    This morning right after good shooting light I looked out into the field and could see a deer so I put my rifle on the stick and the moment I seen him through my scope I knew he was a shooter, he was following a couple does. When i shot and he ran to the edge of the woods and stopped so I shot again. He was gone and I didn't know where he had went but the shot felt good so I decided to wait about 40 mins and go take a look. Well I went to where he was standing and didn't see anything so I decided to start down the holler. I hadn't made it out of the field and could see 1 laying there but I couldn't see his rack because of the broomsage. The closer I got the bigger he looked. I knew he was a good deer but I didn't know he was this big. He hadn't ran probably 30 yards from where I shot. I have had a tuff but really blessed season, several days I didn't think I would be able to stay long because of my back but with a lil prayer I would get to stay longer than I had expected and I didn't get to bow hunted very little but my 11 year old step son killed an 11 point the second day of the early muzzle loader season and my dad killed a nice 9 the first day of rifle and today I was blessed with my biggest buck ever. I haven't been able to measure much but he has a 19 in inside spread.needless to say between Connors deer and mine I'm gonna have a pretty good taxidermy bill haha.

    Very nice. I have seen more rut activity the past couple days than I ever have this late in the season. I think there is still hope.

    Congratulations that is a very nice deer. I was hoping for the same scenario to unfold this morning but they just keep giving me the slip.

    My vote for best buck of the year. This has to be the nicest looking buck I've seen on here this year. Congratulations
