This photo doesn't do justice to the rack that this
Pennsylvania hunter is holding. He took this near-perfect
Saskatchewan ten pointer while hunting out of a spike
camp. The green score is around 170 B&C. With very
few deductions, there is a chance that this buck may make
It was 91-degrees when I took this buck near Whitefish Montana. The deer were moving after dark and before daylight. This morning there was a lot of coyote activity along the Flathead River which prevented some of the deer from leaving the river bottom to return to their bedding areas on the mountain. Just as I released an arrow on this buck he jumped to clear a log that was across his path. The arrow missed it's intended mark and instead, struck him in the femoral artery, causing him to bleed-out in seconds and within ten yards of where he stood when I shot him---talk about getting lucky!
This buck was taken by Mike-2 In Saskatchewan (his buddy, Mike-1 is on another page)We had a 100% on bucks that week --- with three that scored over 170 B&C. It was a week of extremely warm weather and conditions that would normally be considered as "poor" hunting conditions for Saskatchewan. It just goes to prove that NO ONE can really predict when the hunting will be good or bad!
