Nice buck Todd!!
Gorgeous buck Todd. Congrats!
That’s a beauty! Congrats.
Beautiful Buck Todd, nice wide rack !
well hreat kill, but now we need to put muzzle loader season after bow season in dec. i am tired of watching these cheap muzzle loaders get to hunt before regular seaso, muzzle loader season shoul be after the second bow season in decenber!, it is really bad taht muzzle loaders and bow hunters hunt before rifle season, their guns are cheap and are not muzzle loaders, they are a way fro people to but these rifes that they can load as fast as a rifle, and we need to face this problem before next season, if muzzle loaders want to use black powder great but not until after turkey season in december, their guns and ammo are much cheaper and they are also the most dangerous gun,s that we have in the woods, they need to be last in hunting season, or make a choice in regular deer season, hunt wit you muzzle loader, and compete with regular high powered rifles, either way it would give rifle huters more of a chance to kill bigger buck,s!muzle loaders arwe cheap and like bows cost less tha a quality high pwered rifles, but since the regular rifle season , we don’t get to see all the big bucks as do muzzle loaders and bow season because the deer are spooked at everything that move,s or a stick cracks.s as a law abiding citzen i think my voice should be heard!, i have hunted in a great place which i scoutedway before rifle season and saw a bunch of deer, however since the regular season i have saw one doe, no bucks and my friends that hunt with me agrre poyMUZZLE LOADER AND BOW SEASON IN DEC. NOT IN OCTOBER! OF COURSE IF THEY WANT CHANE THE RULES, THEN THEY SHOW BUY BACK OUR RIFLES, AND AMMO, PLUS CLOTHING, AND YOU CAN HOLD MUZZLE LOADER ALL SEASON BUT THEN YOU HAVE TO HAVE GAME WARDENS WATCHIN IN SOUTHWEST, VA.FOR THE REDNECKS KILLING THEM BEFORE SEASON BY SPOTLIGHTING. THE BALL IS IN THE GOVENOR,S LAP NOW, SO LET ALL RIFLE HUNTERS SEND LETTER,S TO THE GOVENOR TODAY!
Great buck Todd!! Congrats!!!
