Old Man Still has it.

Well i've been hunting hard for about three weeks for a 140ish class 8-point at one of our spots. He goes out the first time since his heart cath (no blockage whatsoever ) 15 minutes before dark and bags this. Now honestly i might have passed him up, let him grow some. Though he is a nice size buck i'm just looking for that one to mount. Anyhow he shot him running guess i have to give him credit where credit due. Glad to see he got one.

That's a darn fine buck and a great story. Who did the dragging for him.........I would have played the "someone needs to gut and drag this for the heart patient card"

The hunter looks like he's happy, which is good enough for me.

Thanks guys it was good to see him happy he can't stand being cooped up and not being able to work.
