Default Finally!!

Well I did it this evening. Finally got a buck with my bow. Been getting a few different bucks on camera in the daylight. I have been hunting that stand sparingly waiting on the right wind. Hunted my climber this morning with the ml with no luck. Went in midday and set up a lock on covering a trail that heads to the rice bran. At 5PM I heard something slipping through the palmettos. Then at 40 yards I saw a buck coming in. I recognized him as what I thought was a tall 6 I had on camera. He got to within 20 yards and had to duck under a leaning tree. As he did I drew and when he paused after stepping out of the other side I let the Firecat do work. Thought the shot was iffy but after a 60 yard run thought I heard him fall. I decided to hold off until dark to check for blood. Got down and went to where he was when I shot. Found good blood so I backed out to wait on my buddy to bring his dog. He has a young catahoula he actually got from Catahoula1 on the site. Up until the last 15 yards there was a good trail and she found the deer with no problem. It was actually a 7pt, would have been 8 but one brow tine was just under an inch. 180 pounds. We were debating the age between 2 and 3. The rack said 2 but the body weight and size of the head said older. When we opened the mouth though he only had a couple teeth left. Don't have a good enough signal to upload pictures right now.
