Hunter: Steve Strickland
Points: 10 (5L, 5R)
I closed my business on Nov. 22 on Friday at about 4:30 p.m. for a quick hunt. I got on my 10-foot tower stand at the edge of a 70+ picked/row-tilled cotton field surrounded by woods. I got set up at 5:00 p.m. I grunted and waited. At 5:30 three big does came out across the field about 350 yards away. They fed toward me to about 200 yards away and stopped. In a few minutes the big buck ran out of the woods about 30 yards to my right, running toward the does. I threw up my Ruger #17 mag and shot him behind the front shoulder. He ran about 50 yards and fell. I just sat there to make sure he was down. Good quick hunt.
