I have entered a contest on Black Gold Premium Bowsights Facebook page. I shared my Black Gold Moment and who ever has the most likes on their picture wins. My Black Gold Moment happened Sept 2, 2018. I finally arrowed a buck that I had been after for four years. He was on a drastic decline antler wise but that didn't matter to me. To add to this moment, when my wife heard what happened, she dressed up my 4 month old son Cannon and brought him out to see daddy's deer. It was a very emotional and special day and I'm forever thankful I got to share it with my wife and son. To like my picture, follow this link
Thank you for your time. This is the picture I submitted
Awesome. Love the elk horn propping him up.
Funny story about that shed, I was stalking this buck through the trees and I tripped over a 175" class mule deer shed, I picked it up to hang it in a tree to come back for it later. As I walked over to a tree to hang it, I found this elk shed laying on the ground. Given a 33" spread he would have been 340". It is a clean 7 point, I never did find the match.
Wow!! Cool story and what a day!!!! I'll give it a like .. Awesome buck btw.
If you have a quick minute, I would sure appreciate of any willing Bowsite members
Done:) Congrats on a fine animal and even better memory.
I will attach a link here that may help other Bowsiters as well. Good luck:)
Thank you Hawkeye, I appreciate you doing that. I wasn't sure how to do that. I appreciate everyone taking the time to give my picture a like
Anytime someone asks me to vote for them I go take a look and vote on what I think is actually the best as opposed to voting for the individual. I hate contests that really just turn into popularity contests. In this instance, I do think your pic is the nicest, so I gave it a like :) Not that I really understood the contest. Seems like there is just a bunch of pics on their feed, but I don't really understand facebook well either lol.
Thanks APauls, the contest is to share your Black Gold Moment on their page. To my understanding a Black Gold Moment is what ever you define it as but I'm guessing you must be shooting a Black Gold sight. I choose this moment as it was one of the most impactful and meaningful moment I have ever had bowhunting; I just happen to shoot their sight.
Here are pictures of the same buck in 2014 and 2017

Well done, great buck and pic. Your son is going to want to keep that pic when he is older. I’ll vote for you. Good luck.
Thank you BC, I do appreciate the support
Done. Congrats on a cool buck and glad you got to share the moment with your little man. Hope he grows up to be a killer as well!
