So I’ve been getting this buck on camera since September every time he showed up I was either at work. Here only made one actual day time appearance and a few early mornings he showed up but last time I had him on camera was late October so I checked the camera on Monday and saw that he had been there last Wednesday into Thanksgiving morning. So I hunted most of the day Tuesday and saw nothing. So on my way to work yesterday I noticed deer were moving. So I decided to use a few hours of PTO and go give it another try. So right up till last good shooting light I didn’t see a thing. Then all of a sudden I noticed a deer nose cooking out of the small white pines and then a face then a body. When I put the scope on him is when I saw it was the 10 I was after. He came out lifted his nose to smell them started to turn and leave. When he gave me a shot I took it, he dropped then jumped out of sight. As I walked down my lane to find him he jumped up again and I took another shot at him and he didn’t go far. From the first shot to where he piled up was 40 yards. Couldn’t believe it that I got him.

Persistence pays off. I’ve been hunting 25 years and my biggest deer up to this point was a small 7 point. I was fortunate enough to have this buck of a lifetime walk in front of my blind as he was lured in by a doe in heat. He ran about 20 yards after the shot. He ended up winning the Big Buck contest at Little River Casino in Manistee. His unofficial score at the buck pole was 166 but many people claimed he’ll score higher. I still can’t believe I was fortunate enough to get this incredible deer.
