Good luck Pat. Hope you stick a big one!

Good luck Pat and I look forward to your updates as your hunt unfolds!

"Most guys saw some good deer so I was just unlucky today."

I guess everything is relative. Most guys are in the office and you are in Canada hunting deer. I think you are not the unlucky one.

From: Sage Buffalo
19-Oct-16
Full moon should be waning which will help. Hope you shoot a big one!

Good luck!

I have heard alot of good stuff about this Rob Nye guy!

From: APauls

When are you going to toughen up and come up for a Canadian rut hunt and really experience what Saskatchewan has to offer? I know you always have the Kansas hunt, but you need to experience the rut in Saskatchewan! Mid-October isn't the "dynamite" whitetail time and yet you see what Sask has to offer at that time of year :)

From: GhostBird
19-Oct-16
When is the "dynamite" rut up there?

From: Rut Nut
19-Oct-16
Bou'bound- my thoughts exactly! I am sitting here sweating in my office and it is 80+ degrees(84+ outside! ;-)

From: Horseshoe
19-Oct-16
What Bou' said (as I sit here in my office). By the way Pat, it's 78 degrees and sunny in Hartford today. Good luck in Saskatchewan.

19-Oct-16
Pat, do you have cell reception from the stand?

What's the temp/wind like?

19-Oct-16
Bou nailed it. I'm jealous.

Good luck to you. Enjoy every minute.

From: Will
19-Oct-16
Good luck Pat! Hope today is the day!

From: APauls

Ghost - was more referring to Pat hunting the "lull." Same as most places, November is awesome, and I always find a lot of the biggest bruisers make themselves visible at the tail end of November. The search is hot for the last does trickling out, and a few fawns are starting to get into estrous.

Hunting with a local in Saskatchewan a few years ago, he always said about the 25th of Nov is when it really got good. Keep in mind they mostly "cruise with rifles." But the guy had heaps of 160-180" whitetail racks bouncing around in his workshop that weren't nice enough to have inside his house. He was just a super humble modest type farmer guy. Had a couple 200"+ bucks. Unreal how much bone was in his workshop. My buddies and I were all googoo gaga over his "rejects" lol.

With all the fury over the new website I can't believe Pat could take off and go hunting! Ha Ha , seriously go kill a giant Pat you have earned it!

From: Buckndoe

Your missing great deer weather here in ct. Record temps in 80's. Hotter than opening day I think.

From: Ambush
19-Oct-16
I wonder if Pat has heard, or maybe even seen, the obligatory "live hunt squirrel" yet?!?

Eventually something will come in for you that you want. Hang in there everyone is pulling for you.

From: APauls
20-Oct-16
I'm impressed that the snow has stuck around!! Temps must be close to freezing most of the time. What's the weather like Pat?

From: Amoebus
20-Oct-16
"With all the fury over the new website I can't believe Pat could take off and go hunting!"

When the going gets tough (politics/bowsite), the tough go to Canada.

From: Sage Buffalo
20-Oct-16
Pat the bucks that were shot - do you think they are representative of the area or are guys not seeing as many and resetting expectations? Not a knock on the area but I have been to great places where we just were the "tough" week so good animals were taken but not the typical giants.

Just curious.

20-Oct-16
Wow some great bucks killed already. Nice 9 point for Greg! Congrats!

From: nijimasu
20-Oct-16
Maybe "going home empty" is an option for you, but have some mercy on us poor working stiffs that aren't getting much time to hunt this year. I appreciate you taking the time to include plenty of cool reports and pics, but I really do need to see you kill something, and we obviously need as many bloodtrail challenges as possible. Pretty please?

From: Bigfoot
20-Oct-16
As a Canadian resident, but from a different province, we used to be able to buy a non-resident tag for whitetails in Saskatchewan. Myself and a friend hunted, quite a number of years, within an hour or so of where Pat is right now. Knew some people up there and we had a great time. We went in October, so we could extend our whitetail season and still hunt the rut in our home province. October was tough. We took some nice deer, so no complaints, but the giants just weren't very active. We found the bucks had tiny home ranges at that time and unless you found those spots, finding them moving to the fields was a long shot. The farmers would tell of us the big bucks they saw in the summer and September, but they disappeared in October - not from hunting pressure neither. There was no one else there bowhunting deer. But, it is a beautiful time of year and we enjoyed the heck out of it. Since Saskatchewan has put Canadian residents on a draw, we have applied every year. Haven't been drawn yet, so it has been a number of years since we have been there. Really miss those October hunts.

From: Medicinemann

That ten point sure looks like a big bodied deer....3.5 year old?

21-Oct-16
I was thinking the same thing Jake, but I think it's the butt-first camera angle that's making him look bigger in relation to his rack. And they do grow them pretty big up there... My first thought was that he was older, but the more I looked at him, I think Pat is right and he's 3.

From: Medicinemann
21-Oct-16
I am not that accurate when estimating deer ages...but usually within a year or two....and really wasn't questioning Pat's age estimate. I was just impressed with that deer's size.....and his belly sag...camera angle definitely needs to be considered for sure.

From: Pat Lefemine
21-Oct-16
A 3.5 was killed this week that was over 300lbs. The racks are deceiving when the deer are that big. It's possible that 10 is 4.5 but if you see him on video he acts subordinate so I'm thinking 3.5.

From: GhostBird
21-Oct-16
Keep at it Pat. Good luck.

21-Oct-16
I read Killing the Rising Sun in 9 hours but that was hanging around the house waiting to go deer hunting. Everyone should read this book! Passing the deer you have already will eventually be rewarded. Each buck passed just brings you one buck closer. But you know that:) Good luck! C

From: Jack Harris
21-Oct-16
That 10pt would get my blood flowing in NJ - perhaps not up there... The reality is, you can't shoot a bigger buck if you tagged that one. One of the benefits of potentially eating a tag, is you get to hunt more, so its all good.

21-Oct-16
wow- would have been very hard for me to pass up that 10pt-

From: Will
21-Oct-16
It is funny, Pat, how pretty much every buck you passed would be a beast in CT... Location = reality...

From: Grunter
21-Oct-16
Good luck Pat! Those deer have some big bodies up there. Now just need the rack to match up. Gotta be exciting to be able to see all the action. Definitely makes time go by faster

From: Pat Lefemine
21-Oct-16
No kidding! If you think this is bad wait till you see the buck my buddy passed in Kansas- a solid mid 170's 10 at 15 yards. Personally I thought he was nuts but it's all relative to the potential of a given area. Plus, I'm getting way more selective as I get older. My killer instinct is not as strong as it was 10 years ago.

From: Heritage
21-Oct-16
I appreciate being able to view the feature on my phone. I'd like to see video of kill please. :)

From: Pat Lefemine
21-Oct-16
Me too!

From: deerman406
21-Oct-16
That chocolate horned 8pt. is gonna be something in two years. Maybe next year!! I agree even up there that 10pt. may be in trouble if I was behind the bow. Nice photos! Shawn

From: Bou'bound

It will happen it is just a matter of time.

From: Pat Lefemine

Coyote just came by. Illegal for me to shoot it. Big fat one too!!! Torture.

From: Medicinemann
21-Oct-16
Pat, I saw the video that you were referring to....what a frigging animal.....I can't believe that he passed. You are right, it is a solid 170 buck!!

From: Chief 419
21-Oct-16
It's illegal to shoot a coyote? It should be illegal to pass a shot on a coyote.

From: EJG
22-Oct-16
I can't wait to see you get that new buck you posted a pic of.

So nice to be able to view the feature on my phone

From: Bou'bound
22-Oct-16
it's just a matter of time.............the issue may be the time it is a matter of may be in November and you are in October.

From: T Mac
22-Oct-16
Pat I hope that beast shows up! Good Luck!

From: Zbone
22-Oct-16
"getting way more selective as I get older. My killer instinct is not as strong as it was 10 years ago."... Boy, ain't that the truth with me too... Curious as to how old you are Pat, I'll turn 57 in a couple weeks...

From: kota-man

I might try to stay an extra day or two for that one...

From: Paul@thefort

From: midwest
22-Oct-16
Definitely a shooter! Very cool buck....hope you get a crack at him!

From: lewis
22-Oct-16
Holy shit that pretty much sums it up good luck Lewis

From: Pat Lefemine
22-Oct-16
I'm not 100% but a big, dark horned buck just came by 20 mins ago. Definitely a shooter. Made at least 4 scrapes in the jungle to my right. Only caught a glimpse but I think it was him. Saw tines everywhere. Never came to bait and never left the thickets. Walked off to the NW. Had a bunch of does here and was shocked he never came in. Got lots of time so if he gets hungry he's gonna be in trouble.

22-Oct-16
Pat, He is coming! Hang in there and I hope he is hungry and comes before dark.

22-Oct-16
Close to 200 inches! Don't get the fawn shake:)

My guess is he shot the buck just before dark, thinks it was a good hit, but didn't want to press the buck, so let it be until this morning. Then I'd guess they'll find it without much trouble but the 'yotes will have found it first.

That's exactly what happened to me when I hunted with Pat in Kansas a number of years ago. We went back the next morning and found him immediately, not 75 yards from where I was when I decided to let him be overnight. The 'yotes had destroyed everything from the front shoulders on back, but luckily the cape was untouched.

From: Medicinemann
23-Oct-16
If Pat was successful, he is trying to line up the movie rights before releasing any video or photos....He'll have Angelina-free Brad Pitt star as himself.....and Bullwinkle will star as the buck.....Hilliary will star as the spooky doe that tries to keep the buck away from Pat's stand.

From: bdfrd24v

well I sure hope it's good news and not some bad news on a tracking job. Long wait here for sure.

23-Oct-16
He is just messing with us to see how many hits the thread will get. Medicine man already told us we will like how it ends.

23-Oct-16
Pat mentioned he was going to read "Killing the Rising Sun" on this hunt so perhaps he's doing that first? Took me 9 hours to read. It's a really good history book. C

From: stealthycat

that's a 185" non-typical IMO ... maybe a few inches higher

From: Forest bows

The man is making sure all his ducks are in a row so one of you Sally's don't give him a hard time for shooting A buck that big! 218"

From: Medicinemann
23-Oct-16
If my memory serves correctly, he saw that big buck on the last day of his hunt. He has probably been traveling all day....returning home from Saskatchewan. Might take a day or two to get enough time to get in front of a computer and provide closure.

From: Bou'bound

The paparazzi has had the Hartford airport staked out since 3pm and no sightings have been reported. He may have stayed extra time to tie up loose ends. Like finding s taxidermist.

This is kind a like that dude that posted asking for advice on finding his elk that he didn't make a great hit on and then when everybody was sucked in, we never heard anything back ....... I thought medicineman gave it away, but im starting to wonder. I dont need the full story yet, but a quick yay or nay would be sweet....

From: Jack Harris
23-Oct-16
what a beautiful buck of a lifetime. Very happy for you Pat - congratulations. Great footage too... Looks like the slick trick did it's job! Those buck just look different up there with the chocolate horns and all the points and mass. How do you get "up" for some CT. bucks now?

23-Oct-16
Pat does things right all the time/every time so I figured he was preparing the story and video while flying home in order to be at work in the am at his real job! So well deserved and I know you appreciate the beast and all that bow hunting means to us! Enjoy! C

PS: I hope each and everyone of you someday have a dream hunt like this!

Pat, that is an incredible buck. To have the composure to get it on camera self-filming is beyond awesome. I've done a lot of self filming and to get it done on a buck like that is just amazing. Big congrats...... Way to stick it out till the end. Those who work the hardest usually get the luckiest! To post the trail cam pic and then kill him the next day reminds me of the Babe calling his shot. Way to go man....

are u getting it mounted?

From: Allheart
24-Oct-16
Almost seems easy. Get one pic of giant buck, decide you are going for him, next day pick a stand, see him in the morning, watch deer all day, in late afternoon he walks right under your stand then broadside at 12 yds. Only takes 35 years of hard work for that to all come together. I'm obviously talking tongue in cheek here. Congrats and that is just awesome that it happened.

24-Oct-16
Congrats, Pat! What a beast, and a great story to boot! Way to hang in there and stick it out!

LMAO, Jack! I think he is PROBABLY going to get it mounted! ;-)

From: Mad Trapper
24-Oct-16
Congrats FOG!!! Tell me the truth. Were you using any mustard for cover scent??? Between you and Blackatil Bob, I am thinking about selling all of my scent control gear and just getting a case of mustard. Looking forward to Kansas. I understand that you will be hunting out of the garage behind the house to give Jake and I a chance.

Wow, very awesome to say the least! I was super impressed you did such a fantastic job of filming - can you share the details of what camera and mounting system you used? A bit risky turning the camera on and arranging it for the shot esp. at that close range, but you did it all!

Congratulations also to Rob, plus everyone at Canadian Trophy Quest that have created such a fine operation. Lifetime memories for sure...

Pat, I'm also curious if you used a remote camera switch as the camera angle vs. arrow flight angle seems to suggest the camera was not from the same position. Very nicely done, regardless...!

I would not even ask what the score was if not for the fact the Bowsite itself is sending out emails advertising the deer and the score. This was received today:
