Re: My first racked buck

yesir I shot him in Mize, Mississippi.

I didnt get an accurate weight b/c scales were broken... I wasnt aware of it but they were... I'de expect that he weighed in @ 180ish... in northwest MS its not uncommon for mature bucks to run 220ish. We don't have very much farming in my area so the food sources arent there. We do a good bit of tree farming in my area.... but that isnt what deer need. I'm trying to get some good plots going and get the neighbors in it as well. They don't believe in good deer management though.

I WISH I had all of my 1000 acres in one spot, I'de high fence it and grow my own trophies. We have to many outlaws and people who shoot ANYTHING that walks around here to have great large deer.

How far are you from Laura Miss ? I worked down their when katrina hit , they had some deer their but I didn't see anything as big as yours . What I did see mounted at a local lumber yard would rate yours at the top . Nice deer anywere in my book .

Yes Sir , It was laurel sorry about that , I bought alot of roofing supplies from Reds builers supply store , they were some great people to deal with let me say this about that town I ran a roofing buisness their and I had two crews and we put on all together around 60 roofs It was a great privilage to work for those people of laurel out of all of those house probably more than 60 I only got beat by one individual . I hold those folk very highly . Now that you say it their is a college about 1 1/2 miles from the laurel exit is that the college you went to I can't remeber the name . it had a good resteraunt just right off of the freeway . I cannot believe that I have forgotten the names of everything I was their about 7 months total.

Re: My first racked buck

yeah man I know how it is! I worked in Slidell, Louisiana for a couple of months after katrina cleaning up debris and I can't even remember the guys name that we worked for, he was supposedly a preacher, he owed up about 14 grand, we got about 6 of it and left and never looked back... luckily most of what we did was sit around waiting for the work to start.

that college is Jones Country Junior College... boy I had some GOOD times @ that pace!

Congratulations, nice buck. Hopefully once he's back from the taxidermist you'll post a pic of the mount.
