Ben, in, you guys hunted hard, saw buck action that most of us will never see, and you and Dallas just spent 2 weeks living your dreams. I know how much this trip out west means to you every year, and in the end, just having the opportunity to chase your dreams is more important than actually killing the "biggun." I am glad you were able to bag a great buck on the way out, that will look real good on your wall! Are you going to get him weighed?When I got up to him ....where was the 9th point? Its in this moment as a hunter when you realize what's meant to be...that's what it is.
It has been an awesome hunt this year...the coldest weather I have ever seen in the Midwest. Now its time to go home, regroup and finish out the Maine season.
The hardest part is finding good ground. I have buddy that has not even seen a 3yr old. This is a piece of ground that I found in 2009...and it has been awesome. If ehd had not hit in 2012...the age class of the deer would be much better....I agree with everyone else, Thanks for taking the time to do this Ben. I, for one, appreciate having a glimpse of what it is in the midwest. Someday I would love to get out there and experience this. Just all that chasing, and see that many bucks in one week would be awesome.
