Thumbs up A week later, my best buck yet!

I am so blessed to have been able to shoot a second good buck! This is my first one, and he was my best for a week! https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...d.php?t=711164

This one is a Milam Co buck from the lease I share with Dusty Britches and her step-son. It's low fence, low acreage of 80 acres. Combined with my sister's place, we have 160 acres.
I went down to shoot some pigs, but they pulled a Houdini and were no where to be found. My sister suggested I hunt from her tripod. She drove me out in her scooter and I threw out some corn by hand. I could see our food plot through two shooting lanes, one on the left and one on the right. A big cedar tree was directly in front of me, blocking the view.
After sunup, the does started appearing in the food plot. Soon after I could see a nice mature 8 point chasing them. Then I lost sight of them because of the big tree. Suddenly, several does appeared to my left, eating the corn! They started looking behind them and I knew the buck was coming. They ran off and the buck walked by, but I couldn't get a shot on him due to the small openings.
After he left, I used a doe bleat once and switched to a buck grunt twice, then finished with a doe bleat. Then I put it away. A few minutes later, the buck came back to see what I was offering!!! I quickly drew my bow, and the arrow was perfect. He was quartering away hard, but he only went 40 yards!
I feel so blessed and lucky this year!! Earlier this year, my husband won a Rambo bike with game cart! It was sure handy this weekend. The buck weighed 165#, and we couldn't get him in the scooter. We slid him onto the cart and it was an easy carry to the house!

Thanks everyone!
If you are wondering, the Rambo bike is an electric assist bike that was designed by hunters for hunting. It's a bit heavy, but it handles all terrain very well. After a few near-wrecks I got to thinking... I'm riding this bike, off-road in the dark through hog rootings and wallows. What could possibly go wrong?? So I bought the helmet. Got to protect the noggin! The bike will reach up to 25 mph. It pulled the deer on the cart so easily I had to look back twice to make sure it was still there! I also passed my sister in her scooter!
When we won it, I thought no way would I spend the money to buy one of these. Now I am thinking we really need a second one, because this thing is amazing! It is so quiet and stealthy. I keep a big section of camo burlap in the saddle bag and I can lay the bike down at the base of my tree or tripod and cover it with the burlap. The deer don't even look at it!
