Tagged out on bucks...shot an nice 8 pointer.

Postby Eight_Oak_Acres » Fri Dec 05, 2008 7:10 am

Shot a nice 8 pointer tuesday night. He is not the monster I have been after, but with second gun season starting on thursday, and hunting being tough already because of first gun season...I decided I would take the next nice deer that gave me the opportunity.

I sat in a stand I hadn't sat in yet right on the edge of some timbered river bottom. I watched a couple bucks spar a little...then saw a couple does and a buck feeding in the timber...when this guy showed up. I put a great heart shot on him, and followed a great blood trail through the snow right to him. He made the last 20 yds. tough by crossing the river, but we got him.

He has a broken G-3 on his left side but he is still a great deer and I'm very proud to have taken him.

Great buck, congrats!

Nice work.  He's a "shooter" any day of the season!

Nice deer.  But I'd be smilin' after shooting him.
