Dumb buck

Postby wawhitey » 11 07, 2020 •  [Post 1]

This little guy walked right up to me today as i was leaning against a tree glassing. Came to less than 10 yards and was hanging out until i finally said "boo" and he took off blowing at me. Recorded a 3.5 minute video of it.

He is just inexperienced. You probably educated him a little. Maybe he is not so dumb now.

I think its a genetic thing in WA

I had a little blacktail buck walk right up and nuzzle my gun barrel. A couple other hunters couldn't believe I didn't pull the trigger.

Finally got some snow today. Hoping for a much bigger, yet equally stupid buck tomorrow. Time to break out the rattling antlers!

And i thought that other whitetail was a dink. Had this little dude at about 25 yards today. :lol:

And a muley buck about the same size at 15 or 20 yards a couple hours before, but i didnt get pics as he kinda surprised me . Im just a small buck magnet.

They just like you Whitey. They want you to take them home for dinner.

Ill take them home for dinner if theyre tame enough to get in the bed of my truck, ride home, then they can hop out and ill pull a bale of alfalfa out of my barn for them. Id be glad to supplement my vanishing yard deer with some new blood. Between all the cats and wolves, yotes and bears, and the moron whose father in law owns the 240 next door thinking he can bring 6 guys to all shoot bucks on a 240 acre piece each year, the deer arent doing so well in my neighborhood.

How anybody could think you can kill 5 or 6 bucks per year on a 240 acre chunk of dirt without ruining it in short order is beyond me.

Those people don't care about the deer herds. Hunting is a social thing and deer is what brings friends around. Just my thought.
