Hunting this weekend at our place near Dime Box in Lee county, he came out... It was a perfect morning, I woke up before my alarm, got to the blind early, fired up the heater and within minutes, he showed up. I was amazed since I haven't seen him on the cams very often, maybe once every 2 weeks. In fact, I really didn't think I'd get a deer this season at all since I can't shoot does in Lee county, I don't see many big bucks and I haven't seen any spikes this year on the cams.

When this buck came out, I was shocked, the rack was so large I didn't even have to think about lining up the ears, it was obviously over 13". (Turns out he was 16.5" and 135 lbs). The picture makes the rack look larger for some reason. I decided since he was my first (I started hunting 3 years ago in my 50's), I'd have him mounted, so 8 months from now, I'll have a nice trophy. I've got 55 lbs of meat to deal with now.

I also shot a hog on Saturday, so might mix up some venison, wild bore sausage with store bought pork fat!

That buck is a stud! Congrats, that's certainly an experience you will never forget. I remember my first big buck vividly and have been chasing that feeling ever since.
