Hunt Story

Two years of cat and mouse came to a close last night at 7:38 p.m. on 9-27-22. It made it that much better that most of the crew was able to make it for the track and recovery and that my main deer hunting partner Mickey Jarrard was there hunting about 250 from me when it all went down.... Mickey and I have had this deer on cam since 2020 and we decided to kill him last year, but between cutting timber where he was staying, and a good run of bad luck, the deer left the week before bow season 2021 and never came forward to 8-18-2022 JC White and I go over there to move a stand and we accidentally jump him in the middle of the now thick clear cut at 2 p.m. I've been running ragged since trying to locate him and see what he was doin and it wasn't going very good, until randomly me and Mickey both get a daylight picture of him on the morning of the 27th in 2 spots 250 yards apart, where we have never seen him. We came up with a game plan for us both to try him that evening and the next morning. And for once he read the script almost perfectly. I felt pretty good about the shot and blood looked good but we decided to give him a little time so we went and got a bite to eat and waited on JC, Gabe Wahl and Trey Goodroe to get there. We came back about 2 hours later and trailed him about 100-130 yards and found him piled up.
