Default Blackbuck

Went out this morning to try to catch a Blackbuck that had been hitting a protein feeder several times during daylight hours.

Started out cold in North Texas with 34 degrees. For all situated with camera set up and now ready by 6:30. Turkeys were talking to the moonlight.

About 7 all the turkeys (about 30 or so)flew down and started fighting and running around.

About 20 minutes later the Blackbuck came through but didn't present a shot. About 30 minutes later he did the same thing again. At 8:30, I noticed him feeding just around the corner of the blind. Got the camera turned and release clipped on. He walked straight into the protein feeder and gave me a 19 yard slightly quartering away shot. I did not hesitate and smoked him! He made some good vertical jumps and made it about 100 yards. Got to see him wobble and go down in sight!

He was 19 1/4 straight line. He was an old herd buck that was getting past his prime.

Not as big as the one in my avatar, but a good one!

Love to hunt these things!
