My dad got a BIG 8 point buck (with a pic)
My dad got a monster 8 point with a Husqvarna .30-06 on Saturday, which was the last day of Deer season here in PA. I was just 35 yards away from him when he first shot at this buck, and I almost fell over when he fired. This is my dads biggest buck he has ever shot, and to make it even better, he shot it with his grandfather's rifle! His grandfather gave him that Husky .30-06 which he has now killed, 3 deer and a Cow Moose with it. Here is the pic of me and my dad with the Buck:
I almost got a Buck on Saturday also, here is what happened. I decided, right before dark to get up and walk around a little. So I was walking and I look and I see a doe, so I stop and look to see if there was a Buck around ( I already got a Doe this year so I didn't have a Doe tag ). And sure enough there was, another big buck! I couldn't believe my eyes. So, I brought the gun up, turned the 3X-9X scope to 6 X, took a deep breath too steady my nerves, and just as I was about too fire..... Somebody starts coming out of the woods! That buck took off like a rocket and all I saw as it was running away was this rack. I had a very steady hold and I felt like there was nothing that could stop me from bagging this buck, well turns out I was wrong.... Oh well, I still have muzzleloader season coming up.
2 people who know how to score White-tails say it is probably going to at least score 130 B&C. We haven't had it officially scored yet, but we soon will and I'll post what it scores.

Congratulations to you and your dad! Great story and that's what hunting is all about.... Those memories with your dad and close friends! Nobody can ever take it away from you!
Thanks all. I have been on many hunts with my dad and I enjoyed all of them. I have hunted Pronghorn in South Dakota, 2 Moose in Vermont, and 1 Moose in New Hampshire. And that is just the out of state stuff, I have plenty of memories from here in P.A. He started taking me out hunting at age 4 and because of that I LOVE hunting. A bad day in the woods beats a good day doing school work.....
P.S The buck scored 120 B&C.

Christian,,, Congratulations for both of you for a very nice deer,,,, Treasure the moments afield with your dad, there is nothing like it as you well know.
Ortega y Gasset Spanish philosopher said "We do not hunt to kill, we kill to have hunted" I am sure that the one that got away is the one that really will have you coming back to the field, even more than the nice eigth pointer bagged....enjoy the chase!!!!NEW SCI CHAPTER MONTERREY MEXICO
