Well I finally made it out to east tx near Tyler with a buddy to hunt on his ranch. Managed to get a 3 pt and coyote in one sit last Sunday night. I was able to make a running shot on the coyote and dropped her. That made me pretty happy and then I shot the 3 pt an hr or so later for the freezer because I was worried I wasn't going to see something better as it was my second to last sit of the trip. Then the last morning, while I was watching a spike in front of me, I hear a grunt and out of the thicket walks this 10 pt. I grunted to stop him and shot him at 60 yds. He ran about 40 yds and I was able to see him crash. It was probably the most exciting hunt of my life so far. It was my biggest buck by far as my previous best was only a 4 pt. Everything was shot with my baby, a Winchester M70 .270. The buck scored 99 2/8...I was hoping for 100+ but I'm happy with him and he's getting a shoulder mount none the less. Hope you guys enjoy the pics!

Yeah I agree. To me it looked like he damaged that G2 while in velvet and then it hardened. It looked bent rather than just that it had grown like that naturally. Oh well. I do like the character too though. Thinking of calling him "Hook" haha

You would have hit 100 if that G2 have been symmetrical. None the less I like those abnormal antler growths. Too cool

Yeah I'll post pics as soon as I get it back. I should have it back a week or 2 before Christmas believe it or not. I guess it's the perk of killing one fairly early in the season. I took it to Kevin Glover up in Milton after stopping by and being very impressed with his work. Thanks again guys for the congrats!
