I left my camp at 5:00 AM and dropped my daughter off at my box stand and continued to a lock on I have at the far back corner of a clear cut. I had no movement all morning and got a text from my daughter she was ready to go so I started to pack my gear and as I was lowering my back pack to the ground I heard a noise and looked up and this buck was running off through the clear cut. He had been bedded the whole time 25 yards in front of me and I didn't even know he was there. I dropped my pack and grabbed my rifle and followed him in the scope and when he slowed down I shot. He slumped over and turn broadside walking slow so I chambered another round and shot again. I had been watching this deer from a spike at 1.5 years old and this is the buck he turned into 3.5 years later. Let EM go and watch EM grow!!!
