After getting the news that the big 3x I was after during archery season was killed last Thursday by another hunter (turned out to be a 3x4 green score at 127 5/8"), I decided to tag out on this nice 3x3. I hesitated to shoot him as I knew he wasn't a contest winner but he sported a pair of 3" eye guards (rare for my spot) and an 18.5" outside spread that I really admired.

It was a fun spot and stalk hunt. With the east wind I was able to stalk to within 38 yards. Should have brought my bow.

I was relieved after seeing the pictures of Jeff's buck posted this morning that there was no way any of the bucks I've seen this season were going to top his deer. Like Lungpopper...I hate tag soup.

I am really enjoying the contest aspect of hunting this season and I look forward to kicking all of your asses in the second half of the A22 season.

Thanks Michael. I'm happy with him.

Hopefully the east wind is dying down in time for your hunt. Good luck and be safe! I'm sure there's a 150+ class buck out there for you somewhere to show everybody up.

Great 3x3 T.A. And 38 yards........ Awesome ! I would take that guy first light on opening day if I had the chance.

And you're still in the game with the second half of A22.

Its a .270 Win. Browning A Bolt, my favorite cartridge & my favorite rifle (one of the few manufacturer's that isn't biased against lefties.)

In my opinion it is the best do-it-all North American cartridge. You can hunt Alaska on down. Great rig Darryl.
