Heard his 270WSM ring about 7:30 yesterday morning. Received a call moments later to hear him say he thumped a biggun, to which I confirmed with the tell tell kawhap of the fatal shot placement. He was having trouble getting on good blood, so I joined him for the trail. We found him within minutes, and the celebration was one of the greatest days of my life afield. He has worked tirelessly to get his kids and grand kids on deer. He earned every inch of this 142"!
