After several days of unsuccessful stalks and having a very very close encounter with a mountain lion, my son Chris was finally able to get it done. After having to relocate this buck after he walked out of site, Chris stalked into position, then sat on this buck for 3 hours in the hot Nevada sun waiting for this buck to make a move. He thought he was closer than he actually was (miscalculation on which brush clump) when the buck finally stood Chris had to make a quick downhill shot at 54 yards. His first shot deflected off an unseen twig and headed for the sun, the buck did not have a clue he was a target and gave Chris another chance, this time it made an unobstructed flight to the buck and drilled him. We watched him run over a crest at a couple hundred yards and disappear, then a huge dust cloud filled the sky as we hoped he hit the dirt and began rolling to the creekbed in the bottom of the Canyon. After cresting the hill we discovered that was exactly what happened with the buck piled up near the creekbed, Great Day!!!! The packout was an absolute nightmare for myself, 3.5 miles and 6 hours, blisters on pretty much every part of my foot that touched my boots. I'll be hard after it again this coming weekend after a week of healing. Congratulation's Chris on another great hunt to remember.
