    Had an absolutely blessed 2017 season. Was able to connect on my first buck.

    After having a rough early morning hunt, I decided to go back out after grabbing a bite to eat. She came in first, and I was hunting some pretty thick woods so I had to wait about 10-15 minutes before she gave me a clean shot. After I shot, she kicked her hind legs up, but took off pretty strong so I thought it was a poor shot. Decided to stay in the stand a little longer to give her time before I started looking for blood. About 15 minutes later a small spike, with 2 white hooves, ran down the hill and then out of sight. Right behind him was the 9 point. The 9 point was moving real slow with his nose up in the air. I took my shot as soon as he turned broadside. Gave him a few minutes before I climbed down and started looking for blood. Found good blood and called my wife to help me look for them both. Both deer were lung shots, and recovered within probably 60 yards of impact. Hunting with Rem 700 BDL 30-06.

    Both were shot on Sunday the 12th around 11:30-12:00.

    I should've taken a picture of this, but the buck had a pretty good chunk missing out of the top of his back where someone had grazed him that morning, or the day before. They did not hit bone, just meat and hair.
