Congrats, and definitely good eating. I saw a lot of smaller bucks yesterday, but I'm holding myself to 8-point or larger this season. Hopefully this will pay off in future seasons and I'm sure a big one will pass by sooner or later. I wanted to get out again today but it is way too windy here.

I was in my treestand swaying back and forth. I was hoping it would die down an hour or so before dark and have some fun, but it pretty much stayed the same. Still had a fun night! Good luck on your 8 pointer. I want to put a couple of does in the freezer and then hunt the rest of the year for a big boy.

Opening day of Virginia rifle season. Cold morning, 28 degrees with a nice little stiff northern wind. Saw another spike buck at 30 yards about mid morning. Couldn't decide if I wanted to go back to the truck or not for lunch. Opted to stay in the stand. Right around noon this fella was walking along the property line, on the wrong side. He was on posted property. I grunted at him and he ignored me. Kept walking. grunted again, ignored me. He was about 85 yards at this point. Grunted again and he never slowed down, but stared turning slowly towards my property. Then he was in the brush and all I could see was his antlers. He stopped about 60 yards away and thrashed a tree. I grunted again with a tending grunt and he walked a little farther and started thrashing another tree. Then finally stepped into view. Shot and he trotted a little bit, but acted like he hadn't been hit so I shot him again. Bullets were about 3 inches apart. One of the shots blew the top of his heart out. He was nice enough to run a few yards towards the truck instead of back down to the bottom of the hill! 6X5 or as they say back here a 11 pointer. :)

Very nice deer. No luck here yet but they just seem to be hitting their stride around here so hopefully this coming weekend.

Nice Buck

I will be finally able to go out in the morning for the first time this year. It is supposed to be cold so I hope they are up and moving around.

They will either be moving or frozen to the ground! :)

Went out this morning and didn't see much. A buddy of mine saw a nice 12-point, but it was out of range. Towards the end of the morning this doe walked by so I figured I might as well start stocking up the freezer. Hopefully the next picture I post will be that 12...
