Great buck!
Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie, cheat or steal. These things are for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. And never allow thoughts of gain to lead you into the pursuit of evil.

Congrats on an awesome buck! Nov 11 (Veterans Day) is one of my favorite hunting days. Almost every season I bag a decent buck 9-12 Nov, but decent to me has half the points of that one. Great job!

WOW is an understatement! :shock: What an absolute beautiful monarch. Congratulations on your awesome buck! :thumbup: .....now don't leave us hanging. Bring us on that hunt with you. Tell us about the area, your setup, blind, treestand, etc.. Time of day, prelude to the shot....you see where I'm going with this. I'm sure we'd all love to hear about it. :wave:

I was hunting on the farm I have been hunting on for 30 yrs with my good buddy Joe
Set up in a ground blind on top of a ridge overlooking a swamp
As it broke daylight We had a parade of deer down the ridge
At 730 Joe grabs me Big Buck Big Buck as he came out and made a scrape just out of range of my blind
Closing windows and opening the other side windows of the blind Joe reached into my hunting pack and grabbed my range finder and his Primos Can call and handed it to me
I called 2 times and the big fella started coming towards us
I ranged him at 43 yards
I had to stick my head and shoulders out threw the window of the blind as the buck was headed away from us
I stopped him with a bleat and took aim and squeezed the trigger
And watched my arrow disappear behind his shoulder he jumped did 2 big leaps and crashed into the brush , I tore off out of the blind toward the downed buck thinking a just shot a big 8 point ,
I said to Joe look at this nice 8 point as I grabbed his head out of the brush
I looked down and seen points everywhere I fell to my knees started shaking I started counting 16 points I couldn't believe it
I could barely move him thanks Joe
Had found us a deer cart and it took all we could to get him loaded up ,
it will be a day in the deer woods I will never forget
