Crushing it in velvet

While sitting in a blue lawn chair, on the edge of some hardwoods, I was sitting for Mississippi’s first velvet season. I watched several does and some small bucks/spikes.

As I was fighting mosquitos, and the sun was starting to set, several does and spike walked out. I saw a darker deer moving my way, bow in hand, I was ready to see who was walking my way.

I could see it was a buck, but had no idea of his size. Boy O boy was a surprised. I shot, he ran and I found him approximately 60 yards. This was my second buck ever and he was in full velvet!
