It takes hard work to stay after it for 17 days.  Dealing with the emotional ups and downs.  Persistence and emotional resilience paid off.  Great buck!

As others have said; 17 days in a row...is a CRAZY long time to stay focused!  You must've  passed up a lot of decent bucks to wait for that one.  Great job staying with it!

What a gorgeous buck, well worth waiting 17 days for and who knows how many years before you drew the tag.

Damn, good for you.  I think I might have the stones to pass on the first buck, but I never would have made it past the one in the snow.  My hunt would have been over...
