Here is my son with his 4x4 Whitetail shot in South Dakota, on our last day of hunting. We hunted hard for 7 days, and the rut was in full swing. Earlier he missed a 5x5, but was able to recover nicely with this one.

Thanks guys, I'm very proud of him. Unfortunately I didn't see him pulled the trigger, but he used my Weatherby Fibermark in 257 Weatherby. :) He is already making plans for next year's hunt. :) I think I've created a monster.....LOL Love it when a plans comes together perfectly.

Gotta agree with tarbe ... the only thing nicer than an awesome harvest is an awesome smile shared between family and friends who are sharing our beloved pastime.

PS And DAMN! I hope to see one that nice when I go hunting this weekend,
