"Troy's Idaho Trophy"
Photo provided by: Troy Linafelter

After seeing 66 bucks in 6 days of hunting in Idaho in 2002, Troy decided to harvested this dandy buck.

Troy writes, "I drew a limited hunt in Idaho and could only spend a total of 6 days hunting. I saw and passed up a total of 66 bucks while looking for a particular buck I had seen during my scouting trips.
On my last day of hunting, I saw a total of 22 bucks and passed on a couple that I would regret later. After arriving back at the 4-wheeler, ready to go home and call it quits, I spotted this buck bedded down across the canyon.
I slipped in to about 200 yards and took him with my 300 Winchester Mag. He is still a good buck, but I know there are plenty bigger still there if I ever draw the unit again.
