Knocked out a heavy weight!

Post  Mountainman Vic on Sat Oct 19, 2013 3:25 pm

Well this morning I hunted a stand site that I had not hunted in at least 4 years. I sat there until 9am without seeing any sign of deer, around 9 I hear deer coming. I looked down in the pines and saw a little fawn and then noticed the doe was ahead of it. I could have pin wheeled her but just couldn't bring myself to work so hard as I was a long rugged mile and a half hike back to the mini van. lol That right, in these parts some time a guy has to go incognito. So she got the pass and just as she got out of site I heard more deer. I looked down and see a little 6 point making his way in. As he was feeding on acorn below my stand, I heard another deer coming. I figured here comes another little buck and out pops a hog of a deer. I recognized this buck from this past summer on a few of my scouting trips. He would come out on the food plot and his antlers where nice but the body size of this deer is what got him in trouble. I had told Holly that I hoped he didn't come in because I didn't think I'd be able to pass him up. Well he looked like he was going to pass me by after stopping to work a licking branch and then shredding a laurel bush. He then saw the little 6 and came right in. He walked out at 27 yards and I drew and settled the pin. Away went the arrow as I saw it disappear into the honey hole. In his first leap he nearly hit the ground as the arrow had went through the off side shoulder. He made a small loop around and was down within 30 yards of where I shot him. Then the work began. I cut this one up and packed him out. I think it will be the last time I take it all in one trip. I can't believe I didn't blow out my back or a knee going down over the side hill.

Hey that's great Vic!  That's the way I do it sometimes on the mountain I hunt, got to be careful under those heavy loads though...a rolled ankle can spoil a season!  Looks like a really good buck, the pack out pic is really neat....where is the camera?
