Story: I had never hunted this particular area before. I actually picked a point on the map the day prior using google earth where three big points came together. I walked in at daylight and set up about where i thought I thought i should be based on the map. I sat down against an old oak tree and no more than 10 min later, this bruiser came walking across one of the points in front of me. Looking back, I probably rushed the shot. I hit him low and ended up tracking him the rest of the day. The next day was Thanksgiving so I spent time with family but got back on the trail the day after thanksgiving and finally found him about 1PM on Friday buried under a huge pile of leaves and debris. A bear had tried to cover him up and was bedded about three feet from him when I found him- Amazing three days!!
