We received this email from proud dad, Nick Schnabel, after his son, Quade, from Bozeman, tagged a nice buck this youth season!
Here’s the message:
Quade Schnabel tagged his second Montana Youth Season Buck. Spotted a couple bucks looking to bed in the aspen line. They reemerged and started across the open face. We waited for them to go out of sight and thought we could track them in the snow. We made our way up the hill, only to have them loop down the draw, toward the cut barley. We belly-crawled across the bald hill and set up on the bipod with a downhill poke. One buck started to trot and one looked back, his Savage Compact Axis .243 found the mark at 200 yards. Great day, me and my boy!
Way to go, Quade!
