Played hooky from work this afternoon, went hunting and ended my deer season. Headed out around noon and set up about 1:00 pm. Conditions were cold (4F) with a steady NW wind at about 20 mph. I have to be honest - at 50 years old I can see the end of hunting solo in conditions like this in the not too distant future. Cold never used to bother me but 3-4 hours in the open on a day like today is my limit.

I am not usually a fan of selfies but at some point I decided to take pic of my shooting lane and the camera happened to be in selfie mode and when I saw how crazy I looked I just couldn't resist:



This is the pic I was trying to take:



You can just see the limb of my Excalibur Micro 335.

At 3pm this guy came strolling by:

He field dressed 209 lbs for an estimated live weight of 265 lbs. I can attest to the weight as I forgot my bloody toboggan and the 1 mile drag back to my truck was something of a chore.

Big bodied deer, glad you had the snow to help it slide. A mile is a long drag.

Great story and a beautiful buck. I think a lot of us start thinking about what we won't be able to do (or at least shouldn't do) alone much longer in about the 5th decade.

That drag will keep you young though! Congratulations.

Nice buck. I would have had to rest every 30 yds dragging that animal.

Congratulations! Nice buck. At 50 you are still "young" with more wisdom. In 2017 50 is the new 40, 60 is the new 50 ect.
