THE DEER ARE ON THE MOVE
My son Donald with his trophy buck!
October 25, 2004.... These last few storms
have been awesome for deer hunters. Most hunters worth there salt have
downed bucks the last few days.
Crocker Ridge has been great with lots of
good size bucks coming out of the D-6 area. My son Donald got a huge one,
a 6x5 and according to Taxidermist Richard Bernetti its one of the biggest
racks he has seen for a California Deer.
We will see what kind of job he does on the
mount in about 8 months.
The deer hunting in zone D-5 has been
tremendous also with Blaine Wilson of Modesto and Ken Moore of Ripon
bagging nice deer, no monsters but some forky's and three pointers for the
In the miss range there are lots of hunters
out there that have buck fever I guess because they are getting shots but
they are either missing are shooting blanks!
Check that scope and make sure you haven t
knocked it off line, one little bump and you can be off a mile.
If its buck fever try to settle down and get a good rest, then hold your
breath and squeeze the trigger, don t jerk it! A hunter should always try
to make that first shot a good one and don't rush it if possible!
