Both of those are very nice

Both of those are very nice buck!  I really like the second one, as I kinda like the real high and tight racks.

Congrats to both of you!!!!

Thanks!  My buddy shot the

Thanks!  My buddy shot the second deer a 9 pointer.  It was his first time hunting and first deer ever!  He was tall and heavy.  I told him that he was lucky to kill a deer his first time hunting and to kill a nice buck too, most hunter don't.  I was just glad to have someone to hunt with.  We shot our deer less than 5 minutes apart.

We live in Altus, Ok.  We're in the Air Force.  We hunt both public and private land.  I was able to get permission to hunt 200 ac of private land this year.  We shot those two bucks on private land.  I shot another 8 pointer with my bow on public land earlier in the season.

Yes - Thank You!

First and foremost - Thank You and pass that along to your buddy.

I appreciate your service to our country to help keep us free.

Second - - Great Bucks!

That must have been an exciting day for you guys! And 5 minutes apart, too.

That high rack is a real beauty (yours is nice, too). Thumbs up

So glad that you could enjoy that experience together.

Thanks for the report.

Nice deer!

Congrats to both you and your Buddy on a couple of fine deer! Seems to me that with some careful planning you might just be able to plan your mid-tour leave around hunting season  Yes  My very understanding wife saw me do just that when we were stationed in Germany and I came back to the states for 3 weeks to hunt. I do hope you can plan something for next year!

Thanks for your service to our great Nation!
