Buck was killed in Rockingham County on September 18, 2022.
I have been planting food plots and watching this deer for 2 years. I decided this year was the year I wanted to harvest him. After a shaky start to the season with bad wind and rainy days I felt like my chances of killing him were dwindling.
After tracking wind patterns and hunting the right stands for those days I didn’t see him on my hunts for 3 days. So, I took a couple days off to give him some space and after watching my plot watcher camera he was seen in daylight 3 days in a row.
The wind was right on September 18, 2022 so with high hopes I headed to my Redneck Blind. Around 6:30 pm a doe and a fawn entered into the food plot and kept looking into the woods so I thought more deer were coming. At 6:47 pm the buck I wanted and a smaller buck stepped out into the food plot. I drew my Elite Kure bow. The deer became nervous and spooked a little but stopped at 48 yards. My Black Eagle X-Impact Arrow tipped with a Tooth of the Arrow broadhead found its mark. After a 60 yard tracking job the buck was recovered.
