awesome Catrina, nice looking deer there. Nice Mass on those antlers. Congrats!

Thanks guys. So, I got this guy pretty early Saturday morning. It was a perfect morning, My husband, wtnhunt, walked me to the stand and within a minute after getting in the stand there was a deer moving out in the field below me. Couldn't make it out because it was too dim. about 7:30am a small spike came right in front of me about 30 yards away, he never knew I was there. He went through fence and left field. Then about 7:50am there were 7 does that came along the same path the spike went and fed in the beans and field out in front of me for about 10 minutes...then suddenly they all went to full alert looking towards my right...there he was, coming along the fence about 250 yards away. He was following a fence that ran parallel to me heading straight towards the does. I settle my scope on the 50cal Accura to a spot where there is a clearing...as he steps into the scope about 140 yards away, I squeeze the trigger. He juts forward about 30 yards and stops.... CRAP!! Did I miss him? I reload as fast as I can and he turns broadside giving me another shot.....BAM!! He drops his head and goes out of view. I message hubby and he comes to help me look for blood. We found hair where the deer was with my first shot then we find blood. After following blood for about 80 yards, something jumps up and takes off.....we back out and wait about an hour.....we go back and about another 40 yards there he was. Turns out, I hit him both times...first time was a little back and second time was in the neck. Just want to say how blessed I am to have such an amazing husband that supports me in my hunting efforts. Wtnhunt….YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

Yep, told her we needed to back out after i jumped him.  I could see he was struggling and figured he would not go far and lay back down if not pushed.  She wanted to keep pushing but I thought best to give him a little time.

I made my goal this season to be all about Allison and Catrina.  Mission accomplished.  We never got a single trail cam pic of Catrina's deer.  I had seen that buck a few days earlier when sitting over the carcass from Allison's.  I told her he was a nice buck and that she needed to sit that stand.  So glad she sat in the cold that morning, he did the same thing he did when I saw him just a little later in the morning.  Could not be anymore happy for the girls. They have had a good season and rifle hasn't even opened yet.

Mywork has paid off this year.
