Congrats man, you're doing something right to have 3 opportunities at mature bucks in east texas with a bow in a single week. Did you get any trail camera pics of the new guy?

Lol. I'm not a selfie expert but I believe it puts pics in mirror image. I hated not having anyone there to take pics of me and the deer.

Correct...when you use the camera on the front of your phone (selfie camera) it reverses the image.

Thanks. I've learned a lot over the years reading your posts on patterning mature bucks. I always enjoy your posts.
Agreed...there is a wealth of information to be gleaned from quite a few people on TBH, with GarGuy being at the top for me as an avid Pineywoods fan

Great write up and congratulations on your buck, Josh

Great buck, gotta love it when a plan comes together. Great job tracking him down too. I'm curious to know why he didn't bleed much or leave more sign?

It would have exited low on the body at basically the arm pit but the broadhead hit backside rib. I was high and he was close so there was a good angle. Both lungs were destroyed.

Just to add a pic to the history on this deer, here is a pic of him last September. This was the following season after the neck shot by Bro-n-law.

Also I hate how the pics don't do this buck's body size justice. Here is a pic from few weeks ago beside one of the up and coming 3 year olds.

I should have some good trail cam pics of him from the last several days. When I get back up there tomorrow night I'll check the cards and find one.

It was WAY longer than I intended, that's for sure. I got caught up in typing the story and when I was done, I couldn't believe how long it was. Didn't mean to write a novel lol.
