I killed this bird on April 19th in. 11 inch beard. 1 1/4 Spurs. Weighing around 20lbs. After hearing 4 birds that morning, I started working 3 birds but all of them had hens and wouldn't come. I kept hearing this bird gobble his head off. I knew he was hot. So I got up and started after this bird. After a long walk to get to him, a few yelps and soft clucks on the slate he came right in.
8 point, 18 1/2 inches wide, 10 inch G2. The was actually my 2nd encounter with this deer. I seen him opening day of muzzelloader and took a shot at him and missed him. We looked for the deer every time we hunted in that area but he was no where to be found. I was sitting the ladder stand on 12/5/15 and the deer walked out and gave me a 45yd shot and my ruger 270 laid it to him. I found him the next day 50yds from where I shot him
