My Third 8 pt. Buck
Showing off my 3rd 8 pt. from the back of our Toyota Tacoma at my daughter's home.
My 8 pt. on the back of the 4-wheeler at Homewood Hunting Club in Claiborne County.
I shot my 3rd 8 pt. in January 2003 at Homewood Hunting Club in Claiborne County. I was hunting Mike's Patch and it was getting late in the evening when I noticed a buck walking out in the far right corner. I could not believe that their was another buck further behind him and they were looking straight at me. I watched them get closer and closer and decided to shoot the first one that walked out. The second one had a higher rack but this one to me had a wider rack. When I shot he just stood there and finally took off into the woods. The other buck stood there for about 20 seconds and took off back into the woods. I waited about 20 minutes and made my way tracking the blood and found my buck no more than 30 yards into the woods. I walked back to my stand and got my 4-wheeler and headed back towards camp to wait for Bob and the hunters to come in. I needed help in getting my deer out. I was so happy to get another 8 pt., and hopefully one day I will get another buck...maybe a bigger one!
