Hunter: Bubba Brannen
Points: 8 (4L, 4R)
Three weeks before season started our farm was sold and left us without a place to hunt. Unable to find any land, my dad decided he would plant a food plot and set up a feeder behind the house. Soon after we started getting pics of several young bucks and does. Two weeks ago this big 8-point we named One-Eyed Willy showed up. He was blind in his left eye. He stayed consistently coming in at night only, and on the 16th we had a pic of him at 10:13 a.m. On the 19th I got into the ground blind about 6 a.m. Shortly after daybreak I heard something crashing in the woods on the neighboring property and Willy came running out to our side and stood broadside at 25 yards. I was able to squeeze the shot off and he made it maybe 40yds and the rest is history. Just a little hard work paid off hunting on only 2 acres.
