"Archery Flashback to 2014"

In 2014, 3 of us drew archery tags for an unspecified CA X-zone. I remember being a little disappointed after a scouting trip, so going in, I realistically lowered my expectations. Remember, don’t pass on the first day, what you’d shoot on the last day…... We’ll, opening day, I just couldn't pass up a broadside shot a respectable fork at 43 yards.

I hung out for 2 more days to help my buddy get his deer (and he did, 3x3).

But what I saw over those two days was everything I had hoped this zone would offer, but didn’t previously see. In fact, our “neighbors” had 2 studs, a 6x5 and a big 4x4.

I can vividly remember some of the bucks I saw, but these two were the biggest (I took these pics from the road on Sunday, after I was tagged out). BTW, the second buck was taken the next day, same clearing and I helped drag it out. Using my arrow as a measuring device, I believe it was right around 27”.

Archery season just ended and it’s tag soup again… But I remember 2014 like it was yesterday!

Hello Stuart, I'm the neighbor that had the 4x4 and my friend had the 6x5 you saw at our camp, and it was my sons buck you helped drag out that was a little over 27". Good to see you back on the site. Hope things are well for you.

Downhill,
I hope your still grinning from that hunt! You guys took some incredible animals. Your son (Taylor or Tyler?) killed a beast and I was cool to see first hand!

Stuart

Yep, Tyler is his name,(good memory). Good luck on your future hunts, and hopefully we'll run into each other again.
