Story: I had only been in my stand for about 30 minutes when this huge bodied buck came trotting out of the woods headed for the opposite side of the powerlines.I tried to stop him but he just gave a quick glance and kept on going.I tried to stop him again and this time he messed up and stopped...He was dead before he hit the ground. I thought he was an eight point but he turned out to be a six pointer.He had just a shade over an 18 1/2 inch inside spread (My widest spread yet).My taxidermist aged him at 4 1/2 years. He was also the largest bodied buck that I have ever killed (215 pounds).I was hunting by myself and it took me 3 1/2 hours to drag him out and load him in the truck (but I did it).I am paying for it now by being really sore.It was especially rough the next day in church when they kept asking everybody to please stand (LOL)...but it was all worth it!!!!
