The stars were truly aligned for me to get this guy on the wall! I had 40 acres on public thoroughly scouted all summer. Here in wisconsin it was a real gem only to find out it was heavily logged off 2 days before. In a wild chain of events I got permission for 10 acres and ended up hanging a stand the night before opener on land I have never even seen. Woke up opening morning with the flu,puking like crazy but headed out anyways. After a half hour of walking I finally found my stand drenched in sweat in broad daylight. 30 minutes after being in my stand this buck came in and gave me a 38 yard shot. Terrible shot through the hind quarters due to a cable issue but still only went 40 yards. Very blessed to have this 124" buck as my first!
