The "BIG" Buck

Un-believable. My neighbors buddy last week killed a 22 pointer. That beast had a 34" neck. I'm so jelous yet excited. He killed him on the Eastside of Cincy and I know there's more. He had on each side of his head about 5" from when the antlers exit the head 2 turned down tines at least 8" long. They looked as if he turned his head to far he'd stab himself in the neck.

I went out for the 1st time this season and saw a small doe and a good size buck but both were out of range. About a 1/2 hour later 2 coyotes walked past me. I should've killed one of them and got it mounted.

You should have killed both of the coyotes. They have no natural predators, and are devastating the small game and bird population, not to mention newly born deer.

I saw one of those giant bucks several years ago while hunting on a friend's farm in Maryland. It had 3 drop tines, and bunches of upright tines! I never did get a shot at it, although I did see it several times. The last time, it was walking directly towards my stand, I was downwind, and had come into the stand from downwind, but it just stopped and BACKED UP. I have never seen a deer backup in my life, and to this day I don't understand what spooked that big buck, but my heart was pounding for a while

I don't think anyone ever killed it, at least legally, or it would have been in the newspapers.

Smile Coyote problem!

I had not heard that they had ranged that far. We saw our first back in 84 darn near hit it just outside of Asheville NC. I have talked with a few Bow hunters who have shot a few & some hunters are finding eaten fawns in late summer.

The only natural predator here was the Red Wolf & they have been shot out again. So the job turns to the hunter to atleast keep their #s down. We can't take the needed firearn into the National Forest so Summer hunting is out on Federal land.

Someday we will regret that silly law & wish we had hunted them year round.

Coyotes are here in the midlands of South Carolina. My neighbor shot two last week.

They are like roaches up here with the suburbs growing the way they do they are ending up closer to people. Last summer they hired sharpshooters due to a bunch of them actually showing themselves at the edges of the woods in peoples backyards. Needless to say they didn't kill any. If they would have thought for a few minutes and used skilled hunters they would have bagged a few.
