Colorado 3rd season ! Another.... (the does are down also )

Great hunt and just an amzing time spent with my youngest son Arlan. We passed up lots of bucks and several good bucks (which amazed me that my son would pass several of them). My son never even fired a shot until Wednesday, and then I blew it by not ranging it twice, and having him aim to high and ended up blowiing off the G2 and G3 of a giant 180" buck on the left side. After that he just wasn't as impressive and decided to shoot another buck that was with "BROKEN" (the big 180" buck) and closed the deal on Thursday night with a awesome 317 yard shot standing right beside "BROKEN" taking the top of his heart right off.

My cousin also took a great buck hunting with us opening day !

And her husband also took a good one the same night as Arlan !

My dad and daughter have not had the same luck in unit 41 with thier doe tags and I have 2 days left to fill my unit 41 doe tag. Good luck to all still hunting !

Great job Quinton!!  My

Great job Quinton!! 

My family had a very great year but it's obvious from the pictures that yours has done even better. That's a lot of great buck to put together in one season or one year actually with the one your wife got earlier.

Congratulations to everyone on some great bucks!

Thanks for the comments !

Thanks for the great comments all ! Thumbs up

As for the does... we made it back out yesterday and got the tags filled. It was almost tougher than the buck hunts this year and I could not believe the amount of hunters and pressure on those poor deer in unit 41. Every time you seen a deer it was hualing butt ! We all three filled our tags, but I did not get a pic of dads doe.

My daughters doe.

My doe

We had a great year this year and as always I enjoyed all the time spent with my family and friends in the GREAT OUTDOORS ! Thumbs up

Good job on the does also. My

Good job on the does also. My daughter never had a chance to get out with hers at all. My son had one but we only got out for two hours each of the last 2 nights and were unable to find one that would stand still. Almost got one last night but she spooked and was gone and still going for a slong as we could see her. Funnty thing is we could have killed 2 more bucks tonight with one being a hog of a 5x5. Oh well that guy has to wait till next year to go home with us.

Congratualtions again on filling all your tags

Geez!  With all the success

Geez!  With all the success this season you're kind of making the rest of us look bad.  Although we didn't hunt deer in Colorado this year (we went with a hunting buddy on his deer hunt, but we didn't have any tags), I doubt we would have done nearly as well.  Pretty good looking deer too.

Congrats on another great hunt and on all of your success this year.:=D>

Congratulations on all the

Congratulations on all the deer. Those are some fine looking bucks and nice size does too. Glad to hear you got out with your son and had a great time. Spending time with the kids and family is a great part and reason for the hunt. I am sure your freezer is full after filling all those tags. Great job and good eating for sure.
