Randy,
Very nice buck and excellent shooting. The pictures and story were great. You and your brothers will enjoy the hunt for a very long time. Thanks for sharing.

Yup... I've hunted some of those parts - mostly elk. I try to be pretty careful. A great day can turn on you faster than you can snap your fingers. Gotta spend some time finding a good deer spot. Seems every time I find a decent area, a fire the size of a small state goes through and I'm start'in all over. No shortage of places to look though.

Thanks for sharing a fun hunt. That's some kinda blue sky.

Mike 338, dont give up on the burned areas, give them about 5 years and they are wildlife magnets!
Randy,
