Was able to connect with the biggest buck of the year. He will have to tell the story of how he potlicked this buck and then rubbed it in the faces of all the other lease members who had been hunting daylight till dark for a week and a half and never did end up killing anything. grin

Pics do not do this deer justice, it is truly a once in a lifetime deer. The frame on this deer is absolutely incredible.

Congrats to BowsnRods on taking a fantastic animal





For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Yes its true, I was handed this double drop mulie. I had been tied up with work the first 10 days of season. I headed west with txtrophy85 for the last few days of season. txtrophy85 had already scored on a monster 5X5 mulie but as a true friend he made sure that I didnt bow out as hunting had been very tuff on the other hunters on our West Texas lease with only txtrophy85 scoring.We arrived at our lease just in time to hunt Monday evening, I was greated by another true friend Stxranchman who offered to drive me around in his hunting buggy. We spent several hours glassing flats and draws seeing a few mulies but nothing that would bring out the spotting scope. The sun was going down pretty quick on the western horizon when stxranchman pulled a rabbit from his hat. We were headed back to camp when we crossed into an open grass flat and stxranchman came to a quick stop and watched as 2 mulies were feeding with there heads down in the tall prairie grass. I got my binoculars up to see the back mulie pushing through the grass with his horns. I waited for stxranchman to give me his thoughts on the buck as he watched him through his spotting scope. He immediatly said good buck, we were over 450 yards away from the buck and needed to close the distance with only 15 minutes of shooting light. Stxranchman got me to within 230 yards and as I was settling the cross hairs on his shoulder stxranchman told me he has a droptine. I squeezed off a round and it seemed like it took forever to reach its mark, but it did and the mulie was down. I crossed the grass flat on foot as stxranchman went around to a fence gap in the buggy. I walked up to the monarch and as I lifted his head above the grass I observed double droptines. This was truly the best hunt I had ever been on and it would not have happened if it weren't for two of my best friends txtrophy85 and stxranchman. Thank you guys.
