Good call !  Seems like first day bucks are commonly the biggest go figure.  Biggest buck I saw in the Entiat in 5 days was seen in the first 10 minutes !

Love his frame. Probably a good call.  He is on the better end of most of the Montana muleys I have seen taken

Picked a good one to break the rule!  :tup:

I have decided to never pass on a buck the first day if it is one I would take on the last... of course I say this after I passed on a nice buck the first 30 minutes I was out ;)

Nice buck and congrats!

Nice!  What day did you get it and was it acting like it was in the rut?

Got him on Saturday the 18th. All does had bucks and they were still rutting hard. Watched a few other bucks mount some does that morning and he was running one pretty hard when we spotted him!

Having only hunted in Washington the thought of even considering passing up such animal blows my mind.
