Default Shot my biggest buck this morning!

This is my first yr on my brother in laws lease this yr in Blanco County. All 7 of us tried to make it up here this weekend, but only my brother in law and I made it. We have have been watching this young buck most of the summer and as hoping he would stay around. We don't get bucks this caliber or better very often so the majority of the hunters said take him you can.

Here's how it went down: He walks in directly behind my tripod and stops 8yds behind me scanning the feeder area where a doe, yrling and a slick 6 were hanging out. Cows ended up chasing him and a slick 8 off probably 6-7 times and were guarding the feeder! I drew on him once at about 8yds, but he turned and walked off. After jockeying with the cows for about a solid 20 mins he had enough and he slowly walks off behind me. Cows left a few mins later and a doe and her yrling who had been here all morning came back in. This guy came in shortly after. All the activity here this morning I had never a chance to range the feeder, but guessed 18 yds. He was actually at 14 yds. I held my 20yd pin low and spined him. He thrashed, then calmed down. As I was releasing the 2nd arrow, he thrashed again and my shot missed vitals. 10 seconds later my 3rd shot was money. I am steady as a rock during the draw, aiming and shot. But after the shot is when my buck fever kicks in. It was on full throttle for 20 minutes!! Thank you Lord for this opportunity and what you have blessed me with.
He is by far my biggest and is definitely going on the wall and he may not score high, but really makes it up in character!

15 scoreable points!







Now I'm back in stand trying for this guy. He was here yesterday evening!
