Hey good job. While he may not be the biggest, he is going to be some good eating.

I was out for about 3 hours. It started raining at about 1 and I got him around 3. I got few pics on my trail cam and had only seen 3 other bucks scouting, or I would have held out... considering it was a good tag to draw.. not the d-zone

I went out this weekend for Archery openers saw some animals but couldn't seal the deal. Its always exciting to get so close. Did see a few pics of a mountain lion roaming near our camp from some other hunters in the area. Its always an adventure!
