Double dropper, full velvet buck down!

Post  TheCReW on Wed Sep 11, 2013 11:01 am

I decided to head out and sit for the double droptine buck we have been getting on trail cam.  We didn't setup any stand or blind or anything, there was just a small line of brush between two fields where he had been travelling so I hiked in there and setup.  It was only about 150 yards from where I figured he was bedding so I had to hike in real slowly so he didn't hear me.  As a result I didn't get setup until about half hour before sunset.  I was just setting up the camera and messing around with exactly where I wanted it when I caught movement in the viewfinder and he was on his way out of the swamp to where I was sitting!  I had only been sitting 5 minutes.  He came closer and closer until he was 30 yards broadside and I was just about to draw when he turned an walked steadily directly at me so I just froze.  He came closer and closer and closer and was staring a hole through me, but continued to walk until he was 6 yards from me when he suddenly turned broadside but continued to walk.  I quickly drew back my bow but he was so close he heard it and busted me, his head snapped up and he saw me, but I managed to settle the pin and put the arrow through him before he ran!  I could not believe the mass and size of his rack, i definitely underestimated him.  As he ran away he just about fell before making it to the swamp so I knew he was hit good.  I picked up the blood covered arrow at 8 steps from where I was sitting.  I called Lindsay and waited until her and the munchkin got there to retrieve him.  
His velvet is perfect and mass in insane, 47" of mass, and H3s just under 7".  I'm done hunting wts for 2013, but really happy with him.  A quick look at the video showed I managed to capture everything!

If a deer like that was at 6 yards in front of me he would see me shaking so bad he would've been gone!
Congrats on a freakin giant!

Awesome buck Chad!!!!! You certainly put your time in scouting and he well deserved. I was just curious about this buck when I saw the trail cam pics. Is he by any chance the buck that your dog took the shed of???

Congrats Chad, what a hoss! cheers 

I've always dreamed of killing a buck in full velvet, so you pretty much just killed my dream buck with that mass and those drops. Smile  Can't wait to read the full story in BGI!

Great buck Chad, congratulations!  Can you still get after the elk or is it time to wolf hunt?  Or better yet find the Mrs. one a little bigger than that!

Thanks all, pretty excited still.  Our elk season starts again Sept.15 till the end of the month, and mule deer is this month as well, then moose, and then wolves!  Definitely gonna try help out Lindsay and a bunch of friends with their wt hunts too and hopefully get some good video!

I don't think he is the same buck Vic, maybe some shared genes but a lot of differences.  I am still hopin that buck shows up again in November!
