Last Day Buck (8 Point)

I heard a shot at about Noon on Saturday.
The shot came from the other side of the power line from both of our houses.
Then Bear Jr stopped at my house on his way to the Butcher shop, at about 2 PM.
I took a couple Pics before he left, so I figured I’d show you guys.

He said, “It’s not that big, but today was the last day of the season, so I took him”.

Bear Jr has been real busy with his Tower Business, so he didn't get out much at all this year.

He ended up at 129 pounds dressed, so he’ll give us a whole lot of Deerburger over the next year.


Thanks for stopping by,

Bear

Was that a Mule Deer?

We don't have any Muleys around here so we never count one side at a time, like is done with Muleys.

Out West we have Whitetail and Mule deer but we don't count up all the points on either one and say it was a 9 pointer or whatever, we count each side and say it was a ?x? whether it's Whitetail, Mule deer or elk.

There's less then 50 pounds of meat in that Whitetail in the pic posted above by the time the head, hide, fat and other undesirable stuff is removed.

Thanks for the Point count info!

We figure about 60--65 lbs from a 130 pound dressed PA Buck.

Good Deal! Congrats. I saw 3 shooters in PA this year just couldn't get it done. The freezer is bear but I still have until the end of the year.

I see snack sticks, jerky, summers sausage and maybe some kielbasa in your future

Could be as the Farm country grain feed deer tend to run bigger then stuff around Utah. I know we shot some big bodied deer when I was a kid in Eastern Washington around the wheat fields.
