11 point I missed at the beginning of season. He still was showing up on the game camera pics after that heartbreaking hunt, so I knew I had not scared him away.
I keep hunting & he kept standing me up … until 1/8/23! After raining all day I thought I’d chance it. Parked closer than normal because of mud & raining again. While sneaking to my stand I could see a deer.
While quietly climbing in the stand I put in my ear plugs & look out the window & all I could see was horns.
Opened the window & made a perfect shot & he fell. Blessing of the hunt & thankful for that second chance.
