Last minute buck

Sometimes you hunt your rear end of all season long without results....But it can all change in a minute!....Yesterday was dreary, dark, and drizzly day and to be honest, I wasn't very hopeful, but my two friends and I decided to "give it [censored]" simply because it was the last day...We were putting on one-man drives but not much was happening..Deer were cutting back , or were absent..And as the day wound down things didn't look very promising...At 4:00PM my friend called out "One more drive"....So I sat on a bench overlooking a large hollow and waited, and waited as the daylight began to dwindle.....Then 100 yards out I saw a deer coming into the hollow in front of me, and as it came up onto my side I saw it was a respectable buck, with another buck following..They stopped momentarily at maybe 50 yards, and I put my open sights of my 54 caliber Renegade on the chest and to my surprise, the gun actually went off !...Since it was getting late I hurried down the mountain to the spot where they were standing and began looking for blood...By then my driver came through after hearing me shoot, and we quickly located a few drops of blood, which only increased as we tracked the deer for 150 yards where it was piled up against a bunch of fallen branches...Though not my biggest buck, it will remain one of my most thrilling memories for years to come!

Re: Last minute buck

The best kind of season ever....getting to hunt till nearly the last minute and then using your tag to finish it out.

Doesn't get any better than that!
