Here's the Story:

Been watching this buck for the last 3 years, knew he was going to be something special at 3 years old. When we first saw him as a youngster he had double split brows and flyers on both g2's. Every year we noticed he added more and more to his rack but we also noticed that every november he seemed to start showing up either scarred up or broken off, then by december he would stop showing up all together. This year we had more pictures of him than ever before and knowing his age we decided it was time to start hunting him exclusively. I hunted him hard all bow season, and just couldn't get him into range. When rifle season started i wanted to keep bow hunting but after the first day hearing shots from adjacent properties i just couldn't leave it up to chance any more and decided to rifle hunt. The first day i decided to rifle hunt i sat on a hillside over looking a large open bottom that was a transition area from betting to food and water that i knew he ran frequently. About 2-2:30 that afternoon he came out of bedding and began to rub a cedar bush and knowing it was him, it was a quick decision to take the shot. One shot and he dropped and that was it. The craziest thing is, my ranch i hunt is 3700 acres and i have pics on that same deer from one end of the ranch to the other all within just a couple of days of each other. That afternoon after i killed him a friend of mine that hunts the property to the south, sent me game camera picks of him at one of his feeders on his property, said that if he had hunted his usual stand that day he would have shot him that morning. I dont know if it was luck or fate but whatever it was, this deer is a memory and trophy ill have for the rest of my life. Another low fence free range north Texas monster. "stickers"
