Opening morning meat buck.
(Sorry for how blurry the first pic is. It was raining pretty good and I didn't want to ruin the phone. It was a couple of hurried shots and then the break down.)
Had him in the scope for 5 minutes, thinking, "I'll never get a booner if I shoot less; but I just opened a business and need to spend some time there, he was a mature buck, and my wife's favorite meat. No regrets. Older buck, his teeth were pretty much worn down and with those crab claw fronts, none of the trophy hunters should be too butt-hurt.
First opening morning ever, that I didn't see one other hunter and none of the usual droning of atvs/utvs. Nice quiet hunt in the rain.
