Awesome Izzy, congrats again my PR brutha!

We ran into Gregg, Robert ,and John while going to set the pop-up blind trap. He filled us in on his "deer fight" in the water!!!
•  -

That afternoon found me in a tripod that I've killed hogs out of on my last two trips to Solana. Last year I pulled a double just like Izzy and missed out on the triple. But the wind wasn't my friend on this evening. I saw plenty of deer, but nothing close...
•  -

Next morning I was in another tri-pod Michael had hunted our first evening. He had some close encounters too. Again, although I saw plenty of deer, nothing came close despite a good wind. This was playing out time and time again, these deer just weren't interested in corn as much as usual this time of year. All the new "greenery" had them foraging just about anywhere. The views...

As I sat there watching intently for deer I got a buzz in my pocket. It was a text from Rob....
"buck down...spined!"
•  -

As David likes to say..."insert guide"...
•  -

Rob and Terry...
•  -


Wasn't soon after my phone buzzed again...

This one from Michael(sunnyhillarcher)...Something to the effect of..."Rob and I did our part, now how about the rest of you slack-a$$e$"...Michael had shot a deer as well...I have pix but will wait for Michael to tell his story.....

Thanks Iz.....those were the ones I was hollering about....I love em!!!

BTW...here's yet another example of a tuff shielded SOUTHERN hog that some folks claim there's no such thing. This one was just like the one I put on the shot placement thread.....knocked on him and you would have thought it was the front door to the ranch headquarters.

Can ya say STOKED!!!...well, that's what I was several times during this hunt.


We'll, I was just glad to be there for these experiences....

Gregg Dudley was SO PUMPED to get back he was about to jump out of his skin. To see him get that buck was a true highlight...and the pics do not do it justice,....I can't find a pic that shows the true width. Congrats yet again Gregg, and thanks for sharing your excitement.....

Rob....what can I say...Yep, I was there after a 40 hiatus ....After he text me the same 'spine' message....he then texted me 'should I field dress him?"....I said 'NO....Re-Load'!!! Like I said earlier....he's a great buck and was tickled to death for him.

And I always LOVE a good hog story...especially when they are large ones, they are a challenge not only to get on, but to get into far enough. Love to see folks use a bit heavier arrow just for this reason. A true testimony for a sharp head(in this case wide and double bevel) and a heavy total weight arrow(no 'extreme/ultra' acronym needed)....just a SMART common sense set up ....and all from a 47# bow. Got through not only that shield....but that caked mud that is so obvious in most of the pics on that 200#er.

And Carlton.....3rd time is the charm my man.....you sure were 'lite up' that night over your 1st trad kill and rightfully so....that was cool.

I have a bit of a story also, one that is very special more so to me than anyone else, yet Curt Cabrera understands....I hope to tell it tonight if I can get some pics in here, and see if Curt wants to run his parallel to mine, they are both very similar.

Gregg told me I would be reliving my miss over and over and was he ever right. I can't get it out of my head. Here's a picture showing the scene of the crime. I had to shoot around those limbs and my camera phone didn't pick up a good shot of the other small limb in the way. The buck was standing to the left of the feeder.

I want a do over. [banghead]
