Went for a little still hunting and scouting trip this morning after an uneventful morning hunt. I was walking in to change some batteries in a couple cameras and heard some scratching in the leaves. Could be for sure what it was but i thought it was turkeys. I peeked over the top of the ridge where my blind feeder and camera was bit didn't see anything so I started over the hill. The hill is real steep so I was sliding down on my butt. I got to the first rutted out trail that angles down the hill and saw what I thought was a deer butt 75-100 straight down the mountain. It was snowing pretty hard an I looked through my scope to get a better look. I looked on 4 power at first but still couldn't tell for sure so I tuned it up to 12 power and saw for sure it was a deer. I watched for a minute or so and finally saw some ears and then a glimpse of a tine and mainbeam. I decided to shoot him but I got fooled a little on the size of his deer. Thought he was a different buck I had been getting on camera looking at him through the heavy snow falling and the trees. Can't take back a bullet though and I'm happy with him. I've lived permanently in Kentucky now since 2005 and this is the first antlered deer I've ever killed here. I actually have pictures of this buck two nights ago over a mile from where I killed him.
