Today was my 3rd sit of the January season. I knew it was going to be a good afternoon with this big front pushing through. Today I moved to an area that I had seen deer pass through on both previous sits. I knew I’d be just barely cheating the wind but I was going for broke. I decided my best bet was to bring in my LW hang on and sticks. I packed it 5 sticks but only ended up needing 4 to get to a good height with good cover in the area I wanted. I was in early and hadn’t seen a thing, when just after 3:00 I hear running from the area I expected deer to come from. I was standing and my bow was at my fingertips on the hook. As I grabbed the bow a bunch of does come blowing past with a young 6 pointer hot on their tail pushing them. They all pass me but I pick out a big doe at 22 yards and am waiting for her to turn broadside. In the seconds I’m watching her, I hear footsteps over my left shoulder from where the deer came. I glance over and see a nice 8 pointer coming in. He briefly paused and looked my way but continued on towards the does. He passed behind a tree, I drew and when he stepped out and stopped, I sent the arrow. The shot was absolutely perfect and I watched him drop within 60 yards. What an amazing hunt! A cool part is last week I found a shed from last year and it turns out it was his!

He weighed 174#s dressed which puts him around 210# live weight and he had zero fat on him. I wonder how big he was in October.

Thanks everyone. I’m just lucky he came in seconds before the doe in front of me turned! I’ve had an absolutely amazing season. I reviewed the footage on my head cam. It was 22 seconds from even I saw him to when the arrow impacted him. It was 10 seconds until he crashed. The entire encounter lasted 32 seconds. It just goes to show how fast things can happen and to always be ready! It why I rarely sit down while on stand.
