    Mad Skillz Bro!!!

    but seriously the plan is to paint the kayak in earth tone colors and stow/lock it down by the lake. I will hide it well, and use camo netting over it too.

    I'll bike down to the kayak with my camo painted bike with gear attached. I plan on welding (My nephew is a welder) a small platform on the back of the bike to hold my pack and bow, and wear my stand on my back. I will lock it with the kayak lock.

    The bike will also have some sort of arm welded to it to attach the game cart to.

    As far as getting the buck across the lake, I'm still working on that one, lol!!!

    Quartering it up and caping it is a strong possibility, just have to learn how to do it!!

    Im going to have the same problem this year. I am just going to strap some kind of flotation device on the deer and deal with it as I tow it from the kayak...haha

    If its cool weather and you don't need the cape, this works on deer too...

    Smaller, to save money I usually only shoot one arrow at each target dot when I’m practicing. Helps to avoid Robin Hooded arrows and make my targets last longer. I did shoot 2 at the top target since I had 6 arrows and only 5 dots so that’s the only real grouping and they’re probably 1 maybe 1.5 inches. The dots are the size of a Pringle’s can since that’s what I use as a stencil when I hit them with the spray paint.

    Very cool! I'm definitely going to want the cape. This buck(s) will be getting mounted for sure after all of the work. No fergies, forks, or basket racks, big boys only!

    This is definitely the best way to get animal out. I hate dragging deer and it is impossible with an elk. Except for a couple of spots where I take my boys and we are less than 1/4 mile from the jeep, or, it is a big buck that I will mount, I almost always quarter the animal. Unless it is gut shot or I am teaching my boys how to gut it out, I don't bother removing the organs other than the heart. By myself, I can skin and quarter a doe or a small buck just as fast as gutting and with way less mess.

    The only thing I do different from the video is that I take the cut along the spine all the way up the neck to the base of the skull to get all the neck meat. I also take the layer of brisket meat from the top of the ribs and cut the intact rib cage off if I remember to bring a small saw.

    Two other tips from Dirk Durham vid (below), I'm hoping to try in a couple weeks. Again, same would work for deer... He's just showing a later step before packing out:
    *Hang the quarter to debone
    *De bone part of the quarter right into the bag to keep the meat cleaner.

    Nothing big to report. One mature 8 point and some borderline younger deer (I’ve never shot a buck with my bow). My elbow flared up from something yesterday in my right arm. Feels like it’s on fire or someone is stabbing a knife in the top inside of my elbow. Been like that forever. Can’t throw anything, can’t pull anything, and can’t lift anything heavy without it searing with pain. Think I tore something in there at some point, just never got it looked at. Hope it’s better in a couple of days.

    I can think of a lot of reasons I dont go to a doctor, brother, but if i cant pull my bow back, I'm seeing what's up. Hopefully it's nothing serious.

    My dad had one back flip and drop in place on him several years ago on a rifle hunt. He blew apart the aorta. Apparently, jumping hard like that is is usually an indication that the heart was hit.

    The more I watch that clip the more I think that arrow hit a 2nd deer behind the intended target.

    I believe the back deer is facing the opposite direction in the clop and didn't get hit.
