Thanks! I remember that, hard to believe that was 11 years ago already!!! Next time you're around that area bud, don't hesitate to give me a call. If you're serious, I'll keep you in mind.

Just curious, did you use a Slick Trick or a Killzone?

While those are both great heads and I use them regularly, my #1 is the Ulmer Edge. I used an Ulmer on this buck.

Unfortunately, they don't make them anymore, but I should be good for sometime as I bought close to 20-25 packages.

The way I look at it now, only certain animals are "Ulmer Worthy"!!!!!!

Thanks for the kind words, but you have raised the game! Congrats on another monster hill country slammer! Love it!

Enjoyed the video....and glad that little doe didn't ruin your hunt. She was sketchy.

Congrats on another great buck. Y'all are consistently killing mature big bucks on low fence - that's great now a days for sure. Heck we been raising big 8's with a fence all these last few years. Great genes y'all have and nutrition and age!

You should add all your boys pics now - he following daddy and had huge trip -I think more people here gun hunt these days anyway . Rarely come on here these days
Well done -

Thanks, I appreciate that! Yes, that little doe was definitely giving me fits. "Sketchy" is an understatement. Every time I was getting ready to draw, she sensed it rather through sound, movement, or 6th sense. I've said it for years, but in my experience...it's almost always easier to smoke a mature buck than a springy doe!!!!!

You are always welcome bud...just don't bring Bobby. I'm kidding!!!! But seriously, don't bring Bobby!!!! I kid! I kid!

Thanks bud! Yeah, I have no idea what I was thinking. I didn't mention it in the original post, but I went after the buck that morning. He came strolling past and offered a shot, but I forgot my camera arm in camp and I didn't want to shoot him off camera. That evening when he came out, I initially passed but quickly regained my senses. Trust me, I'm truly glad I did and it all worked out.

Guys, I really appreciate all of the kind words and comments. It's enjoyable to share the story, pics, and video footage, but the positive feedback always makes it more special, Thanks!!!!!

LOL Mitch!!!! I love my ASAT!!! Would be cool to have one in KUIU too though. Unfortunately, I usually change bows about once every 10 years...rather I need it or not! .

I'll probably hang on to this one for sometime. While I like the custom dipped ASAT, the handle made from mesquite wood in Brady is the icing on the cake!

Thanks again bud!
