Recently my buddy Mike sent me some photos from his Adirondack hunt. The week didn't start off well with heavy rain on and off, but by Sunday morning the storm had passed and the skies were clear. Mike left camp at 6:10 am and headed for his stand. When he was half way to his stand he realized he left his radio back and camp and returned to get it.
By the time Mike got to his stand day was breaking. After 45 minutes on the stand, Mike heard a branch snap over his left shoulder about 200 yards away. After fifteen minutes of silence Mike started to relax when he caught movement 70 yards out. Mike couldn't tell if the deer was a buck as he looked at the deer through his 44 lever action. The buck walked past one more tree and Mike was ale to see that there were four points on one side.
After fifteen years of hunting the Adirondacks, Mike finally got his hard earned big ADK buck! Congrats goes out to Mike on staying determined and getting it done.
