Just got back from my CO unit 40 3rd season hunt. This was the biggest buck we could turn up in 5 days. Tons of does. Not sure where all the big boys were hiding. The locals said it was a tough year.
I have ate 2 unit 40 3rd season tags in the last 5 years..... mere shadow of what it was.

So my 78 year old father and his 75 year old brother decided they didn't like the DIY camps at 9-10,000 feet that I've done the last few years, so they booked a Nebraska Deer Hunt together. Got the Text on Saturday "2 Shots. 2 bucks. 240 and 140 yds."

Had to wait a couple days before I received a grainy picture on text. Couple days later I get emailed this one

This morning I reached out to uncle, and he sends me his....

They are both shooting Pre-64 Winchester Model 70's (.264 Win Mag and .270). Man the stories those rifles could tell!

I watched this deer for 3 plus hours debating on whether to attempt a stalk and try to take him. There was a couple of larger deer spotted earlier in the trip but I wasn’t able to locate either of them the next day and with the forecasted warmer temps the roads had already started to get greasy in the afternoon. Mr. Buck finally decided to head up the ridge I was on with his does on the way to the haystacks for their nightly raid. I was able to close the deal at about 80 yards.

Huge thanks to my buddy for helping me load the deer off the hill and hang it overnight. He also used the big green beast to pull me out of the snowdrift I buried my truck in the day before.
:bash:
Congrats to all of you that were lucky enough to hunt MT this year.

On the road again.
Cousin came up from Mississippi for the Illinois shotgun season. Called me Sunday, I was home smoking a turkey, said he shot a buck.
Not many details, but this is what I found when I got out there. He didn’t make it easy on me! We got him out and Darrell couldn’t have been happier! 077EA8A5-1444-4C8B-A331-1C57AEEFF7B5.jpeg FE0F5360-3F65-4CD7-9A45-CBCBB5153090.jpeg
