Well its been a long gun season waiting to see the big boys show themselves. We knew they were around, as the trail camera and close encounters during archery season proved.

We left a small field until today to push and well, it worked.

 

My dad meandered his way through the field and I was posted in an adjacent field. I heard one branch break and turned around to see a long G-2, a nose, a butt and 4 feet 20 yards directly behind me. I pulled the gun up found a baseball size hole on his neck and pulled the trigger (not the shot I wanted but the only chance I was gonna get.). He dropped like a rock and didn't move. I knew it was a decent buck but the brush was so thick I didn't know just how decent. Dad made his way up to me and what a surprise we got. He had him at 30 yards in the same stand on Halloween with the bow but couldn't get a shot.

We aged him at 3 1/2 years old and he dressed out at 172 Lbs.

 

All and all it was a great way to end a long season and hope to tag another with the muzzleloader this week.

Good luck to everyone this week!
