Steve seems to go where no others care to tread. That's the secret, hunt large tracts and go where the lazy folks won't. If you want big bucks, then you got to work for them. I bet that bruiser has never encountered a human and never expected to. He underestimated Bigsteve.

Terry it's a 8 mile boat ride to where I took this deer I killed a good one in the same place last year there is no access from the other side without walking through the deer and it's 3/4. Of a mile from the road if the road is open the boat is the best option and as you said you have to commit to be successful even If it hurts look at the took map and go to the most secluded place with cover and food not rocket science

My secret to success on taking mature bucks is commitment to a hunting stile I have tweaked over many years of trial and error I make as many mistakes as the next guy but I learn from every expierence big deer are the most elusive animal in the woods they are mostly nocturnal they live a very secluded life except in the summer and when love is in the air as I have said before do not hunt when conditions are not perfect my set up I had the wind in my face and the river to my back eliminating any chance of him busting me I knew he was in the area saw him earlier in the season left him alone only hunted him once only saw small bucks I took advantage of his weakness when the first does were in eustrus bucks really chasin any doe where they are ready or not I do not use trail cams , feeders or green fields these big deer do not like high traffic areas I have seen them travel several miles at night but return to their core area in daylight and do not pressure them sometimes they will disappear if you do I had a friend who had pics of a big 11 pt I killed in 2012 2 miles from where I killed him at 4:00am the morn I killed him sometimes trail cams make you hunt the wrong area. As do green fields and feeders most of the bucks you see will be at night and will be long gone in daylight. I hunt fresh sign I'm always mobile if the sign isn't fresh I move and find something fresh if I do not have such a spot I will sacrifice a hunt and scout it's my way and it works for me

That's truly an awesome public land buck! Big congrats!!!

You sure aren't lucky cause you kill quality bucks every year. Luck only happens every few years if ever. I will pm you later to pick your brain on a couple situations I know little about.

Thanks we been hitting a different CA every trip. Love the challenge of putting all the pieces together and watching the plan unfold. Work unfortunately keeps me from tweaking my hunting success. I've only killed a 140" on public land so far. I'm not a die hard horn porn person as I enjoy the art of hunting itself more than trophy deer on my wall. Yes I hunt for big deer but the journey, friendship, stories and passing the love of the outdoors to my sons and younger kids it's what drives me most. If I had to go deer hunting w a tape measure I'd quit lol.

I would be lying if I said I don't hunt big bucks but as you I also love the challenge of a new place to hunt on public land any buck is a trophy I have been watching this area for a couple years killed a 140 8 pt there last year it has everything needed to hold big bucks I saw this buck the second week of Oct knew he was there and took advantage of his weakness enjoy your sons mine are grown and we don't get to hunt like we use to
I did not start taking big bucks until I started hunting big bucks I complety ' restructured my approach most hunters just do not realize the quality of bucks they hunt around most are totally nocturnal especially in high traffic areas it takes special detication to harvest these giants but not impossible

It really depends on the does they estrus every 28 days the bucks stay ready this year they seem to be a little early but rhe rut will not vary much from year to year the key is to find a hot doe if you are lucky enough then the bucks will follow to me the early rut I tend to see multiple bucks more often and they will still chase the does even if some are not in cycle your answer to Nov is yes even Oct if a doe comes in it may be a short window only 48 hrs what is referred as the peak rut is when the most of the does are receptive not all some. Will be earlier some. Later I seem to have more successful hunts in the chase phase before the rut when the first does start to cycle the bucks are on the hunt up and moving they are the most vundrable at this time I am no expert these are what I have seen in the field the more time you spend in the woods the better chance you have for success some hunters get the misconception that you just go to the woods and the deer will come remember they are still wild animals and spend most of their time in seclusion the best place to encounter one is in his house away from the beaten path
