4D thundersnow buck

I awoke to some white stuff today. After a 1.5 mile walk, I was set by 6:30. It was snowing and started to really come down. Thankfully I had a ball cap hat cause it was pretty bad. Could only see about 75 yards when the thunder started. This is the second time I've witnessed thundersnow in this hollow. To the west, is a mountain top that is 2700 feet. I wonder if this creates the violent weather I've witnessed here. It rains and snows here when there is nothing in the forecast or visible on the radar. The snow was coating me quickly but at 7:19 here comes this buck. It was one I have cam pics of, have seen spotting and was #6 on my list.

I cut him up and caped him out on the spot. Dad make it down by the time I was done (and once the snow stopped). Nice to have some help as it was in a bad place. All uphill to the truck.

Here's some pics.







Went to move him and his antler popped off !



These gamelands deer go way back in once the pressure starts. This pic was about 300 yards off the road. As the crow flys, I shot
him .78 miles from the cam pics.





It's a good spot. Just not today.

Awesome! Love the pics and story.

The sleep of a laborer is sweet, while the rich man tosses and turns, worried about his possessions.
