Have the d zone bug for some reason and opted out of my statistically for sure B zone tag. Needless to say D zone been handing me some mud pie. Have a few day hunts left to find one then work on trying to kill it.
Took a while but finally got my 13 year old his first buck. Last year he committed to archery buck hunting only even though he had a either set tag and whiffed at 19 yards on the last day of the season on a decent forky. This year bucks were very sparse due to the lions. After finding this buck two different days in range but not getting a good rest he finally connected at about 100 yards. Single shot with the .243 dropped him in 30 yards. Talk about excited, I totally dropped the ball and didn't get a pic of both of us together.
