Well I rarely get to hunt myself but last week thanks to some fellow AH’rs who were hunting bison, pigs, and does with me I got to pull the trigger a couple times. I was very pleased to finally get to recover this whitetail. I had an encounter with him during bow season which culminated in a bad shot on my part and a lost deer. Well I’ll be damned if he didn’t show back up and I finally got to finish what I started.

Well I had just finished skinning this deer and clients were settled into hog blinds down on the creek when Bruce came and got me. He told me he saw a really nice management mule deer so we went and took a look. Sure enough up on top on one of my wheat fields was this guy! 2 deer down in about an hour and a half. I couldn’t believe my luck. Clients took 3 feral pigs at the same time all this was going on too.

A couple of fine deer for sure! I would have been dancing in the street to have taken either of those!
Did I miss your report on your fishing trip?

Glad to see you were able to get some time behind the trigger. Great Muleys - kind of like everything else you have on the ranch.

Two beauties there...I wouldn’t consider that mulie a management buck either! There has been several seasons that I’ve shot both a whitetail and a mulie, but never on the same day! Congrats!

I suppose you didn’t use your 9.3x74 Double? That would have been too much fun!

lol, that would have been awesome! No I took the whitetail with the clients rifle as I didn’t have a rifle with me at that moment and the mulie I shot with my trusty 06.

You mind saying where in the Panhandle?
I was raised in the Panhandle and never saw deer like yours.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
