    2nd Colorado Muke Deer

    I killed this buck on Oct 26, 2013 during second rifle season. I hunted hard for 5 days and found over 15 different bucks but nothing I wanted to shoot. On my last morning I decided to go to a spot where I had seen a few does the night before to see if I could spot a shooter buck. I was making my way up the mountain when I bumped a few does so I decided to spend the next few hours glassing the area. As luck would have it I spotted this guy running a doe down the mountain right on the trail I came in on. I grabbed my pack and started down the mountain after him. After about 15 minutes of down hill jogging I finally spotted him standing in a open park with a doe. I quickly ranged him at 185 yards and decided to take a prone shot. Once I got settled I found him in my scope and took the shot. He ran 50 yards before he went down. I feel very blessed to have killed two nice bucks back to back in the same area. I love hunting and can't wait to pass this awesome sport down to my children. Click image for larger version.

    Great buck for sure! I'm glad I'm not the only one that literally chases after deer from time to time!
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    It's a great spot but tough to hike into. One of those spots that I won't be able to get to when I'm an old man if you know what I mean. Here is my buck I took last year in the same spot.Click image for larger version.
