Location: In your stand while your at work!Well last night was fun. I had 3 small bucks around my stand the entire sit and one bedded 10’ from my tree. About 5:00 I saw a decent buck jump the creek and started heading towards me. I know this buck as he is target # 1 for this property. He hung up 70y away and the small buck under me saw him and went to him. They sparred for a short bit then the small buck groomed him up and they started my way! At 18y the buck offered me a great shot and I sent the SPIT his way and POOOP! Not the sound I wanted. He hunched over and went about 40y and started walking to a thicket. I figured I gut shot him and was disappointed. I was planning on getting down when the other bucks dispersed thinking ill come back in the am. I txt my friends who were giving me all kinds of grief. 15 min later a fox came in and was circling the area I’m thinking smelling the gut trail… The fox then went into the thicket and I’m thinking he was going to jump the deer. Well about 10 min later he came out of there with a deer tail in his mouth so I celebrated and went and got him. When I got to him I found a perfect shot. I later went and got my arrow which told the story as well as it was covered and what a blood trail – LOVE SPITS! He is not a stud but just a good deer with 12 pts. I had posted a pic of this deer earlier in the deer contest and nice to get one your after. Oh and you can bet I burnt up the txt back to my friends who were giving me heck!!! 1 Move VA target and 1 KS target to go!My Buck killing skills are sick – too bad there not contagious!!! Big Bucks are easy - That's why I let them go and shoot little young ones :)

My daughter has a karate tourney in Hampton on Saturday so I will be there. Man, that was a tough lost last weekend. I didn’t understand that last series of plays at all. I was sitting in my stand watching the game on my phone getting all irritated!
