    A81F99B7-6A13-4355-A718-DCC982837AA1.jpeg Now most of the guys and gals on this site I suspect would pass on this buck. He is no Booner Bone but he is 4 yrs old. I knew that when I saw his body and had it confirmed by tooth examination from my deer biologist friend. What made this hunt even more special was that I didn’t have to spend my usual 70 to 80 hrs waiting. Took him and a doe on the same third morning out. Was a tense moment of truth as he saw me move twice. In a stare down where I dared not move a muscle. No giant rack but as I say. When a buck makes it 4 years past all my hunting neighbors he is a trophy!
