It was the coldest morning of the year, 10 degrees. I was sitting along a field watching some does just grazing and the other side of me was a bunch of thicket. It was about 830 am. I hit the grunt call 3 times and did a snort wheeze and this bruiser came running to me out of the thicket. He came in perfect and gave me a 20 yard shot.

Just after daylight had this buck trailing a doe. He stopped to freshen up a ground scrape then proceeded into the open shooting lane about 60yds out. We were so nervous one of us bumped something and made a clank and he was head on just staring at us, I asked him if he was comfortable with the shot and no sooner than I hear I’m gonna shoot him dad boom gun goes off deer ran maybe 120 yds. This is his first deer and he handled it like a pro. Very proud dad here.

Passed on a lot of bucks this year and was starting to think this year might be a bust. I threw up a tent in a fence row based on a buddies suggestion from some info he had about a decent buck near one our farms. He was the fifth buck to come out in the field and patience paid off. No special story other than he came out and I shot him.
