Steven Howard, My Old 6 Point

6 Point Buck

6 Point Buck

It was New Years Day ( 12-31-11 ) when I killed this wonderful 6 point.

I had set up a short 10-foot ladder stand over a pine row, where about 30 scrapes have been worked over the past few weeks. And to my right is thick brush where there is a creek bottom. So 2 days later, I finally had the perfect wind to hunt that stand. So I climbed in at 4:18 p.m.; and I wasn't there 7 minutes when that buck came through the creek bottom working the scrapes. So when he stopped, I took my shot. He ran about 60 yards to the creek bottom were he was bagged up. Weight-155 lbs, and was killed on Hwy 2 in Laurel Hill, Florida.

Good Job!

Congratulations, that's a pretty nice buck you have there, Steven. Sounds like you did your research. Proper stand placement in relation to the scrapes you found, and taking into account for the wind, was a well thought out and properly executed (no pun intended) plan that got you a really nice 6-point buck with good mass and tine length. He looks like a mix of some of that Yellow River Wildlife Management Area and Alabama genes.

Congratulations, again, on a well-laid plan with a good result.
