Shot my best and most mature buck to date. Not a record breaker, but he's a good representation of what's on our lease. The first day I saw him I took two shoots and missed on both. Turns out my scope was off, but thankfully I always bring a backup rifle. I guess shooting suppressed also helps because he stuck around for 10-15 minutes after both misses.

I decided to hunt the same location the following day but he never showed, so I thought he had been shot or moved on. He finally showed up the next morning and I was able to put him down. That morning the bucks were chasing hard, so it made for a great show. After drooping my buck, a younger 8 and fork horn locked up under the feeder. After they separated, the young 8 approached my buck with his ears laid back and looked like he was going to engage my deer on the ground. The young 8 was easily distracted by a hot doe running through the shooting lane so he took off like a rocket. I decided to try my hand at rattling, and was able to rattle the fork horn out to the shooting lane. I decided it was time to go get my deer and exited the blind. Well the fork horn didn't budge, so I walked to within 20 yards before he snorted and ran off.



After I shot my buck, I decided to hunt for some turkey and hogs as well. I shot two pigs (recovered one) and put two turkey down. It was total luck, but I shot two turkey with one shot. The turkey literally walk within 10-25 yards of my box blind everyday. I decided I would take them from my blind since I wanted a turkey breast to smoke.


All in all it's been a great week. My daughter killed her first deer, hog and coyote this week too. The worst part is everyone is giving me a hard time about taking three shots to kill the deer.

No Sir it only took one shot to kill the Buck, those other two did not do anything clap
