"2017 General Season Archery Buck"

I was fortunate enough to have another successful archery season. I shot this buck over Labor Day weekend, and I couldn't be more happy! On opening weekend we were one man down in our hunting group since Nate aka (Snoodafruff) was on Elk Ridge killing his own monster buck. So it was just Tony aka (huntnmulies) and myself. We hunted Saturday and Sunday and saw some great bucks. I had two dandy bucks in my stand first thing Saturday morning, but things didn't work out - I was waiting for a better shot at one of them but it never came. Tony had 2 encounters with this buck, but couldn't get a good shot. The weekend went by quick since we had to come home on Monday to get back to work. The upcoming weekend couldn't get here quick enough! On the second weekend I went down solo, I hunted hard and covered a lot of ground but I couldn't find the ones I was after. The third weekend proved to be a charm - me, Nate, Tony, and his 12 year old son had the mountain to ourselves. On Saturday morning I was in my treestand and saw some bucks in the trees to the West but the trees were to thick to really get a good shot at anything. After the morning hunt we were back at camp exchanging stories and strategizing. That afternoon with Nates help we moved the treestand further to West where I had seen deer cross through every weekend. On Sunday morning I got in my stand just before 6:00 AM, about an hour later I heard a noise and saw 5 bucks coming through right where I had been seeing all the other deer cross, he stopped at 25 yards and that's when I took my opportunity to end it. It was awesome to share this experience with such good friends. And thanks to Tony for being a pack mule;)
