He's pretty nice. A little narrow.
Don't forget your spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch.

Congrats and thanks so much for sharing the hunt with us!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

JJ,
For those of us who have been on this site for a little while, we have followed your quest for a monster muley for years.  I remember when you drew that Idaho tag and passed up some deer that I would have killed without hesitation.  This was more than an epic hunt in 2017, this is the culmination of years of planning, prep, and (perhaps most importantly) passing on bucks that most of us probably would have harvested.  I have seen pictures of some of the bucks that you have passed on, and when reading this story every time you said "a nice 4 point", I am thinking to myself "I probably would have shot that one".
Congratulations to you on fulfilling your quest.  Thanks for taking us along.  Perhaps the best thread this year.   :tup:

I'm glad you all enjoyed the write up.  I haven't posted a story for a few years, but usually post my success pics.   With all the recent effort spent on trying to get the site back on track, I thought that I would try to do my part and contribute to that cause.

I leave for Nevada two weeks from today and hope to have another successful adventure to share.

Great buck but that write up was awesome.  You should think about writing.  Your writing style reminds me of my dad.
