Default Wifeís 10pt...Irion County 2017.

We caught up to an old 10pt on 11/25/17.
My daughter named this buck last year ďMr. KrabbsĒ (From the cartoon Spongebob Squarepants). Lol

He was #1 on the hit list this year. Heís been hanging around since 2014 and became a major feeder hog last season.

We rolled into the lease that Saturday for an evening hunt. We were running a little late but managed to get in quick to my spot called ďPump JackĒ and corned up the road real good up to 100 yards.

Soon we had deer filtering into the road feed and about an hour later I got a glimpse of her buck making his way down into the draw. I didnít want her to get buck fever too soon so I waited till he got into the draw before I said heís here. I however, was shaking with so much excitement that I could barely keep the binoís on him. Lol

He started making his way to the road were the doe were and thatís when I told her to get ready.

He stopped at 86 yards and stood perfectly broadside. Big mistake on his part....I was watching in the binoís as the 308 went off. She hammered him and dropped him in his tracks.

Itís was a great moment we shared with high fives and a big ole hug as he was down for the count. She was beyond excited.
I am so proud of her and always thankful for the times we get to hunt together.




And her buck....Mr Krabbs

Oh hell is that a partial smile I see in that first pic?... I don't blame you...I'd smile too if I got to hunt with Jennifer!

Congrats again to Jenn the Deer Slayer and her nervous, shaking in the moment, guide.

Thanks for the support and the comments, guys. It was a very special hunt.
I’m thankful I have a husband who invests his time into making his family’s hunts just as memorable and important as his own. He gets the credit for all the hard work that goes into this; I’m blessed enough to reap the benefits of his labor. Thanks, Babe, for this amazing opportunity. To top it off, that 308 has sentimental value to my husband and myself. It was truly a special moment for us both.
