Awesome job Jake! I am hoping my son can get his buck on the general opener next weekend. Hoping a nice, tender SPIKE walks out so he can whack him and not break both our backs hauling him out. 🙂 I am encouraged by your reports as we both hunt the same general area.
We really need to hunt together more, so I can teach you how to quarter or gutless those things!! I can't imagine trying to haul a gutted deer through the oak brush jungle...that just seems like cruel and unusual punishment!! Glad you got it done with her though. That is quality father / daughter time that will pay back in spades as she gets older!!
Let me know when you start hitting the late season cow tags.
Just remember...it's hunting NOT killing. Big difference!
