Well..it's currently the 2010 Wisconsin gun season, and as usual it has been REALLY slow. Opening weekend I saw 6 deer, 1 shooter buck. Last night I finally saw another deer, it was a doe. She saw me pull the gun out of the window of the tower stand and hopped into the woods where I couldn't get a shot. This morning was another cold one..about 10 degrees. After about 8:30 I was too cold and I hadn't seen anything so I decided I would take a hike. I decided I would walk up a power line that runs along the edge of our woods. I didn't expect to see anything as everything was real crunchy and noisy. When I got to the top of the first hill i noticed a bunch of fresh deer activity. I looked at it and got my rifle ready just in case. I walked a little further and saw a big buck just laying there soaking up the morning sun! I was only 10 yards away and he didn't have a care in world. I looked at him for a second and noticed he only had 1 antler, and his right eye was gouged out...so I figured I would put him out of his misery...the coyotes would get him eventually for sure I thought. I brought up my rifle and put a bullet right in his neck..quick and painless death. The mechanic that I took my fourwheeler to, to have a winch put on said he had seen a 1 horned buck around. He only lives a cornfield and a row of trees away from where I hunt. This must be the buck he was telling me about as he is a very large buck. His left side has 4 points, and his G2 is 11". I figured when he had both antlers he was approx. 18" wide. When I got home I weighed him at 178lbs...probably about 200lbs live weight, give or take a few pounds...gotta love those big Wisconsin deer!

nice buck i take it on your stalk you came in on his right:w00t:
Surprisingly no. He was actually looking in the direction that I was standing when I took the first picture. The blood that you see is the exit wound from my shot, and about where my scope is you can see where my bullet grazed him when it exited his neck.

To Hunt NH: That's exactly what I thought, lol.
