I pretty much fell in love with this deer the first time I captured his picture on a trail camera. He is defenately not the biggest buck on the mountain but I really liked the kickers, or TRASH as we call them here in the south, off both of his G2's. I caught pictures of him at least 4 nights a week all season long. Never a picture in the daytime until Thanksgiving morning. I passed up over 40 bucks because I decided I was only going to hunt this buck this year. So the chase began on the opening day of bow season here in TN. The last Saturday of September. I never seen him not once from the tree stand until this morning. But I knew he was still there from the trail camera pictures. I was in the treestand 30 minutes before daylight this morning. Around 8:30 this morning a group of nine does came onto the ridge I was hunting to graze on the acorns. They were there feeding for about 30 minutes. Thanks to Scent Lock they never knew I was on the same planet with them. When all of a sudden they all "Locked Up" and started looking in the same direction. It sounded like a D9 Cat Dozer was coming up the ridge. Well It was "SKYSCRAPER"...He flushed the does like they were a covey of quail. Does broke and ran in every direction. He chased them all over the ridge with his noes up their rear....UNTIL.....at 9:08 AM he stopped in a clearing...Gave me enough time to confirm he was who I thought he was...20 seconds later the Browning X-Bolt chambered in 26 Nosler barked....He never took a step.....

Congratulations.  I have only ever gotten one buck that I had on camera, and didn't even know that I had pictures until months later.
