:D Actually had this guy 18 yds away from me the 2nd day of bear so we knew he was around. I hated to break tradition but....we put a 16 ft high ladderstand in place of the aluminum ladderstand so you could see over the mountian laurel better. The ol' aluminum stand was relocated just to the north on the next point at the back of the big hollow. We were putting a drive on through the hollow in the late afternoon as the deer weren't moving at all in the 60 degree heat. A doe broke cover and crossed through some oaks at the bottom of the point under the ol' alum. stand (which Eric was sitting in just up the ridge).After the doe got beyond Eric, Gary took 2 shots at and thought he might have connected so we hiked over to check for any signs of a hit. Eric came down to help out and after several minutes of us milling around, we heard sticks breaking above and to the left of the ravine. This buck was bedded in the laurel just below the "replacement stand" and apparently his nerves just couldn't take our gradual approach from below. He came busting aross the the upper part of the ravine, heading towards the pines & clearcuts. I yelled "Buck" and had the the rifle swinging ahead of him, desperately looking for an opening. It all happened so fast that it was really more of a natural reaction than anything preplanned. I swung ahead of him a jump to the one small opening I had, and as he came into the scope(my new Bushnell 3200 3x9) I took the shot. He piled up and I think my jaw hit the ground before he did. It was probably about 125 yd. shot, so I was really forunate to make it and one more jump would have had him safely away. The way we were positioned I was the only one of us who had any chance as Gary & Eric had trees & brush blocking a clear view. The picture doesn't do him justice as he's about the same size as the one Huck got last year. I taped him today, he's got an 17 & 1/2" inside spread and Eric can confirm his weight at around 200lbs. field dressed. Praising God for the entire 3 days at camp with the guys, for Eric's help dressing him out & dragging the buck down to the bottom, and for Gary & his wonderful ATV ! Now for 2 days of work, then off to the farm to hunt doe with Cuz Lee & stuff myself at Aunt Chubby's kitchen table.....geez, they're expecting some snow for the weekend :o

* sorry I looked so tired & grimey in the pic....but man, me getting to hunt for a couple days without any rain was really wearing me down! :wacko:

....oh, BTW Will, Woodhick was in the stand out beyond the pines were you sat in the peasoup fog last year and he had a cow elk calling close by. :o , thought he was dreaming until a bull started bugling back(5 times total). It was close enough he could hear the grunting noise at the end of each bugle. Seth could hear him also. They've been moving into the area as the gaslines provide em with good grazing and our camp is now considered to be in the elk range. What a rush for Woodhick as his son was along on his first deerhunt.

Congrats to Mr Phil. I will also have to add we hunted two days and were together for three and it Didn't RAIN that is in itself a record.

Eric the inside spread was much wider but you guys dragging and pulling so hard on the antlers pulled them together by a couple of inches.

As soon as my puter lets me upload my pics I'll post em here for youall to see.
If God had a refrigerator would your picture be on it.
