Story: "I was hunting on our lease out of a friends box stand and had only seen a couple of Does early that morning. I decided to get out of the stand and still hunt along the edge of a clear-cut where I had seen a lot of sign. It was about 8:00 in the morning and I heard a stick snap at the edge of a finger of woods and the clear-cut and that is when I saw the buck step into the open. I stood completely still and when he looked back at some Does that were following him, I slid the rifle off my shoulder and shot him through the lungs. He ran up the hill and disapeared on the other side. I ran around a logging road that went to the top and caught him coming out and I shot him again, this time breaking his front shoulder. We trailed the blood for about 50 yards through thick briars and found him dead."
