Christmas Buck

Post  catfish willy on Wed Dec 25, 2013 8:06 pm

Well I got my Christmas buck I wanted. This year was a decent year for the cameras but almost everything was at night. I had several bucks on camera I would've loved to tag. All of our early bow season the only bucks I seen I would've shot I was hunting with Jacob's brother and was so close both times. Rifle season I got to see a really nice buck that I'm not totally sure who it was but 300 yards is just too far to shoot without anything to rest on. Black powder season I didn't even see a buck but I did have a big doe pick me out and I shot her. About a week ago I had a buck that randomly showed up at 2 in the afternoon but didn't think much of him I just assumed some rabbit hunters had pushed him up and he was just passing through. Where I have the stand is the thickest part of the farm. At the bottom of the hill is a little creek surrounded by cat tails and the majority of the rest of it is sage brush, briars, and saplings. There is one pond in the middle of the holler and one behind me in me neighbors yard about 150 yards away and I was feeding corn to see what survived back there and he must've decided he liked it. Except for last night he had been back every night since then and twice he was in shooting hours but one day I had went over to Jacob's house and the other the wind was blowing straight to where he came from so I didn't risk it. Today the wind was iffy but if he came in the way he usually did I would've got a shot before he caught my scent and I had planned to head to Florida in the morning so I decided to go ahead and try it. After we went to my grandma's house and ate dinner I came back to the house and went straight to my stand. I had sat there until about 5:30ish thinking it was starting to get dark he better hurry and then I noticed his antlers move at the top of the hill. There is one main trail that comes down through there and I watched him follow it all the way to the ditch where he couldn't see me so I got ready. Just like he was supposed to he stayed on that trail until he got to 30 yards and turned broadside. I thought he might come in a little closer just like the doe I shot with my muzzleloader but If he made it too much more to the left he would catch my scent so I decided to go ahead and shoot. He didn't go far.
