It was about fifteen minutes before sundown and they came right up to the sage blind I was hiding behind. The lead buck spooked at five yards, but the buck I took and another stopped at 45 yards to look back to see what had spooked the lead buck. The shot was a bit too far forward but luckily my G5 Striker did it's job and the buck only went maybe 15 yards before tipping over. It's a lot of fun hunting with my friends and sons and we've made some awesome memories hunting together.
    Great Story! Did he get to see the mount before he left? The anticipation of coming home was pretty intense, I am sure a deer like that would made it that much more exciting ... thanks for sharing.

    Sorry to those that have seen these before.....just trying to get some action on this thread so maybe we can see some more bucks. Maybe even Ryan will post some his toads.

    My best archery non-typical arrowed on the Kaibab in 2000. Hunted 17 days straight until it finally came together. He was hanging with a giant typical (185" class) but I really wanted a true non-typical. He's one of the biggest bodied deer I've ever taken. He's a 9x10 with really good mass. Only a 16.5" inside spread and grossed 203" and netted 197" net P&Y. Goes to show they really don't need to be wide to score well.




    Here's my best typical that I arrowed on the AZ Strip in 2008. Arrowed him 15 minutes into opening morning. I'd like to say it was all skill, but LUCK had a lot to do with it. Right place right time. He's a 31" wide buck that grossed 197" and netted 191 2/8" P&Y. Just a beautiful looking typical buck, IMO. Hope you enjoy.

    Thanks, but no he didn't get to see the mount before he left. I did make him some jerky, put it in foodsaver bags, and sent him some of the meat. Don't know if that was at all legal but he did get the package and enjoyed some the meat. When he got home, I think he was almost as excited to get his hands on the mount as he was to see his girl friend who had waited for him the two years.

    Doe Nob,
    Man, it's too bad you lost points for symmetry, he should have easily been in the 20's!

    Best of Luck,
    Jeff

    With limited time to archery hunt due to work I have to pick spots pretty close to home that I can hunt evenings after work or on the weekends. Found a bach group of bucks about a 10 min drive from my house and watched them for several day before the season, I was hoping to get one in velvet but had to leave town for a week during the opener and when I got back they had all shed there velvet. Anyways, I went out on a Saturday morning and watched about 6 bucks feed untill about 10am and then bedded them down in a bluffy area below a small cliff. I was able to sneak around and get above the deer for about a 15 yd shot, I didnt have a shot at the biggest one in the bunch but this one gave me a perfect shot so I took it and nailed him in the heart with a muzzy 100gr b-head, he ran 15yds and piled up. Not a huge buck but im proud of him and hope to get the big boy this year!
