Go get him Otis!! I never even got out yet. Flooded swamps and a bad cough kept me home. Hope to get out and do some late season hunting. Nothing better than to see them in the snow. Much fun ahead hopefully.

Yup sounds about right. In Kansas first day walking in I bumped the first true 200 plus deer I have ever seen bedded with a doe 75 yards from my stand. As he turned and ran I saw a long drop tine as well !! I passed several 140-150 class deer waiting for a chance at him and now have tag soup ! :eusa-violin:
