Started out pretty rough on Saturday Morning with the fires, smoke, and Santa Ana winds on blast. Sunday morning with the full moon high and bright, I didn't really like my chances either. My son had enough of the winds and high heat on Saturday and declined this morning when I woke him at 4am to get rolling...Bucks and does were on the move this morning anyhow and I kept glassing until I found a nice buck around 8:30am. Made a stalk to around 220 across a deep canyon and the 7mag with a copper Hornady 139 gr GMX dropped him where he stood. Steep pack out and the dang heat made it tough!!! Not a monster but I have been on a drought and hungry for some venison...
