Default Another all day sit in the Blind Pays Off

Got in the blind about 5:30 this morning. Still pre-rut in Tarpley so was just going to enjoy the colder weather and see what showed. Watched does come and go for 12 hours and then this stud stepped out. The 13” Remington XP-100 In .45-70 Govt let him have it. My first Aoudad and I couldn’t be happier!
God is good!
