Yesterday afternoon I was able to go do some late deer hunting. I had one blowing at me and then I saw 4 does and then a small 6-point chasing them, but no big bucks. We are going back to Georgia and by the time we get back to Kansas the season will be over. I may get to go one last time this afternoon or in the morning and that will be it for my season. Even though I haven’t harvested a whitetail buck this year I have enjoyed being out there getting after those big bucks. It can be tough when it’s late deer hunting.
This buck was hit by a car during late deer hunting season.
Whitetail Buck Hit By Car
The other morning I was headed home from work at 5:30 a.m near one of my favorite properties that I hunt, when I saw a police car pulled over with his lights on. So I slowed down and when I got closer I saw a car in front of the police car and the front end was wrecked pretty bad, so I started scanning the area for a whitetail buck and as I passed the scene I saw an antler sticking up out of the grass. So I went down and turned around and went back by and I saw the rack better this time and it was huge. This area is known for big bucks. So I’m thinking I wonder if I could get the whitetail?
So I decide to stop and ask. I pulled up behind the police car and got out and asked him if I could have the Kansas monster, and he said sure. He gave me a special tag to put on it and helped me load it. It was in the twenties when i got home so I went to bed and when I got up I took pictures and field dressed him and was able to get two good hams and the tenderloins. I was surprised how good of shape the big bucks rack was in, it only had a scratch on the back side from being hit.
This is the buck Robert harvested when it was in velvet he took it deer hunting in November.
I just love deer hunting November. Seeing all the trophies being taken is awesome. It seems each year the bucks get bigger. I think all the Quality Deer Management is really paying off. The big bucks are on the move in Georgia. Thanks to my buddies back in Georgia for sending me some pictures of some Georgia big bucks.
Deer Hunting November
Robert McDonald harvested this very nice 9 pointer on November 1,2009 deer hunting in Putnam county in Georgia. This buck had been seen on trail camera since July and was know to be quite a wanderer.
This is one of the big bucks Robert took.
Robert got in the stand at 4:00 pm on November 1st and at 4:05 the buck showed up in a clear-cut with his nose in the air trying to wind a hot doe. Robert made a sixty yard shot with his 7mm mag and the buck ran to the tree he was in and laid down 20 yards away. Robert said it was an awesome feeling to be able to see horns from the stand and as hard as he tried to hunt till dark he just had to get down and check out his trophy whitetail. I don’t blame you there Robert, I would have had to get down and check him out too!
Robert was near a clear-cut on November 1,2009 in Putnam county in Georgia when he took this very nice trophy whitetail.
Congratulations Robert on a great buck! That is awesome to have a nice buck on trail camera and to be able to harvest him. I bet you have already got a spot picked out to hang him on the wall.
Have you had any luck deer hunting November this year? I have seen a lot of really nice bucks people have gotten. I have hunted hard this year but don’t have much to show for it. I just thank the good lord for each chance I get to get out in the woods. I’m not even getting close to giving up on that monster yet. I think I’ll go Monday morning before I go to work. That’s if my boss (wife) doesn’t mind.
I saw this video of one of the greatest bucks of all time, I thought you might like. If you love big bucks and deer hunting as much as I do you will enjoy this video.
That is a nice buck. Can you imagine seeing a trophy buck like that out in the woods?
We’ll the big bucks should be dropping their antlers soon, if they haven’t already. I haven’t been able to get out and do any shed hunting yet, but I plan on going soon. I sure would like to find old big boys rack. I plan on searching in food plots and on the trails leading to and from them. Having trail cameras can be a great way to know when the big boys drop their antlers.
Also it will be time to plant food plots soon. It’s time to get soil samples if you haven’t already. We did some burning the other day, it’s still not to late to control burn but time is running out.
Deer Hunting Big Bucks is all for safety, especially for young children. I wanted to tell you about a program that I just heard about, that is a great one for young children. It is a program that is for gun accident prevention. Any program that prevents even one child from being hurt in a gun accident is a good one to me.
When I was in middle school a boy that I went to school with was killed by one of his friends in an gun accident. I grew up around guns, my mother worked at a gun store when I was growing up. My friend being killed like that made me always be alert whenever I am around a gun.
This program is very good one, if you are interested in finding out more information about it you can call(800) 231-0752. They have free materials for budget strapped schools and police departments. It’s just a great program.
