Hunt Story

I got in the stand about 45 minutes before daylight and I rattled right before daybreak. As soon as I got done rattling I soon had a 6-point walk in. 45 minutes have passed and then I had a small spike come in as well. While I was watching the spike to my right side, I turned back to my left to see if anything else had walked out and there he stood at the end of the clear strip in the pipes. When I saw him he was on his back two legs rubbing his antlers in a tree branch then fell back down to do his scrape on the ground and then raised back up to rub the branch some more. While he was messing around in the branches I didn't really know if it was the big ten I've had on camera or not but as soon as he dropped back down on all four legs again he then turned and looked straight at me and I then knew he was the one. I slowly grabbed my gun and put my crosshairs perfectly on his shoulder and then pulled the trigger.
