Record Quest: Public Land Buck

Record Quest: Public Land Buck

With a little luck and a lot of hard work, I was able to punch my tag on public land in New York.

Interesting thought TheITguy...I've let deer hang before butchering and have found absolutely no difference in meat taste/texture when I have. Deal with Alex' buck is that there was no way to hang it in a meat locker where we could control the temperature which I think is key. I've seen many deer ruined by guys who have killed deer and hung them up and have then seen temperature fluctuations of 20 or more degrees. THAT is never good and just leads to messed up meat.

Congrats, very jealous, haven't got one like that yet in my limited hunting career. I would say though you may want to hang your deer for a few days before butchering if you can (not nitpicking here), it just tastes better after letting the meat age a bit. Congrats again!

I think the correct term is "crochety, old OL editors".

This is a great story and that is a beautiful public land DIY buck!

Gerry, I'd certainly give you 1/2 of any deer you help butcher...

Great Work!!! I hunt public land in NY on the other side of the Hudson and would be more than happy to tag out with a buck like that. Well Done!!!!

Hey Alex---Funny how you weren't calling me 'old' when I was slicing, dicing and vacuum sealing your deer (of which I got NO meat).

Hey Alex,

Congrats on your NY buck man!

You'll laugh, but I've hunted turkeys there a time or two (shh). Chances are I've been on that same trail!

Enjoy the post-hunt man. You did earn it.

Later,
Steve

Congrats on your buck. Great looking deer and by the sounds of it a great hunt as well. Nicely done.

Great Job! Sleeping over night in the vehicle, your hunting passion burns highly. As for antler size I would have to say I know local woodsmen out here in Western Montana who haven't bagged a buck of that size. How can it get any better you get a hard work out, with the meat that kings would fight over & even better you can use that same drag trail next time & it will be much easier! :-) Got some good friends willing to teach you the ropes, hope you share more hunts in the future.
