Best season of my life.

  1. This season has been absolutely wonderful for me. I am tagged out. I got to take my kids hunting for the first time in their lives. My oldest son, my father, and myself got to go hunting together and my boy killed his first deer ever. I killed the biggest buck of my life. I even got to go hunting with my wife. We don't get in the stand together very often. One of us is usually at home with the kids. This is the first year I have EVER tagged out. Its bitter sweat because I usually love hunting but I am done. Its time to switch to yote. But I realize something as I am typing this. My season was moving slow to say the least. Then I got with BDW and he sent me a "Maddie Grace" bracelet. Once I put that thing on my season changed drastically. Maybe its my good luck charm. But I was wearing it everytime I killed a deer. Well, I haven't taken it off but you get the point. Anyway, it was a great season for me. I got two does with one shot, two bucks, I am just happy. I just hope my wife can turn her season arround. She is having a ruff spell this year. Just throwing up some highlights from the season. And in the ones you can see my right wrist you will notice my "Maddie Grace" bracelet. God bless that girl, she is one heck of a strong fighter.

    even though the boys were so loud we didn't see a deer. It was most defenetly a great day for me.

    another great hunt with the wife. We didn't see one this day either. We were on our lease but hey we spent the afternoon together.

    My father and son with my boys first deer of his life. I still haven't figured out which one of us was the happiest. Great memory there.

    Biggest buck of my life. Sad story behind him but still happy I got him.

    My first bow kill on a yote. If you look closely you can see my "Maddie Grace" bracelet in this one. But I promise it was on for all the others as well.
