    My son RJ got lucky and drew a controlled hunt in our home state. He’s in the AF and goes to college full time so we hunted when he could get away. We saw ALOT of bucks each weekend but no biguns until we got some weather on the mountain. Well when this 5x5 showed up we agreed that he was a keeper. We stalked to 518 meters, Dialed the 500 meter dope in, compensated for the uphill angle, dialed 2.5 min of wind and sent it. The 180gr Accubond out of his 300 Winny did its job. He humped up, walked a bit and fell over. RJ showed great judgement passing on numerous bucks most hunters would have taken and has a nice wall hanger to show for it. Very proud Dad here.

    My ex wife was trying to get on a buck that size but just couldn't get a good shot on him . That was a couple of years ago. I didn't even get a tag that year, just stuck around the truck with the little ones while she did her hiking thing. I hope I am lucky enough to find a fella like that in my area, but I think you all got him already... congrats.
