    Per Dyno's request! LOL

    My Western Oregon Blacktail tag opened Oct 2, and ends Nov 5. Supposed to get a weather change this weekend. Should be good for getting them Ghosts moving.

    I knew the weather would do the trick...

    Was hunting a new area a friend had told me about... First thing in the morning in a clear cut unit, saw 5 deer and pretty sure one was a big buck in the floating clouds. I zigged to get a better look, and shot... they zagged on out the bottom never to be seen again. UUHHGG!!

    Later, going to investigate another unit, stumbled across a couple of deer near the road. I jumped out, saw a deer. Saw horns, took enough time to think it was a forked horn... UHG!!! It was a spike. Still legal, but I am done. If there is any consolation, it was a neck shot, so no waste of some good meat, should be some good eats. Would have been much happier with the big one. But it is what it is.

    Looking forward to going to Eastern Oregon next year... A friend was hunting the same unit I was supposed to hunt this year and took this Buck! (first pic)

    Another friend was hunting the Ochoco unit, and got what we are calling the Knife and Fork Buck. (second and third pic's). Although looks more like a dagger!

    Man you guys are getting the trigger finger itchy !!!
    Nice animals for a successful hunt.
    Was at cabin this weekend for Dad's Senior deer hunt. Saturday he saw nothing so I went up over hill for squirrels and or what else I could find. About 15 min I see 2 small bucks then I catch a glimpse of another deer, stayed put for a few minutes. Headed back up the trail and kicked out a decent 8 point that had bedded down while I smoked a cigarette on the trail. Didn't get anything due to winds picking up but got Dad pissed that I was seeing deer. He's still hunting this week while I go back to work.
