From Scouting Picts to Success Picts
« on: September 05, 2013, 03:43:22 PM »
Some of you might remember the thread where I posted some scouting pictures.

Well on September 4th 2013 I was able to full fill a 10+ year dream of killing a velvet mule deer.
Icing on the cake was that he was a target deer that I had been watching grow for 2 months and have a lot of footage of him.

For those interested I put a quick tape on him at the taxidermist and goes just over 177" green

Sorry for the short note but I have to head out, I have a bull elk tag to try and fill

Was on a solid bull tonight, got to 58 yards. He was every inch of 345. The girlfriend was with me and I wanted her to shoot him so we tried to get closer but it didn't work out. Back on him in the morning

Still playing cat and mouse every morning and every night. You guys will be the first to know when he hits the ground.

Well this morning I took a cow elk; perfect shot and she only made it down hill 80 yards before piling up. The shot was 37 yards and had a complete pass through. I also had the herd bull come by at about 26 yards; he was a 7X6 that would have gone about 320. I let him walk to live another day; he just isn't what I am looking for. Going to go back and start chasing the other heard again; the herd bull there is quite a bit bigger over there

I was going to start a new thread but I figured since I do have ample scouting pictures of this guy that I would just add to this thread.

September 15 2013 was a very eventful day for me. I managed to take this great bull and I'm super happy about that. My girlfriend was standing right beside me when I should so it is that much more special that I got to share it with her.

Enjoy the pictures and best of luck to everyone else
