Sorry for the long post, but had to tell the story. Had a plan work out for a change at Blue Springs WMA this past hunt(14-16). I pulled a drag as I got close to my stand location (half mile walk, but worth it)...at 6:45am a big doe stepped out and just browsed around near me. A few minutes later the doe alerted and started looking nervously the way I had walked in. I look back to see a BIG bodied deer, nose down, following my drag line. He was coming right to me, so I got ready for the shot. That's when things got dicey..the doe decided she didn't want anything to do with the big fella and bolted. The buck threw his head up, grunted loudly and took off after her about 70 yards out.I threw the crosshairs on an opening and squeezed when he entered my field of view...hestumbled slightly and went into overdrive...I figured I hit him a bit far back so waited as long as I could stand it...got down, found hair and a little blood. He finally started bleeding heavily and only went about 75 yards...hit a little far back, but I guess still got a lung. He weighed 186 pounds, my biggest bodied deer to date. Not muchhorn wise though...the biologist aged him at 4 1/2...unusual for a WMAdeer to make it that long. His neck was swollen and tarsals black and stinkin'..He was ready, just don't think thegals are quite yet..any day now I hope. That big guy nearly broke my deer cart getting him out, bent the spokes going over a few blowdowns..talk about a job, I'm still feeling the stiffness from the long drag..but again, well worth it..lots of buck where few want to go!
