Best Deer Ever!

Postby huntingal » Tue Nov 22, 2016 7:31 pm

This year I was lucky enough to hold onto one of our 3rd season landowner vouchers to use myself. These PLO tags can be wonderful or a curse. On the right day, at the right time, you have to hope the deer are liking your ground better than your neighbors. lol
I was also lucky to have filled my freezer with a young cow elk earlier, so for the first time in a long time I was able to "horn hunt" a little.
I wasn't able to hunt the first weekend, or even the first 7 days, but I wasn't too worried. I had a few bucks located prior to the season start.
Friday I checked my "honey holes"-no bucks. That super moon must have had them in super hiding. (???) I saw a couple smaller bucks that day, but nothing special.
Saturday morning, driving to check the "honey hole", this guy was with his girls. I didn't think twice. Before the sun was even up I had my personal best deer on the ground.

He's not super wide, but is super tall.

Beauty of a buck! Congrats on a successful elk and deer hunts. 3rd season was really tough with no weather for sure.
It ain't the size of the gun but the placement of the bullet.
