Looking forward to reading them, Archery Nut but like Mortimer said, I am not looking forward to the end :(

Count me in for a copy of this book and I know for a fact, a lot of people would buy it in an instant! Do you have a publisher?

I read in the Archery post that you shot a monster with the bow. I would love to read that adventure!

As usual, Archerynut, excellent story and thank you for sharing.

I just wanted to let you know that I introduced a friend of mine to this site and thread and he is following your collection and loves it. An interesting note though, he has never hunted before and is now very keen!

Thanks AN for another great story! I remembered reading about this year's buck and because of the details in which you tell your stories I had almost a deja vu moment (Haven't I read this story before?) when reading about your father. It's going to be a sad day for a lot of us when these retellings end.

Very cool. Very rare to get a piebald let alone a buck! RR and I found a nice piece of hunting ground that has some roads through it but still a ton of woods. Only problem ........not much deer there. We're on the search again for a new piece of heaven.

Great Story AN! Are you a superstitious person? Would you have shot the piebald buck even knowing that he was piebald?

Another part I'd like to see:
"The bear then did a quick 360 and really booted it in the opposite direction."

It would be awfully cool to see that bear do a whole rotation and look at you while he ran backwards away from you!

A Million Thanks AN. I'm very sad to have these all come to an end, but I really appreciate all the time you put into letting us all relive these events with you as if we were right there with you!

I say you attach at least some of the pictures and quick stories of all your Archery bucks to the end of this as well! It'll make a great Epilogue, and nothing here says "Rifles only" :)

Man you have a gift! I have enjoyed your stories immensely. From beginning to end they were all a treat. It almost felt like I was there standing over your shoulder. I think anyone that has hunted the good old days (80/90)lol, knows what you mean about hunting the big woods. Around home there isn't much hardwoods and the ground is pretty flat but we used to have big spruce knolls that went on for ever and the deer would have them all tore to hell come fall. Man I miss those wood and those days. Thanks again AN, mortimer :)

I was happy to read your latest story but sad to see the series end. As Mortimer put it, you have a gift and very few writers can convey what you have accomplished. Good God, I felt I was right there and felt winded as well from the long drags! HA! :P

Thank you for sharing!

Well AN, I did a lot of catching up today on your old posts and more recent ones. Love the stories about the Grand John area. Actually, I continue to hunt not too far way from there. Great country, but deer are very scarce. Nice to get up in those old hardwood ridges and just take it all in. When I started deer hunting in the area there was a lot of stories about the "good old days" and where the guys at the camp had shot their deer before. I hunted for years out there, and a few does a season or a white flag was a good a year. I took up the bow as well, but I still like to go to the camp with the rifle if I have the opportunity. Love the stories and photos. Keep up the good work!

I've spent f12 hours reading all of your stories on here,its some of the best reading i've had the pleasure to sit down and enjoy.I have no doubt in my mind you are what they call a"dedicated'buck hunter,and a very good one at that!I think you should have a book of these stories put together and published into a book,its definately somethingn that should be in a hunting book store.Some of these stories kept me up until 2 am ,i couldn't stop reading.LOL


I THANK YOU AGAIN,SOME VERY GREAT MEMORABLE TIMES YOU'VE SHARED AND I'M SO GLAD YOU DID!You remind me of my dad in those red/black plaid and wool pants pictures.LOL
