A comment titled: Amen Brother in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

Couldn't agree with the last post any more than I do. Who expects a tagged deer fron wherever the hell he came from to be roaming the south Louisiana swamps. Shoot first (if you can) and ask questions later. Turkey Neck....sounds like you know DC. That's the exact story I heard straight from the horses mouth. Glad to see the jealous haters have finally given it a rest.

A comment titled: Losing in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

Didn't see it as a win/lose situation. I simply thought we were discussing a difference of opinions. As for Backstrapp-whoever....I am not him. There are many of you reading this board who know me...big ups to my fellow red diamond brothers...especially those in ACR, who are being entertained right now by reading this. The fact is, I was being paid the whole time I was on here playing and it made the day fly by. I know...sucks to be me...get paid to have fun with you fine folks all day long. Now that I am off of company time, I really should move on to more productive things....like getting ready to head into the woods tomorrow. I hope that you all have a good weekend...even the ones I have disagreed with.

Thanks for the info. on the deer cory vial. I am sure my friend appreciates it. I am sure he is reading all of this and laughing at the drama it has caused.

Game over Bull_Tongue...you win. Dammit, thats the second argument I have lost on here today. You guys are just too good for me. I'll keep trying and getting better. BTW, 72 is not the year of my birth...its the green score of the last buck I killed....just kidding.....lighten up!!

A comment titled: Looks like we have another mental giant in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

Is BullTongue another alias for Bayou-Bengal? Lets set the record straight. We are losing sight of the fact this deer was not killed in a pen or inside a high fence. he was shot in the nastiest of Vacherie swamp where people go not days, week or months without seeing a single deer...but entire seasons without seeing one. Some people hunt in our area their whole lives without killing a troph half the size of this animal. "Trophy" is a subjective term. it means different things to different people. Most of us agree that this is a "Trophy". That monkey crap about only deer qualifying for the B&C book just doesn't wash. If that were the case, not many taxidermist in our area could stay in business. The hunter who shot this isn't on here saying anything because he didnt ask for all of this. He simply did what we all do every day of the hunting season. He went into the swamp and took part in an activity he loves. The only difference being that on this day, he harvested the buck of a lifetime. I simply couldnt sit back and watch some people on this board rip him for doing exactly what they would have done in the same situation.

As for Bull-Tongues amatuer psychological evaluation about respecting other peoples opinions and not worrying about things I have no control over.....I made no post specifically to you. It seems you jumped into the conversation and interjected your own opinion...and then chastised me for having mine. Maybe you should take your own advice. On the other issue of people ripping me up next time I post....in case you haven't noticed, the overwhelming majority agree with me. If you think I am alone on this board in what I believe...check under your pillow tonight....the tooth fairy may leave a little something for you. Better yet, Leave out some milk and cookies for Santa...because you will believe anything.

A comment titled: 'nuff said in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

I think the recent posts pretty much settle it....the "Trophy" votes are winning in overwhelming fashion. That's the only point I wanted to make from the beginning. I wanted credit to be served where it was due...to a good, ethical hunter who harvested a true trophy animal. All the talk of returning it and it being tame really got under my skin. I know that any of us would be proud to take a deer like that and would not do what those posts suggested if faced with the same situation. When you go out into the woods searching for a trophy deer...and one appears before your eyes....you shoot it...period. If you sit there and analyze the situation, thinking about whether the deer came from a ranch....you wont kill many deer. For God's sake, it was killed in Vacherie! Who expects a monster like that to walk out on you there. I would surely not be wondering about his up bringing before I decided to make the shot. He could have followed me to the stand like the doe in the earlier post...either way, he would still be dead. As far as records...who cares! I don't hunt for the record books...I hunt because I enjoy the thrill of it. I am sure most of you feel the same. If it qualifies, so be it. If not...it is still one big, bad a_ _ man of a deer.

Just in case you were wondering...the deer will be a great conversation piece in his living room...tag in the ear and all.

A comment titled: Don't I wish. in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

Bengal..you are just too smart for me. You saw right through me. I am the one who killed the deer....NOT! I only wish that were the case. I would have been proud to admit it right off the bat. As for you...I give up...you win. That comment about me going spank my "ole lady" instead of my dog really cut me to the bone and sent me running away in shame. It seems i am fighting a losing battle of wits with a MENTAL GIANT...LOL. Seriously, no hard feelings. Opinions are like a_ _ holes...everyone has one....and I respect yours.

P.S. HUKED ON FONIKS REELY WURKED FUR ME. Might be a wise investment for you there, buddy. Peace out!

A comment titled: Cry me a river... in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

Hmmmm...so you wouldnt call that a trophy? I am afraid I will be forced to call you a LIAR Mr. Bengal. I would even venture to wager that YOU have deer much smaller than that one on your wall that were "trophies" to you after you shot them. That is, unless you really arent a hunter and your sole purpose here is to cause trouble. If that's the case...mission accomplished. Lets take a poll of the readers/posters of this forum....Trophy or No Trophy? As far as taking the post down....$7000.00 deer...knocking on someones door...blah, blah, blah. I think you hear me knocking...and I think I'm coming in....and I'm bringing that big A_ _ TROPHY deer and all the true hunters on this board with me.

A comment titled: KNOCK , KNOCK in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

I know the flurry of posts may be hard to keep up with so I will say this very S-L-O-W-L-Y so you can follow, Bayou_Bengal. If you read back a few posts, I think Capt Ross pretty much cleared up the issue of liability according to the law. There will be no legal ramifications. You say I am defending my buddy who shot the deer...and I am. Your posts almost make me believe you would like what happened to be illegal or something. You disguise it as some morality issue (oh, the poor deer farmer lost his deer) when in fact, its a clear case of JEALOUSY rearing its ugly head. If you are a true hunter and sportsman, be happy for the guy for taking the buck of a lifetime. It seems all the other REAL hunters and sportsmen in here would have done the same thing and are happy for him. Come on in, dude....the weather's fine.

P.S. Why are you yelling at us all the time? Have your adult supervision show you where the cap lock button is on your keyboard.

A comment titled: Couldn't have said it better in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

Capt. Robert hit the nail on the head. I know I personally would have wet myself if this deer walked out on me. I would have had no choice but to sit there gripped with fear and awe as he WALKED away from me. I think having the presence of mind to even pull the trigger on that thing should be commended. Anyone who could see that deer and not get shaken up needs a new hobby for their adrenaline rush. Deer like that one are the reason we all wake up early and venture into the woods. Hell, if he did escape from some pen...I hope he had an accomplice...and that his accomplice is still out there somewhere.

A comment titled: Couldn't let go in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

It seems driftwood is hitting the sauce a little early in the day on a rainy Thursday. I read back through all the previous posts and couldnt find anywhere that one of us refered to high fence hunting as "unsportsman like" or "crap". Maybe I just missed it. Someone enlighten me if I did. The fact that the deer may have once lived in a pen in no way makes it "tame". It is still a wild animal....just as wild as any deer on Blackhawk or anywhere else. If you put a grizzly bear in a pen and raise it, does it make him less of a grizzly bear? Does the fact that he once lived in a pen make him you view him as a cute, cuddly rabbit if he suddenly escaped? Of course not! If he wandered onto your property, you would treat him as a grizzly bear...regardless of where he once lived. This deer was indeed a WILD animal...one that wandered into the wrong neck of the woods and got whacked...PERIOD!

A comment titled: Lost and Found in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

The hunter who shot the deer is a friend of mine. He purposely left the tag in the animal's ear for the photo. He contacted Wildlife and Fisheries after killing the deer and has inquired to several people as to the origin of the tag. He attempted everything short of calling the police and checking the "missing deer" reports. He is curious just like the rest of us to see where this monster actually came from. I think we all can agree on one thing...he is lucky to have killed such a monster and we all would have done the same thing if he had walked out on us. That's about all I have to say on the issue. I am going out this weekend looking to kill "53". I will post the pics on Monday...I wish!

A comment titled: Respect in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

I completelty agree with lil hank about removing the tag after the shot and before the picture...LOL. I respect Breamkillers position on finding the owner and making the situation right through compensation or whatever. I don't personally think it's necessary. Like i stated before, this was a wild animal that was in the wild when it was killed. It doesnt matter if he used to live in a pen or was purchased by someone for monetary gain. The bottom line is that he is not a domestic animal....not livestock....and had been on the loose for over 2 months. He was harvested legally...during open season...on private property. The only point I wanted to get across is that this is a good hunter who harvested an excellent trophy. His feat should not be made light of. Any one of us would have been proud to drag that animal out of the swamp and would gladly switch places with him to harvest such a deer. Lets all just be happy for him. Peace!

A comment titled: Blow Up in response to a report titled: Lost and Found

That wasn't a blow up...it was an opinion. Let's just ask the other posters and readers what they would have done. It seems the consensus opinion from the other posts in this thread is to congatulate the hunter on harvesting a nice buck. Lets not discount the fact that this deer was indeed in the wild...in the Louisiana swamp...not taken on some high fenced ranch style pay hunt. The hunter was no different from you or I. He still had to be in the right place at the right time..and make the shot. Would any of us have let this animal walk?? I doubt it!
