Re: 156\" buck @ 609 yards.
Coyboy, your story really grabbed me. I lived in Wisconsin for 45 years from the time I was 5 years old. My dad took me hunting from the time I was 12 until he couldn't hunt anymore due to Alzheimers. I remember the last year he hunted and I let a 6 pt buck pass because it was headed straight for where my dad was posted. He never saw the buck, probably because he had nodded off for a short nap. I've never forgotten how he took me up to where he hunted when I was about 10 or any of the hunting seasons we hunted together. For those of you out there who can still hunt with your fathers, treasure these hunts because soon all you will have are the memories.
Make the first shot count because more often than not the second one won't!
