So after debating for 2 days on where to go i decided to hit up a spot on stateland in 7p i scouted this summer. Think i even made a post about it. At 620 i finally get to the ridge i wanted to sit. Its about 1.25 miles in finished getting dress and my area setup i hear something running and here comes 6 deer flying past me and up the hill. I thought they had all moved past. Well at 730 i needed to readjust so i stand up slow and up jumps 2 deer under 50yrds away both does. 800 i saw one sneaking through the brush going the other way. About 830 i hear a deer coming in finally get eyes on it and its a basket 6 more then willing to take it but he came down wind saw him run 200yrds and kaboom someone else killed him watched the deer fall.
900 i decided i couldnt see enough so shifted up the hill. By 10 didnt like my spot again so i get ready to move over 20yrds and i hear a deer coming ends up being a doe she walked within 10yrds of me. Waited 20 mins to make sure a buck wasnt coming and moved over. No more than 20 mins later i hear crashing here comes a doe flying past at 80yrds with a small buck trotting behind. No shot on him then i saw a huge body buck running through with a decent rack. That was it until 4.
At 4 i got up to stretch and thought what i heard was a grey squirel running behind me so i didnt pay attention to it. But it kept getting louder and finally see an ear flicker. Its a doe at 50yrds feeding on something. At this time i think i can hear 2 but couldnt tell. So i slowly sneak down onto my knees and get ready well doe gets to an opening about the time i put my shooting stick in the snow and it crunched. We got in a stare down for a couple minutes. During this i finally tell there are 2. Well she looks back and i glance over and all i see is a nose poking out behind a tree. Then i hear a grunt she jumps away so i get saftey off and lock into the opening. I see the buck enter my scope stop where she did and squeezed. Didnt move an inch. 2nd biggest buck both stateland in 7p and both since 2016.
Had a friend 300yrds away who sprinted over to celebrate, brother showed up along with a hunting buddy who also filled his tag on a 6.(hunting together since we were 12 first time ever doubling on a buck). Drage was about 1.4 miles phone died on way back to truck so dont no exact distance. Have a pic of them helping drag but wont load. Buddies buck is last picture.
