This is a deer we have watched for 3 years. I posted a thread a few weeks ago about him.

I checked the game cams Monday afternoon and seen where he was on there with 2 does. I took my gun and sat in that blind that evening.

We have never seen any deer move across a dry pond bed, so I wasn't prepared for them to come that way. It happened very quickly.

He was trailing 2 does at 5:00 pm, and I had a small window. I didn't make a great shot. Followed up with another one, breaking his front right leg, and tried to get a 3rd in him before he hit the thick woods.

We found blood but we decided to not push him. I called a friend/ TPWD biologist if he could assist me this morning.

We met at 6:00, and hit the trail. Within an hour and only 200 yards from where we quit trailing him the dogs got him up and I was able to put one in him that ended the chase.

Glad he his not suffering and glad we backed out and brought the dogs in.

Thx guys. I got maybe 2 hrs sleep last night.

I thought this buck was 5.5 but his jaw says he 6.5. Biologist agreed also.

Lotto, yes. He was on their butt too. Seen a buck chasing Sunday night too, in the vicinity of where I shot this deer. Could not tell if it was him though.

Good buck and I hate when as much as I hate when a deer gets wounded I do love running behind a good tracking dog.
