A buck call Fatty

Post  impactarcher on Wed Jan 07, 2015 8:14 am

Last night I ended my 2014 season by harvesting a buck I called Fatty.   My 2014 hit list included four mature bucks, two of which I'll call "cull bucks" and two that were "shooters".   Fatty was one of those cull bucks but at 5.5 years of age he was in his prime.  I set out multiple cameras overlooking my turnip food plots in hopes of seeing my number one hit list buck named Jose, but he was no where to be seen.   Fatty, number three on the hit list was a buck I got only 5 pictures of all summer and fall but I had known him for three seasons. When I checked the cameras for the first time Fatty was on the field multiple times but always at night!   I knew the only thing that would bring him out in daylight was cold and snow, neither of which I have had........until last night!    A fresh 4" of snow had fallen the night before and I knew it was now or never.   So last night at 4:07 pm a full hour before dark guess who walks out into the food plot as the first deer in the field???  FATTY!!!!!!    A couple minutes later he lay dead 60 yards away and the chapter of Fatty and my 2014 season was closed.   First thing I noticed about fatty was his immense body size, he was a beast!  Even his neck looked rutted up and huge still.  Many of you guy's and gal's have the luxury of friends or family to help you drag your deer out of the woods and take hero pics but I don't because my lease is 2 hours from home lol!   So can you imagine the fun I had trying to lift this big old buck in the back of my truck?   Thank god I have Herculean strength LOL!!!!!    Sorry no hero pics it was cold as heck and I was alone without a camera!   And as I type this it's -3 outside so I don't plan on taking hero pics now either.  HA! 

Here is Fatty back in September.  One of only 5 pics I got of him all summer and fall!   


And here is Fatty on the turnip plot looking like a stud!
