    Here's Tall Boy. This buck showed up on my property Sept. 28th for the first time. Since then I've had over 60 sets of trail cam pics of him all over my property. Last Saturday morning he stepped into my shooting lane at 33 yards, but I couldn't get a shot off. Tonight, he came into a rattling/grunting sequence and spotted my decoy from a distance. He blew at the decoy twice(before I ever saw him). I assumed it was just a doe, but just a couple minutes later he appeared and walked right into my decoy. I shot him at 12 yards. I guess I hit him just little forward, but not much from the footage. Anyways, he dropped in his tracks right there and it took another arrow to put him down. He's easily the toughest buck I've ever shot. He just didn't want to die. It was the most insane few minutes of hunting I've ever experienced.
