Default Public land buck

I was fortunate enough to take this buck on public land yesterday. Watched him travel about 60 yards as he dropped down into the creek bottom where I was set up. Waited until he was at 15 yards to take the shot as I wanted to be sure he was legal. Smack in the middle of the day, he came in at 1:30p during what was planned as an all day sit. Love the crab claw!

very true, just have to stay after them. I've seen some good ones but the 13" rule has dumped me every time. The good ones keep their heads down and rarely to the side.
