I need to hunt closer to the truck. 3.5 hours haul to the truck. I rattled the antlers and he came in slow looking with in a few seconds 15 yard shot.

2dog my time is close. Getting a mature buck up a steep hill is hard work. If I would of had a game bag I would have quarter him up. I used all my game bags in Wyoming this year.

I know where several good bucks are in the deep hollers of the Ozarks. The idea of getting one out of there even quartered is just not to appealing. The last few years have really taken a toll on my knees. Sitting here right now with ice on one of them. :no:

Wait till you guys get like me and have to hunt a day then take off 2 days. Then if you kill a deer, by the time you get it out of the woods and taken care of you have to take 3 days off from huntin'... :smack: Never imagined anything like that would ever happen to me because I was always ready and primed to go at the drop of a hat and I just assumed I'd hunt or fish any ole time I wanted to for as long as I was around. Even major back and heart surgeries never kept me down for very long. But I'm fast discoverin' there's no beatin' Father Time no matter how bad a man wants to..... :sob:
