Hunter: Noah Lester
Points: 9 (5L, 4R)
I had seen this buck early in the season, but he came in too close to dark and I couldn’t make it happen. He had been gone for a couple of months, and he finally showed back up just recently, mostly at night. But just started coming sporadically during the daylight hours. Usually when I wasn’t hunting of course. So on New Year’s day I got off work earlier than usual. I went and sat in the stand, and he came out and saw me while I was glassing other deer. He appeared spooked, and I thought it was over but he turned around and came right to me, then another buck came to the end of the food plot and scared him off, and I thought he was gone. But about 10-15 minutes later he came back right to me and gave me a 18-yard broadside shot. He went maybe 100 yards and was deader than a door nail. Great way to start 2020!!!
