    Can you just find another hunt to go on while your out there so we all can live vicariously through you?

    Sounds like a great hunt. Sometimes the best ones don't end with a picture of you holding a dead deer...safe travels back to Michigan!

    Speaking of voting have you heard from the trophy rock contest ? That picture is worth winning any trail cam contest

  10. OGB,

    That's why it's called "hunting" and not "killing."

    Thank you very much for taking all of us with you!!! And thanks for representing us so well also.

    I feel like I got to go on three hunting trips this year. This trip didn't cost me a penny (and Momma didn't get mad at me either :)), and I enjoyed the hell out of it. Thanx again!

    Good job my friend!

    I can't wait for the DVD.

    What a great adventure! Kudos for holding out. Had you shot early you would never have know what might have been. In the end you gave it everything you had. Much respect.

    After reading this, I wish I would of did a daily post while on stand in Sask. I had service almost everyday and thought about it. We did all day sets so my son told me to just down load movies on Netflix. Technology, years ago we never even had cell service in that area. Think about how much has changed for hunters with the new cell phones. I heard we have more computer power with our cell phone today than the first manned apollo launch to the moon had on the rocket.

  14. Great job and thanks for sharing. I for one am glad you held out. Patience is how you kill a giant. I think you made the right choice. If your hunting where there is a giant you can’t kill him if you fill your tag on an average buck for the area. You were in a well managed area and the proof was in the pictures. You had a great hunt, seen lots of deer and just having that feeling knowing a giant can step out is worth its weight in gold. I know because I experience it now every time I get on stand. Congrats on winning the hunt and having the opportunity. I’m sure you had a blast.

    Your absolutely right on all accounts. I passed some really good bucks waiting for the one I knew was there. Fortunately on the last day it all came together and I got my chance. A guy can't ask for anything more. I wouldn't change a thing. Great time and great people.....I will return!
