Nice going Joe. You have got to be running out of freezer space.

The freezer is pretty much at capacity! But I have plenty of friends that enjoy the fruits of the hunt as well and have given away and shared quite a bit of meat this year.

Tim, for most of the hunt, including the turkey, I carried my RER Vital 3 piece takedown recurve which is 55# at my draw. Prior to the last day I was shooting my Bear Green stripe takedown in Jim's shop. It has a set of Rose Oak limbs that are 47# at my draw and although a bit slower I was grouping the arrows really well with it. I carried that bow the last two days of my hunt and used it on the buck.

My arrows are Gold Tip blems with a 100 grain brass insert and one of Bill Dunn's Grizzly Instinct heads up front. That gives me a total of about 325 grains up front and they really tear things up. I've had some hits that were marginal at best on game this year and I am a believer that those heads made all the difference in the recoverys. This buck was another example of that.

Outstanding Joe, thanks for taking us along on another one of your adventures. I had a feeling there was going to be a buck at the end of this one, "Old Frosty Antlers". Very nice buck my friend. Looking forward to the AZ story in a few weeks, so take lots of pictures.

Good stuff, Joe. Many congrats on the buck. You are hell in the bottom of the 9'th....always have been.

That was a fun read for me as I've had a couple of similar hunts in that country. I went up there waterfowling a couple of times and saw so many deer I decided to start going back to bow hunt. Really cool to see good deer but as you mentioned, getting them in the right spot for a shot was always my nemesis.

Take care.

That is excellent. Way to go. It looks cold but beautiful there. The Dakotas have always interested me as a place to hunt whitetails. I think this story will cause me to seek out a destination there.
