I missed him with a rifle in bow range in 2011, I couldn't close the deal in 2012. Lucky is his name. I am debating whether chasing him or moving to a area where there are bigger deer.

Yep, at 21 yards we think the buck heard the knees. The other thing we considered was that maybe my friends scent sank down to him or maybe the magical 6th sense kicked in. But I liked the knee crackin' story the best due to the fact that we are both turning 50 and we like to tease each other about getting old. fatrascal.

You definitely need to finish the deal with this buck then look for another place next year. Not too many successes feel better than settling the score with a buck who has outsmarted you for 2 years. You will have plenty of opportunities in the future for 190" bucks, this guy may pass or be taken before you can settle the score.

velvetfvr
06-03-2013, 02:25 PM
The reason I am entertaining the idea on going to the "new" spot is because my first deer I killed, I never set foot in that area until opening day. And I killed this big joker:
5716
5717

I have always had better luck just popping into a new area. I have hunted this new area a little bit. Lucky couldn't be found last rifle season and that are was flooded. Word got out about him also. Every hunter I talked to was chasing a buck like this in the same couple canyons, ridges etc. so I don't know for sure if lucky is still lucky.

It's hard convincing my parents to go 6 hours 1 way to scout. And they surely won't let me go alone. Good news is I know the area. Just am not sure how to approach it in terms of stalking. They hide in the aspen stands and don't know how some approach that situation. So I will create a thread for that.

I sure hope so, from what I saw, growth in the past few years was pretty weak. I saw 20 different bucks last year that all had very similar 3-point dink rack. If I hadn't known better I'd have sworn I was looking at the same buck all season, it was pretty disappointing. Fingers crossed IKIC is right and not just screwing with us.

There is some high country that always has water. I think the rains really help the lower country. The monsoons always come a bit late to help the growth. But if I were hunting archery I would definitely look at areas above tree line that have water a plenty. Come to think of it thats the only areas I hunt for archery!

I just got myself an NV archery tag OTC for area 17. So instead of watching you guys countdown I'm joining in. Less than 2 weeks before I head into the high country totally blind and happy about it. So excited to learn a new area and be hunting.

Negative on the "another NV archer trying to take over". I didn't realize that there was already one. New bow in the forecast for next week. Hoyt Spider with all Trophy ridge accessories! Good luck to all, Aim small miss small.

Last 2 shots at 80 yards

Was finishing getting the bow dialed in. So some angled shots and long range practice and I am fully prepared, or I think........

He never texted me some so this past weekend might not have got them a bunch of pics. All I know is he found more shooters.

Hope to have some pics from this weekend to post.

We had the cams in a new place and not much luck there. Put them back to get the deer patterned before the opener. We did find a few more shooters this weekend though.

I always keep extra arrows. When I do archery shoots I have like 21 arrows. And only use 1 or 2 depending on the shoot. So far its been good for me (knock on wood) that having more arrows only keeps me to using 1. It's never bad to have extra. It better to have more than needed then be needing more.

Hunting 17, will be the first time hunting there. A buddy of mine has hunted it for 10 years and has given me some ideas and areas to look. I got the tag last week OTC so haven't scouted at all. Kind of a last minute deal, good things tend to happen when I wing it tho! Good luck to everybody and can't wait to see some pics.

Found a stud 145-150" 3 point this morning. Was surprised I found him about 40 minutes after light. Probably missed more bucks but now I know where to concentrate my efforts. He is in a stalkable spot but its a b@&$h to get into. Which means He probably won't get much pressure. Season can't come fast enough!!!!!

I am really pumped checking this new little area I have been told to check out. I didn't hike into it because deer were everywhere on the way too it. And no need to put extra pressure on them.

Sucks I won't have signal, it would be cool updating everyone.
