Just got back Friday evening w/ my cousin Earl and two friends for a great week of chasing whitetails w/ Ken Fernburg and TripleB Outfitters. I saw shooters ( over 125 inches) each day, this big boy came in on Tuesday at 2:00pm. Yes, we actually hunted everyday ,all day long, glad I did. Had a big 6pt w/ a 20inch spread about 100 yards, I grunted and he turned, I snort wheezed at him and he came running. He got about 40 yards away and stopped. He kept looking behind me, thats when I heard this buck walking. The big 6pt laid down right in the logging road, never saw anything like it, guess it was a type of submissive behavior. Anyway, I slowly turned to see the 11pt about 20 yards away, I drew back and released. My arrow took out the heart and part of the lungs, I saw him crash over the hill. I was pumped, my first P&Y buck scored 143 7/8 (green) has 5 7/8 inch bases and dressed out at 205. Everybody saw shooters and my cousin Earl got one that scored about 135. The other two also saw plenty of buck, one buck was seen that would've easily hit 220!! Several in the 150-160 range were seen also. He does a great job and definitely puts you on the deer, thanks Ken and Eric for a great time. http://s526.photobucket.com/albums/c...t=PB100262.jpg
Great buck! No doubt it paid off staying out all day.
I have a client out there right now. His hunt started Friday afternoon - you were probably gone when he showed up. He saw 10 bucks Friday evening, one of which was in the 150's but too far for a shot. Buck sightings have slowed down the past two days for him most likely due to the warmer weather. I'm sure some bucks are also locked down with hot does right now.
Thanks for sharing the pic of your buck - a lot of mass on that 'ole boy. Did you age him? Just wondering if he was going the other way?
