He logged on today at 3pm, my guess is because of the "@" mention that he received via email.  Hopefully he is working on the response but it is also possible that this hunt didn't end the way that they had hoped and it is salt in the wound to come on here and talk about it.

Hopefully we get the story but more importantly I hope they enjoyed they time in the woods even if a tag was not filled.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

i think with the way the weather was this year most peoples hunts didnt turn out the way they wanted but we make the best of what we are given. I would have loved things to be different on my hunt but in o way will i say im salty about the way things turned out. Hopefully we get an update good or bad.

Most hunters put way to much emphasis on the ## SCORE ## of an animal and get frustrated when they don't hit that score.  So if the weather does not cooperate and you kill a smaller buck that you hoped......you get salty, embarrassed, etc.  I get it, though I don't agree with it.  You get a quality hunt with little to no pressure.  Be proud of what you kill and bring it back to the forum members who helped you.  Even if you don't want to publish in the open forum you should address those who helped you via PM out of respect. 

I don't post many pics anymore due to the ## boys and I don't help many with advise because of the lack of follow up.  Sad but most on this (and other) sites are looking for handouts and have no plan to follow up.

WOW guys... really sorry I never got back to this post!!! Just realized today. I will work on the story ASAP! The short answer, she filled the tag on a worthy buck, happy with what we were able to come home with one! Below the high bar we had originally set for ourselves but regardless was an incredible buck and more so an incredible hunt. Ill get to the story... half a year later  :sry:

Hey man, she scored an awesome opportunity and tons of legal hunting time.  That alone is the victory.  A buck is icing on the cake.
