Wife and I always spend veterans day together deer hunting, we hunt lots of other days, veterans day has been lucky for her last few years

we spent 6 different days hunting and 31.4 gps miles on the boots looking for a great buck, she has taken a 186 gross mulie and a couple 150 whitetails in east Montana,,,

this year I only scouted one 170 class buck, my son missed him during youth season, haven't seen him again until last night about 6 miles from where he was earlier,

any way, back on track, leave truck real early to hunt a block management /blm property, wind bad I told her were gonna blow out most of the deer on the flats and they will be in the steep stuff, she wasn't fond of the idea,

2 hours after daylight no decent bucks, after some glassing out in a little patch of grass I see horns, lots of them,i thought,,,,,,

spent long time crawling got to about 300 yards, used the doe bleat call, 8 does got up and this buck got up,,, I gave her the range told her not to look at horns and shoot,,,
1 shot 260 rem does it again, I told her you just shot one hell of a buck,,,,

little surprised when we walked up on this buck, he had a big tumbleweed stuck in his horns, hence points everywear I thought,

anyway a cool buck 9in circumference on the bases, testicles were the size of peanuts and the velvet on the bases was bloody were he had been rubbing,,

boned him out and a 2 mile walk she was happy, gonna do a euro mount biggest bases ive seen,,,

last year I took a 28in wide heavy buck in the same area, that buck had very tiny testicles also, wonder what is the odds of that,,,

Cool story. Maybe once the euro is complete, find a representative tumbleweed....as you saw him for the first time.
