Default Finally, my first buck!!!

I've starting hunting seriously in since last year. Last year I seen some does and shot at a nice 8 pt. Got buck fever and missed that one. This year I got a trail cam and been getting pics of several bucks. A small spike, a nice 4 pt and a nice 8 pt. It's always about 10:00 at night. Yesterday evening about 4:30 the same 4 pt walks out that I've been seeing for the last few months on my camera. He was about 60 yards from my stand. Shot him with a Savage .270 and found him about 40 yards from where he was standing. Got him home, cleaned, cut up and now in the freezer. All the waiting was worth it. Man, what a feeling.
