Welllllllll i literally crawled in one of my stands on the way home about hour an a half before dark... went to a spot thatís perfect for south winds nice funnel along a field with mature oaks. slipped in quiet nothing was stirring but felt great none the less! Iím scanning when off to my right i catch movement i could see base of horns and what i thought was a little buck body. I texted my wife little buck... then i smelt him and it intrigued me cause usually young deer arenít that rutty, well he slowly started moving i thought the deer was maybe injured or possibly shoot the way he was walking all stoved up.. finally i see horns and his full face, and the light switches! Iím going to go back and see if i can find the deer i believe this old man is. Heís 7.5+ and run down as all get out! Was a beautiful day in the woods and i couldnít be happier to have connected on an OLD etx whitetail thatís slipped by no telling how many hunters over these years! Thank you lord!!




The texas leg is in the books.... next leg mexico opener!

Congratulations on getting a real nice ET buck! He's an old looking bruiser. The top pic looks like a magazine cover.
