This buck I have been watching for the past 4 seasons never seeing him in daylight till this year. Once during archery but wasn’t able to make it work. Then again once in rifle season only seeing his rack as he walked away. Then finally on the 8th of December he finally came into my food plot at 5:25 giving me the shot I’ve waited years for. 70 yard shot he went down and the story finally came to an end. 5.5 year old that’s been crippled since he was 2.5
