Well, my 2020 buck tag has officially been punched! I’ve copied and pasted my FB post from Sunday below to save myself some typing:
Yesterday was a wonderful day to be in the Kentucky deer woods. I had been getting pictures of a number of nice bucks in one of our food plots, and the wind from the NNE coupled with the cold front pushing through created the perfect conditions for sneaking in to hunt yesterday afternoon. Within minutes after getting into the tree stand, I noticed a large buck bedded in the brush about 200 yards away. I kept my eyes on him all afternoon while also observing several deer using the food plot at close range. I decided to grunt at the buck an hour before the end of legal shooting time with the hope of coaxing him into bow range prior to dark. After the first grunt, he immediately stood up. After the third, he began slowly heading my direction but quickly disappeared into the brush and woods. About 20 minutes later, I heard a deer walking my way through the damp leaves from the direction I had last seen the buck, and soon I saw antlers. The buck stopped behind some limbs and worked a scrape and licking branch at 30 yards while I held at full draw. Once he finished at the scrape, he stepped into my shooting lane and I grunted at him with my mouth to stop him. I made the 25-yard shot and watched him run away, then heard him crash just out of sight. This 10-pointer is the biggest antlered deer I’ve taken, and I’m happy to have been able to take him quickly and cleanly with a bow.
