Chased this guy around all day yesterday. He was having a stand off with a spike yesterday morning with several does watching the show and I didn't quite get the shot. This morning with the wind that suddenly came up around 7:00am, he just about ran me over. I am not sure how all the scoring stuff works, he has 3 on one side and 4 on the other if you follow what my old friend Fletcher use to say, "Can you hang a ring on it?". I quartered him up and packed him out with help from my good friend John. I took him to Jim the Butcher and what a great guy. Jim is the friendliest guy I've ever taken deer too. I get two Christmas cards a year and one of them is Jim. I don't have this buck on game cam, so he must be moving around with the rut. Lots of ticks on me and the deer and I'm sure the poison oak will be kicking in on Tuesday.

Nice buck toad! Tall, dark and handsome.

If your friend is Flether Deihl, he's my friend too.

I've been picking ticks off of myself all day. Hope i missed the poison oak this time.

Congrats!

Nice Buck! You guys are going to make me venture away from Camp Pendleton for next years season. Although I will keep the G10 as a second tag.

Great buck Toad, well done. This is just getting awesome we are seeing some great bucks by all of you both alive and on the ground. I am truly with some great hunters and that was the vision of all of this was to see this kind of work and give everyone a chance to share it.

That is a great dark horn buck,

TA if you know Fletcher Diehl than you and I have way too much in common. I’m only 46 but I grew up with all these guys as a kid hunting with all of them. We will have to get together and have a few beers on our past, I’m sure there are some great stories to be told.

Here is a better antler picture. He had an eyeguard on only one side. I knew Fletcher years ago and learned at great deal through his wonderfull local hunting stories. I hope to see him again someday. That rifle is a .308 I had shortened for brush hunting. Recoil is pretty sharp with this small set up and I had trouble in the beginning keeping the scope anchored down. I use a matching set up in .223 for similar terrain as a predator calling rifle. The only thing I would do different next time is change the hammer to a modern swivel kind and maybe stainless steel since it takes a lot of abuse.

I've heard rumors or read somewhere there is a local guy who has the skull cleaning beetles. Can someone confirm this and point me in the right direction?
