    I am taking a camera in case a 120 buck gets harvested.
    You come back from this hunt with a DINK 120 Buck, and I will personally hunt you down to kick your butt Buddy!!
    There are some real Monster Bucks in that area, and 200 inches is really not out of the question!
    Study the hell out of as many pictures you can find of bucks that top 180, and DO NOT settle for anything less!
    They are there!

    Best of Luck my Friend!
    I am sincerely looking forward to the report and pictures!

    Cheers,

    Just wait 6 hours after harvesting him until he’s good and stiff then it’s as simple as a prop-up and stand 8 feet back. Make sure the person on the camera is good at lining your hands up with the antlers...

    I have only hunted prairie MD with a bow in Alberta but stalking them was a blast. My hunting was south of Calgary

    You are hunting with a rifle so probably don’t need it but crawling with camo netting helped in truly open stalks. In most cases getting close by using the coulee’s is enough

    We also had luck waiting in abush first thing in the morning

    Strangest buck was taken by my buddy. This deer would bed in an old run down barn and that is where he arrowed it. So don’t overlook any form of cover/wind break with prairie MD

    You should have a blast just follow the lead of the locals as you plan to already

    PS wear gloves hawthorn sucks

    Im off for 10 days starting right now. Ill be hunting about 700ks directly north of you. Late season bull moose, antlered Muley, antlered Whitetail and 2 supplemental antlerless Whitetail tags... I should be able to find something for the freezer.

    Springer will put you on a cranker for sure. Heres my 2016 Muley from just south of where you are going. Id set something like this as a minimum...

    GREAT Buck Fuzzy ! RJ

    -20 the last couple of mornings,rain and snow in the forecast for the peace country. Don’t know what it’s like down south but bring a toque and expect to shoot in the wind.
