Default Kansas Giant

After 13 yrs of going to Kansas, My Dad finally killed a true giant. He is 83 yrs old and can hardly get around anymore, but he won’t miss a hunting trip. We had blind set up on a ridge that he could drive the 4-wheeler right up behind his pop-up. On the last morning while we were taking stands down, I told him to just sit tight until we got to him to take his stand down last. He called me just as I was getting to the truck to let me know he had shot a “pretty good 10”. So he said. His eyes aren’t what they used to be, so he didn’t realize exactly what he had shot. I told him to just hold tight for a little bit and we would be there in about 30 minutes to give him some time. We got there and asked where exactly the deer has been when he shot. No blood at the spot where he shot, but it was far down the trail that we began to find blood and it was quite a lot once it started. Both sides of the trail, so I knew it was good hit as it looked like it was spraying out of both sides. Not 40 yds down the trail we found him. He wasn’t quite dead yet, but he was down for good. Turns out, his crossbow bolt had broken both shoulders. He hit him a little forward, but it did the job. It took my Dad a while to walk down in the draw where we were with his deer. I told him to take his time, but he wasn’t going to believe what he had killed. He had killed the deer we called the drop tine buck. This deer had a huge drop tine when I first got pictures of him, but broke it off in Late October. This is by far his biggest deer ever. Kansas has been good to him a few times over the years, but never this good. Those deer will score just a little over 180 before he broke off the drop tine. I don’t know how many more seasons he has left, but this will definitely be one to remember. He is so excited and proud to have been able to kill this deer

I really enjoyed getting your text that your dad got him a giant. Just an awesome buck. I’m a fan of that mass. He did good.

Sharing a hunt with your Dad is such a special thing. Makes me happy seeing it.

I understand so much better now the importance of making as many memories as you can.

Well done. I’m happy for you and your Dad. Big congrats to him. This is what hunting is all about.

BIG congrats to both of you! Obviously that's a great, great buck, but, more than that it's what it represents.....a father and his son, and all that implies. The mount of that fine animal will represent a lot more than a great deer to you guys. I have no doubt it'll be handed down to somebody who it will also represent more than just a deer.

Great stuff and congrats again!
