Default East TX public land success !

After YEARS of hunting the same scrape line, Hundreds of miles put on my boots, countless hours in the stand I finally got lucky . I caught this fella easing through just after daylight on 11/13. I have several shooters on camera but I had never seen this guy . Biologist aged him at 4.5 and scored 137 7/8 gross.

Oh and I cheated and got him with my rifle ( I need every little advantage I can get )
