From our friend KClap in southern Virginia:
Hello Mike: Awhile back you posted our story of the 6 of us, all still-hunters, and our food plot strategies. Well, we had an awesome year!
Happy to share I caught up with this 10-pointer named “Zeus.” Shot him with my Remington .270 as he chased does hard opening morning.
My wife, who just started hunting last year, took this nice buck with a muzzleloader the day before. So proud of her! While I’m grateful for what came my way, I was most happy when I heard her shoot! Her smile says it all. She worked her tail off all summer, planting food plots, cutting trails, fighting chiggers, ticks and poison ivy, all the while going back to school full-time to get her MBA.
My brother also harvested a nice 9-point during muzzleloader. I’m a lucky man, love sharing the outdoors with my family!–Thanks and safe hunting, Kclap
Love posting bucks from my home state! Way to go guys, great testament to your hard work, good management and the fact that you’re hunting with the right frame of mind.
Thanks Steve, yeah I hope so. Will be out doing a little muzzleloader hunting yet and after that I’ll keep my cameras out to see if hes still around for next year.
Kclap. Are you sure you’re not spook spann? I’m glad you shot that buck and didn’t harvest him.
Just kidding. Good story and pics. Way to get it done with the family.
And to Scott from Mi. Don’t get disappointed if you don’t get that 10 pt. you were seeing. Another year and he might be looking like that monster your neighbor friend shot a couple years ago. I’m hoping that’s the case.
Nice work Kclap! Those are some nice bucks. Always fun to hunt with family and friends especially when your successful.
Thanks Scott, yes we try to keep it just family & friends… my nephew & brother in law came down from MI to hunt Thanksgiving week, my nephew on his first solo hunt tagged a nice healthy doe.
Hoping Ms Brealyn gets one Christmas week… safe hunting!
Lovin your success this year Kclap after the rough one last year…You deserve it. Congrat.!
Thanks Dr Bones! your turn… kclap
thanks for posting Mike!! yea we had a heck of a 10 days of hunting. Bucks were really chasing does from Nov 3rd to the 14th.. Actually should have had 2 more bucks on the ground, but my brother and friend both missed decent bucks.. Now I am limited to does only since I’m tagged out on bucks.. good luck to all and safe hunting! Kclap
Fantastic for you all. And, in my home state too.
