Decided to take my last half day of vacation today with the snow sticking and more coming. Got to my stand and the neighbors where making all kinds of noise behind me so I decided to move and go to a ground blind I had set up and not sat in yet on the edge of some thick pines and the hardwoods. With about 15 minutes of legal light I hear a stick snap and look and see a deer working through the pines. I put the binoculars up and as soon as I could see it was a buck I reached for the gun and he vanishes. I'm searching hard to find him and figure he's gone when up to my right I hear something and there he is 75 yards away and looking away from me. I got the crosshairs on him took a breath and squeezed the trigger. The deer bolts and now I'm thinking how did I miss there's no f'ing way I missed. I get out of the blind to go look and there's blood then more blood then alot of blood and there he was 30 yes away. The shot took the bottom of his heart and and one lung. I'm glad I stuck it out like everyone has said it can all change in an instant.20211208_165053.thumb.jpg.868c4e7cd8c8c1de7f5ae2270c198a8e.jpg

Not much, but by God he'll due after hunt #62!! I was in a stand 60 yards from my yard! When I shot, he bolted directly towards my house! LOL Funny that he dropped ~100 yards from my house!! 

Had dinner and just dragged him in! Thought I better have a celebratory shot of Tequila before I start skinning!

Looks like a damn fine buck to me !  Is he a 7 or an 8?  

Congrats and it worked out in the end. And sleep in this weekend , have a big breakfast and relax for a day. You've sure earned it.

He is a solid 8pt Rob! And thanks for the words of encouragement! Good luck to you this weekend!

Thanks Dave! I appreciate the faith and the good mojo you sent my way! It was one of my toughest seasons. I hope this will put you over the top in Rob's contest! It pained me even more to let people down in the contest, so I'm glad I could finish strong.

At the time, I honestly had no idea how big (or small) it was! LOL He was looking in my direction when I first scoped him, so I didn't see points! Once I confirmed bone on his head, that was good enough and I touched it off!! The mood I was in, I didn't know or care if he was a big spike! LOL

Deer out in front of house now I can count 11 (blobs in the corn n soybean)  will be gone by daylight I'm sure  off to hide for the day.. will have 2 hunters in camp this after noon, friend and his wife are here but guessing they will be sleeping in after last night's celebration drinks and are headed home this am, other two will show around noon I guess.

Up and getting ready for my last rifle hunt of the year in NY.  I'm sitting first thing then since we got a couple inches of fresh snow last night I'll go for a walk hoping to catch fresh tracks.   I'll be back out again come ml and once more in pa but my season is coming to a close quickly with only 3 or 4 more days left for me to hunt.
