Deer Season, November 27, 2012

After returning from Suzanne’s ranch, aptly named “The Dirty Boot Ranch” and spending Thanksgiving, along with a couple of a couple of days hunting with Wesley, we saw several doe, but no bucks. Checking the answering machine I saw Mickey Donahoo had called, calling with the Boone & Crockett scoring on my big buck.

Calling Mickey, I got the full story from him.  The buck, classified as a “Typical”, scored 142.5, but if both G-4’s hadn’t both been broken off, Mickey thought the buck would have scored over 150.  Two other points are broken off, but had little impact on the scoring.  The age is still unknown, but my guess of 4-1/2 or 5-1/2 is close.

Here’s the “best” picture from Steve Bridges, the owner of the local newspaper, “[The Goldthwaite Eagle]” and click on it to see a very successful, local newspaper!
