Shot this bruiser on the first day at 4:45 pm 100 yd shot as he was locked down on a doe. We have 12 guys that have been hunting this property for about 12 years. We have never laid eyes of this guy. We have talked to alot of the adjoiners and they to have never seen this buck or have trail cam pics of him. Patience and persitance pays off. Wasn't seeing much all day...then out of now where, here come 4 deer 2 does, a spike and this guy as he was chasing the bigger doe. He had here locked down. Every move she made...he counter moved her...lol. It was neat to watch.
Although this all happened in about 30 seconds and then it was all over. Dropped him in his tracks. The doe looked relieved to looking over her shoulder and he wasn't there any more. The spike that was with them, was the same spike I saw all of bow season. How close was this bruiser the whole time and I never knew it. The best part about the whole hunt...being at camp with a great bunch of guys !!!! We also took a 7pt and a 5 pt that day.
16 pt. 8 each side 21.5" spread 6" bases Huntingdon County
