    With a little bit of work my buddy got his first buck. We back packed in last Friday about 4 miles in the dark and set up camp. Got up the next morning and walked about 200 yards to the glassing spot.

    After about 5 minutes I found a buck way up high, about a mile away. We bedded him down and made our way up the mountain, around a 2,000 foot elevation gain.

    We got onto a rock perched above where the bedded buck was, we waited around 4 hours for the buck move beds. He finally came out of the thick brush he was in and my buddy put him in the dirt.
    Congrats Matt on an awesome buck, and a hunt to remember. c46f6ca19f34d8e3dbfb7363e2831ad0.jpg 526294526804a73642789653c318247f.jpg

    Talk about a clinic in how to hunt mulies! That’s a beauty. Matt’s fortunate to have you guiding him. Awesome work.
