After sitting in the stand freezing all morning and not seeing anything I decided to pitch a tent blind in a different area. Caught him running across the Hayfield in the middle of the day, he was never on any trailcam photos.

He came in at 20 yards behind some trees wouldn’t give a clear shot finally at about 5:05 he gave enough of his body to get a shot. Perfect heart and lung shot. First deer ever harvested.

I SHOT THE WRONG BUCK! This was the 5th day of the gun season and I had seen more activity than anytime in my 45 years of hunting. 100 deer with 1/3 of them bucks! At about 11:35am I looked behind my tree stand to see the buck of a lifetime chasing a doe through a nearby field and they were coming my way! The doe entered the woods between myself and the field and quickly hit the swamp my tree stand was overlooking. She crossed the swamp with the buck following slowly back in the trees. As he entered the swamp I got a quick glimpse of the antlers and though heavy didn’t seem like the buck I had just seen chasing in the cornfield. I just wasn’t sure what to do. As soon as he hit the swamp at about 80 yards out he stopped with his head behind a tree. I debated and once the crosshairs were steady made the decision to pull the trigger and dropped him. At that point the biggest buck I had ever seen dead or alive who was hanging back in the trees turned tail and disappeared. I shot the wrong buck! I am happy as he is the second largest buck of my lifetime but knowing what I could have had makes it hard to sleep at night. If someone gets this buck the entire hunting community will know it.

Emerson

8 year old Emerson shot his first deer with a muzzleloader on 11/20/2018 from a ground blind. Emerson wanted this particular buck that kept showing up on his trail cam at night. The buck finally came in on a grunt call and ran about 30 yards after being shot. Kid couldn’t stop smiling all night!
