First we went to dinner with mom, my brother and his wife. Then my wife gave me a brand new Leupold Rifleman 3x9 scope. That was Monday evening the 14th. Not quite my birthday which is the 15th. I told my brother I would be unavailable to work as I was going out to open the bow season here on my birthday. I have had so many injuries I have been unable to even shoot one practice arrow. I figured, just get closer and if something came by, surely I could pull my bow one time. I went out at 3:00pm to hang a stand and stay for the evening hunt. I had been out to watch the field near where I hunt on Sat. and knew this guy and others were in the area. He came in at 7:26 at about 6 yards and turned sideways. Could not ask for better. Ran about 80 yards. He is my 100th bow kill and on my birthday no less. He about killed us getting him out though. I am 5'8" and weigh 200#. He was bigger than me by a bunch. Should of bought a lottery ticket that day. Rick

That is one eatin'-size buck. How's he taste?
"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." (Ronald Reagan)

Cheers to you for your hunting success and for marrying a woman with the good sense to gift you with a Leupold scope.
Some profess that they "aim to please". On the contrary, it pleases me to aim.
Happy Birthday indeed !!!!! Congrats on that fine buck.
An old saying is "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." I believe in a head for an eye and a hand for a tooth. Keeps folks away from my eyes and teeth.
Excellent buck!! What a great present on top of a good scope! Happy belated B-day! 444
Happy birthday Rick you could not ask for a better gift! Nice deer...that's a wall hanger for sure!
