Congrats on a great buck.

I'm in the same boat. For some reason, a mature 10 has eluded me. I have like 7 really nice 8pts on the wall, and last year I had 2 3yrold beautiful 10s right beneath my stand for over an hour, but I've never been in position to take one I would actually take.

I let 3 of them go last year, so hoping this year they're shooters.

Was super excited for you, nobody knows better the patience and work you have put in the last 8yrs since we started hunting together. There is not a better lease mate than you that’s for sure......but I need thick skin

I am so glad I decided to sit with you, it reminds a person what true joy hunting provides to people. I think you were more excited than both my girls for their first deer.

Was a great weekend and one we will remember for quite some time!

I was doing good at Holding back my tears of joy for you until you said "I had a long talk with God thanking him for all the great things". That's when I teared up.

Yes he will. My wife out of the blue last night at dinner said You should put the deer over the TV. I just about passed out.

Thanks everyone. I'm going to spend the rest of the season trying to decide on what's next at this point I'm not sure still on cloud 9. The one thing I can say is even if it's another 11 years I will enjoy every minute I'm in a stand heck just in the deer woods is good enough.

Just to update I got my mount back today and hung on the wall. The wall is to dark so I plan too call a painter tomorrow. But to day is just exciting as the day I got him.

Thanks to Ericks Taxidermy in Haslet.
