This was my second deer hunt and was a huge success. Not a trophy, but I will take it! One of it's antlers looks like it was broken off during a fight but and the other one had two points broken off. Tge one antler that was still there had a spread that was past the ear.

The mark you see in the photo is the drag mark not the shot mark. I shot this one in the front chest right in the heart. He made a mad dash for about 40 yards. Was not too bad tracking him. But because it was my first time blood trailing, I am happy with 40 mins haha. Now I am hooked!!!!!

Got set up on a spot where two dry creek beds funnle. Then called once ever 10 mins for about 30 mins, and in came a doe and her fawn. I kept my head down and did not make eye contact and the went on about ther way. When they left I did a trailing call of a buck chasing a doe.. and about 10 mins later in walked this guy!

Not to rain on your parade, but is this a legal AR buck? I thought we decided that broken off antlers and tines didn't make a deer count as unbranched.

Your case is even more interesting in that the one remaining antler goes outside the ears. That probably makes it legal, but I've never seen that discussion.

Anyway, I'm happy for you and I know how hard that 1.5 mile drag out is!

I thouthought the same thing when I made the decision to shoot, but with the spread outside the ear that should make it legal due to the other antler, if not broken, being outside the ear, which wouldwould easily make the 13" spread. If I am wrong, then let's get the discussion going...

Congratulations on your success. I assume by your last picture that it's home and in the cooler/freezer. That means "end of discussion"; ya done good.
