Big Pa. Buck Down.

Well guys today was a good day in the Pa. woods. I had an encounter with a shooter Monday to no avail, so I returned to the woods today with high hopes. I decided to head out around 12 today as it was beautiful outside and I figured I would sit until dark. I was on stand by noon and within 5 mins. I had a spike and a doe come out about 50 yds. away. I sat watching them but kept hearing some leaves rustling around slightly behind me. I didn't see anything and figured it was a tree rat. I few mins. later I heard a a stick break and definate foot steps from the same area, no doubt a deer. I couldn't see anything but kept surveying the woods, finally picking out movement in the dense brush. All I saw was rack and I instantly went into serious hunt mode. From the little bit I could see, this was a shooter. I watched him in the brush only to see him heading the wrong way. My heart dropped, but just for an instant as he decided to turn around and head towards the field where the deer were feeding. To get there he had to cross 20 yds. in front of me, we were back on, the heart was in overdrive and the focus was on the shot to be made. I watched him disappear behind a bush and watched him moving through small opening taking his time to take in his surroundings. Finally after a min. his rack started to emerge and I came to full draw, a few more steps and I grunted him to a stop, settled the pin and let the arrow fly. He was quartering away but I saw the shot hit near the liver and angle forward coming out the other side. Now up to this point I had not counted points or payed attention to the rack. I knew he was mature and had great mass throughout what I could see of the rack. Back to the hunt, he took off like a bat out of hell tearing through the woods. I thought I heard him go down, but was not sure, checking the clock, I saw it was 12:30, I had hunted a whopping 30 minutes! I backed out and waited 4 hours to go look for him. My two friends and I tracked him for about 40 yds. picking up blood here and there, but nothing heavy. I looked up and saw him lying 30 yds. ahead. We were all surprised when I picked up the rack and saw he was a giant 6 Pt:jaw:. I had said P&Y when I told my friends about his size, as he looked huge from what I saw of him. I had him scored by an official scorer and he grossed 126 4/8. He nets 122 7/8 after deductions. All in all a bruiser of a 6 pt. I couldn't be happier!

Bigger pictures. Not big on the one in the cart, but gives a good idea of this deers size.
