"A Second Chance for Ryan"
Photo provided by: Ryan Smith

Ryan writes, "We'd heard rumors of a big buck in the area, but couldn't seem to find any sign of him. We dropped down into the steep stuff and kicked him out of the grass he was bedded in. I
missed the first few shots on the run and thought he was gone forever. My hunting partner rubbed it in a little that I'd just missed the buck of a
lifetime. We got on his tracks and 2 miles and several hours later kicked him up again. This time he stopped and looked at me. Fatal mistake. One shot from the 7 mag. at a confirmed 280 yards and it was all over. Except for hauling him by hand out of the deepest, nastiest hole he could possibly have fallen into."
