It was cold!
Almost all the bucks I see late season I have never laid eyes on or no trail cam pictures.
After taking care of the coyote and sheds my brother and I regrouped for the last sit.
He informed me he seen a pretty big buck cut across open country to a 2-5 acre timber that lays next to a highway.
I thought what the heck I'll go out that way and sit on a terrace.
It didnt take long and does were crossing the highway and started heading into the field I was in. Cars were honking at them to get them off the highway. I'm not sure if he was one of them but him and 2 other bucks came out of the little timber and started making it to me. When he moved his head I could see the matching flyers. I waited and let the 6ptr walk past as he did I got the gun on him and the 6ptr stomped his foot. The big guy became very alert and I took my shot. He didn't go to far.
It was a lot of fun and my brother also shot a really nice 8ptr on opening weekend. Thanks to my farmer friend for letting us hunt and congrats to all the successful hunters!
Bring on shed season!
We had one on the farm a couple years ago that could have been his twin. It was an 8 point with matching flyers coming off both G2s in the same place as yours. We called him 'Ape-hangers'. I attached a pic (at least I hope I did...)
