Nice work. This is been a tough year for a lot of us due to drought conditions and tons of people in the field. Way to persevere in less than ideal conditions!Nothing for me in Wyoming but did manage to dig this one up in Colorado, best buck we seen in the whole 3rd season, pretty tough hunt so feel fortunate to have harvested him!!
Not a record but pretty dang rare to see one over 300 dressed. To put it in perspective, 350 would be a dressed weight for a decent sized cow elk. The record is actually 410 pounds for a mule deer and even heavier for a whitetail - 439lbs.350 pounds field dressed with the guts taken out has got to be a world record.
Congratulations on your record.
Too bad on not seeing anything big. Glad the deer you harvested were healthy though.Just got back from our 4th season hunt. Myself and my hunting partner filled our tags. We saw lots of deer, but the rut was still not going hot. Just a few bucks around a few does. Saw no big bucks either. We both shot smaller bucks, but boy were they fat and in great shape. Will be some great eating.
I came home limping around with my left knee swelled up and both ankles really sore. A little better this morning......sure feeling my age after this trip that was real easy hunting.
