A farmer in Chatham county was having trouble with deer tearing his electric wire down.He gave my hunting parter & me permission to hunt.Due 2 the size of his pasture,we could hunt each corner across from each other,we was about a mile apart.About ever 70 yds there was windrows in the pasture i'm hunting.The end of the windrows stop about 50 yds from the wood's line.My ladder stand setup is in line with the windrows on a tree at the woods line.I had 2 windrows between my stand and the back of the pasture woods.Well 2 make it storter.We made plans to go the morning ather thanksgiving.We wanted 2 get in our stands before daylight.Usely i have 2 call him so he be up & ready.Yourtruly overslept & that is very rare on a hunt.The sky was geting light when we got there.I had 2 walk about a mile 2 my stand & halfway i heard 2 bucks fighting behind the last windrow to the woods which was 2 windrows from me for i was going right 2 my stand.Man,i got to get to my stand.In it i be able 2 see over the windrows & it be shooting light time i get there.I know bucks don't fight long,but i may be able 2 grunt 1 in.They stop when i had about 100 yds 2 go.I got 2 my stand & lean my savage 110 30.06 on the steps.(It was daylight by then)I got some scent bombs out of my fanny pack & before i could take the lid off,this buck came running out from behind the last windrow & turn & started going away from me.I drop everthing and grab my .06 up.I don't like 2 shoot at them running, but i have took quiet a few of them like that.I thought he was going 2 give me the texas heart shot,but he turn & started toward the woodline i was on.He was broadside then.I was on him from the time i got my gun up.I had my crosshairs on his head.He was about 2 the woods.If i was going 2 take him i better do it now.Well before i could shoot he stop.I move the crosshairs 2 his back & touch off.He drop right there.I let bucks biger walk but they was 2 & 3 year old & i was hunting a mature buck.They be on the hit list in an other year or 2.Or someone else get them.Which is okay with me.This is'nt no big buck by any means.I enjoy ever day i'm in the woods hunting,river fishing,just doing whatever.I thought i share this hunt with u & i thought this other horn was interesting.He had wire groves in 1 horn so he was 1 of them tearing his fence down.
