Great trip to WY in early Nov. It was a perfect trip. My kid made a nice stalk and shot. He packed most of his buck out. My share of the load was maybe 40 pounds. Icing on the cake was a really nice buck.
Thank you guys for the nice comments! Spotted him bedded from about a mile. Got to him about an hour later and he was asleep with his nose tucked towards his belly. Right horn was flat on the ground. Sat on him for ten minutes before he woke up. We bumped a doe on purpose and she woke him up. Then another 10 minutes until he gave my kid a shot. 125 yds and one shot from his .270. Didn’t even take a step. He was 26” wide. He killed him at 10:00 am and we had him to the truck about 4:30. Garrett packed about 80 lbs. mostly up hill for a mile and a half or so. I was a very proud Dad.
