Default My son and I got a deer

Bryce and I went out deer hunting here close to town . We hunted in heavy hunter pressure areas.
We had no clue this guy was in area had seen a few smaller bucks.
We spotted him from a thousand or better and decided to work our way around and come down on top of him. Part my brain going into hint only mode as we head up ridge to climb around on him. We coverd some ground in hurry.
Long story short we found him. Broadside on Ridge line a rock right next to us made a perfect prone rest he was 300ish . Took the first 115vld in vitals he hunched up then ran and stood again he was very sick I told bryce we got him but I'm going to shoot again. This time with my son beside me the 2506 barked drawing attention from camps below as well finishing this deer.
I'll back track a little normally I wouldn't have my 6 year old son hiked down in nasty hole as the sunshooting falling fast with no for sure way to get the buck out. This deer fits in the well figure it out later category because we're getting him.

There's a camp on other side of river below us. I glass down to them campfire going talking going on and I see 5 guys binos pointed our way. We just killed a monster deer within line of site of there camp.
Ok here come the pictures

Of course we snagged some pictures before the light faded


This deer got bigger the closer we got. Normally it's the other way
Bryce was stocked so was I to have him with me

Yes we did a few self-esteem even propped the phone up for one




We got our photos tagged and gutted him . I'd made the decision to get bryce out and come back after dark. I know area well. I'd come up from River bring the buck down to River cross the river with deer then load him in truck.
What I didn't realize was how hard crossing River would be and 2 the climb from River 2 buck would be much farther than it appeared

We've left the deer and headed out. Buck is basically 6 or 800 yds below us. Was one he'll of climb . Bryce did amazing

Got bryce home to bed and headed back. Battled the river in pitch black climbed what seemed like a never ending mtn. My friend with kept asking are you sure the bucks here. Things looking alot difrent in flashlight view as I confidently answer yes and keep climbing.
Just as I start to doubt myself thinking if I missed him there would be no finding him tonight. My legs and lungs burning my friend most gave up resting a few hundred yards below.
Then there he was still big as my flashlight spotted him.

I'll skip the rest. It was 1230 by the time we got to truck soaking wet


Then this was 230am
