I couldn't hunt for 2+ weeks because I've been recovering from COVID-19, so I'm calling this my "COVID Buck". After getting cleared, I wasn't able to get out to our lease in Round Mountain, TX until Sunday afternoon. I played the wind right and the deer were focused on the corn (the ranch is dry as tinder and we are carrying a lot of deer, so I think food sources are drying up). Saw some pseudo rut behavior (maybe because of the excess of does?), which surprised me, and a couple of bucks did some half-hearted sparring. After about an hour, this guy showed up and aggressively tried to push the other two bucks there (a young 10-pt and a younger tall 8-pt that's going to be a stud next year) off the corn. One shot from the trusty .270 and he dropped right there, I was grinning ear to ear! Until, I realized, I'm at the ranch by myself and I'm going to have to lift this toad unto a cargo carrier on the back of my lifted Land Cruiser! It took some creativity with a ratchet strap but I got it done! Super excited to take this buck, I got a ton of meat off of him and plan to do a skull mount with the rack.

Nice one! There are some great deer in that area and really pretty country. I've used the strap trick myself!

Outstanding! I've started to realize I'm not as young as I used to be, I see the need to devise a plan to be able and load deer by myself in the future. Luckily, I can still hoist them in the back of the truck or ranger. Although its getting a little risky at time with all the crap in the back. I have to clear a spot to stand and then pull the antlers up to the tailgate, with rope tied to them, then i can heave em in the back.
At times I envision myself having an accident and falling out, keeps me hyper aware of what I'm doing though.
Glad to see you were successful on your hunt cheers
