I was sitting opening morning in a ground blind in the woods behind my house, I heard a commotion to my left. I turned and saw a buck chasing a doe in and out of the trees . I new right away that this was the big buck, I was hoping to see. We have gotten many trail came pics of him over the last 2 years and my brother passed him the year before. As I tried to get a shot the doe would move causing the buck to move as well. This happened a few times . My uncle who was hunting with me tried to keep me calm. The doe suddenly sprinted away from us heading out to our CRP field. The buck turned at started to follow her. My uncle took a quick shot . The buck stopped, I feel not knowing where the shot came from. I was able to get a good look at him and fired. He dropped right down 75 yards away. I was very excited.

It’s been a rough season but I never gave up hope, my target buck was taken early on in the season by another hunter and I hadn’t seen a deer since. He came out after a doe and a smaller buck and gave me a perfect shot at 75 yards. He’s my biggest buck to date.
