Ken with the buck...Ken picked this deer up over his shoulder and walked across a knee deep creek.Then came back for me.Bad part was I was already wet from wading across to get the buck

Nice memories for you and your group in your pictures.

picked this deer up over his shoulder

Ah...memories. My own first deer was shot when I was in good shape as a high school wrestler. I hunted alone and shot a yearling buck back in the woods. Growing tired of dragging it, I picked it up over my shoulders and carried it about a half mile out of the woods! Of course, now, when I tell the story to my kids, the distance was 5 miles, up hill!

You have memories that will stick with you forever.

When I first came to this area (1962) here in Cameron County, six of us stayed in a converted "Chicken Coop".
It had one light bulb, two bunk beds and one 3/4 bed. Not much room to move around at all.

We killed a lot of game out of that little camp and worked hard in those days to drive deer to watchers. It was an all day hunt of climbing these steep sidehills to begin the drives.
I still remember each of those seasons.

I remember those days of carrying the deer over the shoulder to. Did it many times when I was younger.

Good hunting to all

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
