Well here he is, the buck I call "Smokey" that I was blessed to tag yesterday evening. This buck is one that I have had my eye on since he was 2 1/2 years old. Many thought that I was crazy for passing him last year when he was a solid 180-class buck. I rolled the dice hoping that he would put on another antler growth-spurt and that's exactly what he did.
One of the best things about this buck and the hunt for him was the great people that I got to share it with. I was especially happy that my dad was able to be there for the recovery just as he was when I shot my very first buck back in 1979.
I have not yet scored Smokeys rack and in fact we are having a contest to see who can come the closest to the actual score. To enter go to the Real World Wildlife Products facebook page.
Thanks to everyone for the texts, emails, phone calls and personal visits to congratulate me. The best thing about deer hunting is the many great people it has allowed me to cross paths with. God Bless and I hope everyone has a great hunting season.
