I took vacation this week to hunt up in Childress at my lease up there and shot a nice buck but couldn't find it so I decided to come home frustrated and miserable. I was going to go back to work Monday and not take my vacation. I got up Sunday morning and went and got in my bow stand and had this beast show up but wouldn't give me a shot so needles to say I had a task ahead of me and took my vacation and played cat and mouse with him all week trying to get a shot. I would see him everyday but no shot I even had some really nice bucks come in that I would have shot if I never laid eyes on this guy.
He was always with a group of does and followed them where ever they would go. The little bucks kept them off the feeders so I started hand throwing corn and as u can see it worked. It took me almost all week but I got him and couldn't be happier. Wasn't able to get him into bow range so I took him with rifle.
He was 165lbs

I wouldn't have have quite my job over him but luckily I wouldn't have to I'm the the boss. Lmao
I also cleared my vacation with the VP. The same VP I hunt with sometimes and we never go back to work when we are suppose. Lmao
I truly have the best bosses in the world they are all hunters. Hell the senior VP has been chasing a giant of his own. I have never been chewed on for Bering late or not being at work but have heard a few words for working to much and not hunting enough.

That's what everyone says. Lol
But it's not just about the hunting up in Childress I have always hunted with my brothers and hunt with them up there and our kids grew up hunting together and since I moved to San angelo I don't get to see them as much. Plus as an added bonus I get to shoot a 3rd buck. Lol
