    It’s been 11 yrs since I have filled a buck tag. I have been a little picky and let quite a few walk, shot and missed one of the widest bucks I have ever saw with my bow 6 years ago and shot and was not able to recover a big 8 2 years ago. My goal has been to shoot a big buck with my bow for a long time. Last year we purchased 40 acres and my wife harvested her first deer ever and with a bow. The day before gun I saw all 3 of my shooter bucks but couldn’t close the deal. Never saw them again after gun opener. This year I started off with no bucks in camera during summer but knew once October got here I would have a few pop in seeing as how I have a doe factory. I took my wife out the first part of the season and then I started middle of October. Like last year I saw a nice buck yesterday cross my field while I was in for a quick snack. I was thinking here we go again. I went to bed last night with my 2020 buck tag tucked away and ready for doe patrol. This morning I sat next to my barn and watched both my fields for cruising bucks or does. I saw 9 total but nothing I wanted to shoot. At 1230 I headed to my stand hopeful of seeing a buck cruise by but ready to take a doe. At 430 a buck I got to see yesterday crossing my beans behind me came through alone. 60 yd shot 25 yd recovery. Was all shook up even though it was with a gun. So blessed and thankful just to be able to enjoy Gods creations. Sorry for the long post but like I said it’s been 12 years.

    Mine come in sideways from my phone too. I usually pull them up on laptop after and rotate them. Congrats on a great buck.

    Congratulations brother. Nothing like knocking one down on your own farm to break the drought.

    Congratulations! Great buck. I snapped my 15 year dry spell yesterday but nothing as impressive as that. Next year I'll be back to trophy hunting. Just got tired of tag soup. After does from here on out. Again, congrats!

    Very nice deer. I have been looking forward to this post. I really enjoy seeing that first good buck taken after a new property purchase. Good stuff!
