I have a one night of photos, of this buck crossing around, I’ve saw sign of him, but haven’t caught any sign on any of cameras, I started calling him ghost buck. I had sat countless hours, no sign. And yesterday as I was heading out to my blind, he was on my walking trail about 200 yards away from my blind. Just staring at me, I slowley got myself around, as he’s watching me about 70 yards away. I pull up to fire, and pull the trigger, click. Nothing, so I check my safety, I check to make sure there is one in there, and not lose my cool. I try again, click. It did it again, so I restarted from scratch, tried again, finally went off. And he buckled down, and took off. I was in disbelief, I walked up. Couldn’t find any blood, but ended up finding hair. I called up my buddy who lives in the area, we walked the area where we found hair, ended up finding blood. Myself thinking I can read where the trail was gonna continue, went way off track. My buddy ended up finding a good blood trail, and about 200 yards out, found him deep in the woods. Took us longer to get out then it did to find him. lol total story of a life time.
