Here is my DIY Eastern Colorado Private land massive buck I killed on Halloween. Oct 30th I woke up at 2AM to drive 15 straight hours by myself from Indiana to Eastern Colorado. I arrived in Eastern Colorado at 3:30 and after a hour and a half visit with family I was out the door for a quick hunt/scout. I was unable to locate any deer that first evening. Next morning I was up early high on anticipation of what the day would hold. Having access to approximately 50,000 acres I had a lot of ground to cover. So I got my map out and started covering as much country as possible. After about a hour I came across this buck tending a doe. I continued to watch the buck and quickly learned that the property he was on was property I did not have permission to hunt on. After a few quick phone calls permission was granted and the waiting game began. I watched this big buck tend does, lip curl, and run four other smaller bucks off. After about a hour or so the does finally began to bed down and soon he did as well in a big CRP Field. I figured out the wind was steadily from the south so I drove around to the north of the deer and parked. There was a perfect berm that hid my mile and a half stalk. I kept peeking over the berm and glassed to try to locate the deer. Finally I found the ears of a big ol doe and knew I was close. Then behind her was one of the smaller bucks. Then all the does stood up and started feeding again. Then he stood up. I actually passed him up by 30 or so yards. He fed over to the does and with one well placed high shoulder shot from my Proof Research Glacier/TI in 6.5 PRC and a 140 VLD at 150 yards he went straight down. I can’t wait until I can draw the tag again!!!

So apparently photobucket does not work how it used to. Anyone kind enough to post pics for me? Sorry.
