A few weeks ago, our friend Wren sat in a new stand location on the ranch he hunts in South Texas and filmed this beautiful drop tine buck, which he aged at 3.5 / 4.5, in a sendero. “I filmed another really nice main frame 10 with a drop one weekend, too,” he said. “Can’t help but think about you each time I see one of these unique racks.”
There seems to be a strong drop-tine genetic on that ranch, and Wren has invited me down to hunt there next year. I am going to take him up on it. My desire for a drop-tine buck still burns deep.
Got this on our Big Deer Facebook page: “Jeff Ames shot this monster in Monroe County on 11/26/2013 near the Town of Chili. He has seen this deer for 2 years and missed him last year. Redemption!!”
This is a great buck and a huge accomplishment. I hunted northwestern New York (the Adirondacks, near Speculator) for the first time last season–it was some of the toughest deer hunting I’ve ever experienced (low numbers of deer per square mile, steep terrain…). But, the cool thing was hanging out in camp and hunting hard with a group of guys from across the upstate (picture below), seeing and living their passion and dedication for our sport, things you’ll see in a new episode of BIG DEER TV next year.
Shot this awesome buck in north Texas, what great character his rack has! Split brow time and split g-2, stickers at bases, good mass. Tremendous footage for Big Deer TV next season. Remington Model 783 in .270, topped with Trijicon AccuPoint scope.
How many deer do coyotes really kill and eat? Amid the great action of a predator hunt in Montana, we take a scientific look at the coyote-whitetail dynamic as these crafty predators continue to expand their range and grow in numbers. Special thanks to Dr. Grant Woods, American’s top deer scientist, for helping out with this project and contributing his expertise.
Tonight 8 and 11 PM Eastern on Sportsman Channel. Set your DVR, this is one great episode you don’t want to miss.
If you hunt in Wisconsin you need to watch or DVR my show tonight at 8 and 11 PM Eastern Time on the Sportsman Channel. Even if you don’t hunt in Wisconsin, I hope and believe you’ll enjoy this special episode.
Below are the hunters and the giant bucks you’ll see and hear about, in order of how they appear on the show: Lisa Brunner of Buffalo County…Tom Taylor and his 226 4/8” Wedding Crasher Buck…Dusty Gerrits and his 189”archery state record typical (shot last November)…and Wayne Schumacher and his 243 6/8” archery state record non-typical. Amazing bucks and very cool stories!
