Well my Uncle has a backhoe that after I shot it on his property, we used it to hang it up to skin and bone it out. Worked great.

Had a true giant come by at 20 yards last night. Main frame 5x4 muley with eye guards. One of the dozen does around him busted me and that was that. He was light sparring with another buck at 20 yards and I figured they'd be distracted so I tried to draw and she saw me move and raised hell.  :bash:  :cryriver:

Wa buck not the outcome I wanted as coyotes picked it clean in a day. Bittersweet end of WA deer for me. Pissed and I guess happy I turned him up. Woulda never looked where he was recovered. Learn something new.

C'mon, give us a better luck at that rack! Is it a 6x6 with a little trash? Sorry it didn't turn out the way you hoped.

I watched him run about 40 yards down off the ridge, I couldnt find blood after that so I did the logical thing as it was down hill with heavy cover I grid searched 9 miles in total 500 yard hillside brought a dog and wife flew drone. Buck after I shot must of ran and hooked right and went back passed my stand over a small ridge and down below my stand 150 yards. I walked a road 40 yards past him that day.  :(

That's a sad deal huntnnw. He looks pretty mature, I'm sure he passed on his genes.

Man that sucks. But at least you recovered it.
Sometimes recovery is the biggest battle.
Still looks like a nice one.👍
Minus the meat of course.
Congrats 👍
