Thanks everyone I think I'm still on cloud 9  :IBCOOL: For a couple of reasons of coarse, one that my daughter was there to share in my joy and two that JJ wasnt there!   ;)  I guess I could have named it the Dream hunt but honestly that buck made my season regardless of anything else I did last year!

That's such a great story and an amazing animal. Hat's off to you and your expert spotter.  :tup:
