Loc: Live in Katy, Hunt in Llano Co...
I saw this buck last year during the rut and let him walk. Then, I got a couple pics of him in October this year and decided he may not get a pass again if I was lucky enough to see him. I decided he'd be my primary target for this season.

The rut is kicking full bore right now, so I made a plan to hunt his part of the ranch. I picked a stand with good open views and good road to corn as the deer were ignoring feeders. The hunting was very slow Sunday and Monday, but Tuesday am I awoke to a heavy frost and temps right around freezing. Good sign. Sure enough, about 7:15 that morning I catch a glimpse a buck doing the rut trot through the brush about 150 yards out. I start watching the road where I expect him to pop out. As soon as he did I recognized him as the 10 I was after. But, now he was about 190 yards out and facing away from me so I made the tough decision not to take the shot. He was only there about a second before he was gone again, disappearing back in the brush. I wondered if I'd just missed my opportunity.

As the morning continued on, my head was on a swivel hoping he'd circle back. Sure enough, about 8:05 a doe pops out on the road corn, and he's trailing close behind. Soon he emerged broadside so I squeezed the trigger and dropped him. The doe took off at the shot,and to my surprise a second mature buck emerged right behind her! Never saw him! I guess he was hanging back waiting to see if the ten gave him a window of opportunity. All in all, it made for a fun morning, and always great to take a deer you have some history with.

Congrats on a fine buck, did the other buck look back and say thanks for taking him out.

First 8pt I shot in Texas was less than 15 yards trailing a doe. She spotted me getting the gun on him from the blind while he was rubbing on a tree about 5 feet from her. Shot the buck and she didn't even run off, just looked at the dead buck then at me as if to say thanks and walked off.
