I haven't shot a nice one in about 6 years but finally connected last weekend.

I was hunting an oat field that has a lot of doe activity. I got in the stand around 2 and immediately saw deer chasing about 200 hundred yards off in some thick stuff. Finally an 8 came into the open...pretty average for our place. Then a comparably bigger 8 stepped out which was clearly the dominant. They fought for about 20 seconds (first fight I've ever witnessed) until the larger buck won out and took off into the thick stuff after the doe.

After an hour of nothing I thought the chance had passed. The buck then showed up around 4 in the same general area but stayed on the move. He disappeared to my back-right, only to reappear from the back-left a few minutes later. He was on a quick trot and crossed the oat field without stopping and was out of sight again. I figured my chance was surely over at this point.

Fast forward to 5:45 and he came out from my right at another quick pace. He was heading to a group of doe about 400 yards out, so I knew I had to stop him quickly. I pulled the gun up and grunted 3 times before he finally stopped. I connected and will soon have a freezer full and a trophy to boot.

I hope these show up - haven't posted pic in a while.

The field I was hunting:

Thanks guys. It's a good place to hunt and a great place to just sit and watch once the wheat is in.
