Big Buck Stories

Video: Drop-Tine Buck!

Thanks to a hunter in the Midwest for sending this:

“Shot this video last week it’s shaky but still cool. Had trail pics of him last year; his drop has doubled in size and split this year. This is free-range deer.”

Trail-Cam Monday: Big Buck is Back!

A hunter from somewhere in the Midwest has this great buck on camera.

Mike: We were calling him the Big 9 (his picture from 2013 below) but I think he needs a new name now. I’ll take name suggestions from the BIG DEER bloggers.

History is, the buck showed up in 2013 and appeared on only one camera 2 different days in late July–then we never saw him again. This year he’s been on 2 cameras every couple days since June when we able to identify him (we run cameras year-around).

Any guesses on potential score (and age) based on his pics from 2013 to this year? Again, what’s a good new name for this buck?

Arizona: Eco-Terrorism on Public Land

Someone has been purposely placing sharpened rebar on and near forest roads in the Happy Jack area of central Arizona. Spiked pieces of rebar have slashed at least 8 tires.

“The end of the rebar has been flattened and sharpened to a point and the exposed point has been painted to blend in with the road surface,” said Mogollon Rim District Ranger Linda Wadleigh. “The objects pose a serious threat to everyone, and that doesn’t just mean people recreating on a motorcycle or off-highway vehicle, it includes people walking, hiking and even wildlife. We are taking this very seriously and asking the public to keep an eye out and report suspicious activity in the area.”

Who would do something like this? Of the more than 1,000 comments posted about this story on the AZ Fish & Game Facebook page, most people feel it is the nasty work of tree huggers, or maybe pot growers in the area.

I lean toward environmental whackos, and I hope they are caught and busted soon before hunting season. Those spikes could maim or kill somebody.
