Default 2018 buck down!

This is the biggest buck I've shot in a long long time. For years I let bucks go because they were too small or too young. I hunt a sort of small, LF, unmanaged property and this was the biggest buck I saw on the TC and on the hoof. I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to hunt this property and wouldn't change a thing. i just NEVER see these huge 5-6 year old brute bucks hunters kill on TV or the internet. i am very proud of this kill and not apologizing in any way, i am just recognizing the fact this buck is not a monster, a toad, a bruiser, a BBD, etc. etc. With that being said, I proudly dedicate this buck to the "average joe" hunter like myself...

Ok, thanks. This is the most I've ever written. I encourage everyone to video your kills. It's awesome. Be safe out there TBH and God bless.

That's a buck anyone would be proud of. Very nice shooting, hit him right in the lungs with the Grim Reaper. Once I saw that broadhead I knew he'd be down quick. Great video, great buck and very nice ending with those other bow kill shots. I give you TWO THUMBS UP! Thanks so much for sharing.
