My First Deer
I wanted nothing more than to take a deer in the 2015/2015 deer season. I tried in archery season on public land and on several other hunts at various ranches. I could never close the deal. Finally, on January 16th, the 2nd to the last day of late anterless season in Jack County, I got my spike! I was out at LLL Outfitters in Jacksboro, TX with my little bro. One the second night of our hunt, just before end of shooting light, a spike walked 10 yards in front of the blind from our left to right. It circled wide then came back to the feeder about 40 yards away. I got off a shot and it took off. We tracked it for about 30 minutes using a blood light since it had gotten dark after we gave it a good 15 muinutes to expire. We located it about 100 yards away piled up at the edge of the thick woods bordering the clearing. Nothing like waiting ’til the last minute!
