The guy in the pictures is 3'7" tall. 

Kidding, he's about 5'10".  The deer was down and done kicking in under 5 minutes from what he told me.

Black Granite Road?  Custer Limestone Road?  I used to do my blackpowder deer camp in that area late December, early January.  They done boatloads of thinning in the area, you wouldn't recognize most of it.   Over towards the Jasper Burn they are starting to really see great muleys nowadays.

Very nice.  I hate how Osage turns brown after a while in the sun.  I have found that poly with UV blocker tends to help.  Ive got a few Osage bows that held its yellow prety good with UV blocking poly.

Sleek, go out in woods, unzip, and start taking a leak. Then midstream take off running and let me know how it goes  >:D . Full draw would be easy.  >:D Once you start going, you cant stop :o. Poor deer never had a chance.

Wow! I'd feel blessed even to have a close encounter with a buck like that. But to actually take him with trad gear. What a great accomplishment!

Ok, so a year before his buddy had the archery tag. Barry saw this very same buck in the guy's front yard gnoshing on the windfalls under the ornamental crab-apple tree.  He sends the guy to the backyard and says, get ready and I'll herd him around to you.  Rich sets up the ambush and Ol' Barry heads around the house to chivvy this deer into the backyard where the "killin' floor" is all set up.  When the buck saw Barry coming he lowered his horns and chased him around the house.



Yup, they grow nice bucks in the neighborhood.
