I shot this buck on a small piece of property in Paint Rock Valley. It's only 20 acres but has very little hunting pressure around it - for Jackson County that is. It was the first time I hunted the property all year. I scouted it a few days before and found a rub line. That doesn't mean much - just a buck has been through there at least once in the last 4-months. When the wind was right, I went back and climbed a tree. A few doe came by early in the afternoon and around 4:30, a doe came by trotting. She was wet with sweat. I knew a dog or buck was after her. I got ready and saw him coming at a fast trot. I whistled couple of times and he didn't acknowledge it. I shot him as he trotted through a small opening. He bucked and ran off at full speed. I found him 90 yards away. He's a good one.
