"Memorable Father/Sons Outing"
Photo provided by: Mike Teague

Mike Teague, aka Bonepicker here at, writes, "Here's a picture of my 2011 buck. I spotted him on Monday from about 400 yards across the rim and thought he was just a little too small, I was looking for a mature buck and he seemed like a 145" buck. On Tuesday, I took my boys out with me and we spotted him again in the same area. They really wanted me to take him, but I still thought he looked about the same, not mature. Finally, they broke me, I got set up, ranged him at 285 yards, held just a shade high and let it fly. He never took a step. When we finally got over to him, he had grown! He ended up scoring 165" and both my boys and I were very pleased. They loved the big buck, I loved getting him with them. From behind the camera my grin is as big as theirs."
