3rd days a charm

November 10, 2013 by Chad Tebbe

Started my hunt Friday morning seeing this guy after only 15 minutes in the stand and then yet again another hour later. After not seeing anything else I got down to scout a new location near by. I found a line of scrapes and rubs farther into the timber where I relocated my stand. The area I was hunting required a doe harvest before harvesting a buck. Friday evening I was able to harvest a doe in my new location but no sign of the buck I was after. Saturday morning rolls around and I’m back in the same stand from the evening before. I had 2 close encounters with smaller bucks and seen this guy once again just out of range. After the morning hunt I once again move my stand to a different tree trying to zero in on this buck. Saturday afternoon rolls around and much of the same, a few does and some smaller bucks. Sunday morning I climb back to into the tree again hoping I’m finally in the right spot. First light I have a smaller buck walk by within 20 yards. A few minutes later I had a turkey feeding behind me. I watch until she is out of sight and when I turn back around there he is…standing 8 yards in front of me in brush pile. I grab my trusty Z7 and wait. After only a few seconds but seems like hours he steps out and presented me with a perfect 17 yard shot and the rest is history! He’s an 11 point that scored 162″ and field dressed 196 lbs. This is why I shoot a Mathews!
