One of the best write ups I've read in a long time.  As you know this is my kind of hunt.  Well done!  An amazing animal.

Great buck, great write up. Thanks for sharing, JJ. Huge congratulations!

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Very impressive. Great story. Great hunt. The type of hunt most people can only dream about. That thing's a donkey of a mule. Great job!

Congrats on a nice deer,the one thing I like about your story is that you took the time to hunt the deer you wanted to get.That's what hunting is about , so much more rewarding after you get it done.Congrats again, :tup:

That's my kind of buck, nice and tall!   :tup:  Congrats again JJ I'm really happy for you! You know I wanted to be there but from the sounds of it I'd prob still be there curled up next to a rock like those on the Hillary step!  :chuckle:
I agree with bone this is an excellent write up, thanks for taking us on your journey and sharing  your experience. Your post is why I don't have magazine subscriptions anymore.

One question though? What do you do for an Encore'? ... 200" whitey???  :)

Although I threw out several invites to friends and family to accompany me on my quest, I had no takers on a backpack hunt that would take us up and over 13,000 feet. 

You didn't ask the right person.  ;)  I'm glad you didn't though... I think you will value this more as a solo trip. Congrats on a dandy brother. Can't wait to get a look at this one.
