Well I was there so I can give you the run down... smilies/wink.gif
We had been hunting pretty much all day in some steep crap and had seen a bunch of deer but nothing really worth shooting. About 330 we decided to go check another area that is just north of my house. When we pulled up I told him I was running to my house for refreshments, and would be right back... By the time I got to my house (about 5 minutes) there was already a message on my machine saying he spotted a buck and told me where he was parking his truck. I grabbed the stuff and then went to meet him. It turns out he had spotted the buck working some does along a ridge right above where we usually parked. He just got set up on the ridge right below the trail the deer were walking and after all the does passed he had a 40 yard shot and made a good hit. I waited for about 15 minutes at the truck then saw him coming back with his thumbs up so I knew he hit the buck. We waited a little bit then went to track it which took all of about 5 minutes once we found blood. The buck only ran about 40 yards or so. The tracking was easy but getting that thing through all the cactus and off that mountain was a pain... Of course he has helped me haul a few critters of mine so I did not mind at all.
