A Very Proud Son

In November my mom ended up taking a nice buck. It was a great hunt; words can't describe how proud I am of my mom for pushing through and harvesting a nice Coues buck. My mom had basically broken her left knee on an elk hunt a long time ago. She went to the hospital and they could not do the surgery right away so she had to walk around with it until the surgery took place, in that time all her cartilage in her left knee wore down. This also wore down her right knee in time because of always having to shift weight to that knee. Finally she went in for surgery; she was getting a total knee replacement. Unfortunately the surgery was unsuccessful and put her in more pain then before. Since then there has been other surgeries to try and aid her knees but nothing has been substantially helpful. Last year, despite the immense pain she took a tall Coues as you can see in the video below:

This year she said she wanted to shoot something bigger than her previous buck so we found a good one and got her right in on him, thankfully it was in easy walking country that had an old closed two track road that she could walk down. She put the hammer down on him and he was just what she wanted; bigger than her buck from last year. Anyways, enough of the story, here's the video!

I hoped you all enjoyed the hunt as much as I did, this is why we film -- so we can share our hunts with the rest of the hunting community. Thank you all for watching.

Very nice! I like the pic as well. Funny story- when I was about 10 we took a vacation to colorado and my mom just HAD to have a cactus from there. We stopped on the side of the road and she got one small cactus. Well, she got home and planted it, and over the next 5-10 years that thing grew bigger and larger than the one behind you in your pic! that was a long-running family joke. Made me laugh! Nice buck though!

Another echo on a great story and greater ending. Congrats to mom on her perseverance with both her knees and in getting her deer.
