My fiance got me into hunting about 5 years ago. We didn't have much land so I've patiently been waiting to see my first big buck. We picked up a nice track of land this year so my chances improved greatly. I bagged this buck around noon on November 28. The full moon was in play so we decided to hunt late morning. Our stands are about 700 yards apart and no sooner than he got seated a big buck passed through his lane heading my way. He texted me a heads up. About 15 minutes later I got a glimpse of him in the thicket and then he was gone. I thought he had laid down. Another 30 minutes passed and I saw movement coming to my corn and he stepped out. Clean shot - he ran 30 yards - I finally got a nice buck.
