Checked the camera chip and found out he was there when I got into the stand.  That's why I did not see him till he turned his hindquarters into view from behind the tree.  Sure am glad I was very quiet.
Even got me and then the wife on the retrieve.

I love how the mower on your tractor doubles as a "carcass remover"..... --099-780  It is all about practicality!

Just drag on and the tractor does the lifting.    @--0--0124

Used to leave the disc on, but had to lift up to get them on and look out for the disc blades.  Gotten smarter in my older age.    ;D

Yep, pretty slick trick there PJ.  I leave my loader bucket on the tractor all the time so never had to give that a thought, but looks like a great approach.  When I'm not at home, I use my 4 wheeler, and have started to plug in one of those hitch carriers into the 2" receiver on the ATV - it's only about 12" off the ground, sure beats wrestling them up onto the rack.  Congrats again on the buck!
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
