Default 2 Books,1Season!

I have been blessed this year,the main reason I shot this Whitey,was for the double-throat patch, I have waited a lifetime for this opportunity!
And he ended up P&Y to top it off.
The day before Thanksgiving, this heavy 9pt (which weíve never seen before), came in on a string,behind a lone,hot doe.
He hunched up and was pissing down both back legs and rubbing together,while lipcurling behind the doe when I stuck him and he never knew what hit him!
He only took about 6 steps toward her and tipped over.
Whitey makes my 12th P&Y.


Earlier this year in the Rockies, I did a DIY Archery Muley hunt,5 years of waiting for points to draw a tag.........
Day 8,luck finally came my way off of Cochetopa creek!
32yd shot,sitting downwind from a sidehill trail, from dark timber,down to aspen meadows.I am still in awe over this Toad!
I took a disposable camera,as i did not have any reception and with the aid of a trail camera,to take pics as well. I had to stop in at walmart in Alamosa to develop pics when I returned,from both and then take pictures of pictures!



Iíll say this, it was the MOST greuling,wearing,hunt that iíve ever done! (Iím certain that the main factor is in my age & body condition)! I can honestly say,that this one whipped my arse!
Packed him out 2miles on my packframe,in 3 trips.

This stud goes in as a Booner at 184-6/8Ē

Congrats on your nice kill Yes age and body condition plays a huge part 3 yrs ago I went to Colorado at the age of 60 yrs old with my son and low and behold he made a kill on a nice elk and we both made 2 trips each 4 miles to the truck That kicked my butt Still to this day I ask myself why I waited to till I was 60 oh but I will do it again in a heartbeat By the way I love the shirt you are wearing because I played baseball for TCU in 75/76 season Yes I am an old fart as my son says
