Way to go buddy!

I am heading out that way after Thanksgiving dinner to hunt through the weekend. Hope I see a monster like him.

Good Hunting,

Congrats. I hunted carroll also but only had a doe tag. Saw one nice buck but had to let it go. I'll be back next year. Good Luck.

MY DAD SAW HIM A FEW WEEKS AGO WHEN WE WERE CHECKING OUR TREE STANDS. EARLY FRIDAY HE WAS BY MY DAD BEFORE THE OPEN AND I COULD HEAR HIM SNORTING AT MY DAD. I SAW A FEW DOES EARLY AND THEN AT JUST PAST 7 HE WAS STANDING 60 YARDS FROM ME. I SHOOT TWICE AND THOUGHT I MISSEDBUT WHEN I CHECKED OUT WERE HE WAS STANDING THERE WAS BLOOD. HE RAN BACK UP THE HILL AND I WAS SURE MY DAD WOULD GET HIM BUT WHEN I MET MY DAD HE SAID HE DID NOT SEE THAT BUCK.
WE FOLLOWED THE BLOOD TRAIL AND LOST IT AFTER 300 YARDS. WE JUST KEPT LOOKING AND WE FOUND HIM A HOUR LATER UNDER A DOWNED TREE. I AM JUST LUCKY MY DAD HAS SUCH GOOD EYES.
I HIT HIM LOW AND THEIR WAS NOT ALOT OF BLOOD.
I AM 17 AND THIS IS MY 5TH BUCK AND THE LARGEST ONE I HAVE TAKEN.
I SAW ONE BIGGER THEN HIMFOR NEXT YEAR.

powers,

Congrats on a trophy buck. I've been bow & gun hunting 15 years and taken many mature whitetails, but have yet to score on anything up toeven 150". You should be very proud of him. 169" is slammer.

Nice deer!
I'll have to call my old college buddy who lives out that way.
