Back for my 3rd with AWGS and once again Tyler was my guide. Though things started slow with warmer temps than normal, it snowed the evening of the 4th day and the cold settled in. Early on the morning of day 6 I spotted a buck way down my cutline. Though he was too far for a shot I could tell he was high racked and mature. As soon as he cleared the cutline I reached down and grabbed my rattling antlers. I banged the bone for 8-10 seconds and had no more than sat them down when I noticed the buck coming back out of the woods and coming my way. At 400 yards he was coming straight towards me. It was then I saw something hanging down from the right side of his rack! This was "my buck". At 350 yards he started to angle off the cutline towards the woods. As the AWGS guys tell you, I hollered at the buck and got my shot just before he made it into the trees. After Tyler arrived on site we went down to the location of the shot. He picked up the track and told me to "stay right here". He went into the thick woods a short distance and 30 seconds later whistled for me to come on in. For the second year in a row I walked up to a beautiful drop tined buck!! 3 years and 3 beautiful bucks. Tyler and I came up with a simple equation for success - Preparation plus opportunity equals success. Preparation means your outfitter and you as the hunter. Go the extra mile in order to be ready for when opportunity knocks. AWGS will do their part and treat you like family. If you're a real hunter with plenty of patience, this hunt is for you!!
