Thanks, Tarz!! You do pen a good yarn. Felt like I was right there!

While the buck is a "keeper" for its unique character, the real "trophy" may just be having reached that mature hunter point where you can step outa your hustle-bustle life so quickly and slip into "ultimate predator" mode!

Being able to "slow down" and become one with your instincts, recognizing those gut feelings and then having the maturity to heed them...

...dang, Hoss, that is the real trophy in this hunt IMHO. Excellent!

I remember walking into strange country as a much younger man and having that "sense" take over...now I fear I have "learned" enough that I try to "assess" versus "sense."

I'm a poorer man for it. My best congrats on going with your gut and having such a magnificant experience! [thumbsup]

Good Stuff! Good story telling and pics. I have to say the most impressive part for me was you were on the ground. Taking a mature white tail from the ground doe or buck is quite a task. Congrats again! Keep the good stories coming. Terry I have to ask? What is that animal in your avatar? I have squinted and stared and just can't tell?

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. TGMM ♥

Great writing, great buck Terry. Taking any mature whitetail from the ground is such a tough task. Being 'called' to a spot is such a real deal for me too. 3 three biggest whitetails I have ever killed came after I was headed to one stand, then my gut brought me to another. Good stuff there and thanks for a much needed hunting story boss [campfire]

I'm headed out for a bit...wont have access to the internet for a while, but wanted to add this...

I think those that have been lead by there gut know what I am about to say.

Heed it......its the pinnacle of confidence in hunting.

I found the same thing in bass fishing long ago...don't ask me, don't want to go down that road as its 'off topic'.....but trust me.

Back in my early years, I knew were I was going come hell or high water...and I was successful.

Nothing wrong with that....but don't doubt your gut. Hear me now...and learn early...when it calls, don't walk...but RUN. Yes, that can be taken literally as it was in this case.

Thanks for sharing the story, Terry! Good hunt & a good buck! Now I'm even more geared up for the fall! [archer] I'd much rather be out in the woods than here in the cubicle... but for now, I guess I've got to get back to work... <sigh>
