Default Once a lifetime

For my birthday I got to arrow this once in a lifetime native Texas buck at Rancho Encantado in Dimmit county. The perfect shot went through his heart and he didn't go 60 yards. I am beyond blessed for the opportunity and for Rod aka Atfulldraw for putting up with my unending deer addiction. After a whirlwind day yesterday cleaning and caping this buck and carting him all over South Texas to be entered in the deer contests Rod asked me what I was going to do the next day. Duh...it's deer season so we keep hunting!

Congrats and glad to read y'all are still together.
When I saw you were managing the Encantado I didn't know if that meant splitsville.
I know, non my bidness, but good to see nonetheless.

2 bucks in 3 days Congrats again!

I have never been so worked up over a deer! He had me pretty rattled. My heart was thumping so loud I was sure that he was going to hear it. I had to take about five minutes just to breath before I felt I could settle in to make a good shot.
