Dang!  Congrats on beating incredible odds to catch up with him.  Would he have survived the first shot?
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Looks like one of the old-school blacktails we used to see in the North Cascades!  What a doozy!  Congrats.  He's a trophy alright.   :tup:

Dang!  Congrats on beating incredible odds to catch up with him.  Would he have survived the first shot?

I got two in him intially, a neck shot which he would have recovered (went through rutted neck flesh) from and a broken leg as he was running off.  He would have survived until something picked him off most likely

Man, that is a hog! Love the scars.  Congrats.

Dang, I don't know if they're scars or fat rolls on his face.

Beautiful buck...thanks for sharing.

" 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
