Animal: 204" Non Typical Whitetail
Location: South Texas SOE Hunts with Mike Stroff
Weapon: PSE Dream Season RDX 365
Suzy, Jacob and I were hunting with Mike Stroff SOE Hunts in South Texas. He has MLD permits on over 30,000 acres in South Texas. The Texas Parks and Wildlife grants MLD permits to qualifying ranches to help manage the size of the herd and the buck to doe ratio for optimal herd health. We were hunting a giant fully mature buck that had eluded several hunters during the season and had literally disappeared during the rut. Well luckily for Suzy he showed back up post rut and so the hunt was on. We were weathered out with high wind and rain on our first attempt. So we decided to wait for the perfect weather and conditions to try him again. So with temps in the the 40's for the high and the perfect wind we set up in our Muddy blind. This time it didn't take long and he showed up feeding up the road on the new growth from all of the rain. We just keep getting more quality H2O here in South Texas! He stopped at 24 yards and Suzy put the Rage Xbow Xtreme in the cage. After a short tracking job it was all high fives and hugs as Suzy just shot the biggest buck of her life with Jacob and me running camera. A huge thank you to "Uncle" Randy Morrison and Mike Stroff at SOE Hunts! We will definitely be back!
