    well captured. Congrats on the deer and the experience. Also sorry to hear about your grandfather, I talk to my granddad most often in a tree as well. He passed last September and must have passed all of his luck to me, because I've been on fire since he passed. Must be the knife he handed down. I'd give it all back for one more afternoon in the woods with him.

    Thanks again everyone. I still can't believe that it happened opening day. Weight off my shoulder. The rest of the season is just icing now. No does are safe though. Lol

    Here is the euro. I got a wall mount that I'll place it on. I'm happy with how it turned out. Quick and cheap. It will be sweet to look up at this on the wall. :tu:
