This is not a super long story and not a very complicated story, but here goes. I heard that there was a big buck kicked up in the bedding area where I shot my gun buck from the extreme whitetail tactics episode. I setup on him during bow hunting and the winds were swirling and I saw nothing. The morning after that hunt I woke up with poison sumac everywhere. This was the second time I got sumac in this bedding area, so I have been terrified to go into it since. So tonight I sat further back from the bed than I wanted to help stay out of the sumac. I sat on the ground up against a tree and kept my eyes open. About an hour before dark, I heard one coming. I caught a glimpse of tines and prepared myself. He stepped out the thick and walked straight at me. I kept my iron sights on his chest and decided to let him get as close as possible. He got to about 45ish yards and froze and stared facing straight at me. It was not or never so I pulled the trigger and he dropped straight to the ground. The sabot slug made a mess of his vitals. I was pumped as you can tell from my post and I still am. This is my biggest buck yet. I put a tape to him and got about 140. I feel like he is bigger than that and that maybe I scored him wrong but I really don’t care.
I also apologize for my lack of smile in the photos…..I really was pumped and excited!

I also did not bring the camera. Im not sure why but I just happend to not. It would have been very simple to film
