So I decided to go into this season with a western hunt mindset, and it really payed off. Hopefully next time I'll have film to share as well. No cameras. The canoe lets me get into some thick stuff, I also guided my buddy's first hunt and he got a buck as well! Scouted, guided, tracked and filmed. Very cool. Been a great season, I've got one more tag and there's a monster I've seen once in there. Hopefully I can get him on film for everyone. Thank you!

    Just awesome. Looks like you've found a cheaper alternative to that western hunt as planned. Very impressive! Congrats big time.

    Thank you everyone! Means a lot, and I'm very grateful. I learned more from bow hunting this year than I think the last 10 combined, which is why this deer is the first to go on the wall
