Finally got a buck with a FC. I didn't make the best shot, but the buck just walked off about 25 yards and laid down to expire. Thankfully, the end came pretty quickly for it. Complete pass through and found the arrow buried 12 inches deep in the ground. Now I have to inititate an Onza, and an Alien X on does. lol Notice the odd little "kicker" growing out between the antlers in the second pic. Not big enough to count, but kind of unique.51635164

Speedy, it was 15 when I went out this morning. Guessing about 20 when I shot him. Warmed up to around 28 by the time I got him home and took the pics. Nice and clear though, so no complaints. lol

Says who, I'm counting it, as far as I concerned, you're the first guy I know who's harvested a triceratops! Nice buck, however you count it E. :D

Thanks all. Well, I've caught enough grief over shooting that buck without my g/f being present, that now I have to wait on her to come back to town before I can go doe hunting. lol Gotta give her credit though, she's sat in the tree with me several times in some cold weather, just waiting for me to shoot a buck. Then the one morning I go out without her, bingo. Come to think of it, I didn't get a turkey this spring and she was with me most every trip......I smell a hunting Jinx. lol

thats a dandy! congrats.
you must be pretty thick skinned to be out in 20 degree weather in a long sleeve t shirt! or do you guys use celsius down in kansas. lol. what stage is the rut in your neck of the woods? i know its different in different parts of the south

Boo, it's post-rut here right now, but we always have a small "second rut" in mid-December. Actually, I think of the Dec. rut as the 3rd rut, since I see a little rut activity in mid-Oct. usually. Big rut of course in mid-Nov. As far as the cold, it was 20 degrees. Celsius isn't for the midwest. lol I had already taken off my outer layer for the pics. I always take it off before field dressing and dragging. Less laundry to do. lol

MLN, that was the first buck over 100-110 inches that I saw this year. I'd gotten a glimpse of him before, but wasn't sure about his size. Only saw him way back in the brush where it was hard to tell what he looked like. Most of what I've seen this year are in the 15-50 inch category though. lol

To show what I know. I don't even know what all that inch stuff is you are talking about.
