This weekend my morning hunts were great and my afternoon hunts sucked. Saturday morning the wind was NE and I was in my North wind tripod on my main feeder. Before it was light I had 5 or 6 deer on the chum line and one was charging and moving almost every one that got too close to him so I figured it was Crabby (a six year old Cull buck who is mean as hell) As soon as dawn began to break it was confirmed. More deer filtered in and every one that ventured too close to Crabby for any length of time got the business from him. I started my waffling again on whether or not to shoot him as deer movement was great and I kept thinking one of my bigger shooters might show up. Crabby kept chasing off every nice young buck that came in but when he charged an absolute great three year old that has a free pass from me this year...well enough is enough. As soon as Crabby got back into a shooting position I sent a Grim Reaper 22 yards through the pump house..."Watch "em Drop". . This ends a long history with Crabby. I think my son nick named him 5 years ago after the Sponge Bob character. Good riddance Crabby Patty.

LOL! Actually BF9 was on camera at one of my other sets that morning! Probably didn't want to be around Crabby which is another good reason for taking Crabby out of the equation grin
