"Great Year for Taylor & Logan"
Photo provided by: Taylor

Taylor writes, "My son (Logan 13 yrs old) and I purchased left over antelope tags for a unit in Wyoming. We have a friend that has a small piece of land that holds a few bucks in the unit and he invited us to hunt. We sat on water and the buck in the pics came in on the evening of Aug. 18th. He was out of range for my boy, so I took the shot and the rest is history.

A few days later, on the 22nd, we again were hunting together. This time in a general season deer unit in Utah. We know the area well and have hunted it for years. We decided to do an early afternoon hunt in a bedding area that has been sucessful in the past. As we still hunted the timber, I glassed up a buck in his bed. We tried to get close enough for a shot, but it soon became apparent that we weren't going to be able to get close enough together. Logan said, "You go dad. I want you to shoot a good one". With the maturity of a grown man, my son graciously sent me after the biggest buck I had yet to kill. A short stalk and one hour wait later and the buck stood in his bed. I let the arrrow fly and he was down within 50 yards.

I am not an official score type of guy but my son sure is. He measured the antelope at 68" and the deer at 168 1/8".

Although I am very grateful for two awesome animals in only four days, I am most thankful for the opportunity I had to share in them both with my boy. He is the best hunting partner I could ever ask for or want."
