So I woke up at 4am this morning feeling like I drank too much last night and hit the snooze button and was going to sleep in until i woke up and not go hunting this morning. Then a few min later the alarm went off again. So I crawled out of bed. Gathered my hunting gear and put it in the truck. About 5 miles down the road I remember I forgot my permit on my dresser and had to turn around. No big deal but enough to make you angry. So I head to the store to get a cup of joe before I hit the woods. While paying for the coffee something told me to check and see if my orange was in the truck. come to find out I didn't have my orange hat and vest with me. No I am steaming mad, knowing i was going to be late. So I fly all the way to the closest walmart. Buy a vest and hat. Now I am on the way to a new hunting area, I have never hunted before and am running late. day break is closely approaching. So I am looking at the map and my selected hunting area is suppose to start after the bridge and the signs are wrong, so i drive around for another 10 min and finally find where my area starts. Then I start going up a hill and can see that its getting light out now. I look and see a big oak grove on top of this hill. And decide this is where i am going to hunt.I park the truck and change into my scent blocker clothes and boots. Spray down and spray some code blue estrus on my new hat. I didnt even take the sticker off the hat.I put the primer in my savage ML II and start my journey into the woods. With every step i know every deer within 10 miles is going to spook because all the dry leaves. So after a few min of walking into the woods the oak grove turns into a pine thicked but it really opened up about 100 yards into it so i headed in. I am now in a hurry because day break is here. I walking into the pines and it opened where i had shooting lanes of 75 yards in spots. I started to climb a tree, and about 10 feet up I knew i was in the wrong tree, so I get down discouraged because now i dont need my flashlight to see and know i spooked every deer within miles. I find a tree 5 yards deeper in and realize i can now see alot better. I climb about 30 feet up and as soon as i sit down and start scanning i hear a shot off in the distance. Now i know I was too late. I just knew it was a bad day after all the events leading up to then. So i pull up my pull cord, spray it with the code blue estrus and lower it so it will drift some scents downwind. I sit there for 5-10 min and I hear a buck growl so loud it jumped me and i froze. Pulled out my buck roar and gave it one loud stern grunt. And then all madness breaks loose. Another loud grunt for my left. I spot a doe running my way, so i get ready because i know there is a buck following her. Then a monster buck comes into view and stops in the thicket and turns around and postures up to another big buck. The first one was way bigger tho. Then another doe goes running by them and the bigger one goes chashing her through the thicket and my heart dropped out of my chest when I lost sight of them. So i turn to where the other deer were and they were gone. All of a sudden i see another doe running like she is being chased. And I see him dogging her bad. They stop and now start eating the acorns for what seems like 10 hours. Then the buck walks up to the doe and sniffs her, and she takes off down the thicket straight for a perfect 65-70 yard shot. I watch her go through my scope and i can see him coming into view and he walks into the crosshairs and i pull the trigger. He just stops and stands there and I am about to throw my gun out of the tree because i know there is no way i missed, but he is just standing there for a few min which again seemed like it was hours. I reloaded and as soon as i was done, he starts rocking back and forth, turns around and lays down. After a min or so, I put another round in him just to make sure he doesnt get up, and run off. After sitting there for 10 min i couldnt take it anymore. So i climb down and walk to my buck. He turned out to be a BIG main frame 8 with a sticker on each G2. I felt so blessed and happy I knelt down and thanked God and my Grandfather for watching down on me and started to choke up and even shed a tear. He is not the biggest deer in the world. But its my biggest and my the happiest I have been in a very long time. Hope you all enjoy and God Bless you all.
