Well, this morning I found myself north of here on an Alabama management area hanging from a tree. I was sitting in a select cut over looking a bottom. At 7:15 a.m. I heard a faint grunt. Now , after 30 years of deer hunting I had never heard a deer actually grunt so I was kind of wondering if someone across the bottom was blowing on their grunt tube. About the time I ran this thought through my mind, two does ran directly behind my tree and into the bottom. Well I figured the buck I heard grunt would be behind them so I stood up in my stand and started looking for him. After about a minute I didn't see him so I sat down. About the time I sat down, he grunted louder so I stood up again. This time though I saw him coming out of a draw not 20 yds from me. He looks up at me but his mind is on something else so he keeps coming. At aboutten steps behind me I pull the trigger and he takes off. I chamberanother round and pick him up in my scope to shoot a second time but I can see blood all over his side and about that time he falls and doesn't get up. He was a solid nine point with stickers all over the base of his horns. He was aged at 4 1/2 and weighed 165 lbs.Here is a couple of pictures.

Here is where he fell. I took the pic out of my stand. He was about 100 yards away.



Here is a couple of pictures that I took of him where he laid when I walked up to him.

Great buck and hunt for sure, thanks for sharing. They are some really nice bucks being taken this year and we still have time for it to really heat up more. Get out there and safe hunting to all!!!

I didn't go back to the check station the first day but I heard there were some pretty good ones brought in. If I can remember I'll e-mail you a couple of pictures that they brought in when I was cleaning mine.
