Hey Mike: This is James Pope from Lumberton, Texas. On November 10, 2018 I killed the deer of a lifetime on a small farm in southeast Kansas. I’m reaching out to you because I believe you have hunted with the same outfitter, Keaton Kelso. He spoke highly of you and how much he enjoyed having you in camp.

I’ve had my deer officially scored and it was been accepted into the Lifetime Awards of B&C with a net non-typical score of 204 0/8!–Thanks, James

James, thanks for the sharing the pictures of your Kansas giant, and for the nice words. That is one incredible archery buck my friend.

Seeing James’ 2018 monster pop up in my email last evening was timely.

Earlier in the day I had been working on a “Top 10 Rut Tactics” script for a new episode of BIG DEER TV and I wrote:

In any given year November 6 through 13, any of those days, is the sweet spot for big bucks in most parts of the country…start planning your hunting vacation for 2019.

Take a look at the Pope buck again, what are you waiting for!
