Congratulations to your dad! My dad hunted Gillespie county for over 70 years; started in 1949 on a lease for $12 per year.
Unfortunately, dad passed away two years ago.
Opening weekend was something he never missed. Enjoy making memories while you can.

Default Getting pops in there with him and another view

I appreciate all the kind comments, his shoulder quit on him a few years back so he had to pick up a crossbow (wasn't happy about it). He started the weekend with a nice cull, had no brows but 10" G2's that ended up scoring 106 with the crossbow and finished out with this one using the boom stick. Haven't scored him yet, I think he would have busted 130 if that 10th point would have been there, probably going to be just shy. Regardless, a happy man. He had this same buck at 15 yds with his crossbow about 5 times last year but we had given him a pass. Cool to watch it all come together. I cherish every minute we have in the woods together - get out there and do the same as often as you can!

I must be pretty nearby. I have a couple of very large axis coming into my setup, one of which is just huge.
