November 4th

Post  VABuckSlayer on Thu Nov 06, 2014 3:07 pm

It has been a fairly slow season up until Tuesday. I haven't seen but a couple little bucks so far this year and shot a doe just to put one in the freezer. It's really been dead behind my house with my neighbors dogs running the deer all off my property. Well Sunday night my wife saw 6 does in the food plot out back while I was at the golf course so Monday night I hunted behind the house. I saw the same 6 does and that was all. Tuesday I had to work a little later and got home with only 35 minutes to hunt. I sat in a ground blind I made after making sure the field was empty. 10 minutes later a does come out into the plot and mills around. She then took off running across the plot and out the back. I waited but nothing. I looked at my watch and had 8 minutes of shooting light left. I looked up and saw a deer in the plot. Looked in the binos and saw antlers but couldn't tell for sure how big. It looked nice so I decided to try him. I thought I missed the first shot as he just kept feeding along. The second shot I heard it hit something and he walked into the woods. I wasn't sure of the shot so decided to wait until morning to look. As it turned out he was only 15 yards from where I shot him but to my surprise I hit him the first shot also. It was a little back but for some reason it did not phase him. Strange! When I recovered him I was shocked at how big he was. I have never seen this deer before and do not have any pictures of him. Got to love it when a big shooter just shows up on your property. I'll take it! I put a tape to him and he scores 139". That doesn't matter to me much because he has about as pretty a rack as you want to see. I love those chocolate antlers. Can't wait to see him on my wall!

To heck with the score  ,  by all means  that is just an awesome  8pt,   Period!!!!!!! And there is nothing wrong with a  139 class  8pt- Whitlock   almost pegged it spot  on-  on the score Wink
 You have bucks that would only score in the  mid 120's at your place that have impressed me many time's over the  year's- i love all those  big  Wide   buck's you share year after year,
 So happy for you, Congratulation's again , bud!!!!!
