The only problem is, it was January. The October weather with temps in the low 80's pretty well had the buck hunting shut down in AL. A few does were moving in the late afternoon and of course, the small bucks came around tempting as always. So I went fishing and had a great time just visiting. My allergies kicked in big time and I spent most of one day sneezing and blowing my nose.

On the somewhat upside, Matt found a buck I shot back in 2008. We lost him due to being forced to wait almost an hour and a half before we could start trailing. A deluge rain wiped out all sign even though it was a good hit. He went into a piece of thick swamp and it was just a jungle. Matt was clearing some of the brush and found him less than 150-yards from where I shot him. Might make some sort of table decoration with the skull.

All toll, it has been a great year for me, a dozen deer and some ancilary stuff kept it interesting. I'm ready to go fishing, now.

It was a bow kill and fo course, if AL had checkin, I would do so. No question, Had I started triling immeidately as I do, I would have foudn him quickly. But, when you hunt another's land, you play by their rules.

SCN- Bass were in two feet of water. Check your calendar forlate Feb, early March see if you have a little lost time.

There was a doctor there from Enterprise and I truly think, had he notbeen there, I might have sneezed myself to death. Ever sneezed so rapidly you could not catch your breath? Thought I was going to pass out.

Surprised the squirrels had not gotten to it. It doesn't look damaged at all. Glad you found it.

Glad you had a good time and recovered the rack from that far back. I'm heading just below Selma in a week and a half and hope the temps drop. We hunted there last season on their rifle opener and it was hot as all get out and the hunting stunk.

I was surprised at how good it looked. I was a year off on when I shot it. It was 2009, late Oct. That makes it just over three years dead. Actually a little larger than I thought.

I believe that is one of the first bucks I killed with a crossbow. I know the first one I also shot at W.O. also an 8-pt. that I shot on camera for the Horton folks. He was not as large as this one. I can't recall one in between and Ibelieve I was too sick to hunt during that period.
