2019 hunting results

Postby plant_one » Tue Nov 19, 2019 12:12 pm

as many of you know, my family has 140 acres on the pine river just sw of the mt.pleasant area that among other things is the family deer camp. had a great year this year! this was a personal record for us of most bucks taken in a single season.

my brother got a decent 7pt during late end of bow season and we took 8 bucks and a doe on opening weekend of firearm season - 4 bucks and the doe fell to 450 bushy's, my 6 pointer included.

my dad took an 8 and a 6 with his 30-06, my one cousin got a 7 and a one horn spike (160 yds) he though was a doe(barely 3½ horn) with my 450 upper, our friend took a 5 pt and a doe with his suppressed 450, i got my 6 as mentioned opening morning, friend got a 4pt (his first buck, 12g) and my cousin took a 3pt at about 225 yds with his 7mm mag.


we had one deer that got lost this year after tracking for several hundred yards. lung shot - we found several large lung chunks right before the blood stopped - and then gone. we suspect that the exit wound was plugged by the destroyed lung tissue.



all the 450 kills were taken with hornady black 250 ftx and were vital shots. 4 were double lung/liver and one was heart/lung. all bullets passed through as expected.

mine made it about 65 or so yards before he collapsed. he was at about 50 yds when i smacked him and he hunched up good when he took the hit.

one pretty much piled up on the spot and didnt make it more than a few feet, the other 3 traveled between 35-65 yds. pretty much textbook vitals kills.


pics will follow as we get them hosted and sorted out.

Sounds like a good year. Congratulations. What was the unrecovered deer hit with? That’s always a bummer to not recover one hit like that.

Finally got the pics processed up. Do not have pics of the one horn wonder or the doe...

The buck with the knife in the horns is my 6 with both sides broken at the g3

I'll tag my buck on. 7pt, 16" inside, 9" G2's, taken the 20th with my savage built 45 raptor and a 200gr barnes. Had planned on using bonded shockwaves but made a last minute switch.
