Great buck, great story. Dream hunt indeed!

Thanks, I almost called the thread dream "hunt" but this hunt made the season special but I just added it to the title.  :tup:

Congrats again, Mark. That's an awesome buck. The difference between the 150 buck and that one is amazing. Congrats. Really glad you got to share it with your daughter. That's pretty special.

" 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

Oh boy I knew that question would come up I'm just surprised it took so long. I took it to a BC scorer,  It gets hammered on deductions for typical so non typ is the higher score .

- greatest spread  29 0/8
- inside spread  24 1/8
- gross non typical  199 7/8
- official  195 0/8 Net.

Too bad he broke his flyer on his left or he would have grossed over 200 easy.
