taylor and i have what we call "the next ridge syndrome". we both are willing to hike to the ends of the earth to find a buck, we attribute a lot of our success to that and staying 100% positive no matter how bad the hunting is. after a lunch break we continued further and further until we came over a mountain pass where @tay_eddy
spotted this three point 250 yards below. it had been raining, and it was like there was a ray of sun shining right on the buck. there was no mistaking, he was a shooter for us! he stayed and watched him as i went back a few hundred yards to grab my camera gear out of my back pack, as i was making my way back i could tell taylor was freaking out. i made my way over to him and he said, "another shooter buck just showed up, let's double up baby!" he couldn't decide which one he wanted so we flipped a coin, it was decided i would get the 4, and he would get the big 3. with the wind in our face, the stalk was on as the bucks fed underneath a 50 ft cliff. as we got to about 150 yards above them we took our shoes off in order to be completely silent.
