Hunted 20 years, passed on countless smaller bucks and harvested dozens of doe. This year it finally came together. Had a mature buck on camera and but never saw him live during bow season. 2nd day of rifle, finally got a South wind. He came in after a doe and 5 pt walked by. He looked up at me when i got my rifle into position. We locked eyes and the rest is history. Best part…. all 3 of my sons were at camp to share the experience. Memories for a lifetime.
