Story: There isn't much story behind this buck. I was hunting over on the family farm and I have seen this buck several times but never within shooting range. On the Friday of thanksgiving weekend I decided to sit in the stand that afternoon to see if I could get some meat for the freezer. 30 minutes before dark I heard something running towards me. I picked up the old TC, looked through the scope and it was the biggest buck I have ever seen on that farm. It was during the rut so this buck was right behind a hot doe. Luckily the doe decided to turn and come running in front of the stand. As soon as he walked in front of the shooting lane which was about 30 yards I grunted. He immediately stopped and I slowly squeezed the trigger. I made a perfect shot on the big buck, he ran twenty yards and piled up. When I walked up to him I couldn't believe how big he was. I was speechless.
