guys have some kind of way you can take them out of there missery. Like an arterie you can cut so they loose enough blood to were they just pass out and die?
