For the last 3 years every time
I have written this it has been with a what if attitude. Well,
this year what if is a reality.
What if 40 whitetail hunters made great shots at great deer
and never wounded or missed any. You would end up with the season
we just had. 40 Hunters Harvested 39 White-tailed Deer and 12
Mule Deer for our best season in 5 years. We took 5 bucks over
180 and our average was 162. A superb year to say the least.
Superior guides and a great area have produced a phenomenal number
of "Top End Trophies".
