Default Success I got my buck!!! with pics


Well, the whole story starts friday night. Friday evening around 6:00 I had a doe trot past my stand, right after she got past me I could hear a grunt and then another and another. A buck was grunting with every step while following her. No shot opportunity, he was about 30 yards out in some pretty thick underbrush. This stand is about 50 yards off some real thick bedding areas. So I decided to go back to that lock on this morning and hope to catch him on his way back through.

I didn' t see anything until around a 8:15 a doe and a fawn walk past my stand. I was hoping for a repeat of the night before but no luck this time, or so I thought. My buck came in at 8:20 and milled around about 60 yards out from me. He then started to work away from me out to about 80 yards and held up there under an oak tree for a good while.

My heart sunk as he started off walking away from me again, but as soon as I started feeling bad for myself he looped around another oak and started heading back in my direction. He came all the way back to 21 yards of my stand offered a perfect broadside shot at 9:22AM and I released. It was a complete passthrew and the arrow stuck 5 inches in the ground. I then sat there collected my thoughts then climbed down.

I walked over to my arrow to check it then gathered up all my equipment and carried it all back to the truck. I then called my brother to help track and the long drag out. We waited an hour and a half to get on the trail. He only went about 60 yards. He was estimated at check in to be 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 years old. I am damn proud too, I set a goal to take a mature whitetail buck and succeded This was my 8th hunt of the year, on the 13th day of the season.

That must have been the longest 62 minutes you ever spent in a stand. Congrats.
