With a fresh blanket of snow, I worked my way back to the tree that produced my big eight point from the previous season. Upon arrival, I noted the lack of deer traffic on the trails and opted to set up in a different location, further behind the swamp. Although it took another hour to get settled in to a fresh tree, I felt better about my new area.
I made the right decision. Sure enough, this little warrior buck comes walking right down the pipe about an hour later. When I grunted to stop him, he quartered towards me, giving me an unusual angle. I took the shot anyway and subsequently made a bad hit. After a good 2 hour wait and a long, tense track, we found him bedded down in the swampy alders, expired.
This buck was a fighter 'til the finish. He had five busted tines.
