So I was fortunate last night an able to harvest a nice mature 8. I had 3 encounters inside 40 yds with this deer last year and couldn’t seal the deal. I had lots of pictures of this deer this year and I hadn’t hunted him much due to not a good wind. I snuck in yesterday evening and had an incredible hunt. Ended up seeing 15+ deer coming to a single big white oak raining acorns. I had to watch this deer for over 30 minutes before he gave me a 17 yd shot. I made a good shot and he expired within 60 yds. Blessed to place my tag in this old buck. Side note he had one of the biggest bodies of any deer I’ve ever taken, it was all my brother and I could do to get him loaded on the back of the ranger.
