"Big 4x5 Velvet Buck Down"
Photo provided by: Wade Hale

Wade Hale writes, "It's not always easy to draw a second choice deer tag in Colorado, but for sure it's not easy to kill a 180 buck in a second choice unit. My 15 yr old son Wyatt spotted this buck as we were coming out of a stand of aspen. He was bedded down 120 yards up a hill in open brush. It had just stopped raining and I decided to try stalking up on him. I was able to close the gap to 30 yards by army crawling. I stood up, he stood up, I took the only shot I had and he was dead instantly. I high fived and thanked my son for spotting such a great buck. It was awesome to have him there watching the whole thing go down and to help me pack him out ... lol. I'm on a run now with last year's buck in the dark photo coming in at over 190."
