    My husband got a antelope in WY too, I wish he would get a deer or even a turkey. Keeps trying but so far no luck.

    Isn't this the man that shot TWO big gobblers in ONE shot down in SC?

    LOL....as soon as I hit post I remembered that! We just ended our turkey season here and didn't even see any. But yes if it wasn't for NWTF he would be throwing the towel in too.

    Had I even saw him, he would of been down. Guess a neighbor 3/4 mile away had him at 30 yards with a bow, but he was behind to much brush. I think he went nocturnal as all the pics we got of him in the fall were at like 1-2am for every pic, even during rut.

    They don't get that big by being dumb. About the only chance at these big boys is when they're girl crazy during the rut. At least you're in an area where the really big deer exist.

    Shot a nice buck with a compound bow in 2000. Was standing in a hole behind an old fallen tree and had watched him pass by for two previous evenings out of range. Tried to pull him up in the garage with a simple pulley and when I stopped struggling, he lifted me off the ground when the boy hit the floor. Hurt my hands. I was close to 215 at the time and I had gutted him over the hill from the school before pulling it downhill to the truck. Could not lift it onto the tailgate but luckily found old sheet of plywood by a hunting camp. Got boo-coo ground meat and many pounds of summer sausage which I gave away because there was too much for us to eat. Cost me almost $100 at Sluggo's Market to have everything done.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.

We got a couple great shots of the bird making his final strut around my DSD jake decoy just seconds before I sent him to gobbler heaven. Couldn't haave asked for a better hunt. Thanks for looking guys/gals.
    What type of gun mount is this?
