After a long season, i finally got a decent buck. Jacked way up in my climber before daylight in a dog hunt area were I know there are some good bucks. Sat for about 30 minutes before this guy was pushed my way. I wouldn't have gotten a shot if I wasn't 25 feet up in a tree. Shot him on the run at about 50 yards. His neck was a little swollen, and he didn't stink too bad. My best eglin buck.

BlueH20Fisher (1/23/2010)Nice deer. Looks like the dogs were on the right track. Were they affiliated with you?
I'd guess no according to his description. Then again I'm only ASSUMING this.

I believe that's what is known as being a Pot Hunter.

Not bashing just sayin'. Some people don't care for it, others could care less as long as somebody kilt a deer.

Just always be ready for the ones that don't like it if you killem ahead of their dogs.

Good job and good deer.

I know the guys running the area and have hunted with them in the past. They were just glad someone killed a deer. Like they said, They wouldn't have even seen the deer much less gotten a shot. I was about a 1/2 mile off a road down a creek bed.

Collard- are you saying you wouldn't shoot a buck just because some dogs were pushing it? I doubt it! A lot of dogs hunters think they own public land where they hunt.

I thought the idea of hunting was to put yourself in a position, to outsmart and intercept an animal you wish to take. Seems like he did that. Not many hunters would think, or have the balls to walk a half mile through dog hunting territory and jack up a tree. Congrats on the deer and innovative thinking.

Who do you know that dog hunts out there? I know several guys that do too.

Great deer! I've thought about still hunting in dog areas and know people who do. Personally, I don't think I can sit where the dogs are running actively, but I will set up in a stalk area near a dog unit because the trucks and dogs will get the deer up and moving into the stalk units. Good tactic in the early season when the deer aren't moving in daylight.

You get the hardcore award.

<SPAN id=_ctl1_ctlTopic_ctlPanelBar_ctlTopicsRepeater__ctl8_lblFullMessage>Kinda defeats the purpose of hunting if you ask me..... Thats just my opinion
You must be a dog hunter. I dog hunted in Blackwater for years. And, I actually killed my first deer running dogs in Eglin 32 years ago. I am not sure why you would try to bash a hunter for killing a legal deer, in a legal hunting area. I cannot stand when people get on here and try to act holier than thou!!! Cutting other peoples dogs with a vehicle is one thing. But, stitting in a stand is another. Please set there and tell all of us that if you were on a stand while running dogs from the North and a pack of dogs that you knew were not your parties came from the South pushing a wall hanger right over the top of you that you would let him go because that is just the right thing to do. Please tell us that. If you say that you would, I am going to set here and tell you in front of everybody that you sir are full of shit. Have a good one. Congrats on your buck man, and sorry that some folks take stabs at others because they ain't got nothing to post.

Oh, and Borty is that a Meostar scope your sporting there? If so, I have a 12X56 that I mounted atop a .270 Tika SS this year and I love mine. It is the best scope that I have ever had by far. The buck I killed at 200yds on the 1st of Jan looked liked it was 20yds in front of me. Take care bud.
