    I don't know.......I would be tempted to spend halftime in the yard, showing my buddie my deer rifle; then hanging him in the garage to age a little.

    I'm just trying to figure out if he's in WI or MI........I'll guess Michigan since I grew up in Wisconsin and never saw deer the size of that.....at least it makes me feel better

    I thought it was when people stopped asking where the caribou are.. then again season closes March 31st.. and the drawings for next year will be posted by then so a new wave of folks will want to know where to find a caribou.. so I guess it never ends..

    I don't know why we call it hunting SEASON. All of you know as much as i do it's hunting life. Once you've harvested or decided that you did not get anything this year work starts on looking for next years game. It's just a cycle that never ends.

    I understand what you're saying, but, it not "us" necessarily saying hunting "season"........F&G has a lot to do with that scenario.....lol

    Still, the season doesn't end...the targeted species just changes. Tomorrow my wife and I will be looking for lynx, fox, or coyotes.

    As for the mount, that does indeed look cool. My brother has a couple in his room in a similar pose.

You should post a pic on that "book" thread as that buck looks to be flirting with the Boone. Rack looks Canada-ish.

    Definitely photoshopped (the football game that is).

    D&DH reader Joe Loomis, relives the hunt for his 207-inch buck with the full body mount.
