Bucks That Got Away - Part 1

In 2000 my Dad hunted 19AS with a PSE Mach 6! Hunting from a rock-blind above a watering hole he waited for a buck we named "Shorty II" to come near. When the buck arrived he was nearly to far from the blind for a shot, but this was my Dad's last day to hunt so he took his chances. The arrow missed. We estimated "Shorty II" at over 90 inches and, as far as we know, the buck was never killed.

Aaahhhhhh.....the glory days of the 19A archery hunt!!

I had two archery tags, one in 1999 and one in 2001. I knew squat about hunting antelope and less than squat about scoring them. Looking back, I know for sure that I hunted more than one buck that would have broken the World's Record!

Too bad that unit sucks now. Well, it doesn't really suck, but it's no where near what it was back then. Maybe some day the GFD will finally start drop the tag numbers and start to manage it back to trophy quality.
