Default Did something this evening that I have not done in 7years and 12 days

It has been that long since I killed a deer on my property in Smith county. October 26, 2011 is when I killed the buck in my avatar
https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...d.php?t=244087

It was lightning when I got up this morning at 4:20 so I let the dogs out and put on a pot of coffee

Checked the radar and sure enough there was rain coming, so I waited it out. It was 7 before it let up
I normally bow hunt at the house but this morning I decided to take my old 270 since I was going to be sneaking into my stand after light
I saw 7 does/fawns

When I headed out this evening it looked like it might rain so I took the gun again.

Slew, Charlie6delta and I have an ongoing text message. Telling each other what we are doing, usually while the other 2 are stuck working.
I joked that the buck I was after would probably come out within bow range since I had the rifle

A little after 4 I spotted a deer crossing the field in front of me. It was a buck and it stopped behind a bunch of brush and I could see it was working a scrape under a cedar where I had seen another buck this past weekend

When he stepped out I knew it was the buck I had been after
And then he turned and trotted straight at me and when he stopped he was 22yds straight down wind and acted like he had no clue I was sitting in a tree right above him

I’m sure some would have let him go another year but he is mature, I’ve had pictures of him off and on for at least 3 years. I will post pics of his teeth when I get him cleaned up
