Story: On Thanksgiving morning I sat down in my climber and was hunting beside an old logging road watching a scrape. A doe came out about 9:30 a.m. over to my right and started eating grass. A few minutes later I heard something running in the leaves in front of me. A 6-pointer came and behind it was a 10-pointer grunting at the 6. The 6 moved out of the way and the 10 went straight to the doe and chased her around in circles. She turned and ran in front of my tree about 5 feet from the base of tree. The 10 followed and stopped about 8 yards from me. I aimed at base of neck hoping to catch spine or lungs from a top shot. He was standing so close that instead I hit the tip end of his tailbone. He dropped and got his front end up and I put another behind his shoulder that did him in. I looked up the hill and the 6-pointer and doe were walking back and forth threw some thick brush. I waited about 10 minutes and took the doe and gave her to a friend in need of meat.
