This season started out with my hunting buddy killing this buck as soon as we got in the stands on opening morning. We were only hunting 40 yards apart, and this buck came in before I had a chance to get an arrow nocked. He came past me and Todd put one thru him. I was lucky enough to get drawn for a spike bull elk tag, and was able to connect on my birthday with this bull. On 11-8 Todd and I were hunting the same 8 acre farm he got his buck @ 9:15 this big boy walked within 40 yards of us and I put one thru both his lings and watched him run 40 yards and go down. Now hopefully my wife can connect this weekend. Then it's doe patrol time. Good luck to all and be SAFE out there !!!!!
