Brandon Marquez, aka bmarquez, shared with us in the forums the success he had in 2013.
Brandon writes, "I have been reading posts on this site for a long time, and finally shot a buck that is worthy of posting on here. This was a DIY hunt, no outfitter. I saw a couple bigger than this one during my hunt, but never could get close enough. The night before I got him I snuck within 275 yards of an absolute giant, but never could get closer. As I was looking for that buck the next night I spotted six really nice bucks bedded and snuck in. This was the big one of the six, and I could not pass him up. I got within 100 yards, and fortunately made a great shot when he stood up that put him down almost immediately. I hope you enjoy! I had him green scored at Cabela's TAGS and they measured him at 201-1/2". He has a 27" inside spread and 29" outside. Sorry for the poor photography that really does him no justice."
