My first buck!

My first buck! I was really lucky to draw a late buck tag for unit 48 in 2011. The bucks were rutting hard and the conditions were perfect. Using the natural contour of the land I was able to stay out of sight and out of the wind to sneak up to 25 yards. He was with 12-13 does and two other bucks. This was the most exciting hunt of my life! Thanks Fish and Game for preserving our wildlife so that hunters like me can enjoy the great state of Idaho!
