    Very nice. I'll be out 3 more times. Hoping either I drop one more, or the wife drops one.

    Congrats Adam,

    I'd say you had a great season if that archery buck on the home page is yours also! About 20 years ago when NW Ct got that early freak 2' snowfall we were hunting Peoples when my buddy shot a full racked 8 pter similar to yours. In his 100 yard death run he dropped both antlers in deep snow and only with dumb luck we found both sides.

    Norfolk was really slow this year, we passed on a couple small ones and that was it. I killed a couple bucks with the bow up here in NH but unknowingly had a heart attack the day before Ct rifle opened. I was just getting over the 24 bug and hoped it would pass. I pounded down to Ct for daylight and tried to hunt for a couple days but couldn't walk (with treestand, pack and rifle) more than 20 yards without my lungs burning and dizziness. Few days later I wound up in ICU for 9 days and had a triple bypass. Dr said dragging out those 2 bucks alone should have killed me, my "lungs burning" was heart not getting enough blood! Other than my split sternum I'm feeling great, just hope I can shoot my bow come fall. Spring turkey can't be that far away, congrats again, you earned them!

    Update

    As an update to this thread, I finally just got back the results from the tooth fairy (deerage.com) and this buck was aged at 9.5 years old!! I wasn't all that surprised, I knew he was an old timer. So looking through a bunch of pics over the years I was able to identify him as a deer I had previously targeted for a few years before he seemingly disappeared. Turns out I had passed on him in 2012 thinking he was only a 3.5 year old and in 2014 he was my number one target buck that I called the ghost because I got two pics of him in the summer and I never saw him or got any pics after until the day I shot him over two years later. This is him from 2014 as a 7 year old in all his glory. A highly honorable and elusive survivor.

    Very cool to have bagged him and figure out that you two had some history.
