Story: It pays off when u hunt all day! The morning was the coldest opening day i have ever hunted. Now to the hunt, From daylight till 8:45am i didn't see a deer. From 8:45am till 11:30am i saw 5 does and a little 5pt. chasing a doe. The clouds moved in and the wind quit blowing at 11:30am. From 11:30am till 1:30pm I didn't see a deer. Then at 1:35pm I had a 2 1/2 year old 16in 8pt. come in making a bead line from were i had walked in with a drag to my tree. Then at 2:15pm i had 3 does walk directly under me. 2:25pm a 6 and 3pt. came crusing threw. As soon as they left a doe came in and fed on acrons. Then at 4:08pm i just finished texting my cousin about the deer movement when i looked to my left and standing there in the thicket making a scrape was BIG SLOP himself! I had one chance to take the brute and at 4:09pm I let my 243.wssm loose. The big boy fell in his scrape. Gross at 150 and 1/8!!! My biggest deer yet!!!
