Glad I listened to my buddy today!(more pics)

Have had a very rough season this year.. Started a new job, have no vacation, outlook was poor... Got out 7 times prior to today for quick couple hour hunts.. Haven't seen a single deer while in stand.. Told my buddy I was gonna hang it up and just focus on getting my kids to see some deer and get some smallgame action.. He kinda yelled at me and told me to get my butt in stand tonight, and the first deer i'll see will be a shooter....

He was right... Big time.. Got out of work at 3:30, ran home, showered, drove to My buddies house and climbed in a stand I helped him hang last year, got in about 4:25... Saw nothing... At about 6ish, hear something behind me... Fox squirrel... 6:12.. same fox squirrel... Hear him again... Hey that sounds different.. Look behind me.. Hey! finally a deer!
Start to say to myself, Nice, now only if.... It's a buck! SHOOTER BUCK!!!! Stopped at 30.. Let her fly... Appeared to be a solid hit.. Deer just jumped, spun around and walked away to where he came from(thick brush between me and him at this point)... What the.... Heard him walking like 15-20 steps more.. Then nothing.. I was freaking out... Sat down, shot off a few texts to my budds... Waited 20 min... got down found my arrow. Good blood. Got out of there.. Called in the posse.. About 8 went in for him. Found him 40-45 yards from my arrow!


right after recovery


Just before processor/taxidermist




After taxidermist removed cape

7 point. 22 5/8" outside spread, 20" inside, R beam 24. 5/8", L 23 3/4", G2's are 11" & 9.5" brows are 4.75" and 3.75"..G3 3 3/8". 4.5" bases and additional mass measurements are all 4" also!.... Total is a little over 130" I guess.. Not bad for a 7 pointer!

Nice buck congrats

Teach your wife to hunt, then you will not have to hunt for her in the mall.
