Well finally had a chance to hunt these deer, I was very scared he would break some points off. It was a very warm morning with bey fence fog, could see maybe 80 yards, maybe a bit less. My stand is about 200 yards away from the feeder where I got a few pictures of this buck,,, he only came in between 6:30 and 7:00 am. So I decided to sit on a chair around 80 yards from the feeder with the wind at my face. Got at there at 5:45 AM and walked to where I hoped it was around 80 yards and hands clear shot.

One hour went by and I started hearing grunts and deer running, I still could only see no more than 20-40 yards and just body's moving between the brush. I finally saw some antlers of a good 8 point in contrast against the fog he was chasing some does and grunting at 40 yards from me. Then the 8 suddenly got pushed and in my binos ,, the big deer just appeared,, shacking started I could only see the rack because it made good contrast against the fog. The deer came to 30 yards and when I tried to take the rifle I made a sound and he freezes and looks right at me, we stayed both frozen looking at each other for what I thought was an eternity,, probably about 5 minutes. But he didn't made me thanks to the fence fog. He walked away to about 80 yards and I couldn't see his body since I was on a chair at the ground. Got the rifle ready got up pointing but counts see him through the scope,,, needed a few more minutes of light or for fog to go down a bit. So I sit down and wait,, about a minute went by and I tried again and was able to see a body,, was about to shoot and I realize it was th eight point!!! It was so close,, moved the scope a bit and saw the big one and shoot instantly.

I was shaking like crazy as I didn't see what happend after the shot. I water 20 minutes and went to the spot I shot him, no deer, no blood, waited about an hour more to make sure the fog went down and he was 80 yards from where I shot him,, Many, many hours , years and season hopping for a chance like this,, I feel really blessed,, and got him on my birthday with my father and brother in the lease. Scored 185 gross.
