Minutes after posting the previous monster I got a text from buddy Grant Kuyers:
Mike, check this out! Bow kill, local fella. Think he's been watching him all summer. Heck of a buck killed not far from some of our Buck Paradise ground.
See why I go up there every year? That giant was killed mere miles from where I'll be hunting November 10. From the looks of this buck and the one below (and from the cam pictures I've been seeing) it's going to be a very good year. Last winter was mild.
Grant tells me he just had 2 last-minute spots open up at one of his camps, hunt dates Oct. 28-Nov. 3. If you're interested and could make it on short notice, shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll give you the scoop. comment
