You know the kid all too well, he's had me help with a couple hell holes down here now we are neighbors but surprisingly yesterday when I offered up the wheeler and jet sled right in the back of the truck he was as quiet as a church mouse, not sure why he wouldn't want me to know of that spot......Hey WW , I have no doubt about everything you said is true about Matt . But why do I get the feeling you left something out in that " BIG BUCK DOWN " text .
Something like " BIG BUCK DOWN ! Grab the Jet Sled and come help me drag him out "
What bullet did you use in your creed?I got home from work Friday night. Saturday morning and Monday were spent surveying the current situation. I found a couple spots had less deer than I hoped but one in particular had a lot of sign. Monday morning I had what looked like a small buck chase a doe past me just after first light. I didn’t get a good look but body wise he wasn’t much bigger than the doe. I also missed a large buck by a couple hours on Monday as he came cruising through between 10-11am. After seeing that I made the choice to do an all day sit, something I’ve never done. I packed a lunch and headed in. I decided I would do some rattling at around 7am and after my second sequence I heard a deer headed my way at a decent pace. He again like during bow season stuck in the alders but I could make him out well enough to know it was the big 6. He was stomping and grunting looking for those “bucks” but just wouldn’t come out of the alders. After side skirting me for about 50 yards I knew my options were limited. I found a tiny hole and 1 well placed shot did the trick. I’m very lucky and privileged to be able to chase these deer. It’s a big game of cat and mouse and is always a good feeling on that rare occasion when it all comes together. He’s my biggest to date. 6pt 201lbs

I shoot 120 grain Browning BXS’s. Personally I’m a big copper fan. Here is the bullet I recovered out of the deer after passing through both shoulders. 90% weight retention (missing a couple petals)What bullet did you use in your creed?

So, you found the bullet under the hide on the far side? How far did the deer run?
