30 years ago today I shot my very first deer. Nothing like starting off at the top. Made me the youngest member of the Missouri Big Bucks Club at that time. Scored 155 7/8 B&C. My how time flies. #whitetail#7mm#mobigbucks#booneandcrockett
Client of @NealAndBrownleeLLC with his beautiful free-range Desert Bighorn Sheep from the Sonoran Desert of northwestern Mexico. This was the client’s first journey to Sonora, and first North American wild Sheep.
As Robert Anderson described in his biography of Jack O’Connor, “Before he ever saw a desert sheep in the field, he instinctively knew that a big ram head was the trophy of trophies.”
Weighing as much as 30 pounds, the horns of a Desert Bighorn ram is truly breathtaking, and the beauty of the Sonora desert and people make the experience one of the greatest on Earth.
Congrats again to the client on a beautiful trophy, and for the trust.
We got to take one of our boys out to the stand last night, in hopes of getting his first buck. We walked away empty handed, but it was worth the quality time in the cold and the memories made. Hunting is about much more than just the kill.
My favorite hunting partner @sami.eberhard (no offense @bewensel )is in deer camp as of last night! It was raining this morning so we stayed dry by going into a pop up blind.
Our target buck (JimBobCooter) was on his feet in the rain though. We got him on the #cuddeback trail cameras about 60 yards NE of the stand that we wanted to be in and then we saw him dogging a doe about 80 yards South of us in the blind. He basically spent a couple hours this morning going about 270° around the stand we weren’t in. I got pretty good video of him that we will review later.
With the increased number of bucks that we are seeing trolling we have deployed the #flambeau decoys (Oswald and Daisy as named by Sami) and if everything goes as planned she should get some Top Pin action tonight. #bowhunting#bowhuntingwhitetails#archery#archeryhunting#bowtech#bowtecharchery#diamondarchery#booneandcrockett
