Hunter: Luke Houston
Points: 12 (6L, 6R)
This is a buck we noticed early on in the summer and kept getting consistent pictures of throughout the summer and into the season. Started noticing him lock into a pattern a couple weeks back where he would not show himself for roughly 10-day periods. Through this entire time of patterning the deer dating back to early summer we only had three daylight pictures of him. With no intentions of going to this stand, I headed into the woods earlier than normal. Noticing little activity in the food plot I had planned to hunt I walked past it and to the stand where we were getting the pictures of this buck. Yet to see a deer on this piece of property all year from the stand, I sat with little hope of seeing a deer much less him due to the weather conditions. Roughly 6:50 I heard something to my left and quickly spotted him emerging from a thick bottom. I watched him calmly feed my way until presenting a 10-yard shot.
