I should have started this some time back since we have been hard at it since the benginning of October but with all the rain things have been relatively uneventful. That changed this weekend, I primarily hunt two properties our family place in Fisher co and then we do a lot of culling of does and mgt bucks on a place down here in the hill country. This Saturday morning was pretty slow with the sighting of a single doe and young 8pt early, as I was preparing to call it quits I noticed a great buck typical 12 with a couple of cheaters. He was fun to watch as he cruised through looking for does. I gave him plenty of time to exit stage left and prepared to leave once again. Unloaded the gun closed the windows and packed up. One last look and there what is that a deer? Nope grab the binoculars and a quick check reveals a plump Sika spike. This is a larger high fence place with a small herd of elk and some blackbuck antelope. In years past we typically have shot any other exotics that end up inside the fence. A quick text to the landowner confirmed it was game on. I quietly reloaded my gun slowly raised the window and as they say the rest is history.
