West Texas Hunting 2012

Post by 81police » Sun Nov 25, 2012 7:23 pm

My father and I had some success out west this past week. He shot 7 or 8 hogs (I lost count), I shot one, and I was VERY fortunate to take this 8 point with my BAR. I call him the Lord's buck. God taught me a lot about patience and what hunting is really all about through this deer. He was shot late evening and crossed the neighbor's fence 15 yards away. We waited until dawn to look for him, I couldn't sleep. After tracking 100 yards the blood trail ended. No buck in sight. I decided to check a dry creek bed for any blood sign, and down one of the fingers saw a coyote's butt moving back and forth on a carcass. In less than 12hrs coyotes had devoured everything except the head, hide, and skeletal system. God reminded me the hunt's not about the buck, it's about enjoying time with my father and appreciating God's wondrous creation!

No worries on packing him - clever on your part. (And, leaves more room for turkey in the freezer. ;)) Bet you had a good time with your Dad though - especially with him picking on you over the deer and HIS number of hogs! :P

Congrats on your successful hunt,Cam.I'm sorry about your buck,and I understand exactly because a similar thing happened to me a few yrs. ago. We lost my buck,an 11 pointer, then found him the next morning and the coyotes had killed him @ripped his throat out ,plus chewed his nose off ,ruining the mount possibility. But we saved his rack and I have it mounted on a board with an old Auto 5 ad. and some gun racks. I'm surely glad you were able to spend the hunting time with your Dad. I have 3 adult sons and cherish any time I get to spend with them now.
Thanks for your time,
Roger
