We just finished up our last big deer hunt for the year. Turned out to be more than a little interesting. A deer we had found last fall had disappeared with the start of the rut as they sometimes do. He reappeared about 10 days ago and settled into a pattern (almost). Anyway, our guest arrived and we started our hunt and the buck no shows ( figures right). Anyway the next day the deer shows and comes in and the guest passes on him........ Mind you this is a deer that has 36-37 inches of mass, will break 170 but is only 15-16" wide. So the hunt continues.This cold front coming and the weather has the deer acting weird. We change blinds and have a bunch of deer out front and to the side. The guest has been staring off to the side watching a deer at the water trough and finally says I think that may be a new buck (after watching him for 15 minutes). Quick glance-get your gun up and kill him. Trash points left g2, trash points right g3-tall heavy, chocolate massive body and now behind a multi trunk mesquite tree.... no shot. Slip back in that evening and he shows about 500 yds out on the fence line via the full moon. So we plan for the next morning... Go to the same blind......but go early and put extra corn out since the vehicle is not bothering him and hope for the best. Similar scenario -- there are deer everywhere. Two sets of eyes looking at everybody in the field multiple times and then there he is right in front of us at 130 yds! But wait- no doubt its a shooter but he's missing the extra goodies up top from the day before. A couple of kickers, lots of points, heavy, chocolate, wide get the gun up now.... I think our guest gets nervous if he rushes into the shot (about gave us a heart attack!!!) Anyway he made a great shot and this buck will look great on his wall! He taped out at 1796/8ths. A great way to end on a high note!
