I had shot a doe the night before, so I was going to wait this night out for the big one.  I was hunting over a corn field that had a Frigid Forage food plot planted between me and the corn field.  Throughout the course of the night, I saw several deer, including 4 small yearling bucks.  The biggest being a basket racked 8 pointer.  About 10 minutes before the end of legal shooting hours, I heard some commotion behind me.  I looked down the edge of the woods and I saw 6 bucks coming in!  The funny thing was that each one was bigger and bigger.  The first buck was a fork horn and I could see the buck on the end as well.  All I could see was horns.  He was definitely a shooter!  As each one stepped out, I anticipated the last one the most.  It seemed like an eternity, but he finally stepped out and I made a perfect double lung shot at 18 yards.  He ran less than 75 yards and fell over.  When it was all over, I looked back at the night's events and it seemed more clear than ever.  Dead deer don't grow and if I had shot the first buck I saw, I would never had a chance at this one.  Let Him Go So He Can Grow!!!!!!!!
