My 30" double dropper archery buck

I went out and was just going out to scout today as I told my wife I was going to stay at home all day but around 3 I got bored so emailed wife and told her I was taking our son out to go scouting. Well got out to my normal spot to glass and spotted some deer about 400 yds away. I told my son not to come up on the hill or that side of it. Well a hour and a half later the deer blew out of there and I headed back to my truck and there stood my son on top of the ridge. After chewing some butt we headed to find them again. Well around 5 I spotted him bedded up against some rocks about a mile away from the first spot. I almot just walked right up to him before he even knew I hit him with an arrow. I shot down off the top at about 15 yds and he only had 1 doe with him by now. Before he had 9 doe's. Well he ran up over the next rock pile about 75 yds and I saw the doe still running and knew he was down. I came up over the next rise and he was bedded so I walked clear around him in full view up till about 40 yds and hit him again. He died fast now and me and my son loaded him and headed home after 20 calls to all my friends. He measures 30" wide and is a 8x9. Also has double drops on him. Not bad for just a day of scouting.
here are 3 different pics of him.

SOB THAT'S A KEEPER!!! I love the mass and droppers. Congrat's! My scouting lead to hearing a Lion and seeing tracks - but no deer. My hunting lead to no deer and no lion. So far. 2 weeks left...

Nothing like going after a mature buck . This buck was 4 1/2 yrs old. We have a good gene pool where I hunt.
Do it MDB. I would try to return during hunting season. They are the funniest to hunt besides bears.

The nice thing about hunting is some days you never know exactly what your going to get into (of course that's the down side too). Congrats!
