Now back to Washington. I had a decent night sleep and found myself in my favorite deer hunting city by driving my buddy to pick up his car at les Schwab. Of course i had to give it one shot. I headed up the mountain with him and down a few canyons. We got to the bottom 4-5 miles later and i decide to call it a day. Only seeing 2 does. I was planning on hunting late season whitetail and called it early because we were quite a ways from the truck.. well on our return to the truck we came over a hillside that we havenít scanned yet and 75 yards downhill stands a decent 3 point. I quickly grab my rifle and send one down range dropping this buck. We were able to quarter it out and toss all of the quarters and meat into 2 game bags. Now i only brought a rifle down into this hike. (Extremely stupid) no pack no knives nothing else. My buddy had knives and game bags. We filled the game bags to the brim and headed back towards the truck.. i killed this buck around 5 pm i believe and did not get back to the truck till well past 11. It was miserable my advice ALWAYS BRING A MEAT PACKING PACK! I will never make the mistake again. THANK YOU GUYS FOR FOLLOWING ALONG! I have met and talked to some awesome people on this site. Iím not a site veteran but there is some great guys who i text and talk to often. Appreciate the feed back the tips and the advice that some have reached out and given me. Happy hunting and letís have a great rest of 2019!!

They offered me a full time management position and Iím debating it now.. i really do like the farm and everyone i was working with and do enjoy the work.. but potato season can go long and completely ruin a hunting season (which i am most passionate about)  the timing is the biggest downfall. Iím considering it but also looking at completing an EMT course to become a fire fighter
