Know what sucks about hunting by yourself ? Nobody to help you take a picture, drag the deer or load into truck! LOL! Should have seen my old *** trying to load this in bed of truck by myself. Thank god for a come-along my son gave me for Christmas a few years ago, behind the seat new in the box still.

7 miles east of Calvert Texas, 53 acres, low fence, 35 yards shot from well brushed in pop up that double lunged him. Ran 50 yards leaving blood trail that looked like it was poured from a coke bottle. My trusty old Muzzy 3 blades!

I know he's not as big as those south Texas Deer, but on my place this is a great deer.

Good job.
I bet you could post on here when you get a deer down, and get someone nearby to come help load it.

Nice deer. I walk in our small property to keep from spooking the animals but I bring my 4 wheeler just incase I kill something.. last year I had to drag a doe 500 yards to the truck. I went home and told my wife I'm getting a 4 wheeler.. congrats on the nice buck .

Have a Flex Clamp Mount to hold my reg camera. Just clamp it to my Mule and set the timer. Oh I takes pics with the iPhone but I like this

Then since my Rotator cuff fixes i installed a 2K Warn Wench on the shooter seat of my Mule and it helps left big animals to the bad.

You can’t quarter them in the field, and get them in a cooler ? A lot easier.

Get you one of those mini octopus tripods and use the pic timer on your phone! Easy peasy, cheap and takes up very little room in your hunting pack or truck.
