Nice buck...:thumbsup1: Congrats to your friend. Get's me thinking about my hunt tomorrow morning. I've got a lunch packed and I am planning on spending the entire day in the tree. Cam pics show the deer coming in the afternoon, but I don't have a time stamp so I have to just be thre and hope they come in before dark.
People think all KS bucks are huge, but htat isn't the case. What is the case is that there are some really big bucks here. I am fortunate to live in this state.
Nice looking buck. It does not really matter that he saw bigger deer if that is his biggest one to date. I guess it doesn't really matter if he saw bigger deer and the one that he took was not his best either. The only thing that matters is that he is happy with it and I don't see why he wouldn't be. The only thing that sucks about it is that he is done now. Good luck to the rest of you guys. It sounds like the rut is starting to kick into gear in accross the country so I am expecting even more pictures of you guys with your bucks soon.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
