    Got My Buck Back...

    No, it’s an open room in the house, sort of like a den. Our kids had stuff all over the ground so I had to crop the picture 😂

    Got My Buck Back...

    Haha I live in Yuma and work from Dateland to Coachella so I’m in the imperial valley a lot. Thanks everybody for the kind words. I appreciate it! Hope to get me a bigger one next year!

    Got My Buck Back...

    I got my buck back I shot in November. I originally was going to have another guy do it but he has developed arthritis so badly that he can no longer do taxidermy. I was not able to get my buck to Noel until Mid-December and on Saturday he called and said he had it all done. Just can't beat the turn around he offers and the work he does. Out the door was $475. Now, this buck isn't a monster by any means but he fits perfectly in a specific spot in my house.

    Spypoint Camera ?

    First time seeing your post but the only time I've ever had issues with mine is when the batteries died. Unless you are using the lithium energizer batteries, nothing else really has lasted too long on my camera. The lithiums will last 3-4 weeks.

    Desert Muzzy Hunt

    Did anybody have any luck on this hunt from the forum? I heard of a 3x3 and a nice 5x4 but that’s it.

    Desert Hunt

    Did anybody on here have success in the Muzzleloader hunt for 39/41? I haven’t heard much. I know of a 5x4 and a 3x3 but that’s it. **edit...I just realized this was muzzleloader for coues not just general muzzleloader. My bad.

    Canyons or flats?

    Yes, ferry duster. Our deer eat it up when it’s green.

    My 2018 Desert Buck **More Pics Added 11/28***

    I found these drops antlers a month before the season about 1.5-2 miles north of where I shot my buck. Think it is the same buck?

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to until I get the buck back from the taxidermist.

    Same Buck?

    A month before the season, I found this matching set of drop antlers in a wash, about 250 yards apart. I shot this buck about 1.5-2 miles north of where I found the drop antlers. Personally, I think there is a lot of similarities between them. Just curious if you guys think this is the same buck or not. Thanks.
  13. Not a lot of bucks were posted on here this year so I figured I'd share my buck from this season. Not much to the story. Tried glassing first few hours with zero luck. Was walking a finger wash off a main wash where we had seen some good tracks. Figured that with it being the 2nd weekend of the hunt, a lot of these deer had been pressured and would be on the out skirts of stuff in the day time. Ended up kicking this buck and another one up at 50 yards. They got to about 100 yards and slowed down to look back at me. I didn't have much time to shoot, I got this buck in my scope first and fired off a shot that dropped him. He tried to get back up and I put another one in him and that was it. He isn't the biggest buck but he's a solid 4x4 that I'm proud to have taken. I have a perfect spot in my home where he will fit.

    Canyons or flats?

    In my unit in southwest AZ, we were being told all the deer are “up high” but we found that anywhere we found ferry duster, there were deer. This year, we found more deer than any year previous and they were all in the flats where ferry duster littered the washes. Not “up high”...

    home range

    Deer I hunt are 4-5 miles from the closest water...have seen them 7-8 miles at times. Just depends on the year.
