got this guy saturday morning just as it started to rain. Punched both lungs and he went about 45 yards and piled up.
he came in right at daylight and walked almost directly in the path I had walked 45 minutes earlier
this is my first trophy animal in a year and a half since I have been mostly hunting meat animals or helping with management efforts lately.
I have seen this deer and gotten game cam pics of him off and on for a couple of years.
he made a big jump two years ago at 4 and has stayed at basically the same level since.
tooth wear ages him at 6.5 yrs old and he weighed 145 lbs live weight.
Inside spread was just under 18"
very excited to get this buck as he is the best I have taken so far.
