"Big Bucks ?"

So every year I look forward to reading posts and looking at pics of big bucks comming out of Old Mexico. So this year it's been pretty quiet. Was the hunting bad, did the bandio's or drug guys kill all the hunters? Been a lot of negative stuff on Sonora Outfitters over the past year. So what's up bad hunting year or something else.....

Hoping to hear from Appleman....he always seems to be up to speed on what's going on in Old Mex.

I have also noticed the in activity on this forum. Maybe Mex got to scary? I found it very slow and tough hunting this year but was fortunate to make a fast shot on this 206 gross typical that grew well from the good rain but never saw anything bigger. would love to hear from other hunters.

264 MAG--that is the story I hear from a lot of hunters and it was kinda like that in our camp though once in a while a buck would pop out. One friend who hunts there lots and usually sees a hundred deer only saw very few????

One never knows when you're shooting a real, wild, non pen raised buck down there any more, huh Aman? There's a trend down there for some outfitters to raise 'em up, then release them for a real hunter to shoot. Pretty sad deal IMO>

Fortis---I agree with you but my complaint with you is that you told me about all ur friends that told u for sure that buck had pics in a high fence feeder and u are just plain old absolutely wrong and so was ur information. Mexico is getting to be a mess that way with fences including some of Lemons bucks but please don't put my bucks in that same category as those darted high fencers! And as always --no--the buck I just shot was roaming free on 525 square miles of free range tough hunting desert. You once shot a nice buck down there and know the desert I do agree the fencing is getting out of control---if I ever go fencing I will let u know

No need to embarrass you publicly by posting the pics of that buck eating out of, and standing by the protein feeder about a month before you showed up. Pictures exist and you know it. Just call it what it is. It's also easy to verify by asking the Muley Crazy guys that originally posted your story.

Damn buddy--of course I saw pics of that buck eating as I previously told you! You being so positive of a high fence and u being wrong is what should embarrass you! Don't ask Ryan--ask me! hell-I sent him the pics- u have got a problem with gossip among who ever ur friends are--- deer eat and drink--that is natural--high fences are not--- I hunt for my enjoyment---not yours!

Wondering if you have any pics of that buck eating out of a protein feeder? I've seen lots of pics of that big buck you shot a couple of years ago eating out of one. I guess Muley Crazy has seen them too?

It's perfectly legal, so I have no problem with that. Just call it what it is. Remember Wade Lemon hunting (not sure if that's who you hunted with) got caught advertising "hunting" for a huge buck that was protein fed for a year or two, then out to pasture to shoot. They knew the score befoe they shot it. Very misleading to say the least.

Maybe we can talk bad about ALL the bucks shot and EVERYONE will stop posting their photos and telling their stories. Just saying.

That comment wasn't directed at you appleman and yes I have hunted Mexico, that's a super nice buck you got and beats my 31 1/2 buck I got last year.I think their is still some potential for free range bucks if they are managed.

264---yes ---now I remember that you have hunted Mex-Im sure you realize that it is one of the finest places to hunt big muleys with a renewable tag and yes that Mex is changing and does have a lot of Texas style hunting. But not all of it. You hit it on the head--the deer need manaqing. Sometimes on freerange that includes adding water and even in some instances supplemental feed--- just like most all of the good areas in the US! The best to you and your hunting. Hope you beat that 31.5 you got sometime if you want to.

Sorry, but if you're feeding the deer and shooting them next to man made watering holes, that is not hunting. Your shooting. And most of the good places in the US have neither of those factors.

I see the help man gives deer a little differently. Most of the good units in the West certainly have many man made tanks and a lot of time and money goes in to water and guzzlers. The strip wouldn't be the Strip with out water holes and chainings to improve feed as well as the Nevada units with many chainings for feed and establishing water sites. Look at the Paunsagaunt especially up top where most of the deer have eatin in man made fields of food and in recent years a multitude of protein feeders. Not saying it is right or wrong---that's just the way it is--- most hunters don't consider this just shooting!

So shooting deer over water Guzzlers isn't hunting.
So shooting them coming out of the fields has to be bad too.
So shooting them before you climb the hills is bad too.
Should we holler HEY DEER before we shoot.
Dogs chasing swamp deer out swamps has to be bad too.

Sorry to say I know alot of hunters that hunt just like that, Just saying we all don't hunt the same ways, BUT it don't make their ways wrong and yours right.
