Winners gonna win.
Congrats to all involved and nice shot.
42 yards on an animal of that magnitude is no chip shot.

WOW, I think I just spot welded my skivvies, Awesome Buck right there.  Thanks for the write up also, nice to know you have known of him for a few years.  That should mean his "seed" is all over that mountain.  Also of note, there are probably a whole slew of "good bucks" that will be very happy next year not having to square off against that MONSTER!!  Congrats again, that is truly a great buck!!!

I think he could have used one more year to really hit his full potential....  :chuckle:

What a masher of a buck, congrats.

Stud buck!  :tup: :tup: :tup: :tup:
Would love to see the shed from last year.  Always thought it would be cool to have a plaque with “hank” and trail cam pics of him on the hoof. Sheds of him as well tops it off.

Last photo of the buck with the red barn in the background has the shed antler laying on the deer's belly.  He really did blow up this year.
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.
