Title: What a start to the New Year!
Post by: Flatstick on January 02, 2016, 08:42:00 PM
2016 has started out great!
Although I had plenty of trail camera pics of this buck, I hadn't laid eyes on him since the first week of November. Then on Christmas Eve & Christmas day both evenings I seen him again during daylight. Finally this morning at about 9:45am I was in the right tree at the right time.
A Dwyer Endeavor and Wensel Woodsman did their job to both lungs of the buck I named Sticker Back because of both back tines sporting stickers.
Hope this is a sign of the rest of 2016!

For me its rare to see the same mature deer twice. Having seen and known this deer before, im super happy you put it all together when the time was right. Way to hang tough. Congrats on a great buck!
