3 1/4 inch wide track???

Is that a biggie?  My Dad went out to check the scrapes around his stand that he had hit 2 days ago with Tinks.  He said they were tore up again, and this time he actually got a print in one.  He said he laid his shotgun shell (2 3/4 inch) across the track, and he said that it was 1/2 inch past that.  There has been a big 12 spotted in the area, so Dad's hoping it's him.

Oh, and the highest branch broken off above one of the scrapes is just about as high as my Dad, 5'10".

I think he's a good one...... Wink

Well, coulda, shoulda, woulda

Well, coulda, shoulda, woulda for the opening weekend for my Dad.  He was in his stand opening morning Saturdy when he heard a twig snap just out of view.  He hunts in an area that he can only see clearly 50 yards or so.  He could tel it was a deer, and waited.  A few minutes later, he heard a loud commotion, and here comes a buck running right at him.  It happened so fast, he couldn't ge a shot right away.  The buck ran right under his tree, and as he swung around, the deer took a few jumps and into the swamp.  Dad says he coulda touched off one right at the last jump, but didn't risk it.  He said it happened so fast, he didn't know what hit him.

Oh well, my Dad is still out there. Has 14 days left to score.

 Someone across the road actually got that buck, since it had a broken rack he was pretty confident.  They also got this one across the road.  Not a bad buck.  They have 3 or 4 hanging at the camp across the road.
