Nice! We both filled our tags. Was a good time. Tried attaching pics but it won't let me.

Had this tag last year really enjoyed the hunt.  Cashed in 11 points on it and shot a dink of a buck on the last day.

We were in bucks every day. This guy wasn’t the biggest buck we load eyes on but we weren’t holding out for anything in particular and we had some trouble getting him on the gun quick enough several times prior. We found this guy on our first day but he chased a doe into private land so we just watched him chase his lady around for a while and left him be, two mornings later we found him again chasing a doe this time he was in a ffth area but we couldn’t get him to hold still long enough for a shot, on wensday we decided to look for him again and found him still with his doe but he stood still plenty long enough for my son to set up on him. All week long  my son was shaky and nervous but something clicked with this buck and as soon as we saw him my boy laid down behind his gun and found him in the scope. I ranged him, reached down and dialed his turret and that shot went off before I even got my binos back up! I couldn’t be more proud of that young man.
I don't always shoot big mule deer, but when I do, it's with a bow tech!

Awesome job!  :tup:   my son had the same tag.  Tough year.
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
