What a crazy hunting year! After eating tag soup in New Mexico I got back to Texas and started whitetail hunting. I hate to admit it but I missed a very easy shot on a monster 9 point with my 35 whelen. He was out there a ways and right when I was about to shoot he took off and ran right to me after a doe. As soon as he turned broadside I threw the crosshairs right back to the top of his shoulder and touched it off--right over the top! After that I started carding my good old 30/06. A few weeks later this one came out during the second rut. Not a long shot which is fine with me. He still needed a couple of more years to grow but I am happy with him! 30/06,165 gameking,240 yards,front facing chest shot. Totally disconnected everything above his heart. Made 5 steps. But the biggest blessing this year was the eye doctor giving me the.all clear to shoot whatever I wanted as much as I wanted!

Thanks! The eyes was the best part of the year! Started building the whelen right after I got the ok!-- You should have seen the 9 point!
