Killed this buck after what was a pretty slow deer season across the state for me.

cool nice buck.
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

2nd "Helped Another Hunter"....

I've been waiting for Dad to post, maybe he needs a push.   :chuckle:  Third year hunting and the young man made an excellent shot on this, his first deer.

Team warning shot 2017 Montana

Three studs from MT. are best year to date over there. Finally found some bucks with some mass!
Seen more bucks in one day then I see in this state all year.

That's great!  Hunting in the hardwoods of PA is about the only thing I miss from back East.  I got my first and quite a few more after that in up state PA.  My first was a one horned fork horn as well, although I was a bit older!

Did that buck already shed his other antler?

I don't think so...appeared broken, and looked like it was healed up. The antler he had was still firmly attached. I have seen bucks back there this time of year that had freshly dropped antlers. And, there is always stories of hunters that go to drag out their buck and the antler pops of...

filled my multi season tag early yesterday morning, made a bad shot and after a 3 hour blood trail we finally caught up to him and were able to finish him off, not how I envisioned my first archery deer, but was super happy when it was over
