Default First bow buck!! after 3 years of passing small ones

i shot him on the morning of the 15th. 1 year to the date of losing a big one last year. The morning started great. I had a decent buck walk under me in the dark waiting for it to get light. then i had a small 4 pointer hang around for about 20 minutes then he left and i grunted and he came back in. After he left i Grunted some more and this on came walking calmly in at about 715. he came out at 20 yards and i gave him the rage treatment and 25 yards later i watched him pile up and texted all my buddies that i needed help. i didnt go look at him until they got there and there was quite a bit of ground growage on this guy. i will be putting the tape to him soon for the scorecard but my taxidermist called and said he scored him at 167 1/8. 15 points. hes a main frame ten with split brows and one extra on one of them. plus he has a kicker on each of his G2's

Nice buck. Great to see another LaSalle County giant. But there aren't anymore and won't be anymore so nobody else needs to bother trying to hunt there.
