Dr_Pain Wow somehow I missed this, great job!
Thank you sir!!
Saturday opening morning gun season, I wanted to sit at a spot I never have before to see any activity. Our county was super slow with deer activity and hunters were sparse, well gun shots anyways. Maybe a two dozen shots then dead after 8am. Well about 1pm I got bored with no deer seen and got quite chilled so I headed over the hill to the wife in the blind and heater to finish the day out with her. About 3pm a nice big doe finally appeared out of the woods. Then a smaller doe and fawn followed. Wife says, another really big doe just came out as it had its head down, picked its head up and she said “oh my god it’s a big buck get your gun”!! I told her no you get your gun this one is yours as I have harvest all but one on the wall. The excitement when she shot and dropped it with her .243 Savage and Nosler 95gr accubond bullet was priceless. I have had this buck on camera a few times and seen him on the hoof while bow hunting once but didn’t get it done as this was my target buck if it stepped in front of me. I wasn’t too overly trying to harvest him as I wanted to see him next year but I’m glad we got him and she had the experience she did.
That’s an old boy. Very nice, congrats to your lady.
Those are some thick antlers.
twilliams that is awesome. What a great story behind that pic.
twilliams Very nice, a deer to be proud of.
twilliams very nice! And kudos on being such a gentleman.
twilliams nice buck! Always fun to get everyone involved.
twilliams It sounds like it was a team effort to me. Congratulation to you both.
That is a fine buck.
Way to get it done! I see some nice sausage in your future.
twilliams beautiful buck congrats to your wife . Love the story.
Congrats, great buck.
Very, Very nice. Congratulations to Mama. Great shot placement. I see much venison in your future!
That is a great buck congratulations
twilliams Are you going to shoulder or euro mount that white tail buck deer?
HerbcoFood shoulder mount, it will be her 2nd on the wall and biggest. Her other one is a nice 8 point as well just not as heavy as this one.
twilliams Every time you look at it will remind you of that day. Have one on the wall I shot over thirty years ago and still can remember exactly the situation that I got it in.
bocephus yep it’s not always the size of the animal it’s the memory made
twilliams That is for sure, I was with my nephew when he shot his first deer, a 4x4. I mounted the horns for him with a plaque with his name, the area and the date he shot it. I will always remember it when I see the horns and I am sure he will too.
twilliams Nice job! Also, I am going to use this post to try t figure out the image stretching issue we are having right now, tell your wife not to worry, we will have her back to normal in no time!
