Thursday I was able to make it out for a morning sit after being pretty limited on my time in stand this season. I had hit a buck early October and unfortunately was unable to recover him after a perfect shot square into his shoulder. It was chilly with a slight breeze out of the SW and I was in a new stand covering a couple of intersecting runways. 8:05 I hear him trottin directly at me from down wind. He headed straight for the VS1 I had put out on my walk in. Didn’t get much time to examine the deer but knew I wanted to shoot him just from his body size. He piled up in 100yds and when I found him, that’s when it occurred to me this was the buck I had lost early season. It’s not always about the headgear as this buck is easily one the heaviest and largest deer that’s been taken off the property.

He came walking in from behind me, trailing behind a doe. Hearing the noise of his walking, hoping it wasn’t another stupid squirrel. He continued walking forward, about 30 yards to my right. I watched and debated, shoot? Don’t shoot? He’s not as big as last year’s, but he’s nice. So out from behind a bush he stepped, I took a deep breath and shot. He now resides in our freezer.
