Late hunt whitetail

Recommended Posts

We glassed up about 20 does and no bucks till around 9am. Then this guy popped out. Watched him for about 5 minutes then he beds. Wasn't sure if I wanted to kill him but I knew my buddy did. Either way that buck wasn't gonna spend one more night on the mountain. Stalked to 360yds. Set up again and waited for him to stand. Could only see his horns over the grass. I pulled out the spotting scope and judged him real carefully. After about an hour I decided to let my buddy have him. I have the rest of the hunt off of work, so I figured I have a good chance to find something better. Especially when drawing a rut tag is near impossible. Of course my bud kept asking me if I was sure and I told him Merry Christmas . At around noon he stood up and dropped him with one shot. 270WSM. Went up the hill to go get him and see the ground shrinkage, but to our delight he was everything. Super beautiful buck and some sore butt legs, got him off the mountain. Threw a tape and he's roughly 114.7 G and 107 N.

What a cool looking rack. Is it weird that the older I get, the more I appreciate the oddities?

I was a hard decision, trust me.

 

I'm guessing you have your sight on something special already if you passed that one up. You are truly an amazing friend Haha. Congrats to the both of you on working together on that buck, that thing is a TOAD!
