What a weekend! I’m a little late with some of this, but it’s because I haven’t had a chance to come up for air until now. First, me and my Duck Dynasty meets ZZ Top camera man, @mattalanyoung , filmed an episode of North American Mule Deer, I mean, North American Whitetail, TV. Matt’s been behind me to document some pretty spectacular moments over the years, and the one we shared taking this big Eastern Colorado bruiser ranks pretty high on the list. But the best was yet to come. As many of you know, my son @lane.farris plays college football, and there’s only one thing about football season he hates, and that’s that it impacts his other passion – hunting! Lane called me a few weeks ago talking about buying a leftover elk license in a unit he’d only been into once a few years ago. Because he’d only have about a day-and-a-half to hunt, on public ground, in a unit that he wasn’t especially familiar with, I told him not to waste his time and money. The next day he bought the tag… Fast forward to this weekend, Lane and his buddy @kacinnowlin30 drove all night and packed into their hunting area after getting no sleep. Just after watching my buck go down, I got an excited phone call from Lane saying he just shot a six-point bull! When I asked him where he got it, he says, “Do you remember those meadows way up top that you told me were too far to pack into on such a short hunt?” I said, “Yes,” and he says, “I got him right there!” I guess that shows how much dad knows! After he and Kacin packed his bull off the mountain, Lane got there just in time for our good friend @jd_hart_525 make a great shot another big muley buck with me and his dad here in Eastern Colorado. Not a bad pile of bones for one weekend! I’d say we have a ton to be grateful for.
