Mike's Nice Buck

This is a tribute to my buddy Mike. He shot this nice buck in the backcountry of Uinta National Forest. This buck walked 20 yards in front of him. This was not one of those kills were Mike just happened to be sitting in the right place at the right time. Mike spotted this buck bedded down in some cliffs and came up with a plan on how he could shoot this buck. Mike picked a spot where he knew the buck, if pushed, would pass through. He then had another buddy hike around to the other side of the cliffs and start to push the buck towards him. His strategy worked perfectly. The buck passed broadside in front of him 20 yards away and Mike hit the buck right in the vitals. The buck ran about 20 yards and collapsed down a rock slide. Mike, this is my year to get a nice looking buck.
