Mike: Here’s a picture of a 10-point I shot in southern Virginia.
This buck was coming to beans that the farmer had planted on the property where I was hunting. We had a few trail camera pics of him during the summer, but weren’t sure if we’d ever see him in the fall.
I went out on Monday, October 5 and climbed a tree along the bean field. Some does came out early into the beans, and then close to dark the big boy stepped out and started eating. He was about 75 yards and just wouldn’t come any closer. I was like, I have to move to where he came out of the woods, cause if he came out there one time he’s gonna do it again.
The next evening, October 6, I moved to the corner where he came out the night before and climbed a tree. Sure enough right close to dark, he and another buck showed up! The big buck jumped into the field near where I sat, sniffing like he knew something wasn’t quite right…but he never could smell me.
He made a loop in the beans and then started heading back out the way he came. I stopped him at 25 yards and smoked him with my new Elite Energy bow. He only ran about 40 yards, and I saw him fall from my stand. Rough score we came up with was 155, just a real pretty buck. Thanks, Rolin G.
Rolin, great job man, and perfect shot!
