Default ND Drop Tine Buck

Been watching this guy for a few months now and finally sealed the deal. Unfortunately, we had to back out last night during our track and when we found him this morning the yotes had completely eaten every bit of him. Guess it's time to start predator hunting that area big time!!

This is how we found him in the morning. Considered a shoulder mount since it's my first North Dakota whitetail (and best bow buck), but all I could salvage was a bit of the neck hide. Maybe 18". Does anyone know what dims the taxi needs to find a new hide? Or can he just go by pics?

Just tell him where the deer came from and approximate neck dimensions and he should be able to fix you up. A good cape will run you $200-$400 depending on quality.

Very nice! I chased mule deer South and West of Watford City for several years. The whitetail were steadily moving into the Muley country. We saw some dandys. Havent been out there since the 3 consecutive hard winters hammered the animals so hard. I understand they have rebounded well.

Great job Peter. Make sure you get a norther buck cape of like size. Or you will not enjoy the mount enough.

I got whipped by mule deer yesterday.

Yessir WT and muleys are both equally prevalent where we hunt. Muleys more in the "badlands" and WT more along the edges of the "badlands" amongst the coulees and tree lines. Makes me wonder if there might be hybrids in the area.

Thanks, Sir!! Will definitely be on the lookout for a cape. Heck, my wife may be able to provide one

Good luck with the muleys! Sure are some big ones you got over there.
