buck in my life I ever got was a 9 point. Shot him right in his bed while still hunting a deep ravine. I had no party permit at the time

This happened, only my buck tag.This guy was very smart. When the hunting pressure got on him to where he had to leave where he was bedding In this deep

Ravine,, just below his bedroom there was a gully wash out that ran quite a bit towards the ravine bottom. The gully wash out was deep enough so that when he jumped

Into it, he was below the line of sight of any hunter. The buck could easily low crawl down the gully to a point where when he new it was safe. He would sneak forward out of the ravine

And then cross the road to go into the woods on the other side .

That morning, I went on watch at the end of the ravine before daylight.. Man, you talk about cold and frosty just trying to sit still there leaning up against the tree.

I was in full blaze orange but I was also wearing long johns and checkered red and black wool pants to keep warm.The coat color was dulled out in orange because of the years of hunting use.

Come 9:30 a.m. I started to still hunt into the ravine bottom at a very very slow pace. In the ravine bottom there was a active stream running to help cover up any sounds I may make. Of

Course you do your best not to. Now there was heavy tall pines running up the sides of this deep ravine. So every so often,I would slowly squat down and give a good look under them to see any

Deer that may be in my vision. This went on for better then half an hour.

I came to a fairly deep gully run off.I slowly crossed the gully to where I could squat and take a look up under those pines. We,ll to my surprise I could see deer legs standing very still.

Now remember that I had no doe take permit.

Ok, I am a lefty so I shoot off of my left shoulder.This was to me perfect for this situation so I slowly raised my gun to the shooting position and then I did a slow frame side step to see the deer clearly.

Holy crap, there was a huge deer standing very still on a very small plateau but I could not determine for sure if it was a buck.Behind the deers head there was all kinds of tree limbs.

I had to wait till he moved his head.My sights were right behind his right shoulder and I said to myself as my heart was loudly banging in my ears , there,s no way this deer has a chance if it,s a buck.

Then it happened. The buck new something was up so he very very slowly turned his head.It seemed like a eternity before he did move. And then I new, boom the 12ga. Went moving a 1oz. Remington slug

At his shoulder, then he took one bound toward the ravine the one I had just crossed.I racked in another slug knowing he was all mine.I quickly paced up to his bed and looked into the gully.

And there he was just where he jumped, dead. The slug went through behind the right shoulder and just stopped under the skin on the other side. Perfect I thought. It was over. A beautiful heavy beam 9 point buck. This was in southern tier N.Y. Near Cameron Mills, N.Y..
I will follow up next on dragging this Buck out of this deep ravine.

Great story mate, with an even better ending. Congratulations on a fine buck. Some pics would have rounded things off nicely.

Cheers, Vince Cheers

Yes Vince, but the pic,s I put in last mate. Your a very kind gentleman I new it right off. I could have had the pic,s in correctly but I was nicely told just could have kept on replying for all 3 entries.Now I Know.

What a exciting memory and experience it was. I had hunted at the time for a good 20 years and had killed many deer. But , because I had to wait till the Buck turned his head to make sure he had horn,s I developed Buck fever. It,s a big adrenalin rush you feel and your heart rate is just pounding in your ears. Your on hi alert type feeling , it feels great. This is what we hunters all want to experience but it takes certain conditions to set you off.

Thanks you kindly Vince for you nice comments.


I,m a newbie but a Senior hunting experienced newbie. Been hunting for over 40 years. And I still hunt deer.
I,ve have lost track from over the years on how many Whitail,s I have dumped.Got lost a couple of times but I still got out around sunset. I am here as a good friend to help with any questions that from knowledge under my belt I can answer. God Bless. Thank you for letting me sit at your table.TwoSeventy .
