BIG BUCK DOWN!!

To many, Friday the 13th is a dreaded day; a day guaranteed to be filled with bad karma, bad luck, and bad juju! Well…....NOT FOR US CAHOONS!!!! WAAAAHHOOOOO!

This year Friday the 13th brought Matt, not only his first buck ever but a large one at that!! I received a phone call today at about 5:45 PM from an ECSTATIC Matt announcing the harvest of ONE HUGE 7 x 8 (or 15 point) BUCK!


Here he is!!!
Close up on the antlers!
Haulin' him across the river! Tough men!
Another close up!
This gives you a little idea of the size of this guy!
Matt and Dane, 2 proud hunters!
You might be a redneck if......

This is just a preview, more pictures and a better update to come!

HURRAY!!! You might be a red neck is right! Oh it is a GOOD thing you live down there in the Burg :) with all that hunting! So, is that beast going to provide you all the meat you need for the winter? We were pretty excited to hear the news! You guys are the best! I can't wait to see you for Thanksgiving!!!! Congrats on your Buck Matt! Nice shots Paige :)

Is this part of the government stimulus for BIG BUCKS???? Ha! Ha! Your buck is totally AWESOME. Congratulations! At Thanksgiving we want to hear the whole story of river and all. Love your blog of all your adventures in the wild. love ya, Pettits!

Definitely a Matt & Paige family moment!

Are you guys taking donations for mounting or is Cabela's just going to display it at their Post Falls, Idaho store for you?

There is a church talk in there somewhere... long suffering, patience, lovely, of good report, praiseworthy, brotherly kindness, diligence, the field is white-tail already to harvest...

Totally massive! Nice docu-drama with the photos! Congratulations!
