I took this bruiser with my shotgun on the Friday afternoon hunt of December 4, 2009. It was my last chance to hunt this monster, which we have seen on several of our trail cameras since early fall in Schuyler County. Saturday Dec. 5, is my wife’s birthday. For the newlywed hunters out there, I have some helpful relationship advice for you, if you don’t want to sleep in the doghouse, you will not hunt on your spouse’s birthday.
I guess luck was on my side that day, but you know what they say about that … I would rather be lucky than good some days. Thank you for having such a great website for all of us to share our pictures and stories with each other.
