The day after halloween, my father went back out to the area where I had killed my buck - we had cameras at two different stand sites, and we knew there were several other bucks in the area. He would change the cards in the cams, and see what we had for action. After work that night, I stopped at dads to see what he had on the cams - not suprisingly, there were a few pics from Oct 29 of the buck I had shot on the 30th, and a few of our regulars - a couple spikes, a 2.5 year old 9 point, and a nice young  5 point with about a 15 inch inside spread. We were however suprised to have several pics of a "new" buck - we dubbed him the wide six. He lacked brow tines, but had a nice size body, and a pretty rack that spread beyond his ears - we decided that this would be dads target buck. Plans were laid for the next morning....

Saturday morning dad picked me up well before first light, and we headed out to our spot. Legal shooting light was still ten minutes away when we got into our ground blind, and settled in to wait. For November second, it was a fairly mild morning, a nice morning to sit and listen to the sound of the woods coming alive. This is my favorite time to be on a whitetail stand - as the first gray of dawn appears, the animals and birds gradually come to life. For a few hours the only company we had was a few squirrels, and a couple of Gray jays, who seemed to be rather disappointed that we didn't have any breakfast to share with them.  Mid morning, nature called - it was time to get rid of a few cups of coffee! We got out of the blind and stretched our legs for a few minutes. Our plan was to stick with it all day - we knew if we put in the time, we had a good chance to get a crack at the buck we wanted, but again things developed faster than I anticipated! As we got settled back into our seats, I looked at my watch - it was 9:36. At 9:38 dad whispered "Theres a deer". A small doe had snuck in quietly, and was eating a few apples. We watched her for a few minutes, and then we both noticed movement in a stand of young poplars about 30 yards beyond the doe. "Another deer" dad said quietly. As soon as he said this I saw a glimpse of its head as it stepped between two trees."It's the wide six" I said. The buck went out of site, but the doe was locked on him, nervously staring in the direction he had disappeared. All of a sudden, she bolted - "Get your gun on the rest dad- he's coming in" I whispered. Dad just got his gun up on the rest, and looked through his scope when the buck appeared. From where I sat, I  could see the whole deer, but from where he was, he could only see part of it. After what seemed like an eternity ( always seems longer when you don't have the gun in your hand- it was likely only 30 seconds), the buck stepped ahead and gave dad the shot he wanted, and he dropped him in his tracks - awesome feeling to be there beside dad, sharing in the moment.

The rest of the morning was spent taking pictures and dragging - what an awesome way to spend a November Saturday with your father - he was a beauty of a buck - 180 lbs dressed and an 18 inch inside spread on his 6 point rack, memories to last a lifetime!

I was still hunting a nice funnel between a road and a cut on the other side.  It was approx. 8:45 when I heard crunching behind me and to my left.  I turned around and waited and shortly after seen his left side.  I seen good tine length and decided to take him.  He was about 60 yards away and walking fast.  I swung to the next opening and when he hit it I fired one off.  He ran and I fired another.  He stopped and was all hunched up and I fired 2 more.  I went down to where he was and found blood right away.  I walked maybe 30 yards and found him all piled up.  He ended up being an 8 point that went 164.

I had a very challenging year to say the least. I was recovering from penumonia while on dialysis and was not nearly in shape to beat the woods like i normally do. I had the last week off and forced myself to hunt through some thicker terrain - but only came up with a small spike to pass up. By end of week I had located a solid trail between two cuts with alot of use and had seen a 6 point and a doe. Went back on Friday for a final push and found a doe waiting for me when I arrived - natural bait. Waited for her to leave, ran a tinks line up the trail and 15 mins later this guy surrendered. Not the biggest buck I have ever shot by far, but one of the more rewarding!

Bucksnducks......that looks like Sweet Jesus for those angles.  Was this remotely close to where he used to frequent?

 

WAMT,

 

This is "Sweet Jesus".  Different deer.
