Wow nice buck, congrats. Looks like he has some good mass on his antlers.
The wife said I'm not getting the whole head mounted but I am getting the antlers mounted on a plaque they said it will be done in 1 to 2 weeks. She said it would scare the crap out of her at night. Oh well wasn't worth fighting over I guess. We have one more kid to get in college so I can have my man room.very nice. i take it the bucks getting mounted right?
The doe was from a treestand. My buddies at work finally talked me into a climber treestand. I got a cheap Ameristep Grizzly for $50 bucks at my local outdoor store. It's a little heavy but something to start with. I got the buck on a deer drive. The buck and a doe came running down off of the hill full speed and since I had all ready gotten a doe earlier I just put the crosshairs on the buck. I missed the first shot and the second shot was a side shot from behind. I saw the buck drop 150 yards away and the doe hopped the fence and kept going. When we got to the buck I was surprised he dropped so soon because it looked like a gut shot but when I was field dressing it one of the other guys pointed out the hole in his heart. I guess the slug when in through his stomach and hit his heart. I'm not a fan of deer drives but I guess I can't complain now.Well that is a good day. Congrat's.
Details of the hunt, please.
