Went on my return hunt with PBGSO, the Axis rut was in full swing to say the least. The landowner had been seeing a group of good bucks several times week on a smaller Ranch on the river. So we gave it a shot, 1st evening around 7pm Axis started coming out of the wood work but were on the neighboring property so I patiently waited for them to come across the fenceline. Meanwhile I kept getting glimpses of several different bucks as they would disappear behind mesquite patches or in draws. At one point I could hear several fighting while watching another buck. My biggest worry was trying to focus on the right buck as one was noticeably wider and heavier than the others. As the daylight faded they made their way into a pecan Grove with around 20 smaller bucks and does. They began crossing the fence in a shadowed area around 8:40, 1 buck passed unable to get good shot I continued to wait then this buck stood and looked at my blind for 5 minutes as I fought with myself whether to shoot him or not knowing their was a bigger 1 but also thinking dang that's a good buck. I let the .300 wby. Mag go at around 100 yds, shot a little high and 2 the right as I was aiming at the white patch I could see clearly on his throat, hit his upper throat and come out his jaw, he actually made it 50 yds with an exploded jaw.

He went 35" on 1 side and 34" on the other. Thanks to Josh and Clay for being patient with me as I passed on several mediocre bucks the 1st hunt, their is a bigger, heavier and wider one their that I would love to go back and hunt for again.
