"Lee's Dandy Late-Season Archery Buck"
Photo provided by: Lee Blankenship

The late-season archery Idaho mule deer hunt was a good one for Lee Blankenship. He writes, "This buck came into the canyon as I was putting a stalk on a different buck. He took the does away from the other buck. After a while the other buck tried to take them back. This old buck wasn't having it. He chased him out of sight multiple times up a little cut in the mountain. I was able to sneak over there praying he would keep pushing him up the cut. There was a standoff for about 20 minutes as one of the does caught me moving. After things settled down, sure enough here he came pushing the buck away from the does. A 35 yard shot finished my 2017 season."
