    Heres how it went down... I got in the stand at 6:00 this morning. By 6:30 I had deer all around me. My stand is in a cedar tree. Two yearlings come into the path in the tree and looked up at me. I knew I was busted. But they started eating berrys off a boxwood like bush. As it got lighter, the deer kept geting closer to the woods. They was eating green weeds in a non-picked soy bean field. As they got closer to the woods I would grunt. They would turn around and come about ten feet and stop, then go back. This went on for a few minutes. When it got light enough for me to see, I realized the 10 pointer was with them. The way the light was hitting that rack, It looked like his ears was big as a basketball. When I scoped him I knew it was now or never. Thats when I took the shot.

    If you look at one of the photos, you can see his tarsal glands are swollen. But this deer did not have the full blown rut smell. He actually had no smell at all.

    This evening, I heard two bucks raisin cane in the woods. It sounded like Lousiville sluggers beating each other. Needless to say, the better half has been off work all week and will be sitting in my stand in the morning. She has killed does by the truck load. But never a Buck. I can only hope and pray her time is now!

    This is my biggest rack/weight buck I have killed in my 42 years on this planet!

    Thank you all for the congrats! I am really on cloud nine with this deer! The only problem is, I got around 23 deer heads to mount before I get to this one! I guess I could push him ahead of the other ones in the taxidermy studio...lol

    That old 30-06 has never let me down. Some of you remember I won the weatherby 300 mag. back in Spetember. I never got a chance to order a scope for it. Back to the old springfield US Armory 30-06, I bought this gun 20+ years ago. Paid $115.00 at a estate auction for it and it even had the old Ted Williams scope on it. Ive killed many deer with this gun. And to be honest with you, I like it better than the Weatherby. Its never let me down.

    The weather here has been yucky! Wife has to work fri,sat and sun. But Monday & Tue. we gonna try to gt her one.

    Take care all and have a wonderful Holiday season!
    ~Teddy
