Default Black Hills 8 point buck down

Saturday I went out to my stand before sunup. I set my scent lures out and settled in. When it was finally light enough to see, I started calling with an estrus bleat call. After working it for 45 minutes, I had 3 different bucks come in from 3 different directions. one was a small bodied spike, the 2nd one was a slightly bigger bodied fork horn, the third one had a nice body so I waited for him. Just as I shot, he moved to challenge the smaller bucks and I missed. the two smaller bucks ranup and over the opposite hill while the bigger one ran up the hill to my left and stopped. I had to lean back to get a clear shot. I took aim and fired. He ran down the hill and then up again and dropped at 7:15 am about 25 yards from where I shot him. I called my boyfriend and he said he would be there shortly. I took a few pictures and then started field dressing him. I was almost done by the time my boyfriend got there. His eyes bugged out when he saw my buck, and said that it was a good buck for our area. My deer season is over until muzzleloader season starts December 11th.

Congrat on a successful deer hunt. Its awesome when you have all that excitement going on after you just sit down for the hunt. Makes the time fly by when bucks are running at you from every direction. Very nice.
