“I had seen this deer on the last week of muzzle loading but I could not get a shot. This buck ended up running off a small buck that was following a doe. After he ran off that buck, he started chasing the doe. I was sick that I could not get a shot.
I went back on Nov. 20 and at 8 a.m. heard a deer coming up the gully. It was a doe. She got 40 yards from me and stopped and looked my way. She then looked back down the hill and I could tell there was another deer behind her. She went past me up the mountain and then I caught a look at the other deer and it was the same buck I had saw a week earlier. I shot this deer at 30 yards.”
This is another example of how, when you know a buck is in the area, it can pay to keep after it! Great job and great buck, Jeff!
