Default Pretty good buck down this evening.

I'll have some better pictures in the morning but here he is. Not much story, hit an old trusty stand for the first time this year for a cold front. He stepped out 35 yards broadside and I put an arrow right through the middle of his heart. He ran a good 200 yards though before he piled up. Getting mature buck on a 4 wheeler is not getting easier. I think they weigh more as I get older. . Kind of cool I killed him a week after my daughter got her first deer almost to the minute(Edit: well damn I just remembered hers was actually last Monday not last Sunday).

Amazing buck, with a bow no less!!! And at least you have a 4 wheeler, I'm using a hand truck with giant wheels to get them back, or a sled. thumbs up!

Good buck, I would gladly take that 4-wheeler though over my drag rope.

I hear ya, Ive been hunting this stand and I was just saying I used to carry deer like this out on my shoulders and now I can barley get one loaded on a 4 wheeler. I had a spine fusion years ago and its really catching up with me.
