Default Oh Boy, It's about that time of year!

It's about time to start seeing those always elusive, harder to kill than bigfoot, bucks from the mountains!!

I can't wait to read the brag posts on how much different a species of deer that these bucks are and how they were killed 32 miles from the truck.

I'm sure some of those guys are pure killers, but I'd wager a lot of them come off private lands.

They have 4 hooves on each foot to traverse the continental divide north of Gainesville. I love it when they say that their 80 inch mountain buck is more special to them than if they would have killed a 160 in South ga

Yeah, nut you know the true mountain warrior bucks have tread built into their hooves so they can scale rocky cliffs and the occasional tree

80 inches of mountain antler is like two hits of Viagra and fifth of white liquor, it makes the hunter think he is 9 foot tall with a 14 inch prick and ready to rumble

I loved to deer hunt the mountains when I was younger. There were plenty of deer then. Now, forget about it. I'm too lazy plus you are lucky to see a deer.

I know what y'all are saying about the "great mtn hunters/deer", but some folks put in great effort to do what they do. I know folks that will hike in (2hr+) with a sleeping bag and hunt for 2 or 3 days. Why? I don't know. LOL.

But there is a lure or addiction to hunting the mtns, I guess you could say. Something about sitting on top and knowing there is nothing or no one within miles of you. I guess the extra work put in to find where to hunt and the amount of work to get a deer out gives them a great amount of pride in what is accomplished. Idk

I just like to make fun of the egos involved with mountain hunters and the fact some of them act like they could step on any club south of Atlanta and kill the biggest deer on the property because those deer are dumber and behind every tree.
