Hunt In: Irion County
Default "Lopsided 9" ... October 2015

Irion County - 146 6/8" 9pt.
10/05/15

It's crazy how things work out sometimes. I killed my first deer when I was 12 years old and I've deer hunted every season since. Now 42, I finally killed a buck that has eluded me for almost 30 years of hunting.

I have seen and been around a lot of 9pts in my day but some how it has worked out that I have never killed one.

With each passing season it became a mission to kill one worthy of being my first 9pt.

I had two good chances in 2010 but I decided one was too young and the other one busted me and left without offering a shot.

I am very selective on what I chase each year. I try and give as much thought as possible into a buck before I try and kill him.

2015 is here....
I was now faced with a buck I have been waiting on for a very long time. I was unsure on his age and was guessing he could be 4.5-5.5.

I talked with a few guys on the lease and I made up my mind it was time to relax a bit and just have a little fun.

On 10/05/15 my quest came to a close.

I asked Jeremy if he wanted to ride out to the lease with me and watch my hunt from the gun blind. It didn't take long to get set up for the evening hunt.

The gun blind is on the edge of a pad next to a Pump Jack and my bow blind is down in the draw not far away.

About an hour into the hunt I get a text from Jeremy saying "He's 50 yards behind you trying to get your wind".

I remained motionless in my blind trying not to move or make a sound. I was hoping he wouldn't come in from that way.

Soon I caught movement out of my side window .... It was him. He was standing about 14 yards away being real cautious.

I tried to remain calm but I couldn't take my eyes off him. I will never forget that vision of him standing there. He was the perfect buck!!!!

He finally made his way in and that's when I got ready...Grabbed the HOYT and was soon aiming at the buck I call "Lopesided 9". I waited till he got quartered away and buried the
Wasp Jak-Hammer into that offside shoulder. It was all over in seconds as he covered the 70 or so yards and I heard the crash.

That's when I lost it. All the emotions took over. I was soon on my knees thanking God for everything and the ability to just spend another day out in his creation. I am very thankful!!!!

I know it's just deer hunting but I can't put into words how much this ole buck means to me.
He was well worth the wait !!!

Thanks again Jeremy for taking the pictures.

It was a blast watching it all unfold from the gun blind and you smoked that sucker too. Some give us the glory saying we are "well oiled machines" or that we are "great bowhunters" but we both know it's God's country Irion county and our ranch that we are blessed to hunt on. I've enjoyed every year hunting with you and Randall and with the signing of a new long term lease agreement it looks like we are just getting started my friend

Congrats,Brandon on a trophy class 9-point!!!!!
