Anyone ever actually get a big buck in CAPITAL FOREST
« on: September 16, 2017, 07:54:53 PM »
My buddy got an any deer tag in Capital Forest so I was down there with him today scouting... Some good looking area, but no deer today... I'm pretty sure it was because the time of day.
Question?
Has anyone seen or taken a big blacktail buck out of Capital Forest? If so post pics Id love to see them! I wont even be hunting there but would like to see what that area can produce besides people lol...
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

My buddy pulled a stud out of there last year, 3x3 bladed out with double eye guards  and our other buddy got a nice heavy forkie. I got a nice 2x3 out of there two years ago. I'd love to hunt there for the late rifle tag!
