dinkasaurus 2 a public land odyssey

Post  muddy on Mon Nov 12, 2012 9:47 pm

Had a great hunt this morning. Saw a few turkeys, some does, a dink or two, and then I saw a buck on a ridge far away from me. It's as simple as I banged the horns together, grunted a few times, and he came on a string from about 300 yards I suppose. As he came down the timber edge he was raking trees and brush, made a scrape right under me, and by the time I knew it he was dead again. It was a VERY cool hunt, there is just something about calling whitetails that makes me find it hard to keep my composure. He shrank like last years buck, but honestly I was so pumped up it was crazy. I put a great shot on him and he went about 50 yards and barrel rolled within sight. Thanks to DWilk and jmoose for dragging help, they can attest that Grim Reapers put a HURT on deer, it looked like I axe murdered 3 people out in the timber. Not much else to say, public land hunting is very frustrating (had 3 people and their dogs come by Saturday) and today it panned out. The pics are off my phone, I'll add some more when I get them from DWilk







Here's a few more pictures from the day. Nothing special really, just wanted to share the carnage. I know some of you are possibly upset by the fact I called the deer "Dinkasaurus", please remember that I'm someone not to be taken too seriously. Half the reason I used that name was because I shot the buck about 200 yards from where I shot my buck last year on the same chunk of public. This is also the 3rd buck I've shot on this same ridge in about 4 years. If I stood where this particular buck died I can see all 3 stand locations as well as where all 3 bucks died. Pretty good little piece.




I know many of you hate mechanicals, but I'm sold on Grim Reapers, they put a HURT on things.



Carting out of the public, this year I finally had help.

Congrats! My three best bucks, including this years Iowa buck have came off of DIY public land hunts. There are a few drawbacks but I LOVE public land hunting and the challenges that it brings. Gotta love the deer cart...I would still be dragging if I didn't have one. Congrats again!

Congrats Muddy. There is something so rewarding about getting it done on public land and those broadheads for sure are doing some serious damage.

Muddy, you struck a sweet spot for me with your story! I just love a public land quest. Congrats to you for a beauty of a quest!! That GR sure did leave a gaping hole. I can see why he fell in your sights! Can't wait to find out if you make it 4 for 4 next season!!

What a stud man. Public Land or not he is a hell of a deer and to get him on Public Land makes it that much more rewarding! Thanks for sharing
