D-5 buck ...
Posted 21 October 2012 - 10:55 PM
Anyhow.. I FINALLY got me a Calif Blacktail And yes Im going to mount him since this hunt was rather special to me Hes just a fork, but I kinda think hes a nice old forky ... definitely an older buck..
Hanging weight without backstraps and tenderloins was 82 lbs.. Took him in D-5... Was a great week of hunting, literally put 200 plus miles on my quad covering alot of ground, but it was worth it.. He was facing downhill, looking back over his shoulder, little over 300 yards... Shot him in the shoulders no exit. Dropped him instantly of course since it broke his spine but the bullet took out his lungs.. nice clean kill Had my roommate with me so getting him loaded on the quad and back to camp was so much easier than if I had been by myself..

Got a 2nd tag and spent another week up hunting with my boyfrirend but all we saw were does all week... And naturally since I have a bear tag, no bear sightings either LOL.. Supposed to get snow tuesday night so going to head back up Wednesday and give it another go... Hopefully the snow will stick and get the boys moving about...

On the black bear, I wonder if using a distress rabbit call would be worth a try? At least as a last resort before quiting (a stand(?). A mouth call would be easy to carry, wouldn't take up any room. Then again, you'll probably call in everything but a bear. lol Anyhow, just a thought and good luck on your hunt Wed.
