[Eek!] DUDE...WOW! [clapper]

Congratulations on a great season…but, but, but…you can’t post a picture of an awesome buck like that and go mute! [dntthnk]

Out with it. What date did you shoot him? How did the shot unfold? Where you in a tree or on the ground? Did you grunt him in or rattle him in? Or was it plane blind luck? Details man we need details!

Don’t make me rate you. [bigsmyl] Only kidding.

I posted the full story initially on the Pow Wow, but I will summarize it. I shot him Nov.10 @ 1:30 p.m.,at 8 yards from a tree stand, which was the first time I had hunted this stand all year. Before I shot him, I shot at a big doe and buried my arrow into a sapling behind her shoulder. She ran off and trailing her was a huge P&Y 10 pt. I couldn't get an arrow out of my cat quiver, so the 10 pt. walked right past my stand without a shot. I began grunting and turned around in the stand. To my surprise, this 12 pt. buck was standing 100 yards north of me. He heard my grunts and began walking toward my stand, eventually picking up the same trail the doe ran down moments earlier.I made a good shot on him as he paused ( due to a mouth bleat ) where the doe had been standing moments earlier. It was a perfect broadside shot, burying the Montec G5 into his ribcage almost to the fletchings.

As you can tell, there was a lot of luck involved in the taking of this buck!

Congrats on a fine season. Your welcome to come hunt with me in MT anytime so long as you bring some of that stickbow mojo with you. Great Job!

Nice buck! Congrats on the Turkey as well.

Any time it comes together, buck, doe, fins, feathers, foliage, or any fur it is good!

Goke - Montana is magic!!

Thanks guys. Goke, I hunted elk once in Montana. That was an incredible experience. Though I didn't shoot an elk, I had a great time chasing those critters up the mountains. I would love to hunt MT again sometime. As far as Stickbow Mojo goes...I wish I had some to bring with me. I have been hunting long enough to know that I had a lot of luck going for me on the day I killed that buck. I'll be hunting for a lot of years before I get a crack at another buck like that one.

Kurt,

Congrats on your season last year. Any deer with trad gear is a trophy to me, no matter the size.

This buck was actually shot on a 40 acre piece of property, of which I have permission to hunt on 20 acres. I have only killed one other buck on this property in over 10 years, so it was a total surprise when this guy came by. The magic of the rut!

Best of luck in the future.
