Yes I did and I paid him a visit yesterday
My wife thinks I have him on a retainer like some have lawyers
He thought I would have it back by the first of the year
Lets just say I give him a lot of business
I asked him what he thought it would score---= 161 gross

[quote=Stormbringer;153923]Nice looking deer. Should make some good vension. How about some details on the hunt and shot?



I first saw him at about 80 yds coming up the bean field scent checking for a doe. Figured if he stayed on course he would either take the trail in front of my stand or stay on the edge of the bean field and duck into a good bedding area. I thought if he would have stayed in the beans out of range I would let him pass by and try to call him back with the wind more to my advantage

I left it up to him at that point and he decided plan A was best
He came down my well groomed trail---@ 15yds---and I double lunged him
Took off hit the bean field (sounded like a horse) and I heard him go down
Total tracking job 40 yds

Bow PSE D.S. EVO 6
