I really didnít expect things to come together this week. It just seemed like the deer werenít moving and my target buck was making rounds somewhere else.

Things turned around this evening. I had five yearling bucks show up early. After awhile I texted Rod to see if he was seeing anything. After texting him I looked up and the big 8 was just standing there broadside at 17 yards!

From the time I saw him to the time I shot him was about 8 seconds.

Then the shakes set in! I tried to text Rod again but was having difficulty typing. This is the best free range buck Iíve killed with a bow in 23 years of hunting.

My arrow had sliced right through him and had good blood on it but there wasnít any immediately on the ground. Turns out I was looking down the wrong trail. He didnít go 100 yards.

Most of the time I hunt alone so it was extra special that Rod was there to hunt, track and recover him with me.


Thatís a great deer. Congrats! What broadheads are you shooting, btw?

Slick tricks! Iíve taken over a dozen deer with them and Iíve yet to be disappointed.
I hunted with Magnus stingers for a long time but the STs fly better for me.

Awesome deer! Love the color on those antlers. My brother killed a deer with similar kickers on the G2s. I have always liked that trait.

Glad that you were able to get that big boy down Courtney! Definitely one of the best deer that have come off of the ranch in a long time! Iím guessing Rod is thinking he brought you the good luck since he wouldnít show over the weekend

Thanks y'all!
I'll score him when I pick up the cape and horns next week. I think most people are over-estimating him. He's a very small bodied deer. Inside spread is only 15."
I think he'll go 130 though.

If you add in those abnormal points you can squeeze out a couple more inches.

This was what I was getting at. 146" eight points are pretty rare; especially in the Texas hill country.
