Hunter: Patrick Mitchell
Points: 10 (5L, 5R)
I was faced with two options for Friday, November 5th: 1) post up outside my office on Cobb Parkway and await the Braves World Series parade to come by, or 2) make the drive down to South Georgia and hunt the big ten. It was a slow afternoon sit. The first few does stepped out a little later than normal. Then a smaller 2-year-old buck showed up followed by six more does/yearlings. Shortly before dark, with live decoys in the field and the wind in my favor, the big ten appeared at the far end of the food plot. A quick glance through my binoculars proved it was him and the shot was made. I knew it was a good hit and that was confirmed when blood was discovered. He was found in a swamp bottom about 100 yards from where he stood when he got shot.
