I got the Granddaddy

My biggest deer 16 pointer

11/10/2010 I got to my stand around 2:00pm started to rattle and grunt, heard a noise and finally I seen horns. Now I'm excited not sure how may points but it has a rack, up to this point I had only does hanging around. I got the 243 ready waiting and hoping that he get outs of the brush still no clue of the size and in the scope I had a clear neck shot. One shot and that is all it took. Sitting on my high ridge looking down all I could see was his hind quarters it was now 2:39. I called my husband (Trent) left a message I got a spiker. He called back and told me to stay in my stand it was 3:30 and once it gets darker we would ranger around to get the deer because he just got off work and wanted to spend time at his stand. I understood and just before we hung up I said maybe it is a 8 pointer. This obviously bothered him and about 20 minutes later he calls and said come pick me up we will go get the deer and how do you get a 8 pointer out of a spiker! I said I'm blonde! I get my ranger and seen my brother (Mark) ask him to get the other ranger because I might have a big one. Of course he chuckled. Picked up Trent and said Mark is coming and he goes I can handle this! Well when we got to the deer Trent could not believe his eyes and neither could I my heart was racing so fast 16 pointer wow that is crazy. Mark pulled in seeing me jumping like a wild woman, he gets out and I said and "Who's the hunter now"! I will have bragging rights for a long time, but as my 6 year old nephew said "That is nice but there are bigger ones"!.
