    Incredible story and Incredible buck! Also, you spoke like a true Minnesotan "it wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the wind".

    Fantastic write up! I always love a good story about the hunt. We all make mistakes and have mishaps. You found ways over come the errors and that’s what matters! Congrats on the trophy buck, he’s a stud!

    Not sure which was better...the ability to articulate the experience or the buck himself!? Very well done on both! Lol and ever mistake or petpieve you list, I have or make seasonally lol...good stuff!
