A new PR for me, 10 trips to NoDak in 2017. 2 of those included work trips to finalize our new deer camp, but they were 18 hours on the road roundtrip nonetheless. A couple of early season encounters left me wanting more. Late season was off to a slow start. The weather was not cooperating, until now. Just after Christmas, I had a few days to make one last trip north. After pulling camera cards, I was optimistic. High pressure and temps well below 0 had several good deer moving in daylight. Afternoon #1 would prove to be all it took. This nice 8 fit the bill and I was honored to wrap my tag around him after a marathon of season for me in North Dakota.
