    I think this is my favorites.
    Shot this buck the morning before MN gun season a few years ago.
    Never seen so much buck activity as I did that morning and I really doubt I'll ever see one like it again.
    I know I seen at least 20 bucks.
    I shot this one (thinking) it was a 145ish buck that was coming back minutes after passing by to fast for a shot.
    This is right where he died. The rub behind me is on a 6" basswood tree. DSCF6036_zps20244186.jpg

    This is my first buck up in Alberta. It was a dream of mine as a kid to get to the Edmonton Bow Zone, and I ended up going there 5 times. I hunted dark to dark for 5 straight days in a foot of snow with temps in the low 20's before I killed him on my next to the last day of my hunt. He weighed 300lbs!

    On this day my son sat with me in the stand. We had a one man ladder set up so I strapped a hang on 90 degrees on the tree so we could both sit there. This was his first rut experience and it was an action packed day. IMAGE_145.jpg

    This wasn't my biggest buck to date but he was old and wise. Took some doing to figure him out and it was a season that I had a lot of time to do it. 12 yard broadside shot, he ran about 40 yards and piled up. The second pic is the piebald who 2 weeks later came in the same way and offered me the same shot. Unfortunately my buddy could not make it out to help take pics. 20171027_193507.jpg 20171122_175916.jpg

    This is my favorite picture, and my motivation. This is my dad and the buck that started it all for me. 1985, I was 9 years old. He shot it in the same woods that I hunt in today.

    I know I’ve posted this before quite a few times, but like I said this is what drives me.

    First 8 pter after hunting for 15 years. Yes it took me 15 years to kill a 8 pter.
    First decent sized buck two years later.
    First recurve deer.

    This buck was on his way downwind of me.
    I had some Wildlife Research trails end in my pocket.
    I took a twig or bark and poured some on it and threw it upwind of me( crosswind to him).
    He turned when he smelled it and came in on a string.
    The shot was close. 8_9 yards maybe?
