Hunt Story

Got off work and rushed to the stand knowing I didn't have much time to sit, but I went any ways for the love of hunting. I was able to finally get in the stand and settled in around 5:10 p.m. and boy was it slow. I finally saw my first deer around 5:45 p.m. and it was like someone flipped a switch, eventually I had 20 or more deer around me all at one time. So I just started slowly moving around looking at each buck I had around me (6) through my Leopold binoculars and each one is a good young buck that needs 1 to 2 more years. I get to the last buck who had just walked out as I finished looking over another buck, I immediately knew I didn't need any binoculars to know who this deer was or if he was old enough. I grab my Remington 700 .308 and slowly pick it up. Because of all the deer around me I had to be very careful, I did not want to be spotted. I finally get my crosshairs on him and he is working his way toward me. I wait and another smaller buck comes around getting close to his doe and he turns to push the younger buck away, and that creates enough movement I needed to get a shot off behind his shoulder. He runs 50 yards and drops.
