Yep. God is good. I was sitting in the blind missing my dad and my little family when he (the buck lol) just appeared. I wasn’t even going to hunt due to my surgery but I decided I had cabin fever so I went. I’m glad I did. I’m grateful to my friends for helping drag his big ars to the house too!

My taxidermist is going to pull something out of her hat but a little like the McKenzie 8900 series but with his face “straight on”. She wants to showcase the tine length and the width as well as his body. He was really something to look at, big bodied, dark color. Just beautiful and they aged him to over 6.5. Almost like someone’s missing a hf deer lol.

Actually no but we haven’t been managing this ranch much past a year. I stopped running trail cameras so I can’t say he hadn’t been there the whole time. I think I started loosing a little of the “fun” of hunting with all the “recon” with the cameras.

We started focusing on being good stuarts of the land (I don’t know if I used that word correctly). Anyway, we just changed the game a little and decided to direct out attention to working the land, providing what the deer need and letting everything grow until the bucks are 5.5 and older before killing any. I think this is the best decision made. I passed on a BIG ten point too because I think he was about 4. I’d like to see him grow until he’s 6 or older.

I agree with the cameras/ recon, sounds like a great plan y’all have going on an evidently it’s working well.
Congrats again!

This is the mount we chose to go with but with but with custom foliage for the area he was taken.

What do y’all think?
