So we drove up on the 7th. Ethan couldnt get off work until nearly 9pm so we made it around 130am. It didn't matter, the forecast had us so jacked up to get in the tree we rolled in with a smile. That forecast was awesome, lows in the 20s and highs in the 40s. No rain, and no major wind. Thats a forecast that is hard to beat in November.

The first morning was a slow one for me. We sat on the lease, mainly to check the cameras and see what all had shown up. I never saw a deer while in the tree, ethan had saw several little bucks pushing some does, and Dad had a similar report.

I noticed that the scrape i had put my camera on was being wore out, so I was excited to see what the card held.

There was several good bucks on camera including one massive bodied 8point we named "goonie" because his face was lopsided. No monsters, but some mature deer for sure. This lead me to go back to the same scrape, even though i was the only one that didnt see deer that morning.

During the middle of the day, i made sure to make a quick run to that public land funnel to make sure it was still hot, this is what i found. That is my size 11 boot in the bottom of the pic...

 -

About 430 I had a nice 9 point come by, in NC he would have been headed to the house, but not up here. He came by at 8 yards and gave me all kinds of shots. After he got through torturing me he headed ethans direction. Not longer later i get a text saying that the buck had made a B line for his scrape and tortured him as well.

Here he was...

 -


So after dark we headed for supper, and i couldnt decide if i wanted to head to the public land or back the lease on thursday. I had been talking to Logan Glassburn all day, and i asked him WWLD...What would Logan do? He laughed and said he would head to the public land, he said there was just something about a big public land buck.

So i decided i would head to that funned i had found

Daylight came early, i had finally felt the effects of that real late night getting in the day before. But i was still pumped, i had a great feeling about the morning.

I got in the tree right in time, the tree was perfect. I had tons of cover and really felt like i was going to be seeing deer all morning. I was wrong. Didnt see a single deer until after 9am, a little buck came through, with about 30 turkeys behind him. Wasnt what i was looking for, but hey, at least it was something!

About 20 minutes later a spike stolled by and i began to think it might just be a late starting morning. It was then I heard a couple steps down to my left, i looked over and finally saw the deer making the steps, i knew right away i was going to shoot him if he came my way.

What happens next took 22 seconds. I know that for a fact, because its all on camera.

So i got stood up as the buck was trotting my way. He looked just like a beagle on a rabbit, nose glued to the ground darting back and forth. He came through the funnel just as planned, and when he stopped he was at about 10 yards slightly quartered away.

I was at full draw, but there were some little limbs between me and him, knowing how thick it is all aroubd him i decided to try and squeeze one through them. After that i went black. Id like to say i aimed, picked a spot, or anything really, but i didnt. O simply webt into auto pilot. Next thing i knew that black eagle arrow was buried to the label perfectly behind the shoulder a d he was tearing off. Up until this point i wasnt nervous, never had time to before the shot, but boy i lost it afterwords. I knew i had made a great shot on a good, mature buck, what kind of buck i had no idea. I honestly was sure i had shot a 120in 8point.

I gave the deer about 30 minutes. And by give the deer 30 minutes i mean i calmed down enough to get that summit climber down the tree safely.

Aaron met me at the bottom of the tree. He knew i had shot and beat me to the ground lol. We decided that we would look at the blood, if it was bubbly we would track, if not we would wait. We found the first blood and sure enough, all bubbles and sprayed on saplings.

The track wasnt a long one, actually had it not been thick i would have seen him go down. As i got closer to the downed buck i began to realize this wasnt the 120in 8 i thought it was, i had just killed my biggest buck ever.

When we found the buck all aaron and i could do was stand speechless. I had absolutely no idea that buck was like that. I know thats hard to believe but its absolutely true.

After plenty of pics and video, we got introduced to the joys of dragging out a midwest buck...gooooddddness it was ridiculous, my back still hurts!!

What a week we had! My ribs still hurt from laughing.

Equipment notes: #41 Omega Native Black
Eagle Outlaws, tipped with a single bevel Grizzly.

Thanks for following along and being patient with me! As i said we are still on the road and that place had zero service. Hope you enjoyed reading it as much as i did reliving it!! Good luck to all you guys the rest of the fall!!
