This all started when I was contacted by another member here. He was looking for some info on a zone I was familiar with and, after several e-mails and phone conversations, I could tell he was a "like minded hunter." Because of this, I felt comfortable sharing a little more detailed info with him. I also became aware that his group was sitting on quite a few points. Well...my daughter is scheduled to start nursing school in January and this would have been her last chance to hunt (this time of year) for a couple years. We had one problem and that was the fact that she was one point short of a guaranteed tag for our favorite zone. Long story short, the other party members agreed to let her join their party application which would guarantee her a tag! We did in fact all draw the tag and also ended up camping and hunting together as well.
For the first several days, we passed on many good bucks. However, when this guy tried to sneak around us, my daughter noticed he had a neat tripod on one side. One shot at 80 yards and down he went. The other 3 hunters in camp also did well with very respectable bucks of their own.
In the end, she ended up with and dandy 5x4 buck, more great memories and 3 new friends for life! I can't thank them enough for letting her go in with them! Without their trust and generosity none of this could have happened!

When your daughter shares your passion....PRICELESS!!

Beautiful buck. Great story and I think you guys helped each other a lot and made great friends. I think sharing points with friends is something that makes a lot of sense and obviously at times develops new friendships.

Great story. Can't make that kind of stuff happen when people don't want to share or work together. Its very nice to see the hobbie still has some good country folks around. Congrats to you all. Way to get the job done.

Great buck! Congratulations to your daughter & her proud Dad. Awesome story too. I like to hear when hunters help each other out to make for successful hunts.
