Default 6th Annual Ashley Memorial Hunt - Live

Well I’m back at camp and deer is in the cooler. Not so much excitement this time other than I thought I was shooting spikes. This deer walked out and was huge bodied and with a rack that didn’t match. An obvious skim.

So what’s a guy to do but send pics to his guide(his daughter was playing in a playoff volleyball game) and show him the deer. He immediately said “shoot him if you wanna mess with him!” My mind switches to killing mode, never thinking about how big this deer is and how I would get him to camp. A few minutes later, he was bleeding in the brush.

It took a while to drag him out but getting him on the truck was a piece of cake. . He’s a 9 point with 3 other brow points, making him a 12. Pics do no justice to mass.
