Anyone deer hunting this year? I've put meat in the freezer, but no trophies.

The rut is starting here in Madison County. Hopefully, I get an opportunity this weekend.

Shoot straight,
Moose

Really hoping I can get my truck fixed in time to go back out before the season ends. I've only been able to go once this year, and on my way out of the woods my 4x4 wouldn't engage and I got stuck. I did see a small doe though that I watched until it got too dark to see her.

Haven’t had chance to go hunting but have seen many on my cameras (near Arab). Largest was an 8 point that went by one of my shop cameras yesterday afternoon.

Maybe I’m being taunted? Plus this morning a bobcat went by

@Dfalt No sir! I wanted to do it myself but my buddy at work swindled me into letting him do it. Any of you guys hunt WMA?
If you ever decide you want to it's not that bad. Just get a big pot and one of those propane cookers people fry turkeys outside in on Thanksgiving. Fill the pot with water and a small bottle of Dawn dish soap, then stick the head in up to the antlers and boil till all the flesh comes off. Once the flesh is off bleach the skull in peroxide but don't let it get on the antlers or they'll get bleached too.

Another way to do it is to bury the head up to the antlers in the dirt then cover the antlers with a plastic tub or bucket and wait about 6 months for nature to do its thing. Only thing is that the skull will take on a bit of the color of the dirt it was in but it shouldn't be too noticeable after bleaching.
