Nv buck down
Well, where to start....First and foremost, a HUGE shout out to a few boys that went far and beyond anyone could ask for, these guys didnt have a tag at all, just wanted to come out and hunt....
Dave Nicholson Eric Welsh, love ya guys to death boys, always there from the highs to lows....best huntin buds a guy could ask for!!!
Now...8 days of craziness.....this will not be a hunt any of us will forget....between the fire department....the horses and hounds... to the Christmas party we got to crash....the the travel trailer burning to the ground...to us Ca boys being called some names.....(almost going to blows).....yet the them Nv boys playin our game to finally find deer...the laughs....wow..my sides still hurt...I could go on and on and on....LOL!!
This was a last day last hour buck....was the craziest 6 hour stalk Ive ever had to do....playin cat and mouse with these 3 bucks all that time...with light fading fast on that final day, they of course decided to get up and feed away from me....with little to no cover on that mtn. I couldn't catch them any better the 100 yards....they fed into just a little depression on the hill side and it was now or never...finally getting to us my knees to move a little quicker I finally closed it down....80 yards....nope...got to get a little closer...just one more move across the open I got the little sage bush I told myself I was going to shoot from.....rolled on to my knees and ranged...74.8 yards....as they feed away the 4x4 in front...my buck...and the 3x3 bringing up the rear, had no Idea I was there.... My buck turned broadside feeding with no clue there was about to be carbon put in the air.... I drew bubbled out and and split um on his pocket....felt perfect...they all busted...as I stand and see my buck turn to go down hill his opposite side is covered in blood....pocket shot in the heart....it was done!!!
I had not spoke to no one in 6 hours, I knew Nate and Dino were ontop with me at one time, but I left them 6 hours ago....So when I stood to stand with fist in the air it was awesome to look way up the Mtn. and see Nate standing with fist in the air as well.....Nate seen it all unfold.....heck he took a pic of my buck 2 min before he died!!! I had lost my phone somehow in all the belly crawlin....somehow my pants got unzipped and fell out....I went back and finally found my phone....had to call Dave....I might of played with them a bit....but when I told Dave it was done....Dave Eric and Dom went crazy. I explained to Dave how to get around to where I was....they were commin in HOT!!! Myself, Nate and Dino all waited for the rest of the boys to come around and meet, we all went in togather...blood trail was crazy...he had run 50 yards straight down hill and piled up in a sage bush...we all got to see him for the first time togather!
Im pretty sure you could here us all for miles away, we did it! We came to Nv. to kill a good buck and we did it!!!
Was one of the most physically and mentally hardest hunts Ive done...and would do it all over again!!!
Thanks boys for the help makin memories that will last a life time!!!
Sorry for long post....so much more to add....could be here all day!!!
