PS: That buck in your avatar pic has some serious mass!! You should do a post about the story when you killed him.
backstraps, I killed that buck I believe in 08 on Public land early November here in Missouri. I live in about 4.5 hour from that piece of conservation while I have hunted that place before that was a first time in that particular spot. I had noticed some tall rubs next to a very thick area right beside the road/packing area. Everyone had to walk past it going it except the rubs were hidden less you walked through a brush field. The rubs were really tall but only on little trees (notice how his horns come back together a lot). I arrived on a Friday afternoon and was going to stay for a few days. I got there just about 3:00 pm and had a straight east wind which was gusting well over 30 mph. I decided I would give this spot a go and I was set up at about 3:30. I was at a end of a field were a small ravine went down to a small pond sort of making a pinch point, with the very think cover to my North (I was facing East). It wasn't to long and I thought I seen movement down below but don't know what it was, today I believe it was this buck headed to water but I am not positive. Anyways, as I sit there I had hung my rangefinder from a limb, and with the wind it fell off and I was looking at it on the ground thinking I should probably go get it, anyways I decided against it and I pretty much looked up and seen this dude walking up the ravine towards me (yeah I would of been busted). I tried pulling back at 20 yards, no go, I had hurt my shoulder earlier in the year while shooting a doe and got my arm in an awkward position. I finally was able to hold my release hand tight against my body and push my bow away and got to full draw when he was about to 30 yards. I shot him quartering away and took out about everything, he went maybe 30 yards and started swaying back and forth and went down. I have since hunted that spot twice since, seen one mature 6 point that had no eye guards but huge mass (truly a cull buck) and one crooked horn buck that I watched for 2 years and was hoping to wait till he was 4.5 to try and take him but he disappeared the year I planed on trying to kill him. It is public land so who knows what happened to him.
