I started hunting this buck in October of 2013, and he was the most illusive I've ever pursued. I had literally hundreds of game cam pictures of him, but I only saw him once from a stand during 2013. This year, I put my cameras back out in mid August, and my buck showed back up on September 21st. He was big last year, but on camera, he looked to have gained several more inches. I basically put my life on hold to hunt this buck. I got hundred of game cam pictures again this year and had four close encounters, but I finally closed the deal on the evening of October 24th. He came in just before dark, and I shot him at 22 yards with my crossbow. He ended up being at least 6.5 and grossing 173" as a 10 point, and he weighed 275 pounds. He is my second highest scoring buck. I killed a 178" 14 point 10 years ago.


I also killed my first tom turkey. He was an old bird with a 10" beard.

That's a Excalibur Matrix 380, and it's a great crossbow.

I contribute much of his gain to adequate rainfall after 4 years of drought, and he did it all on his own with no supplemental feeding. I own 360 acres surrounded on two sides by cow pasture and two sides by federal wetlands.

I have a couple "up and comers" on camera, and I'm planning to plant about 50 acres of food plots this spring. I would like to improve my odds of another good buck next year.

He had great genetics and age. Those 2 are really made a huge difference along with the good rainfall this year.
