I was lucky enough to harvest my buck a few minutes after my brother harvested his buck standing side by side one another. The wind forced us out of the tree stands and my brother was able to shoot his buck at the base of his stand. I snuck up to where my brother was standing because there were still doe and a small buck out in front of him. Once I arrived to my brothers location I asked him what he just shot and he informed me that he shot a buck. I asked him how long he wanted to wait before we went and retrieved his kill. He said we should wait till dark, to try and get another deer. It wasn’t a minute after he said let’s wait, that we noticed a doe busting out of the woods. Right behind doe was this 8 point. We didn’t know how big the buck was, we just new it had a decent rack so we decided to try and get a shot at it. My brother was behind me over my shoulder with binoculars so he was able to help coach me to the perfect shot. I waited for this buck to step into the only narrow window I could shoot through in the trees and thats when my brother told me to take the shot. The 450 put this deer down in its tracks and the rest was history! I’m so fortunate to be able to hunt with my best friend/brother and share memories like this.
