Every year in September I plan a trip out west to hunt elk, mule deer or antelope. This year I am headed to eastern Montana with fellow Posse member David Wozniak to hunt those river bottom whitetails.. We are hunting with Powder river outfitters and let me tell you they have the animals!!! It didn't take long for me to fall in love with the Cottonwood lined river bottoms that funneled those bucks out to the lush alfalfa fields..
On the 4th Morning of our hunt our guide Adam put us in a typical bottleneck that he had been seeing some nice bucks use as they left the alfalfa and headed back to bed. On this morning David and I had a long walk and ended up on stand a few minutes late. While getting set up the first deer started leaving the alfalfas. Here comes two bucks right down the trail headed to our stand.. The second buck is in full velvet and I have my sights set on him.. Both deer pass by about 27 yds and with the go ahead from David I sent an arrow to its mark.. After all the high fives and adrenaline rushes we have a short walk to our buck..
What a way to start off 2011! Thank you David for sharing that hunt with me and Thank you Archers Choice for making dreams come true.
