Default Got my target buck.

I hunted six sets and finally got it done. This Buck was smart and very skittish.
I got busted by other deer and a Havalina on several hunts. He slipped in after a nice older eight point was in his feeder space. He was preoccupied with the eight and I was able to get a shot. He’s not my best buck but will make a great mount that is different from my other ones.
