Nice video Bioguide...

Very nice video of your Muzzle loading camping / hunting trip Bioguide. You do a great job of letting the viewer enjoy the experiences you have had in the great Adirondacks and show some of the small details that would otherwise go unmentioned. Good luck on your return. Hope you bag that mature buck in your area!!

Thanks Stillhunter. I'm learning all the time and had I only kept "still while hunting" my way out I might have seen those two I spooked before they saw me. Good luck to you on your hunts as well. Cheers

We're primarily drive hunters.This mountain has been good to us. We kicked the smaller-racked buck (which is 50-pounds heavier than the big-racked buck) past the young hunter (in the middle) earlier in the day but he didn't get a shot at him. So, we did a wrap-around back towards the same watch line. A long walk for us drivers but it worked. The smaller buck was jumped by one of the drivers who dispatched him. The shooting got some deer moving and the next thing you know the other guy's shooting. Yet another guy shot at a spike and missed, which is funny because even another guy passed on that spike twice. It was some serious dragging but we got them out. We consider ourselves pretty lucky.

Thanks for sharing the story. Must have been a very fun and satisfying day to get two nice bucks and have additional opportunities. Very memorable for sure. Open sights are great for that kind of fast action. Congratulations to you and the entire gang!

I spent 3 nights into our tent camp. Went in Thursday before the storm. Hunted snow all weekend, tracked 2 bucks to their bed and got busted each time and couldn't catch up to them in pursuit. Had a blast. Only found one scrape after the storm? Just not happening in my area yet, plenty of rubs but lack of scrapes. Snow was melting fast. I'm headed up again for one night tomorrow and back up for the weekend.

On a similar note: Robin posted, on his forum (canoetripping.net), a really nice picture of a buck being carried out of Lows Lake a couple of weeks ago.

Here is the link and photo (Robin I hope you don't mind):

So there I was, fish on the mind but my fingers wouldn't work anymore, so I decided to hunt so I started out duckin in and out of the brush pushing my way through the woods. This is one of those buck stories that you just would have had to been there to believe it, I was the only one there so you'll just have to take my word for it. I knew that it was my day i had that itch, yah know? That tingling in my spine that told me that I was gonna bag me a buck on this fine day, so no sh!t there I was, on da trail of a monster not yet knowing where he might be but knowin he was there. So there I was in the brush really getting into the hunt, and then all of a sudden there he was 😳 Stood about 7 foot tall and had at least a 3 foot spread so I rubbed my eyes a few times and I thought to myself holy jeez there he is da monster of da woods, I was thinkin jeez I gotta lay off the supperior beer (Busch Light) but then I realized that I wasn't even drunk (not yet) so there I was sober as a stone staring face to face with monster (which Upon closer inspection I discovered to be a moose), then I realized that this here moose was a sign sent from the almighty himself I realized that I needed to follow this here moose, I was destined to bag me a buck and he was gonna lead me to it. So I followed this critter for a while to the place where I knew I was gonna bag me a buck. Then there he was starring me in the hairy eye ball all horns and nuts. So I leveled the ol frog popper on his front shoulder and put him in a heap right there. And that's the story behind that photo, believe it or not that's how it happened

ADKpikebuster... that is a classic photo of the buck being carried to the waters edge by game pole. Could be right out of an AF Tait classic Adirondack painting. Very well composed photo. Thanks for sharing the short story as well. Are you in the picture or were you taking it? Looks like a couple of strong young hunters to carry that big buck with this method. Thanks for sharing. It is inspirational.

(On a separate update - I was able to hunt for 2 days late last week on rapidly melting snow and on and off rain on Saturday. Saw 1 doe up close and plenty of good sign in the areas I hunted. Good luck to everyone).

Congrats ADKPB on a fine hunt and, yes, that is a fantastic picture.

We had some more luck this weekend, including our young hunter, age 17, getting his first ADK buck. It was a fat 4-pointer and this kid is on Cloud 9. I haven't downloaded the photos yet but I will. It was a great experience for our entire crew, but especially for him and his father.
