    You guys can't see the forest through the trees. He alder shot the buck but...yep you kilt it!

    Rule #1: You shoot it you eat it! How did it taste and how long did you have to boil it before it got tender?

    I actually wish I had a chain saw at the time, would have made for an interesting conversation piece in the man cave. I have many great memories of lost opportunity's over the years and this will just add to the collection!

    That's a great attitude to have. When it's your first deer, you might get salty, but as you gain experience and kills, these little hiccups simply enrich you as a hunter.

    Well, its a good bet it didnt run off. I would put it in the man cave. As long as it is the last one.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Problem now is I am about a 100 plus miles from it and won't be back until next fall!

    Likely it will remain with its herd in the area. Take the saw next year.

    If I remember I will, that 10 pointer will probably be dancing in my head when I pack up to go back. :drool:

    Hmmm.......Normally you would take your trophy deer head and mount it on a wooden shield. Wonder how you would mount a trophy piece of wood.............Maybe put it on a deers head?..............

    Go back and cut it out then mount it on another section of tree trunk like twa mounted those deer heads! It's worth the effort, and it'll give you something to talk and laugh about for years to come! It's Hickory, by the way! About as tough a species as you have in your area. Soft lead muzzleloader projectile did a hellova job, didn't it!
