Only took me dang near 10 years but I finally shot a nice buck on public land. Got him with a crossbow at 8 yards, never knew I was there hunkered under a cedar tree. I'd tell you where it was but it only took me 10 years to find it wink

Funny thing is I have a lease near waco and I enjoy hunting public land more than there. It's more work but much more rewarding.

Congratulation on a nice one. Got a little dent on his left side. Unique for sure.

Thanks guys. I have learned so much about deer hunting from my public land experiences. He may not be 130 class but he is definitely my most prized trophy now. I can't tell you how many missed opportunities and deer I've spooked over the years trying to get one of these elusive bucks.

Congrats! In my small book any public land deer with bow or crossbow is good!
