The one that got away

I’ve had this buck on camera for a couple of years, all night pics. I did have one opportunity last season, 2 weeks before the end of the year came, he came out following some does, I shot and nicked him.

Fast forward to this year, I’ve seen him all fall on camera then he disappeared for about 2 weeks,  I thought someone had gotten him. December 19, I was changing the batteries in my camera and watching 5 or 6 does, nothing unusual then I saw him step out of the tree line and the rest is history.

If I wasn’t hooked on deer hunting before,  I sure am now! 

He was harvested on family land in Tremont, MS
