Since October 1 I haven't been much a husband or father and while patience was abundant in the beginning, I sensed the natives around the house were getting restless so it was time to put one down and spend a little more time with the family. I've seen bigger bucks this season but I am happy and grateful to have this one in the freezer.

The temperature last Friday morning was 12 degrees - awfully cold for this flatlander. I settled in my stand around a hour before daylight and began seeing deer coming to the food plot around 8:00. From then on, not a hour passed without activity.

At 4:00, a buck came in and I decided to take him. After he turned broadside, I drew back and released. Once the Buzzcut traveled the 18 yards it took to meet him, the buck did the prettiest double-lung buck I've ever seen, then made a mad dash for 50 yards and fell over deader than a doornail.



Didn't waste much time putting him to good use...

Dude, I am going to say you earned that one. 1 hour before daylight until 4 pm on a 12 degree day. Way to "Iron Butt" it.

I am hoping this front today will get them up and moving this afternoon. I will be in my tree.

It's actually a S2 (good 'ol switchback with new name) that I got from Campo earlier this year. With the damper the bow is as dead in the hand as any I've ever shot.

Nice buck, but you overcooked the steaks:wink:
LOL, I knew when I posted that picture that someone would comment on that! They weren't as bad as they looked, it was the camera flash making it look worse :wink:


Thanks for all the kind words guys
