    Bedded this buck on opening morning. Circled around to put a stalk on and three other guys were moving in on the area. I went down the ridge a ways to glass some other bucks hoping they might push him my way. The short version is they missed and deer indeed came my way. He stopped out of sight in a creek bottom about 500 yards away. I was able to flush him and make a 200 yard shot. 6.5 creedmoor with a 143 ELD-X dropped him with one shot. DSC01161-2.JPG
