Excellent job guys.. Not every day hunting will be remembered but I guarantee you will share that memory the rest of your lives. :D

You are the kind of people I would hunt with.

I also give you guys a ton of credit! I could see guys saying ahh, he was small, we can get another but you guys put the effort in to find a boat and go after him!

Nice work!

The number one reason I always bring waders!

I did that exact same thing last year north of Devils Lake. instead of ice it was an open slough with a small island on it. The buck must have been trying to out smart most hunters, I ended up seeing it out there and took one shot at 420yds. We had to find a canoe to retrieve the darn thing. It ended up being a nice heavy 4x5. It was worth it.

I just wish I had some pictures of it. that is pretty priceless.

And we wonder why we cant grow a lot of big bucks in ND. There are no managment practices. It makes me sick to see people shoot little bucks like this. Sorry just my 2 cents!
I think you should change your name to "The Judge". Having grown up in the RRV, if you can't seem to find quality deer in ND it may be more of an issue of your skill as a hunter than the quality of the herd. Sorry just my 2 cents! (Actually, I am not sorry, just mocking you...)

MNGOOSER, props for the effort to retrieve the animal.

you no if you keep putting you 2 cents in maybe one day you will have something :withstupid: we hunted with 5 young men ages 14- 17 we let them shoot what they want if you look at another post on here you would see we shoot big bucks also just have to give the younger ones a chance to get something to keep them interested in hunting

Great ingenuity on that recovery. Having nearly gotten killed going through the ice once, as far as I'm concerned it would have been valid to consider the danger too great to try to get him...
