    Very inspiring story man. And Heck of a deer. Well deserved for sure, congratulations.

  • Appalachian's avatar

    Oh yeah, I didn't prop him up like that, that's how he died. I walked up on the log from behind and could see his tail under it then saw the tips of the tines. I came around the root ball full draw just in case he was still holding that head up

    @Appalachian oh yeah! Well looks like I'll be early rifling it solo lol. I'd say next time I get out I'll be carrying the smoke pole.

  • Appalachian's avatar

    @Adam I've got a spot found on the map that I believe will be a kill hole, it very isolated and landlocked by private except for one rough access point that should deter the sane people 😉 pretty confident you'd have it to yourself. I can send info if you're interested.
