I killed this one the last day of muzzleloader. After a muzzleloader causing me 3 big deer out of the last 5 years, I broke down and bought a new TC Omega. Absolutely love it.

Got out to the stand I hung in July. Haven't been back in there since. I got out there about 5:15. Dropped my climber and my lunch off about 1/2 way to my stand and was planning on getting down about 11 and going to eat where I dropped that stuff off then go to a different location and just stay out all day. At 6:45 I had a 2 1/2 yo 8 pt come in down below me and was tearing up trees and pulling them out of the ground. Ears laid back and pi$$ed about something. I wasn't going to shoot him but was scoping him making sure he was the buck I thought he was from on the camera. Then there was a bigger buck that came walking behind him but was in a thicket and couldn't tell his size but he looked older. As I was watching them, I heard something behind me and looked and saw a doe crest the hill. Then here came another doe behind her. I was keeping tabs on them and the 2 bucks in my scope......until I saw this guy behind those 2 does. I did a 180 in my stand and waited for a clear shot. Hit him right in the heart from 100 yards and he ran about 50 yards.

No giant but was glad to get him....

I shot a 2.5 that dressed out to 170 a few years ago....but that was in Kentucky...lol. Sometimes they are older than the tooth wear indicates. But the real indicator for the age based on the jawbone pic was that the third molar was only partially erupted....the gumline was high on the last cusp. I've not seen that on a 3 year old.
