Started chasing him last year as a 10 point and couldn’t seal the deal. Trail cam photos throughout February told me he made it through the season and thus started the non-stop strategizing on how to get in front of him this year. He outsmarted me all bow season but when he heard two bucks harassing a hot doe in my food plot, he came exploding out of the woods to chase them away from her and I finally got my opportunity. I feel so blessed for the experience and thankful to my wife who put up with my obsession over getting this buck.
