Thought I should start a thread on d-14 bucks since I have two tags and will post pictures of bucks as we take them this year. Here is a picture of myself, my wifey, and my buddy, with some D14 bucks we took a few years ago on a very rainy day, a 2x2, 4x3, and a 4x4 respectfully. Sorry if the picture is bad, but took a photo of a photo with my cell phone. Wish I had used a better camera on this day and yes I shot the scrub, hahahaha. I let my wife take the 4x3!!

Hey, I know that old burn ! I won't tell anybody where it is !
Nice D14 bucks for sure !!!
Yea HuntWYODon I luv hunting the burns. Here are two more bucks we took on a cold rainy day in D14, this time I shot the bigger buck! My buddy did not have good rain gear and froze his but off. Thats why the picture is so shaky.....he was trembling, lol. The quad in picture was the worst Honda Foreman I ever owned, kept breaking down on me. I finally traded it in for a Yamaha Griz...

Here is my last year's D14 buck (2011 season). My buddy shot the wide 3x2, we saw several legal bucks this morning. When I hunt my local mts I'll shoot the first legal buck I see to fill the freezer. I then start trophy hunting or wait till last week to fill second tag.

Here is a freak 5x4 buck we took in D14 a few years back. The right side antler with the 5 weird points did not come out in photo. The deer was ugly when he was shot and came out uglier after I mounted it! lol sorry...

Here I am with my nephews first D14 buck, a 4x3. This buck was in a herd with several giant bucks, my nephew just pointed his rifle and shot, dropping one of the smaller bucks.....I asked him why he didn't shoot the biggest one. He replied, "Unkle, I was shaking so bad, I shot soon as I saw the first legal one in my scope!"

All nice bucks for D14 or Calif. for that matter ! I had a 2004 Polaris Sportsman 700 . It was awesome. Tons of power and never had a problem with it and I beat the heck out of it in Ca.,Az.,Ut. and Wy. for 5 yrs. until I rolled it down a mtn. in Wy. and totaled it. I got a Polaris 800 Razor after that, camo of couse. No problems with it so far either. Yeah, there a lot of burns lately in San Berdoo Mtns. ! Going to be some better hunting I think. Like you, I always liked hunting the last week of the season and especially the last 3 days and if lucky get a snow storm or heavy rain. Then they come out like flies when it clears up. Did you ever hunt D14 back when it was all D11, both sides of 10 frwy ? It used to stay open until after Thanksgiving. Rut time ! They changed that probably because too many bucks getting shot.

look at the mass on that one, I always wonder why they fork so big without turning into 3x3s or 4x4s some times?
