Last hunt of the year success

Post  TheCReW on Sun Dec 07, 2014 5:59 pm

Our season closed today and I was lucky enough to tag out!  Definitely the toughest season we have had in years with mature bucks few and far between. Managed to first get pictures of this buck in October, and I set up a blind for him then, sat dozens of times and finally he walked out and I managed to get an arrow through him at 33 yards. Lindsay actually passed up this buck earlier in the year but there is no way I could do it, he just looked to darn good. As soon as he came in he stared at the blind for probably 20 minutes before finally stepping into my shooting lane.  Not having any history with him I wasn't sure on his age but he was definitely an old buck. His body was probably 30-40 pounds heavier thank Lindsays buck who we knew was at least 5, so this buck must've been 6+. Needless to say, I am really happy with how the season turned out!

Congratulations chad!  I had a feeling we hadn't seen the last of droppy when you posted those last trail camera pictures. I'd love to see a pic of the mounts together when they're finished. The pair you and Lindsay killed this year are just awesome!
