World record bucks

On Grandview outdoors it shows the world record typical and non typical horned bucks with the heaviest weight buck, and the biggest overall buck. A typical buck is symmetrical on both sides and its horns are identical to either side. They also have the heaviest buck on the page which is the weight of the deer field dressed. The biggest typical deer was a Saskatchewan buck and was a very smart animal and took lots of skill to kill. The hunter missed on the first shot and drilled it on the second, lucky for him. The buck was a fourteen pointer that measured over 200 points, a point is one inch and was certified as a typical buck by Boone and Crockett. The buck before this one was the biggest one for over three centuries. The bucks in Canada aren’t generally big so it's rare to see a world record buck from there.
The biggest non typical buck is from St. Louis and scored over 300 points. David Beckham found it and it is a huge deer. The buck had 44 points on its horns but they were not symmetrical so the buck looks gnarly. “It is truly a one in a million animal, the biggest of the big” said Michael Helland. The deer was found in 1983 and has been the record holder since then.
The heaviest deer was shot on November in 1926 in Minnesota and it was a non typical buck. The buck was over 400 pounds field dressed and imagined to be over 500 pounds alive. There has not been a heavier deer ever recorded since then.
The biggest overall buck was from Monroe county with a score of over 300 points and it was a Boone and Crockett non typical deer. He was shot with a muzzle loader in 2003 and still remains the biggest overall buck. To get a buck of this size it must take lots of hard work and a very nerve racking moment. Seeing an animal this is big takes lots of dedication and be an amazing experience. It is so rare to see an animal like this because they are so big and smart that they know how to hide. These bucks are one of a kind and it will be a long time before bigger ones are shot.  This picture shows three of the four bucks that I talked about. All of these deer hunted from the ground and not out of a tree stand. I chose this because these bucks are huge and nothing like I've ever seen before in my life.

Hunting and fishing

I chose hunting and fishing as a blog subject because I like to do it and I've been doing it my whole life. Growing up in Humboldt county gives you the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. Being outside is relaxing and lots of fun, especially when its with your Friends. My dad taught me how to hunt and fish when I was little and I've been doing it since then. I like to hunt and fish because its outside and with your friends. There is so much to each activity that you're always busy and doing something.  

I enjoy hunting for black tail deer, green wing teal, mallard ducks, Aleutian geese, Canadian honkers,  wood ducks, merganser, wigeon, buffle head, blue bill, quail, grouse, and turkeys. I like to fish for trout, steel head, squaw fish, perch, lingcod, halibut, bass and catfish. I get all of my hunting and fishing gear from Cabelas . I bow hunt and rifle hunt and I use a shotgun for birds. I fly fish and use a spinning rod when I fish. I do a lot of my hunting and fishing public land but i will go to ranches and do it too. I go all around Northern California to hunt and fish and it is very fun. I like to hunt more than fish but fishing is awesome.

I hope after you read this blog you go out and enjoy the outdoors hunting and fishing and learn some new tips for the next time you go out.  I have became more and more attached to the sports over the years because of how much fun it is. I have improved in both and hope to have success this year. Being outside makes you calm and doing activities makes it fun. Getting outside will keep you in shape and you'll have a blast doing it.
