I snuck out to the stand just in time to watch this stud wake up from his afternoon nap. I’ve never seen this deer on camera, so I stood in utter shock when I saw how big he was. I watched him move from his swamp bed to 50 yards in front of me. I gave him a whistle and the 350 legend dropped him in his tracks. I’m incredibly blessed to take this buck just weeks before my baby boy comes.
