Quality and Size

Postby sactribe » Mon Apr 11, 2016 7:22 pm

2016 is off to an awesome start. Two weeks ago I spent 7 hours for 6 old white sheds and then moved a mile away to a steep hill where I proceeded to pick up 16 more in just 3 hours, including 4 brown sets. One set was especially large and the other was a really cool 6X6. I finished the day with 22, which is a record for me. I have had several more good days since then, finding an older white 6 point beast (79") and then this last weekend I picked up four more big browns. One is a really big typical just under 84" and the other is a a big 5 point at 84-4/8", my biggest yet. I couldn't match any of the big ones from this weekend but I can't wait to look some more. I'm up to 60 total this year, which is my fastest start, and I still have many more hills to check out, including some of my best spots. I saw some boot tracks up on a steep slope yesterday and wondered what kind of crazy guy would wander up there. His tracks went right past a couple nice sheds!

Here are some more photos of the 6 point. Hopefully I can find the other side this year, but it is still a cool single, even if it is a little cracked and weathered.

You are doing a whole lot better than me this year. I am only finding 1 a trip for some reason. Guess I need to have my eyes checked or something. Nice job.
