What a morning !! Pulled into my little 100a honey hole an was in position by 5:30, sitting back glassing with low light i had a young spiker feeding 80m from me, with not needing any meat an targeting big bucks i let him be , 15 minutes later with a bit more light i noticed 2 does a few hundred meters up so i set my path to close the gap ( an did some glassing on the way ) as i got closer i picked up on a buck , with a change of path i headed up the side of the hill to try get s better angle , pulled up on top with a full view of my hunting access i decided to have a glass, with another 2 young does only 100m off me an no sign of the buck i glassed a few spots that were previously hidden from view , an than i seen him, surrounded by his girls 2 very distinguishable antlers on the hill on the opposite side of the property , with this buck clearly bigger that the previous one i seen.
As i had basically a full view of the property it was easy to plan my stalk after watching them for a few minutes to try work their movements.
So down the hill i went an up the next hill as i last seen them on the sky line feeding.
As i slowly made my way across the sky line towards where i last seen them i spotted a couple does an 1 pure white doe who was by his side earlier , a little further an i tucked up behind a scrub tree an there he was surrounded by 20-30 does , as i looked through the scope i had my target, instantly noticing this guys antlers hanging well past his body as he fed , with him occasionally showing off his palms to me as he was facing away from me , after what felt like a life time of me trying to calm my self down an control my shaking ( as he was clearly bigger than any buck i have ever shot by a mile ) he finally turned broad side to me at around 150m , i pulled my 300wsm in tight to my shoulder an let him have it , dropping him on the spot ! #hunting #huntinglife #tikkat3 #tikka #300wsm #oneshotonekill #huntingaustralia #bowhuntingaustralia
