    Just adding another pic to the APS photobook.
    I took this buck the last week of our WV rifle seaon. Took him @789 yards. It seemed like it took two weeks to get him out. .... am I still dragging? I think I will find differnt place to hunt. Or make friends with some that owns a helicopter

    Well, then, maybe you'd be kind enough to show one of us where that awful hunting spot is? gun)

    A place where you can shoot a whitetail like that at 789yds....I wouldnt give it up. I here ya on the chopper idea tho,I hunt the breaks of the Snake River in Oregon where EVERY pack is a big chore.But since my pockets arent as deep as the canyons I hunt Ill have to do it the old fashioned way. Congrats! Nice buck.

    Vintec, besides, you're healthy and young enough to be doing this many times a year for a long time. :D

    Now, an old guy like me would be looking for healthy and strong people like you to help fetch them out! :D

    Awsome shot and great buck!

    I'd help you drag out a lot of bucks if you showed me a spot where i can shoot deer like that at 700yards!

    Len,
    Not quite ready to abondon the loction yet. I d be happy to bring you along. Cant promiss a good buck.

    Eaglet,
    I may be looking you up to help me drag one out in NV. I have buddy that moved to Elko a few years ago wants me to come out there after mulies. Do you know anyone with a helicopter??? LOL

    Chas1
    If you would have asked me when we got him back to the truck I would have said 2-3 tons maybe more. LOL
    I didnt wiegh him but I belive he dressed 150-165lbs. It was one of the biggest I have killed in few years. Deer of this size are very rare in WV. I did get lucky a few years ago and take 168" buck with a bow that dressed 203lbs. It wasnt as bad of a drag. I could get a winch line to him.

    Although a few years ago, at 203 pounds dressed I'll bet your still eating on that one.:) That is truly respectable in your neck of the woods or anywhere in the NE. and with a bow. Neat.
