I hunt in Illinois and Ohio most of the time but I grew up hunting in the Appalachian mountains of East Tennessee and Western North Carolina. Still love chasing these old mountain bucks. Totally different than hunting the agricultural fields of the Midwest. We had a low of 6° last night and a crystal clear morning, around 9 I heard a couple grunts and looked up to see this old bruiser following a doe through the laurel thicket. Stopped at 50 yds and I dropped with my ole smoke pole. He weighed 202# and was tough dragging. Luckily we had some snow on the ground and made it a bit easier. These bucks don't carry the headgear like the big ones in the Midwest but there are very gratifying to hunt [Linked Image]

Dang man, you really get after it. Nice buck!


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

That’s a very nice mountain deer man. Those are few and far between.


I keep desperately hoping that one day someone will call me "Sir" without adding "please calm down" or "you're causing a scene."

James we went from 60° on Monday to snow Tuesday and 6° tbis morning, I killed him at 5,000ft elevation so we get quite a bit of snow. But you can drive 40 mins from here and they hardly ever get any snow
