Hunter: Joe Arnick
Points: 10 (5L, 5R)
Checked trail cameras Friday afternoon and had picture of several bucks. I decided to hunt in some pines overlooking a creek bottom. I’ve hunted this spot over several seasons and had plenty of bucks cruising for does. Last season I let a nice 2 1/2-year-old walk and was hoping he would be back this year. Started seeing deer at first light had two does on the edge of the creek bottom and the pines feeding. Looked to my right and had a good buck staring right at me. I was 25 feet up and he put his head down I was able to stand up and turn to shoot him. He only ran 30 yards. About an hour later I got down and was happy he ended up having 10 points.
