« on: October 23, 2017, 12:07:17 AM »
My deer on the far right shot Tuesday 4X5, Middle deer my daughters her 1st WA buck on Thursday 5X5, Son in-law shot the spike on Friday, Daughter also shot her antlerless (Second deer) on Saturday. Great week of hunting and memories. All 204 Okanogan deer.

When I pass, do not let my wife sell the guns for what I told her they cost.

That's fine it stayed below freezing the whole time. Were you camping up high?

As long as its not warm out that doesn't hurt anything. We always let our white tails hang for a few days before skinning and processing(when the weather cooperated).

I am not opposed to golf, for I suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering deer.

Nice bucks, I spent 7 days up in 204 and was in deer everyday but wasn't able to spot a buck until the last full day.  Couldn't get out of the truck quick enough, ironic to spend so many miles on foot and see nothing shootable then drive past 2 whitetail bucks >:(

Thank you all for the replies, this was a great year. We had no idea the area we picked this year was going to be so successful. I usually hunt the National forest and the Wildlife area and get deer almost every year.

Yes I left the hide on, the storm came in on Tuesday the day I shot my deer it was 25deg that night, and it snowed on Friday night. I don't think it ever got above 45 during the day. When skinning and boning them out on Saturday mine was the coldest still.

Dropped them off at the Taxidermy this morning and he was really happy with how they looked.

Gorgeous 10 pointers!  That toad on the right has great mass and symmetry.  Well done!
