Then go still hunt him from the ground and shoot him in his bed.



Hill country thermals make it really tough I've snuck within 80 yards once and busted bucks.


Kinda like how the buck I shot this year was he was bedding in a ravine and there was no way to get at him trued hard but he always bested me. I waited till till the rut and moved only about 200 yards from his bedding to where the first doe group was. I just managed to shot him on the ground. The old does got the best of him.

I'm guessing him at 3.5 but he may be older

It’s all a guessing game sometimes your right most of the time I’m wrong

Here’s some survivors. Had a close encounter with this guy. . . 2nd year in a row that he has been within 20 yards of me and I couldn’t get off a shot. Actually happened twice last year.

Here’s another survivor. Our season doesn’t actually end until the 15th but I hope he makes it . The only time I had daylight pics of him was during a two week window. And that time has passed.

Heres 2 that made It I'm hoping to catch up with next fall. I had 3 shooters found last summer, killed one and other 2 haven't been seen since Halloween. Idk if they got killed somewhere or just ain't come home yet... I'm looking forward to these 2, pretty sure they're both 3.5

I decided this season to run a couple cameras on a public property that I hadn't hunted in a few years. When I checked cards this winter I was happily surprised to see this old 7 pointer that I instantly recognized. I first saw him back in 2013 and passed him as a youngster a couple times. He is still a 7 pointer, only massive now with some sticker points off his tines. But the overall constitution of his rack hasn't changed much. I guessed him to be a 2yr old back in 2013. That would make him 8yrs old now- living his whole life on highly pressured land. I continue to be in awe of these smart old whitetails. I wish I had gotten on him earlier in the year.
