Great buck and a great story. This was when most folks were not worried about management, more about the hunting experience.
Adios,
Gary

So true! 25 years ago I was hunting out of a tripod or fork of a tree close to game trails, no feeders just one with nature up

It was not in TTHA as far as I know. It was in the Dallas Morning News, Fairfield news paper, and at least one book by Ray Sasser.

LOL! No he kept bowhunting and he shot a pretty nice 10 point about 7 years later as well. He has traded the compound for a crossbow now though.

Now, how in the world did he kill that native Central Texas monster wearing that old school camo with no "Dead Down Wind" sprayed all over him? For goodness sakes, he doesn't even have any paint on his face. Photoshop......this just couldn't have happened! LOL.

Thanks for bringing back some memories.

Awesome and great story. I hunted Freestone about 20 years ago for a few years and never saw a good size buck.

Thanks for sharing. Cool story and fond memories of those old hunts and woodland camo. I still have a bunch of those old clothes in a box, I know they'll still hunt. Great Buck!
