Although it is not the biggest buck that I have drew on, it IS my first "8". I shot him in late Sept. this year. I was given permission to hunt 1 mile from my house, in a Catholic Sanctuary. This deer was 1 of 5 that I had shot there this year. Those 5 deer that were shot there were all shot in September. I estimate that I could have shot at least 15 deer there in the season combined. I wanted to take some more does. but I didn't want to spook them all from the area. I was actually holding out for one of the bigger bucks that was frequenting the area. He's still around.
