Hello Good People!

It was opening day evening hunt. We were set up on one of my favorite cuts waiting for the elk to feed out. We had been set up for about an hour when i caught something flicker in the timber. I pulled up the binos and to my surprise it was the buck i had been scouting preseason. The conditions were perfect had the wind and as most of you can remember we had a slight rain that day. I knew i had a good chance at making this stalk. To make the semi short story shorter I riped my Bowtech comander out of the bow sling knocked up my full metal jacket with muzzy 4 blade ready to shread, and got on my way. I closed the distance to 30 yards as he feed on a fern patch. Thunk! double lung pass through. The buck ran 30 yards and was dead within a minute of the shot. Those muzzy 4 blades are bad! Here's some pics!

set up and waiting

Not a bad coastal blacktail!

Good Luck Hunting! We got some rain coming next week!:clap:

Congrats on the nice buck.
The first set of photos are without a flash seem to be letterboxxed like they are 16x9. Are those frame grabs from the Canon XH-A1 you own???

That is a great looking blacktail. I hope to one day get a buck in the velvet. Looks like all that scouting paid off. I can't wait to see how you do next year.

Good job on a great looking blacktail! If he was taken in the Saddle Mt. Unit, he's better than great.:cheers:
Thanks all for the kind words!

Yes mr OR Coast Range it was takin in the saddle mountain unit. These North West coastal blacktails are a lot different then the ones you see down south. I mean a 4x4 around these parts are very hard to come by. I'm sure you know. This is one of the nicest if not the nicest blacktail i have seen in the saddle mountain unit alive. You can't really compare these bucks around here to the ones down south as far as size goes. I know they are both hard as hell to get close to. God blessed me and gave me perfect conditions to harvest this one!
