    I made something in that evaporates deer scent and carries the scent downwind... I had special golden estrous in it this morning and this buck came charging in from directly down wind from me. Shot him at 65 yards broadside.... Im happy with it even though its only a 2 year old..

    Nice buck. Are you required to tag the deer in your State? Our State requires us to tag the deer before we even move it, yet I see so many photos of untagged deer.
     
  4. No tags here T, no ckeck in at all unless on a WMA. Nice deer BM.

    Michigan has voluntary check stations for the DNR cops to guess the age of your buck. Heavy on the guess.

    Curious, how many bucks are you allowed to kill in a year?

    2 bucks a year, 4 does. i have killed a 6 point and this seven point and one doe. so im tagged out on bucks and have 3 doe tags left.

    And No, there is no tag that must be present on the deer itsself. in nc you simply punch a hole in a piece of paper that has your "tags" on it, and then report it either by phone or online within 24 hours for a confirmation number.

    I took a piece of thin wall steel pipe and tack welded small metal rods across the inside diameter of the pipe... i drilled 3 small holes near the bottom of the pipe for air about 2 inches from the bottom. You buy small scent free candles that come in the small tin cups, use one of the cups for the deer scent, which sits up on the metal rods, and place another candle on the ground inside the pipe, under the cup of deer scent. The heat from the candle warms the small tin cup enough to cause the scent to start steaming, which drifts downwind.

    What about the other two deer that are probably laying dead some where? Do you not have to be responsible for those?

    If you do not find the deer it is not considered a harvest.

    ShastaDonegan Lets start with ridiculous and move backwards.

    Same thing in VA, just notch your tag for deer and call in to get your tag number...you still have to check in turkey and bear at a check in station though...had a friend get a ticket already this year though for not notching his tag, he called it in and wrote down the number but still got a ticket. I bet he won't ever get one again though.

    I'm not talking about finding the deer you carelessly shot at... Everyone makes a bad shot at some point in their life, but the difference is you weren't taking ethical shots. You were just slinging lead in hopes of killing one. I think careless, poor decisions like you made should hold you responsible for those deer, and likewise should cost you at least 1 of your tags...if not more.

    start problems? you do that way to well for me to try and take your job. I dont care if everyone else has decided to sweep it under the rug... what you did and have done in the past should be tattooed to your forehead as a constant reminder in hopes that you dont pull that crap again.
