I ranged the doe @ 45 yards as she left and turned in the lone Wolf for a shot if that was my only shot.

Then he did what I’ve never heard… the “roar”!!! He’s 60ish in front of me somewhere and “RD” is 60 behind he and it scared him it was so loud. Like a 5yo had a buck roar call and you told them try and break it screaming. Red stagg type roar.

When I heard that I figured he might respond to a snort… and he DID!

I finally get to see the buck and at 45 yards at waters edge I’m not WOW impressed… but plan on shooting. I can tell he had sooommmmeee mass

At the waters edge and posturing sideways it was shoot or try and complete with a real doe, I settled pin and sent the inadequate 415gr SlickTrick on a crash course!!!…. My longest whitetail shot by 13 yards.
All looked perfect!… until arrow reached the 38ish mark, and like slow motion I see the muscles flex and the belly dropping. Seems like an hour passed in flight…. WHACK!!!!
Drops in his tracks!!!! With another ROAR!

What a train wreck guys sorry….

Well I got a buck! But in all honesty I wasn’t on top of the world. I figured I just shot another just under…120”ish. So I waited over an hour then climbed down and packed up to go see what I had and wait for “RD” to meet me

All packed up, I crossed the water and through the tall grass and it hit me! OH MY! This is way better buck that I dreamed!

I looked back at my tree which seemed like 1/3 a mile away and there was “RD”. He didn’t know what I’d shot but heard it all and figured another pig. We both just starred in unbelief at the beams and mass. I owe him so much for years of teaching and scouting
And it kept growing!!!

I had done it! P&Y on public with a slick 8

With short tines, “Public Enemy” sported 26” beams!, 19” inside spread and 5 2/8” bases and carried it all the way!

140” slick 8!
I took 2 coolers, for a few deer…. He completely filled a 75 brute and a 45 rtic. Awesome trip with good friends. Sorry bout this drag out… but there are some pics

Proper nutrition is essential when hunting “Public Enemy”. They had some Cardi B ones…. but I was a little Leary of what flavor they were.
