Itís been a fairly slow season battling sweat and mosquitoes, but deer seem to finally be moving with this nice cool weather.
Iíve had a bad run of luck early in the season. It seemed like I busted out deer every time I walked in, no matter what time it is. I think this is why I havenít seen much while on the stand.
This changed on Wednesday. I slipped into the stand nice and early after throwing out a bucket of hand corn. After a couple hours of boredom, the deer started to appear. About 6 does showed up first, followed by a young 6 pointer that thought he was in full rut, running one doe after another, with nobody wanting to participate. All this entertainment almost made me miss this buck walk into my shooting lane and start eating corn. He is a buck that we saw several times last season, and passed due to age. Boy Iím glad we did! He presented me with the perfect shot at 15 yards and I sent a GrizzTrick right behind one shoulder and out through the opposite shoulder blade. Got to watch him fall. Solo hunting so no professional pics.




This is a picture I took of him last year out of the pop-up.

Very nice bruiser buck. Congratulations on getting him in the middle of the week. Maybe one like that will give me a chance next time out. That's one anybody would be proud to have.
