Annual Father And Son Alabama Hunt
We are up in Southeast Alabama for our annual deer. I have made this trip with my youngest son for the past 5 years. This morning was our best single hunt. I shot a a old 8 point about 150 pounds. My son shot his best deer to date. An 8 point weighing 196 pounds. Recovering my deer was extreme event! He ran a good, 200 yards or better and finished it off with a jump down a ravine in a fast moving creek. He got hung up on a branch. I had climb down and drag him out of the water and down the bank to keep him clear of the water. Eventually, we had to pull and push him up the embankment and the field dress him to drag him a significant distance up hill to get close enough to winch the final distance. A definite challenge. Great memories made today!
