east tn will not grow big bucks!!! congrats


It can (obviously), just not as often as in other areas.
It looks pretty often in his area. lol


Ha! True dat \:\)


You also have to consider that, from his descriptions at least, String Music does what 97% of other hunters are, for all practical purposes, incapable (yep) of doing; pinpointing bedding areas and successfully hunting them. I've tried and ain't cut out for it. -mad respect to anyone that can do that consistently and successfully because it takes a serious, hardcore, dedicated, disciplined hunter employing tactics far beyond the motivations of everyday deer hunters, even self described "serious" deer hunters. Its the kind of tactics you can read about and daydream about during the offseason, but, when it comes down to it just don't really have the deep down motivation to pull off, nor the confidence to "break the rules" of deer hunting that have been hammered into your head.


Thanks, Poser!

Habitat management can do wonders for antler growth. But you can't manage the habitat of an entire region.

If you look at the average antler size of bucks killed in the eastern-most counties--not just from individual managed properties--you will find older bucks from the mountains average far less antler per age-class than you would ever believe. The average 3 1/2 year-old buck from some of the eastern counties would be considered a well below average 2 1/2 year-old for other parts of the state.


Very true. Even when bucks reach maturity on our property, it's only the ones with good genetics that produce impressive racks. This buck represents that very small percentage.

Despite being the same age, this buck dwarfs the mature buck I shot two weeks ago. Same region, same nutrition, same age, but different genetics.

Loved your site and congrats on the buck! I am going to buy one of those turkey calls from Lawrenceburg.


Glad you liked it! I haven't had the time to update it in a LONG time, though!

Did you keep a jaw bone from him? If so can you post pictures of it?
