Of all the trips afield this season which one stands out from all the rest and why.

Mine would have to be my ML quota hunt at the new Grady County WMA. It was just opened up before archery season and I got 1 of 8 ML tags given. This was my second ever lotto draw. I did some good scouting during the bow season and learned the area well. But the fact I harvested my first deer of the season, first with a ML and a left handed shot too boot but most importantly was my deer being the first deer taken from the new WMA. Anyone can say they got a first for the season or with a weapon means heck even a week handed shot but how many can say the first for a new piece of public land/ WMA. I may have only taken a buttun buck but it may as well have been a B&C world record for me. I had plenty of missed opportunities before I got that deer but I think the big guy was pulling for me this time.

But my second deer taken a week later stands out as well because I had my son with me. Every deer I have ever taken I have always been hunting alone. To have my boy with me was great. He got to see first hand what it takes to get a deer from the field to the table. He helped me skin, butcher and package the deer. He still talks about it every chance he gets.

Mine would have to be when I was rifle hunting and saw a really nice wide 8 point 450 yards off but he was on someone else's property. I started grunting really loud and finally got his attention and then started rattling and grunting in sequences. He finally jump the fence coming toward me but had to come thru a bunch of brush that was about 250 yards in front of me. I kept rattling and grunting for several minutes (at least 15 or 20 minutes) trying to get him to show on my side of the brush thicket. I had about 10 minutes of good daylight left when I happened to look to my left and WOW...there was a really nice buck about 265 yards to my left and was really interested in the fight that he knew was going on. I was fortunate enough to get a good shot on him with my 300WSM and saw him stumbling in some brush. I had only a couple of minutes before dark to get there but I got to say it was probably the most excited I've been in a long time..I found him in only a few minutes and discovered he was a 12 point frame with 3 really nice kickers..Total of 15. Been hunting and harvesting deer for around 44 years and he was the nicest buck I have ever taken. I actually think I was as excited as I was when I took my first nice buck at 18. I'm now 61. I now know that this old body can still get the shakes..Thanks for asking Bull...you just helped me relive my hunt..Sasakwa :)
