Had a hard time getting on this old wary buck. He finally took a wrong step. Not the biggest horns in the world but man he was like a ghost. Ended up shooting him at 10 yards and when he took that wrong step he knew it.

He definitely looks like an old timer!!! Good going, but if he was that close why didn't you just hit him over the head with your gun, LOL?!!!

Yes, his neck was huge. I'm definitely not complaining. I'm perfectly happy with him just the way he is, his horns just aren't a very accurate representation of the class of animal he really was though.

Yeah, we are bouncing back from a couple pretty significant ehd years.

We still have them but we lost a ton of these old bruisers.

Thanks for the congrats guys.
