Default Deep South Texas Full Velvet Buck Down

Well boys. Im a blessed guy for sure. My childhood friend thats like a brother to me called me yesterday afternoon for a last minute hunting lease invite. The plan was not to hunt but more to get camp, blinds cleaned and do a deer survey. He told me to bring my bow just incase. Upon arriving he was told the survey would be late afternoon instead of morning. So we pulled some camera cards to see whats showing. He decided to let me sit this morning at a blind that had a mature 9 point he wanted taken out. Last pic of him was a week ago still in full velvet. Well at day break today he shows up. My jaw fell when I saw him still in full perfect velvet. At 18 yards my arrow hit its mark. He only made it 60 yards. A big trophy for me in many ways. To our surprise he scored a lot more than we thought he would.
9 point 145" full velvet zapata county low fence buck with a bow. Super proud of this one.
