Legacy -The 2020 Season-

Well my kid got it done this afternoon.
Long story, short he wasn't even planning on hunting this afternoon. Around 130 he was inquiring about hunting. I told him he had two stands he could hunt with this east wind. He ask me which stand would I hunt. I told him I would hunt the set I hunted this morning. The other stand choice you may see more deer but the other one your bound to see the right deer. And boy did he see the right deer. Just as he was approaching the stand he saw a doe pop up. He dropped to one knee and then he noticed there were five bucks all around her. He picked out the biggest and let it fly.
Proud dad moment for sure. His biggest to date.

Great buck 

? I hit a huge buck tonight at 4:30 around 100yrds. He kicked and ran maybe 20 yrds lost sight in thick stuff. Was using .270. Hard to find blood was dealing with a down pour. Thought he went down. So didnt find anything. Going back in am to canvas woods. It would be 1st buck lost in a long time. When u hit a deer and the back end kicks up what does that mean?

November 22 pm
39 degrees
SE wind 5-15
Cloudy

Very short sit for me because as you all know my kid shot a deer. I thought I would still out a report up because although it was a short sit I still had some action. Honorable mention is that a couple of scrapes have been opened up again. Which usually tells me we are getting past the peak of breading. In my short time in the stand I did see a young buck tending a doe in the field just up from my stand.

Here's a hunting story.... No short version... For the last 10 days I've been down at a buddy's camp.... Been pretty slow... Saw a bunch of small bucks but nothing crazy.... Very few Does as they were herded up on the other side of the property...
Passed on 4 bucks yesterday and one early this AM. About 815 a decent 8 walked by me super close ( I had my eyes closed so he didn't look into my soul..... He was that close). As he got by me into a thicket, I took the shot... Admittingly it was a really bad shot. Buck hunched up... Wobbled then layed down.. 30 minutes of him laying in thicket not moving, I slowly club down. As I get to the bottom rung of my stand, I hear 3 crashes in the thicket... Dang it hes still alive!.... I knew he was in trouble, so I snuck back to camp... Paced the carpets, called some lifelines to talk me off the ledge and waited for friends to get back for assistance...
About 3 hrs later, we started the track... No blood! WTF! Found a fresh bed in snow... Then followed fresh tracks... There he is! Sitting up looking at me! As he was going to stand up I Raised up the .44 mag and let him have it.
First shot was a deflection off a branch. Bullet went into him in front of back leg, traveled forward and got the gut and liver.
What a week long adventure... Huge thanks to the Johnson Family for having me back down this year. Great friends... Lots of laughs... Getting a deer is a bonus1122201145.jpeg1122201144c.jpeg

Proud dad moment for sure. His biggest to date.

Great buck 
? I hit a huge buck tonight at 4:30 around 100yrds. He kicked and ran maybe 20 yrds lost sight in thick stuff. Was using .270. Hard to find blood was dealing with a down pour. Thought he went down. So didnt find anything. Going back in am to canvas woods. It would be 1st buck lost in a long time. When u hit a deer and the back end kicks up what does that mean?
