Thanks. I was a lot of fun. I saw a lot of bucks, but I finally found the one I wanted. I did see two other bucks that were wider. The widest kept hanging around private property and everytime he seen us coming then he would cross under the fence and just stare and look at us. He knew he was safe I guess. The closest I got to him on the legal side of the fence was like 600 yds. I should have shot and aimed a little high (just kiddin) :lol: :lol:.

I found the one I got in the middle of two little hills, and he had one doe with him. I got the antelope fever and wow he looked great so I tried to remain calm and I shot him at 200 yds and he dropped right in his tracks. Hes a great buck with a lot of mass. The left side is 15 inches and the right side is 14 3/4. He has great mass and very nice cutters. Hes got great width as you can see

Pro, I have no bow hunting skills haha. How will it make archery hunters feel when I post a pic of a monster buck I got from my wheelchair. Would this make me more of a hunter because not only did i do it with a bow, but also from a wheelchair?

You got that right Pro...It was the first animal he has killed in 41 years and the first time he has hunted in 24 years...I know he was overjoyed to have the experience and I'm pretty postive it will be the last time I will be able to share a hunt with him...Thanks again Justin for the hard work and heads up on this.
