What an awsome day!

Post  AlexHastings on Sat Nov 09, 2013 9:23 pm

Well today was absolutley awesome for me, I was able to knock down a good one on my first day of vacation. Got in the stand well before daylight and right at daylight i had a doe come through acting like she was being chased and nothing ever did come in behind her. About 10 till 8 i decided to do a little rattling and grunting, i was looking towards the south from my stand when i hear a branch snap behind me, i peak around and see a deer and i know its a buck but couldnt tell how good he was. He was behind a tree at 20 yards and he stepped out and i immediatley knew he was a shooter, he looks up at me and has me pegged and then turns and i draw and he takes off trotting and but i got him to stop for a 25 yard shot and i smoked him. Here are some pictures,


]



He is a mainframe 10 with a sticker coming off his left side in between his g3 and g4 making him a 11 point. We rough scored him trying to be as accurate as we could and came up with 157 3/8ths. He outscores daggers from last year and makes him my best buck to date but the story with daggers will truley be hard to beat. Now i have 8 more days of vacation with just a doe tag in my pocket unless i decide to get another either sex combo before gun season. I really want a buck tag in my pocket come gun season as we only get 2 per year so if i get another one it is really going to take a special buck for me to fill that tag before gun season gets here. Hope you guys enjoyed the story, it truley was an awesome day.

Thanks everyone! It all happened so fast but i had to slow it down and make sure i made a good shot on him, i didnt want to mess it up regardless of being rushed. As my mom told me yesterday, iv been carrying an angle with me everytime i go out and hunt, my brothers picture is still attached to my bow and will be there from now on. He is watching over me that is for sure.
