Thanks guys,

Yeah, luck definitely played a role in getting that one. If I was to try to walk up within 40 yards of a bedded mature buck any other day, it probably would not have happened. The wind saved me that day, as I was walking in through scattered brush in 4 ft tall grass....brb

Ok, I'm back...anyway, my wife had spotted this buck a couple weeks prior to me hunting this spot. Actually she had seen him in the exact location where I shot him. I didn't realize that I was getting that close to the spot as I was walking in that morning, but I guess it worked out...any further away and he would not have heard me rattling (and I wouldn't have seen him) and any closer and he probably would have seen me when I was walking in. Luck was definitely on my side that day.
