Yes there is a story no calling or rattling all the other bucks were doing that for my buddy . He is the one who shot it got it in stark county ohio on sun at 415 after watching it for 45 min . He said that it was only coming out of the brush to chase a smaller 8 point away from his ladie and then right back in . I have been watching/trying to get this buck for 3 years now while my buddy has been over seas fighting . He is a mp doing convoy security i sent him alot of trailcam pics of this dude and randy did get to hunt for 2 weaks while he was on leave but never seen him i myself only had seen him once while hunting . This late oct when he got home i told him i had a food plot planted and a treestand ready for him were old frank the tank was living and told him it was all him he deserved it after serving 2 and a half tours over there . randy said it was crazy watching this guy for that long and not being able to get a shot but finally he came out to check his old ladie out but was head on at 30 yrds but just then fate kicked in and the 8 point came back across the crick and frank turned to beat some ass and gave randy a quartering away 30 yrd shot . It was a great shot the old boy only went 40 to 50 yrds and was done . I was hunting other property but only 5 min away i had just sent randy a text messsage that siad i had drew first blood on a ground hog that was working on my foodplot when my phone vibrated back it siad bbd. I looked at it and thought he was pissing with me about the groundhog but then it went off again and said i got frank i think so i called him and asked he was shaking so much i couldnt understand him so i know it was foreal i told him set still i was going to be there in about an hr so i got down ran home got the lantern and camera and 2 beers . when i got there he was in the treestand still shaking like a leaf he started to get down and i asked were was frank standing he told me and as i was walking over to the spot i seen white belly and antlers i yeild bbd right there he is randy . He replyed as dont bullshit me i told him i wasnt and then i think he took about 6 steps down out of a 20 foot stand and was running towards me i thought he was going to loose it . He told me he had been shot at had roadside bombs go off rpg 's shot at him and he was never as nervous as he was when frank turned side ways to give him that shot.. We were both so happy he really is a great kid and really deserved this deer it was his first big buck and his first bow kill . we got it dressed out and then worked our asses off to get it back over the crick and to the truck at 215 we both really enjoyed that beer afterwords .
