Anyone lose a large buck recently in the North Hudson area by any chance?

Found this fella Sunday morning on my way out of the woods...
Didn't look like it had been there for very long...
Notice the fresh drag marks in the upper right.

I took this guy on 11/27, the last day of a slow and challenging 10 day hunt in the French Louie wild forest, 2 hours before closing up camp for the year. Like others have said, the sign was there but the deer were not and it definitely made for long days. It was beginning to look like another day with no deer and what would have been the first time since 1985 that our camp had not taken a buck in back to back years but that all changed in an ADK moment. Fate, luck, right place/right time, perseverance...I'm not sure what to call it but I do know what to call my annual ADK hunt with family and friends at Camp Lewey...deer or no deer...memorable.

The coyotes don't leave much.
I've seen it many times, but never a nice buck as this.
It had to be a wounded animal.
Nothing is wasted in nature.

Congratulations Pole Brook. That's a nice Adirondack buck. I don't necessarily think that buck Justin found had to be wounded for the coyotes to take it down. There was a video I saw somewhere recently (you tube I think) where two coyotes took down a nice buck right in front of someone's trail camera which recorded it. That's a nice set of horns. I'd have been tempted to pack those out, though I'm not sure if that would be legal or not.

I would have definitely packed those out or at least hung them high and dry till the season was over.

Honestly, I was tempted to take the antlers, but decided to leave him be and not disturb the remains, being that I wasn't the one who had taken him. I don't need any bad karma right now haha. I figured that I'd share the photo and ask around a bit, as maybe by chance someone viewing had wounded him and then lost him, and wanted to claim the rack. If I had stumbled upon the antlers only, I definitely would've taken them.

Congrats on the buck PBW! He has an interesting rack.

Those are heavy-duty antlers on the gravel bar buck.

Great work PBW. Like you said, things can change in an instant in the deer woods! Congrats on a fine buck and another memorable season.

Well, deer season is over. In a previous post I wrote about hanging in there for the last part of the season, which is my favorite in the right conditions. We didn't get anything big, but we did kill four bucks in the Adirondacks between Thanksgiving and the last day of the late muzzleloading season. My partner shot a spike buck this past Saturday and antlers fell off right after he shot it. We had to look for them in the leaves.

Congrats to all the successful hunters this year and hats off to those who put forth a solid effort, deer or no deer.
