I would say it definitely appears to be. If not these two are very close related.
The buck in the second pick looks like it could be either one of the two in the first pic . The brow tines are throwing me off a little though . The buck in the second pic has a short curved right brow tine and the two on the top pic doesn't .
Monsters in my book either way ! You have some reindeer up there huntr . Really nice deer . I would be pumped .
i think this is same deer from 2yrs ago
Choupic, that curved browtine is a clue for me also, if same one it is on opposite side. Check out the new pic from last year. Surprisingly i've seen several do this. Did u see these from '10, they are still alive but havent shown yet. I do admit i have trouble sleeping at night.lol Thanks for the comments, i work very hard to support those 4 legged freeloaders. lol
Due to the main beams I would say negative! At least not enough evidence to make me think it.
Mike, ever heard the old wives tale that deer have narrower horns in a drought year? Both the big ones i have this year so far seem very narrow from last year. Shouldnt be the same deer because i've never seen him in that area before. Course like i always say, its hard to tell 8pts apart, but neither of these deer seem to have notched ears or other marks. Thats why i like freak deer, easier to keep up with thru the years.lol
Just out of curiosity ... You have these pics from last year and previous years of big mature deer . What deer do you shoot ? Do you shoot or cull them on their down hill years or ? Are these deer that you just didn't get a shot on last year ?
When i grew up people farmed or pipeline work in summer and went to the island for winter and deer season. Most places in la. had few deer and some parts no season, but we had em in herds, 100-300 a day, so i killed over 150 bucks before tensas refuge was formed. When i got my private land in '95 i wanted to find the worst land with the fewest deer so i could try my hand at management. So i was always very selective, my wife just tyies to kill the first nice rack that will give her a dead shot, she's 20 for 21, with half a dozen mounted. The last 2 yrs. she has killed two 5x3 and 5x4 that are on boards. In one of my posts on tensas i kept a daily journal of every couple days, pull that up if ur interested.We have 25 mounted so space is an issue.lolI've guided about 75 people, mostly yutes, to their first or largest deer ever.
Thats awesome . Man I can't think of a better feeling almost than when your hunting with a kid,( especially your own) and they kill a deer . I will never forget when my son killed his first deer ... He had tears running down both of his cheeks when he turned and asked me did he get him ! That's when you know they're ate up with it ! Lol I was with my nephew too and you could tell he wanted to be emotional but at the same time he wanted to be macho I guess ..
But that's awesome for you since you've got to share that experience so many times . And you have the land and deer to make it possible for the youths to experience the world of deer hunting !
Yep i had a bad obsession with big deer.lol Then i decided to have a youth hunt to help us with management. Thats now the most fun hunt we have and have met some good people from this site.We call em 'rent a kids', have fun on the weekends then send em home.lol Its so important to give em positive experiences at first, not just hours of boredom sitting in a cold stand to not be able to shoot the only deer they see.
We hunted Miss a few years and my son killed a nice 8 point in a stand by himself while I was hunting with my younger daughter . That was pretty awesome too . But the thing up there you had 3 does and 3 bucks you could kill . So my son would kill a doe and I wanted to let my daughter or nephew kill one too . Had to be 6 point or better for bucks so once you kill a doe or two we'd have to watch all the does and spikes and such walk all around us . It was nice to see that many deer but I would of liked for him to shoot a lil more .
Then we would go home and try to find the deer in the swamp again. You have to stay on top of that because they move a lot of times . Sitting in a box stand watching a green field can be quite boring ! Seeing deer or not . Really bad if you wanna let your kids shoot when they can't . So we decided to stick with the swamp .
We still have areas on high land we can go but at least when you hunt the swamp its exciting I guess for a kid . Seeing all the different creatures and ducks and all . But like I said before its different now for the both of us . He can push his own pirogue and pack his own climber . Before I was doing most of it , which I didn't mind . But it's a heck of a lot easier now .
You're right, doing anything too long is boreing for kids. I've had more fun chaseing 'dillo's with a stick with those kids while others were hunting 'trophy' bucks than hunting in the rut myself.We hunt foodplots because our woods are too thick to hunt but we dont use timed feeders or corn ever. We shoot does every 3rd year so they dont get too wild and we try not to shoot spikes or knotheads. By the way, we're not a commercial operation, most of our hunts are free for kids, charities to raffle, or friends kids. I definately believe in teaching them how to hunt, but thats hard to do now, most places limit u to couple stands.
Yeah , the people we hunted with up there were real good people and we followed the rules as well . My son did accidentally shoot a knot head for a doe . It was over a hundred yds and I figured I would have to pay a fine . My lil
Boy appologized to the pres. In front of everyone Without me saying anything to him , which made me a proud dad again .
But if we hunt for two or three weeks and haven't killed and a spike or doe comes out , I want him to shoot . Not that I'm teaching him to kill everything he sees but just to keep him into it . He was watching 3 does and a spike when he killed the 8 point . I know myself deer were scarce when I was a kid and if it'd been me , at that age , there would of been three dead does and a spike . Lol
My lil nephew and son . We were in our houseboat going deer hunting with dogs the next morning out o
Huntr that's a good thing y'all have going up there and I know you can't wait for hunting season to kick off . Hopefully we won't have any hurricanes in the near future and hopefully we'll have a lil frost at least this year ! Last year sucked as far as the weather . The Mosquitos were terrible and it was too hot to hunt a lot of times . We rabbit hunted a bunch , at least you can move around and swat them while rabbit hunting .
But good luck to y'all and have fun hunting with the kids !
Just paying forward what we were so lucky to get. Love that pic, reminnds me of when my gun was bigger than me and a 10pt was behind every tree !!!lol I was just thinking we need to start a thread of yutes pics.
