Iíve seen signs the east Texas woods are heating up , so I was very excited to hunt this north wind. I had a new mature buck that had showed up several days ago but I needed a north wind to hunt the stand. I get on stand at 4 pm today and this stud strolls in at 4:15. He acted like he winded me and left two times in spite of the perfect wind, but he came back. I actually blew the shot, however the Lord smiled on me and the slick trick took out his Carotid artery. I am so very thankful!!! Best buck ever! Itís better to be blessed than good!

Van Zandt, and you are right about church, Iím leading worship in the morning! I really wanted to get a deer in October so that I could have a bit more time for additional fall pursuits in beautiful East Texas! My favorite time of year!!!

Jay played this down as luck but I know better. He has been putting in the work and doing it right. I have seen the bucks he passed the last couple of years.

What a well deserved blessing for one of the good guys. Congrats.

Have you scored him yet?

My personal best was my personal worst shot ever. Buck chasing a doe in circles around me and just wouldn’t stop. When he came to a momentary pause in front of me I let one fly at about 18 yards and he immediately spun and the arrow went between his back legs severing his femoral artery. He went 30 yards and laced down and bled out very quickly. Yes God has the ability to help us out of a self inflicted jam from time to time. Again congrats on your success.
