Any "Rico Sightings" on the lands you are hunting, Toff?

Not that I care (or will) hunt blacktails there, just curious if I've tromped around on the lands in the past with Rico?

Always fun to put a location to some of the stories.

Hunting blacktails SUCK. God damn nettles, blackberries, thick brush, and every nasty thing in between. You and Nick and are cray cray! smile

And when you do finally shoot a critter, feels like I've shot the neighbor's dog. Not the largest deer out there. Sabo slugs seems to put a real hurt (and hole) to them..... smile

Yes, Rico joins us in both of the properties we hunt on there!

I shot a well over 200# 4x5 out there last year wink He is not the biggest we have seen.

Fish on...

Agreed. At one point I hinted at an end of season wrap up, with pics, but never managed to do one.

I keep hoping you'll post it up. Masher blacktails are few and far between and even harder to kill.

Parker - I'm sure you've hunted the same properties.

We've done just a "little" bit of grounds work over the past 3 years getting one property dialed in - to put it mildly. Lots of time spent preparing and maintaining lands. I call it my deer golf course, complete with multiple holes and fairways. I just moved cams and installed (4) new ones this past weekend, so we'll learn more about what we are working with in the coming weeks. I do know that it was a bumper fawn crop this spring, so the future continues to look bright.

I really hope the Masher is still around. But if not, we have another 10 - 12 bucks running through all the time. Some real dandies in the mix, like Todd's 5x4 boss hawg from last year. I am really due for something big. Yeah, small bucks and does fill the freezer, but I want a true dandy. I would just die if that happened to be the MASHER!

Of the five or so big mature bucks that we have pics of from this property, the one I shot last year was the third biggest...so there are at least two donkeys there right now!

I'm not greedy...I just want one of us to get one of them.

We'll get the other one next year wink

I checked cameras on Monday and we have another stellar herd this year. LOTS of does & fawns, yearlings and bucks running around. Our (2) new stand locations are going to be money and they could have cared less that we've been in there working. I'm counting 10 individual bucks from spikes through mature deer so far, including one management buck that has 3 separate antlers. There's at least 3 big boys in the mix. It's been fun to watch them grow over the past 2 years. The masher big daddy of them all has yet to make an appearance, so we are really hoping he's still around.

Another kinda interesting thing is that some of the mature bucks are totally hard horned and all shined up, while others of the same antler size are still in velvet. I don't know if that's caused by age, time of year they were born, food, minerals or what? Maybe someone else has some knowledge they can share.

Some bucks velvet just gets to itching before others. Unless the ends look balled up still, they are usually done growing by end mid August.

Thanks guys.

Wyoming archery.
In the face screaming.

Never hunted in grizzly country before.
Definitely adds to the hunt.

I wish all the hunters here a safe, successful season.
