I Love North Dakota!

Skyler and I headed out last night to the same stand we hunted opening evening hoping to catch up with one of the 4 shooters that Nate has been getting pictures of. It seemed like the deer were moving really well in daylight hours just a few days before season, but once season rolled around they started moving more after dark as more and more bucks started shedding velvet. The first few days of our hunt were good. We saw quite a bit of deer movement, but no mature bucks. On day 4 we were completely rained out as North Dakota received record rainfall. Needless to say, we were really excited to get in the stand after taking a day off. Little did we know this big boy would show up with plenty of shooting light. I made a good shot at 25 yards and he only made it about 100yds. It feels great to get the season started off right in North Dakota! What an amazing place up here. In a total of 5 sits in the stand I have killed the two biggest bucks of my life. I can’t thank Nate and the Flynn family enough for having us up every year. It has quickly become my favorite trip of the year!


Nate has several years of history with this buck. Talk about a huge jump! Here he is last year (2009)
