Stunning buck, congratulations! Reminds me of one I shot a couple of years ago .......... in my dreams ......... wait, I can't even dream that big.

You have one good friend there for letting you shoot first after making all that racket and wanting to stay in bed! 

That thing is a beauty, congrats!  What were the measurements on him?

Well done!!!  That's a keeper there for sure!!!!!  I gotta point out though that he's only a buck of a lifetime if you quit trying for a better one :tup:

He is a excellent friend and fortunately for the both of us I was the only one holding a tag that day. He just wanted to be up in the mountains looking for deer. I have no idea how that would have worked out if we both had tags but as it turned out it was a great time for the both of us.

We hunt together quite a bit but only one of is hunting the other is just a ride along pack it out mule. The deer has a 27 inch frame and 36 inches tip to tip on the kickers.
