New Jersey Public-Land Buck

2020-06-10T09:23:38-04:00March 7th, 2013|Big Deer Stories, BigDeer, Bowhunting, Deer Management|12 Comments

Longtime blogger Jeff Herrmann filed this recap of his 2012 season: I do not have access to private land here in New Jersey, so I am limited to hunting public land. If that were not challenging enough, I decided to limit my hunting to a compound or crossbow last season to take advantage of opportunities where gun hunting would not be allowed. The season started off well with several decent bucks on my cams. When I say “decent bucks” I am referring to public-land bucks in NJ which are hunted for 6 months a year. On the public properties few bucks live past 2.5 years old; average rack scores often top out in the 100” range. I hunted 2 to [...]

Unfortunately, it was the victim of EHD and found by someone in Kansas who wishes to remain anonymous, recovered with an official salvage tag.

Virginia: Amy’s First Buck

  Thanks to longtime blogger Cody for this report: Mike: My brother and I started hunting years ago with my dad and a few other family members. I live for it. I still get as excited now when I kill or even see deer as I did when I first started. I go every chance I get. My sister Amy, 26, didn't have any interest in hunting until a couple years ago, even though we had tried to get her to go when she was younger. She killed 2 does on drives a couple years ago, and was hooked. My dad got Amy her own rifle for Christmas a year ago, so she was more than ready for the 2012 [...]

Longtime blogger Necbone sent this: Hey Mike, shed season here in southern Illinois is in full swing. My little boy and I had a pretty successful weekend.

  Kevin Medlin didn’t have time to think about such things as rewriting Mississippi’s archery record book when a monster buck walked out of a thicket 50 yards from his stand on Nov. 11 in DeSoto County. “I didn’t even have time to get nervous,” Medlin said. “It all happened so fast. I guess from the time I saw him to the time I watched him crash down in a thicket wasn’t much more than a minute, if it was that long. It all happened that quick.” Read the full story here. http://www.ms-sportsman.com/details.php?id=2065
