“Unfortunately, I was not able to hunt most of last week. However, Saturday afternoon I decided to go back to the spot where I had killed the 9 pointer during muzzleloader season in an attempt to take a doe (Bedford Co. is an earn a buck county).
I was late arriving due to the VT game going into overtime, but the timing was perfect. Within 5 minutes of sitting down several doe came out about 100 yards below me feeding on acorns. After a few minutes, one finally walked into an opening giving me a clear shot. She dropped in her tracks.
I decided to stay put since my dad was hunting further up the ridge watching a small field. About 30 minutes later he called me on my cell phone (he doesn’t text) and told me a shooter buck had just ran across the field chasing a doe and he was unable to get a shot. About 5 minutes later I heard something coming down the hollow and yes, that wonderful grunting sound. I quickly got my gun in position knowing that trailing bucks are hard to stop. They came down the same path that I shot the 9 pointer on, only in the opposite direction. I ended up shooting the buck within just a few yards of where I shot the 9 pointer. I couldn’t believe it.
This was a much larger bodied deer and sported a little larger rack. He had a just a shade under a 19″ outside spread, G2′s between 9 and 10 inches and G3 between 7 and 8 inches. Wow, lightening can strike twice when your least expecting it! Now, its doe time again!”
How lucky was Glen that the doe showed up first!
