Default Took off work Monday morning...paid off with a nice non typical!

Iíve been watching this deer all summer, but he mostly showed up at nights except for Monday mornings. He stayed on the same pattern for weeks, so Saturday and Sunday I stayed out of his area until Monday. He ended up walking directly underneath my tree around 7am. I stayed calm until I let my arrow fly...once I saw I smoked him my nerves took over. He ended up running 30 yards and crashed insight. Havenít had him officially scored yet, but I measured him a few different ways and looks to be in the 160 range. If thatís accurate or not I have no idea...this deer was confusing as hell to measure.

Helluva deer and putting a plan together and watching it unfold had to be greatness.


Wonder what had him scooting through during the day light on Mondays all summer. Yall have a lot of folks on the property on the weekend during the summer too?

No idea...the property is pretty quiet. I found it odd myself.

Congrats!! Helva buck!! I shot one that resembles him but you got me beat. I certainly could not score mine due to so much complication. I been wanting to have him officially scored because he may make P&Y.

You can't shoot something like that without giving us a few more details! What part of the state did he come from? East, north, south, central??
