    2021 Rut....

    In my area the rut has been better than the last 2-3 years... I missed a buck in his bed yesterday at 51 yards that clipped a little twig a few yards in front of him that flew the arrow way left. Heartbreaking... 61 yards again this AM from a 6+ year old heavy 180+" 4X4 but the little bucks wouldn't keep screwing with his does and I got in the middle of a revolving rut fest which is never good. I crawled 300 yards I bet but only moved 80...lol

    Obviously not a complete blanket statement by me but in multiple units on bucks 90+" I've been watching all summer, they are still in groups of 3-6 including a group of 6 just this morning who busted me as I was about the fling an arrow at a 95" buck. Feel free to nit pick a bit more. Lol

    Where are you located? I have a 2019 Ranger with one I don't use much anymore. It's the lock kind on the top of the bed rails. Not sure if it fits. I'm in Tucson area.

    Antler Shot Off?

    Sorry for hijack. Target Buck #1- Dead buck #2 - Sheds of target buck and damaged cape- I wasn't even looking for his sheds and stumbled upon them later that year. It was an unreal find and closed the chapter into what happened.

    Antler Shot Off?

    Two years ago my target buck was intact a week before opener. Opener comes, glass him up, he's missing his right side from his brow up. Devastated. Thought it was shot off, etc. Three days later I killed my #2 buck in same basin. My #2 buck had stab wounds and marks on his neck that looked like antler scrapes. I got suspicious they had a tussle. I verified that was the case when I found my #1 bucks sheds. Antler was not shot off but was a very irregularly broken with no bullet evidence. Break was up and down, not from a shearing bullet. Buck #2 is on wall, with buck #1's sheds next to him. Buck #2 was mounted as he was with cape damage from antler. For some reason they got into it. This is my long winded version of it can happen this early because I've seen it. Combined with this year's conditions and I bet it wouldn't take much this year for breakage. Bunch if ways he could have gotten broke including a bullet.

    Need Help.. Missed biggest deer of my life

    Sounds like bad data in or out or a unit of measure issue. 2 different scopes doing same thing doesn't sound mechanical. Sure you somehow didn't zero stop a full revolution of elevation dial off somehow after last range session?

    It's been a rough week. I've been out doing the same thing you are. It just takes one opportunity, but you know this. These desert bucks are fickle, days too hot they feeding at 430. Days perfect, in a wash all day. It's a grind any desert flats deer hunt prior to January, on average....

    Is that the EMP bed cover? If so, how'd it do with dust. GLWS. Nice ride.

    Good luck bro. Those desert bucks will test how bad you want to be out there for sure. But rewards can be big.....

    Any illegal action down south this year on deer hunts

    There are a bunch of water and food drops for them around those hills. I've seen them..
