So having my son full time now and working a full time job limits me severely. Hakon continues to do well and I am so thankful for that. I managed to get a long weekend of hunting the rut in. I hunted hard Fri-Monday and got it done Monday morning at 11am! The first three days were slow but Monday morning the woods were on fire! I was covered in bucks and does all morning. I checked the card at that stand the day before and there were 2 mature bucks there at 11:17am and the wind was perfect for that stand Monday so that is where I sat. Sure enough at 11am a mature doe came running in followed by this guy and another decent buck. I didn't waste any time drawing down on him. 25 yard quartering away shot blew threw him and he died at the top of a huge ravine. I was thankful he didn't go down it...I could only hunt till noon/1 so I got it done in the 9th inning for sure!
That's awesome! Making your scarce time count with a mid-day buck. Congrats!

Way to go! Congrats.
Good job. When Halloween passed and there was nothing on the ground I was concerned about you. That’s been your magic day in the past if I recall
Congrats on a nice buck.
Atta boy Matt! WTG!
Congrats on a great buck, Matt!
Thanks guys! Yes Halloween has always been good to me although the weather in Pitt/Ohio on Halloween was horrendous...rain, wind and warm temps. A cold front came through Thursday night as I got to camp and conditions were right. Took a few days but Monday, like I said, it was on fire! Hunting the right wind, paying attention to cams and being persistent did the trick!
Great buck Matt! Well deserved.....Big congrats
Nice buck! Thanks for the update.
Way to go Matt!
Great job Matt!!
That’s a great buck Matt. He’ll look real nice in your man cave. Way to go!
Congrats Matt! Are you going to put this mount in the new man cave or is it going in Hakon's room?
Great job Matt!
Doing a Euro mount on this guy my man cave is pretty full already! haha I'm not sure where I'll hang the antlers but they will be displayed with pride! I don't plan on another full shoulder mount unless I shoot one bigger than my biggest of 163"...and that will be hard to top!
