    Couldn't imagine getting only 1 tag.

    They were able to set the record with only 7 does, so it's doable either way. I was just bored and broke down the difference between the top 2 teams last year.

    Biggest and smallest

    Team 4- 241"

    59 6/8

    181 2/8

    Team 3- 239 3/8

    50(fergie buck)

    189 3/8

    To say i don't get envious when everyone talks about the extra doe tags and multiple buck tags they get would be a lie.

    I found two of my bucks...I will take either if I can get on them. The first is the 6yo I really want, need a better pic, but I think he's lost some size. The second one is 4 possibly 5, if given the chance, I would stick him.

    Is yours an either sex? Some places have a doe or buck only one tag season.

    Here, it's unlimited does with arechery and two buck limit regardless of weapon or combination thereof to attain 2.

    Nice! You moving more cams in or know the area well enough to stay out until you make your move on vacation?

    That second buck has characteristics similar to my '11 buck back on page 2. High and narrow with some good brows. Mass is a little hard to visualize in velvet and a bit of motion blurr doesn't help.

    Good luck with them!

    I'm going to do one more camera move, then I'm staying out.

    Also scored on an "85" California mongoose loop tail, with old school skyway's on it today...can't wait to start cleaning it up.

    You collecting or restoring and selling?

    Some of them older bikes are fetching pretty pennies these days.

    Seeing them mag wheels on both bikes, remember one company advertised you could put a bent one in the freezer and it would strighten out. Pretty sure they were plastic.

    Weird seeing a Mongoose with reflectors intact, usually those were the first thing to go.

    You keep them original or plan on putting the 3 piece crank on? Already has the cable through gooseneck and needs some front brake pads.

    I'm collecting...gonna leave this one all original. Not going to take much, just few parts and some cleaning up.

    Skyway's will straighten up in the freezer, that a good memory, lol.
