    13 year old Grandson got his buck with his bow. Very happy youngster.

    We're so thankful he was able to use it this year, hasn't had the strength to pull it back due to chemo treatments.

    I didn't look for this thread before starting one about my buck yesterday.
    I'll leave the original up and just post one pic here.
    Pretty stoked about this guy. Had him on cam since before season started, and finally saw him in the daylight.

    I suspect this young man doesn’t need to be told that all things are possible. They grow up fast. Some faster than others.

    Wonderful buck and he has outdone myself and I suspect many other hunters at the age of 13.

    My wife got this nine point around 845 this morning.
    Last year I coached her through everything. This year she did it all by herself.
    Now she gets to be babysitter while I hunt.

    It has been a pretty good year. Two hogs in North Carolina this last summer:

    Shot these three cull deer on a friend's property in Texas last week. The buck is actually mature, but never grew a rack past 6 points:

    And lastly, I shot this young bull water buffalo during our annual Bovine Bash in Hondo Texas this last weekend:

    Pray that his treatments continue to go well and many more hunts for this young man! This stirs all kind of emotions when kids are going through chemo, coming from familiarity with Cancer in our family.

    Got my 1st ever Deer Saturday. Used a 62gr Federal Fusion 223 on it. The deer jumped up when hit and landed dead right there. Shot was 50 to 75yds. I still have 2 more tags to use.

    Thank you for all the kind words and thoughts concerning my Grandson. Diagnosed with Leukemia over 18 months ago, is half way through a three year treatment program and progressing very well. Occasionally we have ups and downs, but he knows what God's plan is for his life.

    Well, I was fortunate enough to get on the board with a nice little buck on today's WI season opener. He was one of three bachelor bucks that cam barreling through the wetlands and across my shooting lanes at 12 noon. He was the largest of the three and I dropped him with a double lung hit. Good Ole self Bubba'd No4 Mk1, "Stubs" , gets it done again. Couldn't be happier! Now to get to work on them 5 antlerless tags ;)

    Be well and happy hunting folks.

    This was the first weekend of Illinois firearms deer season.
    On opening day, son #1 connected with a nice 9 pt that we have had trailcam pics of for four years. We nicknamed him "Big Ray" IMG_3195.jpg
    While he was tagging his buck, another shooter trotted right up danger-close.
    Saturday was rainy and cold. I spent the entire day hunting and stalking a big buck in my woods. I saw him but didnt get a shot. It was a cold and rainy day with intermittent rain and sleet.
    Sunday morning was clear and warmer. #3 son and I headed out to separate stands. #3 son agreed to sit in his brother's climber where he had taken "big ray" the previous day.
    By 8 am #3 texts me that he had killed a nice buck. He was 1/4 mile from the road and needed my ATV and wagon to haul out. I was a little disappointed because I was seeing deer in my location, and hated to leave. #3 is only 17yo and I wanted to congratulate him and help him get his buck out to the truck, so I climbed down and walked back to my ATV and headed to his location.
    While we were taking pictures and tagging his buck... 20191124_090750.jpg


    Mitch clearly said in a low monotone voice....DAD...THERES A BUCK...GET YOUR GUN...
    20191124_090136.jpg

    My H&R was leaning against a tree at arms length from Mitchell. Now Mitchell is only 17 but he is 6'5" and 275lbs. He reached over in one smooth motion, and grabbed my gun by the muzzle and swung the butt around to me. I took the gun and shouldered it and fired at the buck that was unwittingly on a collision course with us.
    My aim was true. After a short garden hose blood trail we found my buck nearby laying on the weeds as if he had been carefully posed for photos.
    Neither of our bucks are huge, but we had great fun and it was a beautiful day with time to take good care of out harvest. We dressed and processed both deer ourselves in our shop the same day. I will make one of my signature antler mounts as a keepsake and mancave decor.

    .and I said my aim was true
    .... 20191124_135818.jpg I apologize for all the pics...but we are a pretty happy family of hunters.
    Btw #1 sons wife took an 8pt of her own saturday while hunting with her father in Hancock county.
    Our freezers are full of venison!

    Wow! I would call that a success in no uncertain terms!
