Default East Texas public land success

I got a nice 8 point on public land Sunday afternoon with my 7mm-08. I shot him at 2:00 running a scrape line. Getting him out of the woods definitely showed I'm not in my prime anymore! The gamecart definitely made it easier! You gotta love it when a plan comes together!

Awesome buck, any legal buck on public is a trophy. Would that be Coffee Mill by any chance? If so that buck is even better, that’s a tough hunt.

Admit it… You were hoping there was a crowd boaters and fishers at the boat ramp when you got back in. I would have been. Congrats on a great east Tx public land buck!
