    This is the buck I killed ON 11-29-08 IN Jackson Co. I green scored him at 161 5/8 gross and 149 7/8 net. This was the third time i had seen the buck this year. The first time was on 11-8-08 when I rattled him in to within 60yds with bow in hand there was nothing I could do but watch him walk away. The second time was the same day later that evening and I had a 140 class 8pt within 18yds when my buck came to within 30yds running by me chasing a doe and I couldn't get a shot. But on the 29th he came in with a 6pt and got a little to close for for his sake. And at 16yds I put my rage broadhead thru his chest. he only went about 60yds.
    I actually found this buck last Nov as you can see from the picture Nov 8th 2007 and had alot of pictures of him from Nov to the first of Jan in 2007 then he just disappeared. I had a camera in this area from June 2008 to date. I thought the buck was gone or dead. But then in the middle of Oct I got some pictures of him. I think this is an area that the buck just would rut at and then go back to his core area. I don't think he will be making that trip this year. His next trip will be to my taxidermist.

    Real nice!! He had a big body to! Some of them stories sound like my luck today, had a 130 class 9 point 20 yards looking back at a doe, but there was a yearling doe between me and him that saw me start to draw, and trotted away and he turned leaving me to follow her, all I had when I drew was a real bad quartering away shot, not going to risk that, so I had to wait for him to turn more but never did, I am still a little shook, this was at 2pm to day, have to baby sit now but I have till jan.
