The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Looks good to me!

I have one that taunts me...Spikes even taller than that, but doesn't meet the "three points on one side" antler restriction that Arkansas has. :(

He seems to know he's barely not legal.

Tell me about it....I'm hoping to get out for the first time this season, this weekend and early next week. :(

Likewise. I joined a club close to home a bit late in the year. Spent most of bow season "scouting" instead of hunting. The 3 hunts I did get in, I saw deer. Last hunt, I saw four big bucks together feeding on acorns. The stand was a perm one and it was set up perfectly for me to shoot deer coming in off a well used trail to the left...cept these bucks didnt come from the left :) They came from the right. It was an open stand and too many eyes look around. I couldnt move. I had to sit and watch. Never spooked em. Today was day one of gun season in Bama. I saw one of the bucks in roughly the same spot but never could get a clear shot. It's like he knew just how to keep that damn tree b/w us. Can't go back this afternoon either. Have a date with the wife......I wish I married a woman that hunted.

And congrats on the kill. I am jealous :)
