Christmas Buck 2007
This guy was in the wrong place at the wrong time on the evening of Christmas day 2007. I had hunted hard all season and encountered two big bucks, I'm guessing over 160", but neither one was quite close enough. I had a good season, passing many bucks, some larger than this one, but time was running out. This night was to be my last hunt of the year, so when this guy came walking in around 5 p.m. I decided I'd take him if I could get it all on video. I positioned the camera arm over the corn feeder and the deer cooperated. I made a perfect heart shot, and the deer left an amazing blood trail over the snow before piling up just out of sight.
