Default Monster Va. Buck

The rut hit hard here today in Virginia. Were going to have a frost tonight! I got in my stand at about 4:00 today and in about 10 minutes had two buttons under menearan acorn raining oak tree. After they moved on I grunted anda four pointer appeared behind me. This four was BIG and didn't have any brow tines! So I let him have it( I think he needed to be taken out of the gene pool!) Then after he died (clean shot) a few does crested the ridge so I grunted! Man you won't believe the monster eightthat busted threw and stopped right were I had just shot the four! Luckily I had alreadyrecocked my crossbow and snap I put one right threw his chest! He didn't even run out of view and stumbled over. Well thats it, one of my most exciting hunts. Yes it's now legal for anyoneto use crossbow in Va., Thanks Fish and Game or whomever decided on that one. I've already harvested five. Anyways he's at least 180 pounds anA-typical eight point withboth antlers identical, he's got mass, high tines, wide spread, I could'nt of dreamed of a better buck. I'm leading the big buck contest at my butchers facility. I hope all of you get lucky this year, remember to use estrus on scent cottons, and grunt!!

P.S. I'll post pics later my butcher took them!! "Gadell's in Catlett"

I harvested him with a 50cal.black powder at about 9:00 AM 04'.His doe came out of a thickit and milled around for about5 minutes and then he followed. He was very skittish I had 1 second to take him. Igrazed his chest hiting him in the eye (cornering away) and then with two more follow up shots he was down! Then his doe came by me and I took her too. Iwould have done good in the cival-war speed loading that powder!Anyways he's a main frame 10 withthree kickers(would of benfour but one's broke), split brow tine and a couple of character points! This bad boy is on the wall!!!!
Thanks
Dave Stevens

Man you must be super fast at reloading your smoke pole, Ive never heard of gettingthat manyshots off after a non vital hit on the first shot, Im impressed or intrigued at this amazing skill of yours.
