The big surprise was as I adjusted a little to get the sights on him a bigger buck(not a lot bigger but definitely bigger) stepped out from the same thicket this one just came from and had me pegged.

At that moment I had this buck dead in the rights at 10 yards and another bigger buck a few yards behind him that had just picked up my slight movement. I briefly weighed my options and let it fly thinking if I got greedy I was likely to end up with nothing.

It was an intense experience for sure.

The night before I got busted and made a fool of by a spike buck. Things can sure turn around in a hurry both good and bad.
