I read alot in outdoor magazines you ever notice that ND is never talked about for big bucks. I think our state is very competitive with the talked about big buck state like Kansas and Iowa. What do you guys think?

That's because we don't have any big bucks. The big buck contests are won every year by farm raised deer and forgeries like sota and buckseye.

Big bucks willonly bring more Texas like conditions in the pay-for-hunt arena. So I suggest if you see one, you quickly shoot, shovel, and shut up.

good, I'd hate to see more non-resident bowhunters invading our state.

droptine,

Please go see the "New Photo Gallery Pics" thread for what our future will be if the big bucks magazines take an interest in ND.

I appreciate the way deer hunting is in our state right now. This is not the state to travel to for a trophy buck, getting trophies here is like the odds in the lottery. I probably will never get a trophy, but I do enjoy the deer hunting as it is in our state.

50 lbs or bigger and at least 3 inch antlers for a buck. Anything over 40 lbs and 4 inch ears for a doe.

Like they said, we have little deer in ND...

pepe I like all deer I have a photo album with all the deer we shoot, does and bucks alike. Nothing better than drinking a beer with the buddies looking at the pics, and reminicing about the hunts we have had. To be a mount it has to be 140 or better.

Our state is more about opportunity to harvest a deer not to produce big bucks. That is how it is and will be in the future too.

Just trying to start a topic. These guys that think they are great hunters and sportsman. Why do there gut deer in ditchs buy public roads,driveways of vacant farms? Then in the same breath can't figure out why there is so much posted land. There are thousand miles of fields and trees were nobody see this but hunters walking. I wish there was a fine for this stupid ploblem. I as a hunters safty instuctor seen another instructor from a diffrent town gutting a deer in a ditch. i said what are you doing he looked at me funny, I replied do you teach hunters safty? He said yes I said do we teach are students this? I got in my pickup and drove away, when I drove buy later they was no gut pile. the fact of the matter is a deer isn't that heavy to loadand gut away from public roads and vis versa!!!!!!!

walkwithwispers, I agree with you why let out the news we have enuff out of state hunters the way it is. The way I see it,its only getting worse!!! Because it seems were need to raise are prices but are Gameandfish dept. Keeps taking care of these guys, and other n.d. guys see $$ signs and keeping selling land. This paid hunting should be illegal these guys don't own the wildlife and i stress wildlife!! I don't want to see are kids having to pay to hunt its not about that!!!!!!!

300,

I gut them where they fall as a golden rule. Then again, I don't think I have ever had one fall in the ditch yet. More often than not they are a half mile or better away from a trail. But much of that is personal preference on my part.


As far as witnessing/knowing people who put in for three buck tags in the name of the kids and wife? Seriously, do you teach the hunters in training to call the authorities when they witness an illegal act, or do you just tell them to vent on FBO?

Seems to me that the latter is far less preferred.

allen I'am not venting just wondering if this go's on other places to. I see guys drive out get the deer then haul or drag to road or ditch and then gut. I do turn these guys in that shoot three deer because PARTY HUNTING IS ILLEGAL IN N.D. most people party hunt but whats the point. Besides its against the law to shoot any deer but the tags you have!!!!! And no bs guys really do put there wife in for tags and mom amd dads and they don't hunt.

Seems to me a gutted deer would be a much easier drag. Despite my love of hiking to see what's around the next corner, my laziness gets the better of me after I tag the deer and reflect on where the nearest road lies. :)

Winter, winter, winter, winter, winter, winter, winter, winter, winter, winter....

Should I write more winters?  They are the reason we have a wildlife boom in this state.  Folks with guiding businesses, etc will be in for a rude awakening when mother nature turns back to the "normal" side.  Just you wait and see.  Maybe not this year or the next but it will unleash her fury!
