Hunt Story

I got in my stand a little before daylight, and when it was just breaking daylight I heard some bucks pushing around on each other but couldn't locate them. Then I happened to look in front of me less than 100 yards and saw the butt of a deer. Looking thru binoculars I saw it was stretching so I knew it had been bedded there, but I couldn't see its head for awhile. Then when it turned enough that I could see the broke ear and some of his rack I knew this was a buck I never saw or got pictures of before. I slowly got my gun up and had to wait for quite some time before he cleared some brush and turned broadside so I could get a shot. After the shot he went maybe 10 to 15 yards and piled up.
