While flipping through the sports channels at lunch today, I caught a glimps of a nice buck on the screen. Quickly flipping back to that channel I got to see a 3 1/2 year-old Midwest buck bust the "pro" hunter and run off. But the amazing new information I learned from this "pro" was that mature bucks have better eyesight, hearing, and sense of smell than other deer... Really? Their vision, hearing and olfactory senses increase with age? I did not know that...


Oh, and I also learned that a 3 1/2 year-old 9-point buck with a 14-inch OUTSIDE spread, 3-inch browtines, 8-inch G2s and G3s, and one 3-inch G4 is a "mature" sure-nuff 150...

Wow. I didn't know I had so many 150s in my area.

It's getting closer and closer to archery season so I find myself watching more and more of the hunting shows. While the way they hunt has little to do with the way I hunt TN, I do love seeing deer, so I watch.

Yea I dont buy that. But they are little wiser than most lol. My uncle watched a buck lay down in a soybean field when it was spotted. That big bog laid his head sideways so his antlers wouldnt stick out and blended right in!

As for the scoring, Seems like I hear the 150s quite often here in Tn. I'd say the majority of hunters have never even really seen a 150 gross buck in a lifetime.

I had a friend witness a mature buck some years back on Laurel hill wma come sneaking off a ridge into a cove on the lake and lay down in the water up to his antlers while some talking hunters walked across a ridge above the lake.....after hearing them pass the ole buck got up out of the water and gingerly walked off into the woods.......would love to have seen that. He was in a boat fishing.

Yup, a bow hunter. The funniest part was when he did shoot a buck, it ran way, way out of sight (on camera) before dropping, and he said, "That new 'XYZ' broadhead really did the trick. That buck didn't run more than 20 yards before dropping!"

That was the longest 20 yards I've ever seen.

Some of the shows are a joke. I only watch a few. I watch Bill Winke but I watch his online throughout the season. He's probably the only one I really get tips from. Whitetail Properties used to be ok but they have more and more "sponsors" they have to mention every year seems like. Most of the shows I watch aren't even whitetail hunting. I like watching Yukon moose and adventure hunting. And if you can stand listening to Cody Robbins talk, his mule deer hunting is good to watch. But they all got that money on they mind and will bounce around wherever the money is. They swear by one broadhead one season and then next season they swear by the other one. More about the money than the good old fashion pursuit..

They are ridiculous when it comes to denying bad shots. I watched one shoot a buck just in front of the hams and he says, while still in the stand, "Barely hit one lung!"

My favorite gonad squencher is when they say..."dropped him right in his tracks, never took a step. That broadhead REALLY put 'em down!" and it was a spine shot. Sometimes you can hear the animal rustling around in the background while the "pro" hunter is fist pumping and congratulating himself on his perfect arrow placement.

Makes me sick !

Thats exactly why up until a week ago i hadnt watched my outdoor channels in over a yr. Its gotten to stupid. I like watching the Drury Bros on anything there on. But theres not many more i care for. The only reason im halfway watching it nowadays is because im getting the fever. But id rather turn it on there and mute the tv to not here the nonsense and just see deer.

One of the biggest reasons I hate hunting shows is the fact they add 1-3 years to every bucks life and in many cases a minimum of 25" of antler. Not to mention the cold hard "facts" they put out

Hinting shows are simply informercials anymore...... rarely any good information other than what next widget you have to have in order to keep up with the latest deer killing technology.

I use to watch hunting shows just to look at the deer. Since moving to TN I haven't really watched any hunting shows. If I want to see deer and observe their behavior I just go for a ride or walk and watch them and how they interact. I learn much more by watching the local deer and it is more entertaining to me.

Haha!!! I've actually done that a couple times. My wife is like why do you have it on mute. I say because my commentary is better. Now instead of that, I just pop in a old hunting dvd , you know the ones that are some what informative

Yall who want to watch hunting shows, but not the BS on the outdoor channel, watch some youtube videos. Look up channels such as The Field Archer, Bow Mullet, Leatherwood Outdoors, Outdoor Addixtions (CAW), etc. They all have quality real hunting videos.

I got a new camera tree mount an camo duck taped it up! Can't wait to try and get better footage... Getting the kill shot is tough, and I did my best yet with turkey this spring and hope to improve more with deer this fall. Look forward to seeing your videos this upcoming season. I watched one from Kansas this morning (the buck that came in downwind off camera) and it started me on a train of YouTube hunting videos that got me the itch in the worst way.

That Kansas hunt was one of may favorite all time hunts, even if we didn't get the kill shot on film. Just got the mount back a few weeks ago and have been re-living it ever since!

I thought your turkey videos turned out great. They are much tougher to film than deer hunts, that's for sure. Which camera arm did you get?

http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=1168926 Solid construction from what I can tell, I like it.

I'm not sure what will be harder - turkey filming or treestand bowhunting filming. Seems like the bowhunting is a bit tougher, but this tree mount should make a big diff. Main reason I didn't get my 3rd doe on screen last year, is because my camera was on a tripod in a small space and the wooden treestand would have blocked the view of the deer. Won't worry about that with the tree mount.

Have you seen the one where the "hunter" is all but waving at the buck as it's coming in, and the buck looks up at him, then bolts? The "hunter" turns to the camera, with the most dumbfounded look, and says, "don't know what happened, could have been a coyote nearby, or anything." Yep, buddy, keep flailing your arms, pointing and waving at the camera, and those yotes will get ya busted every time.

I am almost 70-years old and have been hunting for 60-years. Not once have I seen a deer go fishing, let alone in a boat. \:\)

Don't want to side track this thread but a quick something I watched a mature buck do one day. We were having deer drive and I was a stander along the edge of the timber and a gas line grownup with 3 foot high saw grass. The deer were headed my way and I could see a good buck behind a few does. I stepped to the edge of the gas line so I could get a shot at him as he crossed. The does all bounded across but the buck hit the ground and belly crawled across the line and didn't get back to his feet until he reached the timber on the other side. They're slick.

I know of several instances where older bucks were observed belly-crawling across openings they had to cross under human pressure.

I shot one belly crawling under a fence. Dang, I bet that was 30-years ago. I had forgotten all about it.

That is incredible, I would have never imagined that...unless he just had an itch ;\) like dogs do. In all seriousness though that is neat. I can't say I've ever witnessed any truly strange behavior that is even close to that.

You have to wonder when people say deer can't think, huh? I've read of such behavior but have never witnessed it. Probably have had it used on me by a buck or two I'm sure.

Did you know you can tell a deer's age by counting the number of points on the left antler. On mule deer, it is the right antler. On elk, you count all points and average them. With moose, it is the width minues 60". Caribou have no age.

I saw that on the internet so it must be true.

No, that is the left front leg.

While flipping through the sports channels at lunch today, I caught a glimps of a nice buck on the screen. Quickly flipping back to that channel I got to see a 3 1/2 year-old Midwest buck bust the "pro" hunter and run off. But the amazing new information I learned from this "pro" was that mature bucks have better eyesight, hearing, and sense of smell than other deer... Really? Their vision, hearing and olfactory senses increase with age? I did not know that...


Oh, and I also learned that a 3 1/2 year-old 9-point buck with a 14-inch OUTSIDE spread, 3-inch browtines, 8-inch G2s and G3s, and one 3-inch G4 is a "mature" sure-nuff 150...

Wow. I didn't know I had so many 150s in my area.


That sounds like the Kroger near my house. You have to watch out for all the nascar drivers in their three wheeled sports carts, but I tell you what they pick out the best corn in the vegi aisle. But when when comes to the self check out NASA gets disappointed at the launch time, the rut must be over by then I guess
