Well I got a crotch horn Tuesday, cut it up tonite! Nice fat little deer. ;D

Congratulations Woodhauler but what is a crotch horn?

I took a doe in bow season 2 weeks ago. She wasn't standing quite right and just stood there and let me take her. Come to find out she had been arrowed through the hind quarter and it looked bad! Most of the ham was black. The rest of the meet smelled, looked and tastes fine.

Must be what we call a fork horn. Congrats, as they are good eating. 

Different strokes, different folks... (old saying)

Between son and I, our bow season brought in 5 deer.. two 8 pt bucks and 3 doe.
Still gun season coming up this Sat. for 9 days.

Ah, I see, we call them 4 points.

WV gun season starts thanksgiving week.

Maryland bow season stays in till the end of January.
They still allow you to harvest unlimited does in my region.

We can't take fork-horns in our area. Antlers have to be 3 points on a side for ist buck and second one allowed must be 4 points on a side. Had to pass on another nice forked buck again today.

Thanksgiving morning I was standing on the side of a hill on my tree farm scoping a blown down walnut tree thinking I'll have to haul that one out, looks like it has some nice crotches in it. Suddenly I heard something running to my right, I swung around and 2 deer were running up the hill at me. I let out a bleat and one turned broadside at 30 yards. I took that one and the 2nd, a spike, kept coming until it stopped at 15 yards and presented it's neck from behind a tree I took that one too. In about 30 seconds I filled my WV tags.
 They changed the law in our county so you can take 2 deer a day in gun season and you can check them in at the same time.

 My freezer is getting full but there is still some room for a Maryland buck.

As they say, the hunt is over and the work begins after the shot.  Double congrats to you Jon.   :o
