Glen & Todd's 2014 Hunting Trip

Wooldridge BLOG

Here's Glen's words about the hunt...

On the 5th day of hunting, Friday morning, I killed a small 4x4. After I boned it out, Todd found me and helped me pack it back to the truck. Back at the truck we heated up some lunch and sat in the cab and glassed while we ate. Todd spotted a couple of doe’s at 900 yards and then a nice buck came over the ridge. Todd was on the wrong side of the truck to use the spotting scope. When I got a look at this buck at 60 power, I said ”he is huge, lets go.” Todd said “no, we are not opening a door until he lies down or goes out of sight,” as all the deer we had seen were very skittish. When he and his doe’s went over the ridge, Todd and I started our stalk. It took two hours of sneaking behind ridges and crawling through the snow and changing directions several times due to our way being blocked by doe’s or smaller bucks. Todd’s shot was across a draw at 250 yards. The big buck ran straight down this steep hill and piled up in the bottom of a draw.

.

By the time he was boned out and in our packs, it was pitch black and -7°. Our GPS told us which direction the truck was and that our elevation was 450 feet below the truck. It took us 1 ½ hours to pack him back to the truck.

Congratulations Todd on a dream deer! Glen
