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.

great deer was wondering where you've been

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

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.
