Our season this year was going to focus on Whitetail as in the past we have done both whitetail and Adventure hunts. We started the year in Edmonton for Whitetail and had a great hunt; taking a big mature velvet 8 point. The buck scores a little under 160 and weighed over 300 pounds – the largest bodied whitetail I have ever taken. From Canada we went to Illinois and saw a ton of young bucks but just never could get on something mature that we really wanted to take.
After really hard hunting in Illinois we headed to our lease in Kansas and our luck changed on the first evening hunt. I took the “Mule Deer” buck we set our season on the very first afternoon in the ground blind in 30 mile an hour winds. This was a drama filled hunt as I hit him way back and thought he was gone. We finished the season off on our lease in Texas where I shot a really nice 5 1⁄2 year old 10 point with a split G3….the rut action in Texas was insane this year and my son was able to take a really nice buck as well. Can’t wait for the 2016 season!
