My 2015 Rifle Season

I'm just now getting around to posting some pics...

It was another good year for my father and myself. I shot my small 7 pt on Fulton Co. public land on the first Sat.

my father killed his biggest buck in his 50th year of hunting in Clinton Co. on the 2nd Mon. also on public land. 19.5 inside spread, measured just over 130".

The bull elk came to about 8 yds on the first Tue in the rain. I have a great cell video of him.

Awesome! Must of been a fantastic feeling walking up to your Dad after he shot that huge buck. Congrats!

Is that the first time a bull got that close to you?

ACEarcher,

Yes, that was a fantastic feeling. My father isn't much of an antler hunter. He would have been just as happy with any buck but he was pretty pumped. It was just an overall great experience and a few hugs and hand shakes were definitely in order.

I have been close to a few bulls but none that big or while I was in my treestand. The best I could tell he was either a 6x7 or a 6x8. Either way it was ALOT of antler coming at me thru the laurel.

Thanks fellas!

Making memories !!!! You can't beat that.

Awesome Boot !!

The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Re: My 2015 Rifle Season

Wow Bootmud, your Dad killed a powerful Clinton Co Buck.
Congrats to both of you!
You should send in a tooth to get that big buck aged.
Did you weigh the buck?

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.
