Started hunting a new 40 acre property in the beginning of Nov. This property had not been hunted in 40 years and all the neighboring property owners around don't allow hunting. The owner let me bow hunt only so with not a lot of time to clear and scout I set up on the best trails and scrap line I could find. Sure enough, I checked the camera the same day I hunted and he was still alive and chasing does around two days before. Got in the stand about 4 o'clock and put the arrow in him at 5:15. Second biggest buck ever and biggest ever with a crossbow. He came out to a bleat call after 4 does passed through the thicket about 15 min earlier.
