As bitternut did, using the 'right' equipment helps get the big ones home.  This deer is in a Deere tote.

I shot a 8 point from a tree stand at a pond I had dug just for the sole purpose of hunting.  about 30 yards late evening first day of season, there were two young does feeding under the post oak tree that I built the stand in and the buck was more interested in them than looking out for me.  The rack was a perfect 8 point but not too large a spread.  My wife ground up most into hamburger, mixed with bacon.  We fried the back strap and tenderloin, made bar-b-q out of one sholder and saved a whole ham for a roast.  I take the ham and season it with salt and pepper smother it in onions and butter and wrap it in about 4 or 5 layers of foil and cook it about 4 or 5 hours in the smoker.
     It is farm country here in southern Missouri and they have plenty to eat, it was really fat, been in someones cattle feeder probably.

Here is another way of getting them home

 :D :D :D :D   8)

Aside from riding the bike, I could picture my grandfather doing that. He used to lug deer a long way because he never hunted near a road, had to go way back into the woods. The last deer he shot we had to get the Dang thing across 2 beaver ponds and clearcut. The deer dropped within 100 feet of where he shot it. :D
Move'n on.

 Not the biggest but my 11 year old son got A 120lb spike buck.
 I dressed it for him,tied the rope on it and said there you go, He drags it about 10 ft, stops, ties the rope around his waist and drags it another 10 ft, stops and says " Dad this dang thang is heavier than me" :D :D :D
 He only weighs 90 lbs :D

Some of you guys have got some nice deer. Kirk 225lbs is big-did you have it weighed or just aproximating?
The Dang weather is really hurting my hunting time. We keep getting blizzard like conditions then when it is half way nice I have to work. :(

Okie, we use to guess the weight but a couple years ago I got a whopper and took it to DNR and had the weigh it.  I was way off.  I guess it to be 200 lbs and turns out it was 249 field dresssed.  After that I bought a scale from Cabelas and we make bets on who the closest is to guessing the weight .

The buck I got this year was 225 lbs and the doe was 150.

Our gun season was last weekend and the buck on the right was 210 lbs, 9 point and the fork horn buck on the left was 145 lbs.

I wish I could take credit for the photo but it was Chad who took the pic and sent it to me.  Thats his Dad in the photo, trying not to stand in the mud from washing out the deer.

The deer have vanished for me, the only ones I've seen so far where dead on the roads. None have visited my corn pile or salt lick, Very weird 1st time occurrence.
