Nice job, Brad! Congratulations!

Rifle or bow? Was this a spot and stalk or blind hunt? What was the shot distance? Where in NV?

Thank you Peddler and Bigdaddy. Rifledude I was in area 112 for rifle season. It was a spot and stalk in antelope valley. Spotted them from about 3 miles away and worked in from there. This buck ended up running another smaller buck away and separated himself from the Does. Some how my cousin and i managed to work our way between him and the Does. We were glassing the Does at about 700 yds trying to find him when all of a sudden he comes trotting along about 80 yds from us. He never saw us. I pulled up, shot and down he went. I must have been a little too excited because i ended up hitting him in the Neck lol. Had a great time. And i wanted to share and thank you guys for helping me with advice from scope, to rings, to a budget spotting scope. It all came together in the end to help me achieve my goal. Now if i can get my wife to tag her first mule deer in October and tag out with a mule deer for me, it will make my year.

I'll add 50 points on the beard. Being that long takes a lot of time.

Skip, that beard is like nine inches. Still trophy status. How many turkeys do you see with moustache.
 
No offense Brad and nicely done I'll add. Congrats on your harvest.

Skylar, the Turkey line was great, I loved it.

As long as I've had a beard mine would be longer than ZZ Top if I didn't trim it, but you gotta have a stash or it ain't a beard.

Cool

Now I'm looking at Brad on my 23" monitor and I can see his stash. He does qualify for the 50 points.
