My great uncle is the best example of a man that I have ever had an experience to see live his life out loud. He went home to be with the Lord last Friday AM. He turned 98 on 11/3/20. I have been blessed to be able to hunt with him for most of my life, and to hunt on his land for the last 20 years. I have killed decent bucks on the land over the last few years, but nothing really compared to this buck. He would be happy to know I got this nice buck. He loved seeing them and always enjoyed seeing game camera pictures.
My dad and I walked into the woods yesterday around 2pm and does were working around a good bit throughout the afternoon. Right after the sun went down, there were multiple does running, and I heard a grunt behind me. This buck crossed a trail, and bumped some does out of a thicket. He came by me slowly at around 40 yards. Hornady ELDX did the job. It is hard to believe that deer are chasing with the temperature being in the 70s. I am blessed beyond measure!!

My faith in the Lord runs deep and I'm sure your uncle was right there with you on a real nice buck. I've experienced the same hunts like that before and those are some of my best hunting memories. Congratulations on a great hunt.

Nice buck, congrats. They were a little late starting the chase this year. We saw em chasing last week as well. I have the week off, looking forward to it. Prayers to you and your family.
