Nice 8 from Elk County

It's raining again tuesday morning. Monday I had 3 Bull elk 10 ft from my stand I could here one burp they were so close. Of course I forgot my camera. Dad scored with an 8 around 1:30. Tuesday morning got up late due to rain and Steeler game the night before. Headed to find a spot to sit and watch a valley I used to hunt. Someone beat me there so I headed to the left about 50 yds when 2 doe jumped up and stepped out about 70 yds away. Then the buck comes running out. I said it's a shooter, please stop, please stop. He does and I tried to calmly take a good shot. He's around 85 yds when I squeezed the trigger. Now it starts raining of course. I walked over to look for sign and found nothing. He headed towards the trees so I kept looking. Went to camp to get help. My dad and I started looking again and it's pouring now. I told dad to go back to camp and I would keep looking. After retracing my steps I found him about 60 yds in the field by a pine tree. I assumed he went for the trees but I was wrong. Glad I found him best deer yet. 8pt with a 21" inside spread.

Congrats on the fine elk 8!

I hunt deer in 2F, 5c/d. I hunt waterfowl in whatever unit they happen to be in on that day.
