This was my first deer ever. Got him after 4 days in the SHNF



This one is the largest I’ve shot. Dressed at 130. That was quite the haul from a mile in, also SHNF. Hopefully I can make some time for public land this year.



Good luck tomorrow everybody!

Some good deer - 127 in. 7 pt??? Must be a big midwest deer because that in my East Texas area is about 105 to 110 in. Congrats as that is some good deer. Better than anything that I have killed on public by far

IIRC that whitetail came from North Dakota. I'm pretty sure he had a thread about it too.

My assumption is the mulie came from there also.
