Of course, but now that you work for the competition i guess you will have less time...

I had a 30" 5X5 give me the slip on Monday, I had him at 40 yards but I did not have a clean shot, so I had to pass it up. I am going back out after him again this week.

got 50 yards from the largest deer I 've ever seen with a tag in my pocket. Full draw he stopped behind some oak and just like that went after his doe. Heading up tomorrow to see if I can find him again. Never seen a buck with a drop tine before, be he had a 12"er and a 6" cheater, HUGE!! After him I snuck within 80 yards of a 28"ish 180 buck, buck he also gave me the slip. Hope I can find them up there again. Had to give it a few day to recover, my legs are killing me.

Anyone else seen a droptine before? That is my first and he is huge.

I saw this buck live in person but could only find this one side of his sheds. I have some very poor video footage of him also. He was about 32" wide and as you can see, has two awesome droppers.

I have been chasing some good bucks up high on the weekends and down low in the morning before work. I've seen a double drop tine buck on the front about 5 years ago, (when it used to snow this time of year). I do have a question though. Has anyone noticed the rut slowing down? I've located a big buck this past monday and patterned him out. Each time I saw him, he was hot on a doe in the herd. Now all I'm seing is the herd of does each morning. Can't seem to locate him or any of the other bucks for that matter.?

I was out for a few hours this morning. The first two deer I saw was a 2 point running down a doe...wouldn't leave her alone. They were practically doing circles around me. The second deer I saw was another 2 point but he was by himself. He seemed to be "on a mission" to get somewhere and was walking fast and not paying much attention to anything. He didn't look like he was spooked, just in a hurry to get to something. The last deer I saw was a decent 4 point and he was also flying solo. I saw him from about 200 yards away and he was heading right toward me. There were a couple of small gullies at 75 yards which were full of buck brush. He went down into the buck brush and simply vanished....I have no idea how it happened. I was watching him and could hear every step he made and then nothing....he just disappeared. I waited for a LONG time because I thought he must have bedded down but when I snuck over to where I last saw him, he was no where to be found. I'm wondering if he somehow got on a nice quiet game trail and made his escape..... Oh well, it was an eventful morning and got that 4 point got my heart pounding pretty good. I'm heading back out tomorrow evening. Good luck to ya'll!

I think the rut is still going hard if you know what I mean :lol: . I watched three does get some goods from two bucks. I chased one through scrub oak for 2 and a half hours. He was pushing 28 inch I bet and only had 80 plus yard shots that I did not take then I walked right up on him. I guessed him at 20 yards and was at full draw waiting for a good shot at his honey spot. Then I started second guessing myself and let the arrow down range found him and he was 21 yards I drew back and he took one good bounce and was and the go again (after does) :cry: I felt like laying down and dieing for second guessing myself. But I guess that is the way it goes. I have been in the same situation let down and ranged em and it payed off. not this time. :cry: :cry: :cry: :(

Yet again I was out looking for elk and saw a 26-28 in 4x4 buck. I first spotted him at 40 yrds and he couldnt see me but got a wiff after I watched him for a couple seconds and trotted off. About 15 min later he had circled back and again I saw him at 40 yards and could have easily got a shot off........... if I only had a deer tag!!!! I saw 2 2 points and a 3 point also. The thing that was cool about this is I got up there at like 4 o clock and was only 1/4 mile off the cottonwood canyon road and I finally saw some elk tracks. Everyone pray for snow.

Failure for me....I went up Millcreek canyon and I saw tons. I counted 21 hikers and 14 Mt Bikers they were everywhere. I didn't even see a deer.

What a joke...

A buddy of mine tagged out Sunday on a really nice four point with a cheater on the right and two eyeguards. Just got pics today.... hopefully he posts them up... if not, I might ask him if I can throw them on here or something. Apparently he's been told to write up a story and they'll put it in EBJ. Should be cool.... Doesn't look super wide but tall and good mass.... sure looks like a good deer. :D
