Default A good day hunting

Hunted on a private ranch yesterday. We were looking for elk, but started seeing lots of deer tracks in the snow. I had my friend set up where I thought the deer might come out of the spruces while I moved back a bit and started grunting and using a doe bleat. Within10 minutes, I saw a nice buck coming toward me from behind. I think he was trying to get down wind of me. Anyway, when he was about 50 yards out, I nailed him square in the chest with my 300 WSM. Now, back to the elk hunting.

Very nice deer man..

I would love to be in that situation.. "Well we was actually hunting for elk but seen some good deer sign so we set up and got this brute."

Thats awesome, congrats on the deer.

Wow, great buck! I guess that's one situation where you don't mind deviating from the plan.
