Yes, I got my buck! On the last day of bow season.
I was out hunting with my friend during bow season. My friend had a doe permit as well as a license to shoot a buck. Driving by a large field we spotted this magnificent large buck just milling about. So I had my friend stop the truck and I got out with my camera ......... My "choice" weapon! I snuck up as close as I could get and when the buck realized I was there, I started to softly talk to him. He must have realized I only had a camera with me and slowly walked around in three big circles while I took the following photos. I got very close to him at times.
I finally got about 30 feet away. I probably could have ran up to him and slapped him on his ass ....... if that was something I wanted to do.
He was a big old buck for sure! Over 200 pounds or more!
Not sure why some animals trust me enough to get real close to them!
I CAN get close to bear also .... but that is probably even a dumber idea.
Enjoy the photos!
Hard to tell there is a giant buck right in front of me!
Just his antlers to give him away
Notice how he camouflages so well
Also note the big a-typical rack!
When you get close enough to count the deers nose hairs ..... it's time to shoot! BAM!
That buck is mine! A perfect broad-side shot! From less than ten yards away!
(I'll bet somebody can solve the mystery photo now!)
