My 2nd Buck 2013 (not a Trophy, but I'm Proud of Him)

Turn up the volume a bit so you can hear.

Here is a narrative of the hunt:

Got into the stand only 15 mins before this 6 pt showed up munching on some corn left on the edge of a sprouting wheat field in Gable, SC. Distance was 105 yards. Clear sky right at sunrise. Facing East into the sun toward the deer, the buck started to head South across the wheat to think brush. About one-third the way over, I called to him with a doe grunt on a Primo's Buck Roar call. On the third call he stopped perfectly broadside. Remembering what a friend told me about shot placement and "trusting the optics" I put the cross-hairs right on the base of his neck and squeezed off a 150 gr. Remington Core-Lokt 30.06 round, and he dropped right there on the spot.

The deer processor said he weighs 125 lbs prior to dressing.

Congratulations. Nothing like success.
Keep life simple...if you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.

Congrats on a good shot and better eating!

Do you live in Gable? I'm down off of I-95 in Hampton. I used to live up in Elloree and went to Sumter at least once a month to buy groceries.
