    Well it all started in early August when I started hunting a new property and put cameras out. My first camera pull I had this buck on camera. He had three points coming off of his left G2. So me and my good buddy started calling him TRI. Here is the picture below.

    TRI was my number one hit lister during bow season. Although a nice nine pointer came along and I decided to shoot him as he was another mature buck on the farm. Here is my bow buck I kill November 7.

    So, first season shotgun season came along so I decided to get a tag. I sat all weekend without seeing any shooter and hoping to see TRI but never saw him. Sat all day Monday with not seeing anything and Tuesday was a great day I had 12 year and half year olds or younger does all run by me in the stand and TRI was running right behind them pushing them. The 2nd rut was in full swing on my farm. With the weather being warmer the younger does we're still in heat and I had bucks pushing does all weekend. Anyways I made a great shot in the heart and the rest is history! Thanks for reading. Good luck to the rest of you guys and girls in filling your tag!
