Late Season Chasing Brings Big Bucks Down

Joe and I hunted hard all season long and time after time had hunts ruined by weather, coyotes or the “quad guys” as we called them. Last season we saw several deer each time we went afield and this season was drastically different.
The deer sightings dropped off and hunting these elusive bucks was extremely difficult. I only saw one buck while hunting this season that was similar in size to the one pictured above that Joe took on December 19th.
Earlier in the week Joe set up a new stand in a thicket that funneled the deer off of a mountain. He had witnessed a younger buck breeding and saw some chasing. On Sunday morning he climbed up in his stand and as day began to break the deer were on their feet moving and this buck made his way towards Joe.
Joe drew back and was able to put a good shot on the buck, watching it go down in sight. It’s a great way to end the season and this is truly a buck to be proud of. Just goes to show you that you can’t ever give up. The season isn’t over until it’s over and there’s always a chance to put your tag on a nice buck.
