I shot this buck on a small piece of property in Paint Rock Valley.  It's only 20 acres but has very little hunting pressure around it - for Jackson County that is.  It was the first time I hunted the property all year.  I scouted it a few days before and found a rub line.  That doesn't mean much - just a buck has been through there at least once in the last 4-months.  When the wind was right, I went back and climbed a tree.  A few doe came by early in the afternoon and around 4:30, a doe came by trotting.  She was wet with sweat.  I knew a dog or buck was after her.  I got ready and saw him coming at a fast trot.  I whistled couple of times and he didn't acknowledge it.  I shot him as he trotted through a small opening.  He bucked and ran off at full speed.  I found him 90 yards away.  He's a good one.
